"I mean, you gotta have something to do between knitting and baking. Why not fight eldritch horrors?... Ahoy Comics' latest supernatural series, ASH & THORN, where the savior of the day isn't some muscle-bound superhero or a scantily-clad femme fatale but instead, a little old lady named Lottie Thorn." - io9

"Golden Child meets the Golden Girls... If you're a fan of subverting tropes or just fun, engaging comics, I'd suggest grabbing the first issue... Lady Peruvia Ashlington-Voss and Lottie Thorn are comics' newest odd/old couple, and they are here to save the world." - SMASH PAGES

"McCourt and Lee have brought something fresh to a genre that sorely needed it. ... You might think you've heard the story before, but you haven't. The world's protector who isn't sure about world saving yet. The mentor figure. The sidekick. Sound familiar? Think again. ... Our heroes, Lottie and Peruvia, are in their 70s and will tell you themselves, they're getting too old for this world-saving business. It's an inventive idea strengthened by Soo Lee's artwork. In fact, the all-female creative team brings this book to life. Praise must also be given to Pippa Bowland's colors and Jill Thompson's fantastic cover." - Adventures In Poor Taste

"Ash & Thorn #1 takes the well-worn story of a champion standing up for the planet and delivers something new... If you just want a kick-ass world-saving story, it's all here. But, McCourt fills the comics with moments that it's hard to not laugh and take it for the comedic tone it's going for. ... Soo Lee provides the art and is able to balance the serious and humor. ... A fun debut featuring some interesting protagonists you don't see every day." - GRAPHIC POLICY

"'Buffy' Meets 'Golden Girls'" - The Hollywood Reporter

"An apocalyptic, supernatural fantasy series with a difference... There's something of Douglas Addams and Ian Edginton in the way Mariah McCourt writes her characters. ... Once again Lee's artwork does a grand job of bringing the story to life. There's a few eldritch moments that are Lovecraftian enough to ring a bell for me... I'm going to continue recommending that you grab a copy (and possibly a cup of tea and a slice of cake) and give this one a look." - BIG COMIC PAGE
