“Victor Carungi has exploded onto the comic scene with Pencilneck and made waves his peers can only dream of.  Over the next eighteen months he is the man to watch as he rewrites the rules and brings a genuinely new voice to the scene.  Highly Recommended.”

– Mark Millar – creator of Kickass, Wanted, Nemesis, and Secret Service


“In the sea of small press and independent comics it’s tough to sift through the sand to find the diamonds.  Victor Carungi, and the creators of Pencilneck have created that diamond… Grade A”



“4.5 out of 5 – The horror in this book is beyond great…  The pacing was great, the mixing of genres was fantastic, but it all got sealed with the ending being so bad ass.  The only thing I have left to say on this is IT IS A MUST READ.”

– Dan Royer (on Careful…) –


“Carungi looks like a talent to watch, having shepherded a vision onto the page over the course of a number of years.”

– Matthew Brady (on Pencilneck) – Warren-Peace Blogspot


“To summarize in one word: Wow.  4 out of 5 stars”

“Trying to figure out the character arc of hostage-turned-avenger Kincaid will keep you guessing.”

– Mark London Williams (on Pencilneck) – Nexus Graphica (


“A fast-paced, well-written first issue that had me hooked by the time I was on page 3.”

– Dan Royer (on Benevolence) –


“With a sharp script that finds the right balance between slasher-pic thrills and character-driven crisis, this miniseries is definitely worth a look.”

– Carl Doherty (on Lost in the Woods) –


“…trust me when I say that you want to get the trade of Careful…, turn off all but a reading light, and enjoy a good creep out.”
