    As far as the art is concerned, it is some of the best detailed of the series. You really get the sense that the artist truly took his time in crafting a stellar book to look at. The best moment of the book is in the art when Barnubus' true form is unleashed. It is a magnificent looking creature that has full detail and you can still see some of the features that are in Barnabus. The action scenes are staged perfectly and they show just enough to let the readers know that some serious damage is being done in the mansion. Some may have problems with the way some of the key action scenes look as they show close-ups of some of the carnage mixed in with the wide shot, but it served it's purpose and this reviewer thinks it looked magnificent.

    Well worth a look, and based on this issue, Ferreyra continues his rapid ascent up my favourite artist list. Just a stunning piece of work. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Jan 14, 2014

    Barnabus is a flat new protagonist compared to the more interesting Zell from previous issues, the villains have more personality than the hero, the fight scenes lack tension and don't even have enough goofy balls-out awesome moments to justify themselves, and the visual aesthetics and styles clash with the new story concepts and character designs. I can't say I don't recommend the issue if you've been reading the story, because it does offer some measure of closure and completion to the story; it's just a shame that we couldn't have had a stronger finish to this series. Kiss Me, Satan deserved better. Read Full Review

    It'll be interesting to see if Dark Horse launches this as a full blown series. Although this inaugural run felt rushed (and at times uneven) there's no doubt that there's a lot of possibility inherent in this title. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Adam Kelly Jan 15, 2014

    Although I enjoyed this series these last few issues, I still think it had potential to be more. I never really felt that connected or invested in any of the characters-for me, Cassian was the most memorable but we never really knew that much about him. It was also almost anti-climactic when he didn't kill his son because he didn't seem that evil and therefore not much of a threat for Barnabus. That said, for me the highlights of this book have been the gruesome, gory action sequences thanks to the stellar art. If you look at it like a movie that you just go in to see some blood and gore and not worry too much about remembering the characters than you will probably want to check this out. Otherwise, the story may seem a bit predictable and may be disappointing. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Jan 20, 2014

    It wouldve been nice to have an ending with a bit more depth, but thats not to say this story didnt end in a satisfying manner. There was a ton of action, the bad guys were slain, and the good guys seem to have emerged relatively unscathed. The final issue was certainly an epic conclusion and it would be great to see another mini-series from this title. Read Full Review
