    Planet of Daemons is an interesting step into creator owned work and I look forward to reading the remaining issues. The story may very well be a departure for some who fancy straight up superhero books but the histories embedded into the work, through the Salem witch trials or the study of Jewish Kabbalah provide such an interesting and rich medium for storytelling. Solid opener from a solid team! Read Full Review

    This is a great premiere issue to start the series. Writer Kevin Gunstone has a sophisticated way about writing the script, jumping back and forth from time periods to create a cinematic effect for readers to enjoy. For anyone who likes a story that'll make you think, this issue is a must-read. Read Full Review

    Overall this is a really interesting concept, however Paul's art and Kevin's non progressive info dumps halts the enjoyment of this issue. Hopefully this changes with the next issue. Read Full Review

    While zombies and superheroes continue to drive the comic book market, it's good to see a resurgence in other genres of the medium. Planet of Daemons looks like it's the real deal, so let's hold thumbs the forthcoming issues hold and build on the standard set by "The Eye of Lucifer". Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Dec 27, 2016

    Planet of the Daemons blends some interesting elements, but ultimately is less than the sum of its parts.  We're plopped into the story with little background and struggle to put together the pieces without enough information.  I'm not saying we need to know everything about the story and the characters within the first issue.  It's just that there's not enough here to make me want to come back for more.  There's no hook or cliffhanger.  Instead, the issue just kind of ends with Amos entering a building and seeing something and we have no real context for the importance of either.
