G4TV’s Fresh Ink: Pick of the Week.
“…strong, tough, intelligent women who don’t have ridiculously disproportionate boobs. Thanks a good thing!” -Blair Butler, Fresh Ink

iFanboy.com’s DON’T MISS
“One of our favorite writers” -iFanboy.com

JK Parkin, Comic Book Resources: Pick of the Week
“…a likable female protagonist, gritty realism and enough of a hook that simply makes you want more at the end of the issue.” -JK Parkin

“…Rucka leaves a lasting impression for this series’s opening issue.
” -Newsarama

“Stumptown is Scalped meets Criminal, and that sounds like a comic I wouldn’t mind reading each month.” -Comic Book Resources

“…fans of Rucka or the genre owe it to themselves to check out Stumptown…” – IGN.com

“Stumptown is solid crime fiction without getting too garish or going too soft. The fact that the art and design are top notch only serves to solidify the quality.” -Tor.com

“It’s got a fun, Rockford Files/Magnum PI vibe to it that I didn’t realize I’d been missing. I haven’t had this much fun with a mystery story since the first arc of Fables.” -Robot 6

“Rucka’s modern, noir-influenced detective tale grabs your attention, and both he and artist Southworth have done an admirable job of turning the city of Portland, Oregon into one of the story’s characters.” -Comics Alliance

“I had a blast reading it, and when my only complaint was that I want the next issue in my hands right away, that’s a great sign.” -Read About Comics

“Greg Rucka and Matthew Southworth have created a world I’m dying to visit again, and the next thirty days of waiting to see what happens next are going to be rough.” -The Quarter Bin

“Both the artist and writer have built an intriguing and engrossing world here. Wonderful comic. Buy it.” -Comic Proportions

“[Rucka's] one of very few writers in comics who not only write about women, but consistently get it right. Stumptown’s first issue is solid. Go buy it. Now.” -Hive Five Comics
