    "It's a perfect match for the gorgeous, dizzying artwork in a sumptuouspalette-overlaid panels add intricate choreography to fight scenes, anddetailed, whirling splash pages beg for long-lingering looks. Couple that, alongwith a handful of Eisner nominations, with a multicultural cast oftough-as-nails women who all fight for their own honor, and this is a series towatch out for." - Booklist

    "It's ambitious and challenging (two qualities that are not often valued,but that probably should be), under a faade of violence and sacrifice.Rio's art is lush and detailed, and is more than capable of keeping up with thefar-reaching story." - PW
