    Comic Booked - Emma Kathryn Jan 9, 2013

    I really really don't want to spoil the last few pages of this book. There is the appearance of another Artifacts regular and a gorgeous final page, featuring many of the big hitters from the series. Personally, I would love to see the last page on the Top Cow store as a poster. The art in this issue is that level of geek-tastic. Without spoiling anything, I do have a little complaint in that the last two pages are the kind that leave you desperate for the next issue. I guess that's a good thing, but I think issues like this are the kind that benefit as being chapters in graphic novels rather than single issues. That way you can instantly flick to the next chapter and keep reading. So, while the ending of Artifacts #24 is a fanboy/girl's dream, it's a bit of a tease. Especially when you have another month to wait for the next part. It's going to be great, but it's still nothing short of cruel. Or maybe it's just very, very clever writing. Read Full Review

    Artifacts #24 is simply another great installment in a standout fantasy series. If the art isn't enough of a selling point, it's safe to say that Marz's great script definitely helps the cause. Although Top Cow announced that Stjepan Sejic would be leaving art duties for Artifacts after #26, I have seen the new artist, Marco Turini's work and it is yet another unique and amazing art style for the series.

    Newsarama - Lan Pitts Jan 9, 2013

    Artifacts has been the go-to book for characters outside of Witchblade and Marz has such a solid grasp of concept and familiarity with this world, everything else feels not up to par. While this book has gotten off track recently, this issue takes the series out of neutral and gets it back on the race track. Read Full Review

    Add in the amazing art from Stjepan Sejic. The art is fantastic, Sejic's always is. If you want to see how to shake up a universe and not piss on your fans, Top Cow has pulled it off. Publishers should take note when considering doing the same. Hopefully they can luck out and get a masterful writer like Ron Marz. Read Full Review

    With all that being said, I really love the Artifacts comic line. It's a good break from super heroes and convoluted franchises. Ron Marz and Stjepan Sejic really just want to tell an excellent, well-paced story. And that's what they do. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Joe Sarnicola Jan 10, 2013

    The rest of the book has action, but not in the typical boring sense of good guy, or girl in this case, fights bad guy, good guy wins. Nope, here we see honor, regret, sacrifice, anger. Imaginary characters acting and expressing emotions just like real people. The elements that make a story much more than a story. Read Full Review
