What people said about this issue:

" Murky Depths has a look and feel that finally brings short fiction into the twenty-first century [and] is what the future of print media will look like." [Full comments]  - Bil Ward (
" Just got my contributor copies of Murky Depths issue #5, which features my story "Misty Rain", complete with a seriously creepy illustration by Wayne Blackhurst. I have to admit I am pretty blown away." [Full comments]  - Michael J. DeLuca (The Mossy Skull blog)
" The guys are doing great work producing something that excites, with talent left right and centre. Even if you're like me and find comic strip off-putting, fear not as there's plenty more to it than that." [Full comments]  - Wayne Blachurst (Two Sided To A Sheet Of Paper blog)
