    Anticipation.  Dread.  Fear of the Unknown.  This is really what puts the FUN into horror comics. Read Full Review

    But minor quibbles aside, I'm really glad IDW is releasing the series to a wider audience, especially since I missed it the first time. With horror comics making a fantastic surge of late, The Eighth Seal still manages to stand out. Read Full Review

    The Eighth Seal #2 is a strong stride in the right direction as the plot begins to thicken around this conspiracy. Where this is going is anyone's guess but for now it's a smart ride worth taking. Read Full Review

    The overall pacing has the feel of a tense political thriller, packed with various secret alliances and subplots. Given the nature of the book, however, I think it will become more horror based as the story continues. No bad thing, especially given what we've seen from the story so far. Highly recommended for fans of horror, political drama, and grotesque beasties that will make your skin crawl. Read Full Review
