REVIEWS

For ALIEN BOUNTY HUNTER

“Intricate world-building meets a charismatic lead character, who we follow into a compelling and shadowy sci-fi world.”

Batman’s Bookcase

“Come for the story, stay for the incredible visuals.”

Multiversity Comics

“Adrian Wassel and David Booher have put together the penultimate action flick in comic book form.”

The Pullbox

“The writing from Wassel and Booher is absolutely breathtaking…Pair that with the stellar art work…and you have an absolute must read comic.”

Comic Hunter

For COLOSSI

“COLOSSI is a delightfully strange book that builds a huge world through the smallest details…COLOSSI #3 is a gorgeously-illustrated installment in a miniseries that blends mystery with sci-fi, horror with comedy, and creates an unusual story perfect for fans of weird series like The Twilight Zone or even campier fare like Are You Afraid of the Dark?…[It] delivers on all of the spooky surprises you would want, managing to deliver surprisingly real bumps in the night in a visual medium.”

Newsarama

“COLOSSI from Ricardo Mo, Alberto Muriel, and Stelladia is where Lost and The Twilight Zone meet.”

Spartantown

For FISSURE

“FISSURE ushers in a new era for Vault Comics with a solid mystery that is driven by characters not solely action. Daniel’s experience is on display as the dialogue is natural, the story involving, and Delpeche’s art is first class. FISSURE as well as Vault are the ones to watch in 2017.”

Spartantown (on FISSURE issue #1)

“The work that Tim Daniel has done here at the beginning of the series is beautiful. It takes no time at all to understand the setting, the characters, and the mood…The artwork from Patricio Delpeche is flawless in this debut issue. With a style that reminds me off Scott Kolins (artist on Flash, the Avengers) this doesn’t have the traditional look and feel of a small Indie comic. This is a work of art that can sit proudly on the shelf next to any other mainstream title and hold its own.”

Comic Crusaders (on FISSURE issue #1)

“I didn’t know what to expect, but I’m impressed, really impressed. FISSURE #1 was a comic that was on my radar but I’m sure it’ll be on too few and they’re missing out on a quality comic. This disaster horror story goes above and beyond in a way to not just entertain, but also reflects on what divides us.”

Graphic Policy

“FISSURE has a terrific pace, working to build the tension with each page turn…FISSURE is a slow burn that pays off in spades with a breathtaking final-page filled with intrigue and terror.  It does the due diligence of establishing the characters and making you care about them before shaking the ground beneath their feet.  You’ll be dying to check out the next issue, if for nothing else than to find out what’s in these holes.”

Horror Talk (on FISSURE issue #1)

For HEATHEN

“As a writer, Natasha Alterici has laid down some pretty impressive work. She’s crafted characters that live up to the hype surrounding Nordic myth, people who have very real thoughts and problems, and the courage to face them head on. Now, lest HEATHEN be pegged as being aimed at any one demographic, rest assured that Alterici has covered all bases, managing to represent all manner of folk in her book. . . . All of the clever writing in the world isn’t going to result in a quality comicbook without the art to go with it. No worries there, because as an artist Natasha Alterici has done an outstanding job . . . While there may not be many big action sequences, what there are have been done very well, with an almost cinematic quality . . . Don’t be a twit and write HEATHEN off as a title aimed exclusively at women. It’s a testament that Natasha Alterici was able to weave a story that can be embraced and enjoyed by anyone”

The Pullbox

“I want epics with female leads, and fortunately HEATHEN fulfills that desire in a big way, while also adding its own unique touch with themes that are as contemporary as they are timeless.”

Women Write About Comics (on HEATHEN volume #1)

 

“Overall, HEATHEN is and has been an excellent series that is highly recommended. The characters that Alterici populates her world with are unique and have heart. The reader will want to enter into the pages and hang out with them. HEATHEN is absolutely one of the best books being made right now. The Verdict: 10/10”

Comicosity (on HEATHEN issue #6)

For MAXWELL’S DEMONS

“MAXWELL’S DEMONS isn’t an easy comic to read emotionally. It’s the kind of comic where you almost need something else to read afterward, to help cool down, but painful stories exist for a reason. MAXWELL’S DEMONS wouldn’t hurt so much if we didn’t care about Max’s journey.”

The Geeked Gods (on MAXWELL’S DEMONS issue #1)

“If you’ve ever wanted to know what a Pixar movie directed by David Fincher would look like, I would suggest you take a look at MAXWELL’S DEMONS.”

Multiversity Comics 

For REACTOR

“…a fantastic comic blending horror, sci-fi, and action genres to deliver a truly unique experience.”

Comic Crusader

“…if you ever find yourself wondering where you can find a comic that feels like a summer blockbuster, with all the excitement and humor and drama that comes with it, then REACTOR is it.”

Multiversity Comics

“This series belongs to that sacred category of pulp fiction that wants nothing more than to excite and entertain…It’s just old fashioned vampire-killing fun, and I’m glad it exists.”

Doom Rocket

For SPIRITUS

“A high-minded look at the intersections of violence, corporate exploitation of the individual, and technology, with imaginative art that conveys a sense of robotic and existential dread.”

Batman’s Bookcase (on SPIRITUS issue #1)

“The early anime robot tech, retro CPU visuals, and bleak military atmosphere all mesh perfectly for a powerhouse debut. SPIRITUS rules.”

Doom Rocket (on SPIRITUS issue #1)

“There’s a rare smoothness to SPIRITUS that sets it apart from other books, and it proves you need far more than concept alone to sell a story.”

Multiversity Comics (on SPIRITUS issue #1)

“Although the wraparound cover of Spiritus depicts a woman running side by side with a humanoid robot, I can’t help but be reminded of that feeling you get when looking at the black and red-figure pottery of the ancient Greeks. That feeling of connection to a different time and place. A connection made possible by a team of craftsmen and women working together to take something of function and use it’s form as a foundation to tell their stories…And like those pots and paintings of ancient days past, this comic book was crafted for more  than art’s sake, it serves a purpose. It carries accurate social commentary with Ted Daniel’s words. It holds all the proper emotion thanks to the art and colors of Michael Kennedy. And the message is clear thanks to Lauren Norby’s lettering and balloon styling.”

All-Comic (on SPIRITUS issue #1)

For ZOJAQAN

“Just wow. The art in ZOJAQAN is so gorgeous and unique, depicting a fantasy realm interwoven with visions of our own world. The writing team of Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing … provide a gorgeous and abstract script that reads like a fevered dream, complete with character development and glimpses of modern tragedies from our own times. This [is] a literary comic with questions about grief and theology, and a total joy for fans of surrealist art.”

Batman’s Bookcase
