    ComicBuzz - Michael Aug 11, 2014

    This comic has been dark from the start but is now something more. Abe and Grace's struggle for survival and their moments of self discovery are both wonderful and simultaneously terrifying, as they reveal more about what it means to be human than most of us could ever be fully comfortable with.

    Multiversity Comics - Mark Tweedale Jul 9, 2014

    Pick up this issue. If you're new to the series, pick up 12 and 13 while you're at it, otherwise this could be tricky to understand. For long term readers, this issue is going to blow you away. This issue does what comics do best. It tells the story in the most visually engaging way possible. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - stephengervais Jul 10, 2014

    The writers have put together a story filled with such a tense ambience you don’t fully realise it until you exhale after reading it. At that moment you come to recognize just how enthralled you were in the tale of these characters as they make their way through this forlorn adventure. New readers can definitely pick up this issue and grasp the tone and direction of the story but I highly recommend starting at issue 12 to fully appreciate the setting and feel being created here.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jul 9, 2014

    Abe Sapien #14 is an easy comic book to review because it's that rare franchise which carries instant quality. Born from the shadow of B.P.R.D. and forged under its own trials this is certainly a property that deserves a spot on your pull-list. In other words this easily comes recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jul 9, 2014

    I read a ton of Dark Horse titles each month and really each week, but for my money Abe Sapien really is one of the best they publish. It rises above their licensed material which I rate very high (especially compared to other publishers), it rises above their foray into the superhero genre (for the most part) and it sits at the top of the Mignolaverse in my opinion. The last issue may have been labeled as a "starting point", but trust me" you can start this journey any time and it's always going to be one worth taking. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Jul 10, 2014

    Overall, this was just another terrific installment by an astonishingly consistent and always-evolving creative team. Fans of the Mignolaverse in general should be really excited for the current state of Abe Sapien given the greater glimpses of this characters past we have recently been treated to. If you follow B.P.R.D. and other related series, but for some reason just havent gotten around to checking this one out yet, now is a perfect time to get involved. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Jul 10, 2014

    If you enjoy a bleak journey through the blasted wasteland, I cant think of a better book to frequent your pull-list. And even if you can, youd be a fool to miss out on Abe Sapian: Fine comics indeed. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley Jul 17, 2014

    While Abe Sapien continues to be an interesting comic about one of my favorite B.P.R.D. characters, the story seems to be spinning its wheels right now. The art, the mystery laced into the plot, the world building (or rebuilding, if you will) along with the character make this enjoyable to read, but there's very little sense of propulsion driven by the plot and characters and no sense of change. There is always the possibility that the changes that should have occurred in this issue will play out in the next, which is always the problem with reviewing single issues, but I can only judge this comic based on its own merit and how it compares to the issues that came before it, and while I enjoyed it, I also feel like it could have been stronger. Mildly recommended. Read Full Review
