    Comic Book Bin - Troy-Jeffrey Allen Nov 21, 2012

    Written by David Walker (Darius Logan: Super Justice Force) with artist Robert Love (Alpha Girl), Number 13 is a brew of intriguingly oddball ideas. Walker and Love seem to be aiming for a sci-fi yarn that effectively tugs on the readers curiosities. For that exact reason, issue #0 doesnt completely satisfy but does make you demand to see what additional horrors these characters are on collision a course with. That, along with Walkers ambitious world-building and Loves amusingly bizarre-o character designs, gives Number 13 numerous possibilities. Read Full Review

    Comics Crux - Nick Verissimo Nov 21, 2012

    Issue 0 of Number 13 is a near perfect entry to this mini-series.  It hits all the right notes on creating a world new, but I definitely would have liked a little bit more mystery to who Number 13 is.  This doesnt feel like anything terribly new, but it should find a home with those who enjoy character development first and a fleshed out world second.  This should turn into a worthwhile read, even for those tired of that whole wasteland, thing.

    This story first ran in Dark Horse Presents, and a miniseries is to follow. It's freaky enough to warrant further investigation. Just... come on, writers. You're supposed to know how to conjugate the verb 'suppose.' Read Full Review

    Den Of Geek! - Robert Bernstein Nov 23, 2012

    Number 13 has attracted my interest. I'm not a follower of many things Dark Horse, but this comic book appears to be a dark view of an apocalyptic and mutant world. We have already seen some creative mutants in this prequel issue and it has been a good introduction to the series for those who were not introduced to Number 13 in Dark Horse Presents. Number 13 #0, while a mouthful to say, is a good introduction to the series and we will be following the next issue to see if it is something we should be reading. Read Full Review

    If you’ve already this story in DHP then yeah you might want to skip this issue. If you’d like a complete reading experience for the story and a refresher before the first issue hits then this is a great book to grab. This story had completely slipped underneath my radar and so the zero issue did a great job of introducing me to the world and making me aware of the series to follow, which I am now looking forward to.
