Reviews by Jack Gabriel:

Author Maria Dahvana Headley appreciates the power of narratives in their ability to explore us, and I felt myself nodding with recognition as those truths were explored in this aggressive, beautiful book.
These party goers are all the more irresistible for their terrible flaws. It’s a night for dark deeds and ridiculous hilarity.
This fantasy horror is flawed but beautiful. It’s unsure of what it wants to be, yet it’s a thoughtful, creepy adventure well worth watching.
It could have been the disaster many expected, but Ghost in the Shell is a self-aware adaptation that manages to straddle the needs of hardcore fans and new converts alike.
In this comedic vigilante quest for justice, there are no cookie-cutter characters. The bad guys are vulnerable and the powerful are impotent.
