SERIES PREMIERE! Top Cow combines three of its most provocative titles (THINK TANK, THE TITHE, POSTAL) in an unflinching fable of revenge and consequence. FBI Agent James Miller (THE TITHE) follows a sociopath into the off-the-grid town of Eden, Wyoming on a personal mission of vengeance. The price of this vigilante justice will be paid in blood, and both Eden and James Miller will never be the same.

    And now that the characters and the basic conflicts have been established, I can't wait to see what happens next to everyone. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Sep 1, 2016

    This book is a crime noir type of book that I didn't think I was going to like. The tropes in play are reminiscent of other stories from across all four corners of the media market. So it is to the credit to all involved, that I actually found myself rooting for Samantha and James; that I was wary of the plan and even worried by the cliff hanger ending. Good work in converting a non believer. Read Full Review

    Overall this is a bang-up first issue that lays the groundwork for several storylines, and puts you on edge from the moment James takes his first steps across the towns border. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed Eden's Fall. For a first issue it establishes all it needs to establish while presenting an interesting setting and all while not demanding the reader know much about crossover titles to “get” the picture. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Ryan C. (trashfilmguru) Sep 5, 2016

    The "Hawkins-verse" has been one of the best-kept secrets in four-color funnybooks for a long time (even if we didn't know it was an interconnected "universe" until a few months ago), and if Eden's Fall maintains the standard of quality on display here throughout its brief run, odds are good that it'll steer more people in the direction of Postal, at the very least (which is really hitting a nice creative stride right now) and perhaps even convince the powers-that-be that the other books deserve another arc or two, as well. That'd be a darn good thing on the whole for fans of intelligent, topical books that are relevant to " and resonant with " the world we actually live in. Read Full Review

    Lizard Lounge - Neil Bason Sep 2, 2016

    Eden's Fall #1 offers little in the way of surprises, but, it more than makes up for it with solid writing, interesting characters and a permanent undertone of menace. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - James Johnston Sep 1, 2016

    Overall, I'd suggest giving any of the books that relate to "Eden's Fall" a try before diving into this comic. It's a good comic with a great premise, but it's lacking the edge that makes me really ant to suggest it to people. That edge might be in "Think Tank", "Postal", and or "The Tithe" but I didn't really see it in "Eden's Fall" #1. Still, it's an interesting idea for three comics that are relatively realistic to have a big crossover like this, and it's the kind of thing I'd like to see more of in indie comics. As a first impression however, "Eden's Fall" left me wanting just a little bit more. That little bit just happens to possibly live in three other comics. Sorry that I don't have any final answer here, since I haven't read the other comics but I hope you enjoyed Schrodinger's review. Read Full Review

    No previous knowledge of the other series' is needed, as the first issue spends some time familiarizing readers with the players involved. Check out our full review here. Read Full Review

    The potential of Eden is vast in how stories could weave around and through the main story-arcs of "Postal". Great introduction to some characters in this universe!
