“Vivid and beautifully colored, cartoony in a classical sense, and it adds up to being one
of the most visually arresting comics of the year.” —Comic Book Resources
“High praise is due to this team for writing a heroine worthy of admiration by all ages,
and giving her glorious art to match.” —Multiversity Comics
“An interesting setting and a witty, self-aware, badass female lead character is going to
reel me in. The Trumpian main character will justifiably push some away, but Jordan
and Ryan have built the foundation for a solid, solid series in The Family Trade.”
—Court of Nerds
“The Family Trade is a solid start with a foundation to build on: a likable protagonist, an
interesting world, and an inner conflict to grow.” —Black Nerd Problems
