Stripping people to their real, bare vestiges is one of the core themes in Simmons' work, and there are few things that facilitate that [better] than a post-apocalyptic, each-man-for-himself survival situation. --Zainab Akhtar" Much like a good old-fashioned horror movie, a comic such as this, to be any good, relies upon setting up an interesting mood and environment. Without a doubt, Simmons succeeds in this. He gives us some compelling characters among his ragtag group of hardened misfits. And we re left wanting to turn the page as a morbid sense of curiosity sets in. Of course, things will get darker, as well as more disgusting. This is raw stuff, kids. --Henry Chamberlain" Simmons renders his tale in a blunt, almost primitive visual style; the ink-drenched darkness mirrors the unrelenting blackness of his vision. " After reading Josh Simmons' Black River I had to read Cormac McCarthy's The Road and watch Requiem for a Dream to cheer myself up. If Simmons' artwork wasn't so spellbindingly hallucinatory I would have stopped reading this grim odyssey... If you have a stomach for inhuman hopelessness, I highly recommend Black River! --Mark Frauenfelder" Simmons is a grimly witty take-no-prisoners storyteller, and his smart and violent tale is well paced and startling.--Richard Pachter This is a book about survival, told with delicacy and weight. ... This is a very fine comic indeed, and depending on how much gore you can stomach, this is a must read.--Daniel Carpenter Black River, unlike the many other post-apocalyptic stories, doesn t give its reader the satisfaction of a glimmer of hope. Nothing is going to get better. No one is going to survive. --Alex Hoffman" Black River is one of the most uncompromisingly brutal, bleak and violent books I ve read in quite some time. --Andy Wolverton" Black Riveris one of the most uncompromisingly brutal, bleak and violent books I ve read in quite some time. --Andy Wolverton" ...[A]n amazing depiction of bleakness... Simmons is no stranger to creating atmospheric horror, using dense black-and-white linework for vivid depictions of destroyed cities and people with nothing left to lose. Dead, angular trees, plain, grimy clothing, and eyes that range from burnt-out to sheer insanity mix with swirling, angry backgrounds, setting a scene better than any horror movie could. Black River, unlike the many other post-apocalyptic stories, doesn't give its reader the satisfaction of a glimmer of hope. Nothing is going to get better. No one is going to survive. --Alex Hoffman Black River is one of the most uncompromisingly brutal, bleak and violent books I've read in quite some time. --Andy Wolverton Black Riveris one of the most uncompromisingly brutal, bleak and violent books I ve read in quite some time. --Andy Wolverton"
