    Big Comic Page - Jules Boyle Mar 12, 2014

    My only criticism is that, after ending on such a cliffhanger, I'm desperate to see what happens next, but by the sounds of it, we could be in for a wait. Hopefully it won't be too long, as this is another potential classic in the making. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Mar 12, 2014

    Though the subject matter is dark, the story is good and well worth the read. I don't know if I ever will get over the ending here, but it is a nice finishing touch to a well written and well-presented story. Hope there will be some more in the future. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Bree Ogden Mar 14, 2014

    I enjoyed getting acquainted with Tarquin and Moria, consuming the stunning art, and obsessing over the hauntingly beautiful bloodshed. Though the plot was not completely stand-alone, which is uncharacteristic of a one-shot comic, I do think (and hope) that we will see these characters in a series of one-shots. Or however its done, I believe we will see more of this nicely established world and its brilliant characters. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Craig Schroeder Mar 5, 2014

    Nosferatu Wars broods and smolders for ninety-percent of the book. Let me qualify, its the best kind of brooding and smoldering. Niles is working towards a crescendo that is as bonkers as it is beautiful and profound. Those only mildly interested in the horror genre may get lost in the moodiness of it all, but if you feel like you are working your way through the guts of the book, I recommend staying with it until the end. The pay-off is spectacular. Those already accustomed to Niles writing style will relish in the mood he creates and wait for the moment when your mouth falls open. Nosferatu Wars is a strange title, a stranger story and an all-around delight. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Marykate Jasper Mar 17, 2014

    Still, this is a beautiful short story. The mystery doesn't ruin the experience; it simply makes this a glimpse into Tarquin and Moria's world rather than a history of it. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Mar 13, 2014

    Dark Horse has a long history of greathorror comics and this is one is no exception. Sadly, this is only a one-shot. Keep this fingers crossed that it could become a monthly title… Read Full Review
