The Mire: 5/5 on Comics Bulletin!

The Mire gets 5/5 stars over at Comics Bulletin!

Ideas of love and loss are a frequent sight in Cloonan's output, but The Mire takes a different approach towards the themes, and the result is a richly rewarding, dense and compressed story which feels light, open and dreamlike. It's a romantic story which plays like a gothic take on classic British folklore. It is, in short, a complete delight. -Steve Morris
