Praise for Nottingham Vol. 1 GN: Death and Taxes

One of Comicon.com's BEST COMICS ARTISTS OF 2021
One of Comicon.com's BEST WRITERS OF 2021

“Nottingham challenges idol worship and the long held practice of canonizing atrocious human beings in stories and song. It’s well written, beautifully drawn, and engages the reader from the very first sequence. Well worth the price of admission.”
— Brendan M. Allen

"David Hazan’s medieval noir reinterpretation of Robin Hood has proved to be one of the most devilishly exciting takes on the character in ages. [...] The comic industry thrives on fresh blood and new talent. Hazan is the kind of new talent who’s ready to spill some blood."
— Tito James

"Volk’s highly stylized, slightly caricatured style works ridiculously well for the period horror/noir. [...] Beautifully demented, in all the right ways."
— Brendan M. Allen

"A cloak and dagger tale unlike anything I can recall reading. [...] It’s Robin Hood meets Knives Out."
— Quentin Rushing

"Nottingham is the best release to come out of Mad Cave Studios this year. It's a strong storyline with a voracious appetite for controlled anarchy and mayhem. David Hazan's scripting feels well thought out and purposeful while the art is the stuff nightmares are made of."
— Soda And Telepaths

"Hazan really puts out one hell of a page-turner [...] You will not walk out of this comic the same as you walk in, and that’s what a good comic does, after all."
— Jimmy Hayes

"The kids gloves were definitely removed in this version of the classic tale. [...] It is a fresh approach and works extremely well."
— Geek Vibes Nation

"This version of the Hood legend adds complexity and nuance in showing everyone has motives for what they do but not all motives are noble."
— Gabriel Hernandez

"This is more like a collaboration between the Brothers Grimm, Arthur Conan Doyle and Quentin Tarantino Robin Hood, with violence, political intrigue, violence, double and triple talk, and violence"
