Kim Reaper is such a fun concept for a graphic novel! Why work at a bakery to pay your rent when you can be a part time grim reaper?! I loved seeing Becka and Kim's relationship and thought that each of the otherworldly encounters they experienced were interesting and well illustrated. From haunted ships to zombie hordes this graphic novel will definitely keep you turning the pages.

Cute cute cute. I love the concept of someone working as a part time Grim Reaper.

This was a great premise but I became irritated with the artwork over the course of the story, so I stopped paying close attention to the nuances of it. So I felt pretty lukewarm about it. IT may appeal to teens more.

Maybe five years ago this comic would have been for me, but not this day and age.

Props for writing college students accurately, with the mishmash of adolescent freedom and adult responsibility, but that might be the one thing I can commend this comic for doing.

Art was real wonky, especially with the arm proportions. I'm not a fan of that full-cheek look with the mouths--it looks like they're talking while chewing. But art is subjective, and other readers may find this art style charming.

I'm gonna pass on future installments for this story.
