"If the mark of a good story is that the reader doesn't want it to end, you've written another winner. I think you've found yourself an unexplored niche and it should do well for you."
-- Alan Grant (Batman, Judge Dredd, the Demon, and others too numerous to mention)
"Chuck Miller is by far one of the greatest unknown writers in America today. Whether he's weaving intricate tales with characters you're familiar with, or creating new ones, his stories are always fun and draw you in immediately." --Gwen Bishop (Publisher, ARTS in Alabama)
