The finale of Clive Barker's original series is upon us! All the pain and suffering Tristan and Elspeth have gone through has led them to Providence, where they are reunited with Julian...but that's not the only family reunion taking place, as Wick finally faces his jailers. Clive Barker, Mark Miller, and Haemi Jang bring this epic to a shocking conclusion!

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Aug 13, 2014

    The comic ends with Tristan and Elspeth and I won't tell you exactly how their story ends, but instead what I want to comment on is how Tristan looks at the end. His hair is different, his face is almost ghostly, the silhouette picture could mirror another character, and the last pictures seen of him show these rainbow colors. All this wrapped up only makes me think of God. Now I am not saying that Tristan is God, but I think a lot is being said with these final pages. You can judge it for yourself, because it can be taken some different ways or not even noticed. It does however comment on the fact of how connected everything was in this story. So again, just a great way to end this comic through and through. It still amazes me how quick this series went but the impact it had. Next Testament will always tell that great story I can keep coming back to. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Aug 13, 2014

    For me, the Next Testament series ranks up there with the best of Clive Barker's works, such as “Hellraiser” and “Cabal.” This is a masterpiece that will gain prominent significancewith comic book and horror fans as years go by.I personally cannot wait for BOOM! to put all these 12 issue into one trade.

    Big Comic Page - Garry Mac Aug 13, 2014

    Don't read issue 12 without reading the others, but do seek out the whole series. This feels like Clive Barker by way of 90's Vertigo, and that's a fantastic thing. Can't wait for the collected edition. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Aug 13, 2014

    This was a series that had the biggest scope of any book on the stands this year. It had strong moments, intense reflective scenes too, but ultimately fizzled out in the end. It shouldn't be missed though, because it challenges what we think of our own reality. Read Full Review
