The story is clever and fast-paced, and its emphasis on women is refreshing and inspired ... Adler is pure entertainment, establishing a strong, intelligent heroine and a foundation that leaves the door open for future (past) adventures. - Foreword Reviews There's something massive at work behind the mash-up hook of this story, and the more you read the deeper into that sense of scale you get. It's an addictive feeling - SyFy Wire "Combines dynamic, manga-esque linework with an ornate, Bryan Talbot-style eye for detail, meticulously designing everything from an Art Nouveau concert poster to some authentic periodicals of the day" - SFX With complex artwork and a story that puts a unique spin on some of the 19th century's greatest literary heroines, this is one adventure you'll want to sign-on for - Kabooooom From fans of the various literary properties to those who have only minimal information on any of them, "Adler" #1 is both educational and entertaining - Multiversity Comics A highly detailed and enjoyable adventure - Monkeys Fighting Robots At its finest, Adler is a delightful, progressive penny dreadful that reminds readers of its Victorian inspirations - Comic Watch
