    A smarter than average horror read with some of the most interesting characters to show up in a horror comic in some time, Exsanguine is a solid read for fans of the vampire, serial killer, or FBI supernatural crime thriller types of stories. Definitely worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Oct 17, 2012

    I scored Ex Sanguine high due to the twists. The book is a mystery comic, horror comic, and adventure comic wrapped all in one. If only I could explain more of the story, you would understand my appreciation for this book that defies all the societal clichs about the vampire. Finally, a good Halloween read in the month of October. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - Garry Robertson Nov 18, 2012

    I really enjoyed this story, as it gets turned on its head with the introduction of Ashley and the realization of her secret. Also, the way that Saul is an unwilling vampire desperate to live a normal life. The past of Quinn that was hinted at is also cool. Seeley's artwork is good, especially in the close-up frames, well drawn and clear as it gets the twists and turns of the story across without a problem. 8/10 for issue #1. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Oct 18, 2012

    While it's definitely possible to look ahead in this series and guess as to what is going to come of the interaction between Saul and the murderer, the big twist in this issue demonstrates that Seeley and Emmons have some serious tricks up their sleeves. And so, while it may feel a little conventional at times, there may yet be an unusual horror story awaiting us all within the pages of “Ex Sanguine”. In the mean time, this issue is good (if occasionally simplistic) fun, and should appeal to the horror aficionados among us. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Oct 19, 2012

    Josh Scott Emmons and Tim Seeley present a mash-up of the serial killer and vampire stories we know in ExSanguine and while Seeley's art shines, the script leaves something to be desired. The characters are hollow, for now, and they are set on an unclear path. That said, the book has the potential to go in a lot of different directions, anywhere from Zodiac-style drama to Kill Your Boyfriend levels of absurdity and that might be enough of a hook for some.
