Here are a few independent review extracts
"It’s rare that a comic completely catches me off
guard. With this series though, I was caught off guard completely when I read
it, so much so that I leaned back in my chair and was like, “Damn… you got me.” around half way
through the second issue when the bomb is dropped on you... I was blown
away." Comic $astards, US Reviewer gave it 5 out of 5
"Daley’s unique, dry wit is the highlight of his
writing. He may write great stories, but when it comes to the closing pages,
there’s no one else to compare. CD Comics output has been nothing but a treat
to read, with Meadowhell being no exception. Another cult gem." Horror
Cult Films UK
"So much work goes into giving a realistic bend to his
comics that it really sets them apart from others which just do not have the
same level of crazy detail... I was really drawn into this world, desperate to
find out just what was going on." Rotting Zombie UK Reviewer gave it 8 out
