    Rhymes With Geek - Wesley Messer Apr 3, 2015

    The relaunch of Hoax Hunters #1 for Heavy Metal is a good beginning for what should be a good story. Now in my case and in many other cases, it'll be either catch up or the first time for many readers. It's a solid jumping on point which ultimately makes me happy. I like when a story operates under the rule that every issue could be their first and Moreci and Seeley do well with this. Maybe a handy recap at the beginning could have been useful but as I said, it is easy enough to make your way through. I'm in for the rest of the adventure either way. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Aj Adejare Apr 8, 2015

    Hoax Hunters is off to a decent start. It's clear the authors are going for story over characters for their outing to bring in readers. That is not a bad thing to do as it will hook the reader and get them to start considering the comic for its story first. The characters may be standard but the story, at least for this arc, is looking to be a bit deeper. If they can push through this story and build up the characters on the way, readers may see more meaning out of this series. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield Apr 3, 2015

    Hoax Hunters #1 is loaded with potential and a marvel to look at. Is it the best first issue in the world? No, but it's not really a true first issue; it's the first issue of volume two and part of the fun is in letting the vagaries trigger your imagination. While your brain may be playing catch-up trying to fill in the missing back pieces to the characters' make-up, it'll be soothed by the sharp one-liners and original supernatural frenzy Moreci, Seeley, Dibari and Spicer joyfully throw at you.

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Mar 25, 2015

    While the name and the team are back, Hoax Hunters hasn't quite recaptured the magic that it displayed in its Image Comics days. It's still very early and writers Michael Moreci and Steve Seeley had taken a hiatus from the comic to write other projects, so maybe they just have to find their groove with these characters again, much like the characters themselves. It's clear that Heavy Metal is backing them 100%, as Hoax Hunters is the premiere title in its new line of books. Hopefully things will tighten up a bit as we get some more answers to the mysteries surrounding the characters and what's going on with Jack. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Apr 6, 2015

    With a television deal already announced and a full run under their belts, it's clear that this team knows what they want to do and where they want to go with the story. As a 5-issue limited series, it will also keep the tale moving at a brisk pace. The opening issue has some problems and suffers from the expectations that come from the debut of a publishing line, but nothing that isn't entertaining enough to check back in with soon.
