(From the Slings & Arrows Comic Guide)

The story is set at Highland ER, a small hospital run by Jayeen “Chicken” Michaels and her staff who have to deal with the results of an inner-city bombing. Author Jimmy Robinson’s artwork and story are very accomplished. The layouts (4 horizontal panels per page) suggest that this may have begun life as a TV or film storyboard. Good characterization, consistency, and flow in both the art and writing go a long way to making the somewhat mundane subject matter appealing. One wished for more, even if the blurb on the back cover describes the pages as “beautifully illustrated in stunning watercolor” when they obviously had their tones applied with grey markers. ~SW
