“Vault’s series spends much more time with the native culture, showing readers a side of the people often dismissed by the “savage” label.”
“…the mixture of traditional Gothic Horror and Indian mythology works effectively in taking us out of our comfort zone and into a new and intriguing world where nothing is certain and anything can, and probably will, happen..”
“Equal parts historical fiction, monster thriller, heart-rending romance. It’s These Savage Shores, the critically-acclaimed new series from Vault Comics that promises to be one of the finer comics experiences you’ll have this year — or, perhaps, any year.”
"[Y]ou’ll understand why 'These Savage Shores' borders on a revelation. Writer Ram V, cartoonist, Sumit Kumar, colorist, Vittorio Astone and letterer, Aditya Bidikar combine their talents to interrogate ideas both ticklish and troubling."
"Each issue of These Savage Shores has been the best chapter in the story so far, and #3 is no exception. A chapter packed with set pieces and hard-earned big moments, this is a comic that makes me feel unbelievably lucky we have this book. 9.5/10."
