    Ever wonder what a good story filled with supernatural creatures would be like? In these days of sparkly vampires and teen drama werewolves, they can be hard to come by. The nice thing about Epoch is that it doesn't just stick to vampires and werewolves either. There's a multitude of different creatures spanning from angels to what appears to be Medusa. The story seems to revolve more closely around angels and demons though. Either way, I'm pretty happy from just the first issue. Read Full Review

    If you enjoy cop dramas, and love stories with a supernatural twist to them, then you should definitely pick this book up. While not necessarily the most original idea, I can see this possibly becoming as big of a book for Top Cow as Witchblade and the Darkness. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Nicole D'Andria Aug 28, 2011

    This comic is a good read. But it barely stands out amongst the numerous other comics produced from Top Cow and Image, especially art-wise. The story does have an air of mystery to it that will make me come back and read more just to see what happens, which I would call the greatest success the first issue of any series can accomplish. It's fun, but a clich, and needs to have a great second issue to make up for it. Read Full Review

    This debut issue to the mini-series was a decent opener, though it is hard to feel infused by another conflict between good and evil. However, if the art stays of a high quality and the action is entertaining, epoch should turn out to be an enjoyable read. Read Full Review
