    The overall look of the book is a sure-fire winner. The book itself is highly pleasing to the eyes. The greens, the red, the yellows, and blacks make this book unique in of itself. It wouldve been perfect if DDLM was released in November of last year, but hey you cant have it all, right? Next time youre in the comic shop, give this book a read and youll be delighted you did so.

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Feb 7, 2013

    All told, this is a remarkably cohesive issue that still manages to encompass a lot of variety. Rossmo's art is at its kinetic and exuberant best, with Csuka's pages providing a lot of energy and interest in their own right, and all three writers bring something unique to the table. And happily, there are two more issues left in this anthology series " with stories from such Multiversity favorites as Kurtis Wiebe and Ed Brisson, no less " so those of us in the land of the living have plenty to look forward to in “Dia De Los Muertos”.

    Highly recommended, "'Dia de los Muertos" #1 is a terrific compilation of great storytelling and engaging artwork. The decorative spirit of Day of the Dead is celebrated in these pages. Read Full Review

    Comics Crux - Jessica Tarnate Jun 2, 2012

    Dia de Los Muertos #1 is the first of three. If youre a fan of the holiday, of indie horror comics, or of Dirk Mannings or Riley Rossmos work, I highly recommend this first issue. Read Full Review

    Stash My Comics - Leo Johnson Feb 7, 2013

    If you're a new reader and interested in a truly unique first comic, look no further. I can guarantee almost absolutely that there is nothing anywhere close to this on the stands right now. Rossmo has brought forth something amazing, which is to be expected. Read Full Review

    IGN - CallumFord Feb 8, 2013

    The price is a little higher than usual but the extra pages are worthwhile and a physical copy comes on good thick paper, making your purchase feel substantial, and giving the book the feeling of grandeur it deserves. Read Full Review

    I've heard other internet commentators appreciate different aspects of this issue, but for me the star was the finale which features a touching story and stunning art. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Schenker Feb 7, 2013

    It's been a day since I read this issue, and I'm still thinking about the comic. Solid work that I wish we would see more of. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Liam Jose Feb 5, 2013

    The last piece, "Te Vas Angel Mio", came really close to being something special, as a musician is perhaps visited by the spirit of his deceased lover for one night, but faltered largely due to the irritating decision to have the spirit speak only in hackneyed maxims. Through all this, though, Rossmo's art shines through and makes this almost worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - PNeafsey Feb 6, 2013

    As a whole Dia De Los Muertos #1 offers some nice ideas, and the short-story format has translated surprisingly well to the comic format, but beyond the artwork left more to be desired. Dia De Los Muertos is a three-issue series, so as the series continues things could change as a whole. Read Full Review
