“Outlaw: Relentless is about going home as an adult – wherever you think of as home. It’s about rediscovering the things you loved, the things you told yourself you did, and the things that made you a worse person. And maybe a few of the things that made you a better one.”

-Tristan Palmgren

“I love Domino’s voice. From the start, I knew this story had to be told in the first person. She’s sharp, she’s funny, and she’s punchy. I loved spending time with her, and just letting her talk. The big draw of a prose novel about Domino is getting a chance to spend more time with that voice than comics could allow.”
Track of Words, Interview with Tristan Palmgren, author of Domino: Strays


“I started reading Gail Simone & David Baldeón’s 2018 Domino – and its follow-up, 2019’s Domino: Hotshots – and fell in love with Domino’s voice.”
Xavier Files, Interview with Tristan Palmgren, author of Domino: Strays

“The Crucible is beyond mortal reckoning, and an invitation to be inventive. I loved stuffing whatever new details I could into whatever places would hold them.”

“Solid characterization made the book enjoyable to read. Fans of solid super-hero action will find this story interesting.”

– Martin’s View

“I didn’t expect it to end up being an intense action story full of desperate fights, extreme survival, and a ton of character drama that would not only lead to me finishing the book in a single day, but also with Outlaw ending up on my list of favourite characters.”

– Trans-Scribe

“Outlaw: Relentless is a surprisingly emotional story about changing identities, healing from trauma, and what makes a life worth living.”

– But Why Tho

“Tristan Palmgren is fantastic. Their characterization is amazing! If you don’t end up loving Outlaw by the first few pages, I don’t know what is wrong with you!”

– What You Tolkien About

“Wow, I liked this book… I think you will like Palmgren’s handling of this Marvel heroine.”
SF Revu

Domino: Strays provides a fun read for those who are new to the character, while providing a lot of unobtrusive shout-outs for long-time fans. Domino: Strays effectively deploys a casual, mouthy style that suits who the character has become in the comics, while not impeding the emotional impact of Domino’s history.”
Strange Assembly

“This is a really great book that gives so much more backstory to a lesser-known Marvel character than could have been achieved in a graphic novel. A very strong female cast of role models. ”
Smash Bomb

“A fast-paced book full of action.”
– Astral Books

“A great book about a character that needs more love”
Lattes, Lipstick & Literature

“I loved this book and its entangled plots… If Palmgren writes more Domino, I’m going to be on it in a heartbeat.”
Ink and Plasma

“This book is bangin’! If you miss Domino from our run, she’s back, with a great espionage/thriller take. Tristan Palmgren nailed it!”
Gail Simone, author of Domino Vol 1 and Hotshots

“An action-packed blast of balletic violence and snappy dialogue with an unexpectedly thoughtful, psychological core… All told it’s tremendously entertaining and compulsively readable, with a wonderfully strong voice and a fresh identity all of its own.”
Track of Words

“Being able to explore the grey areas of mutant life is what makes Domino a joy and Domino: Strays by Tristan Palmgren acts like a primer for the character.”
SF Book

“Domino: Strays is absolutely worth the read, whether you’re a new fan, or have been a fan for years… The story that unfolds here is profound, full of action, sass, and best friends. Really, what more could you possibly ask for?”
Word of the Nerd

“Domino shines in this story. 4/5 stars”

“It’s perfect, and really did read like a longer running Domino series. I would love more of this.”
Quirky Cat’s Fat Stacks

Domino: Strays is a perfect example of how these characters and their stories not only work in this format [prose novels], but excel at it.”

“A fantastic inside look at the Hotshots… A great book looking at one of Marvel’s more interesting characters and it’s really enjoyable.”
Big Geordie Geek

“Domino is not Captain America, she is not here to be a paragon of selflessness and virtue, she is a mercenary with a traumatized past. In embracing that reality, Palmgren is able to really dig into the question of what it means to be a hero – not just making physical sacrifices, but showing Domino willing to sacrifice how she appears in the eyes of others, if that’s what it takes to finish the job.”
Fistful of Meeples

“A book for every mutant to adore!!”
According to Daisy

“I absolutely loved this book, and I can’t recommend Domino: Strays enough”
But Why Tho

“Awesome new fiction coming this October starring Domino and Heimdall!” Marvel and Aconyte Books Reveal First ’Heroines’ and ’Legends of Asgard’ Prose Novels
