    I haven't seen this book anywhere aside from being mentioned by Roxane Gay herself on Twitter which is just appalling to me. Overall the concept is really cool and refreshing and a little edgy - three generations of black women who are professional thieves taking on a heist to steal a shit ton of money from a white-collar crime boss. I really enjoyed the characterization here. They each had their own moral code and limitations which I felt made this bizarre set up very human.

All of the women felt unique which I think is sometimes hard to do in comics when you're trying to move a fast-paced complex plot along. However, I think that element was able to be strong because the plot really wasn't. It felt like a preview to a bigger story. I enjoyed it, and I haven't read anything like it content-wise - but it wasn't particularly memorable. Perhaps if there's another installment, almost setting up a series, this would fare better for me.

    While it was refreshing to have a comic featuring smart and capable (and queer) Black women, the story itself felt very generic, while the art was uneven in quality and uninspired in terms of layout and narrative structure. The ending also felt rushed and thus perfunctory. Disappointing.

    I quite liked it but it made me anxious the whole way through that bad things would happen. The art is great but the timeline jumps are sometimes confusing.

    FUCK NO. Book has inflated idea of its taste level.

    I love graphic novels, and this one didn't dissapoint. It felt like an old school comic, but with well-rounded women of color.
