"Cinematic visuals, taut storytelling, and plenty of snappy charm. 9.5 out of 10!" - Comical Opinions

"An empowering story that has laid the foundations for an explosive arc, a fierce femme fatale story that is full of fierce vengance and explosive payback, this arc is definitely going to be one not to be missed." - Get Your Comic On

"Pulp noir shenanigans at its finest, with a healthy dose of grindhouse mixed in for good measure. Charles Ardai’s story is brimming with beautiful (and naked) women, gunfights, catfights, explosions, clever twists, and a new status quo for our titular (ahem) hero. If you like comics for sheer spectacle, this one’s got it all." - Comical Opinions 

"Charles Ardai completes the second volume of Gun Honey with his usual flair of action and sexiness...a fun read from the get go, with its mix of action, sexiness, curves and bullets." - Comic Crusaders

"...Another smartly crafted action thriller from Charles Ardai and Ang Hor Kheng." Slings & Arrows
