    Alex Medelin shows great timing in his panel construction, both in generating horror and setting up the jokes in the script. He's able to switch from killing teens to a sight gag all within the same page. This sharper outing is just what Hoax Hunters needed to make it stand out from other similar comics. Read Full Review

    In the woods, the other team realizes their mistake, as darkness descends upon them. Noises and fleeting images have them spooked, and rightly so. Ken goes after them and gets tripped by an eerie hand as he approaches, sending him to the ground. Creatures hold him down and keep him quiet, as the mysterious figure from before rips half the head off one of the other team. As the remaining two fear for their life, they are attacked by the smaller creatures. Is this the end of the Hoax Hunter Hunters? I loved this issue, as it had something different in the introduction of the other team. Read Full Review

    Hoax Hunters is a comic that is on the verge of greatness. It has a lot of potential, and a very talented creative team, so as this series heads into its second arc it will be interesting to see if it garners more attention from the press and readers alike. I'd recommend this series to fans of what Image has been up to this past year, Hoax Hunters is a great series that brings creativity and originality to the table as much as solid story-telling and crazy adventures. That being said this series isn't yet on par with other greatImage debuts from last year like Fatale, Manhattan Projects, Saga and Revival. Give this series a chance, there is a good chance that it will put a smile on your face, it offers a great alternative to the often predictable and familiar stories of other current series.

    Although I had a hard time following the plot and understanding what was motivating the characters by reading one isolated issue, the characters did demonstrate distinct personalities, which only added to the entertainment value of this book. And I loved the way the colors gave this book a distinct personality of its own. Hoax Hunters is a riot. Read it! Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jan 16, 2013

    This issue does struggle a bit in the art department. Axel Medellin opens really strong, but once the scene shifts to the convention, things fall apart slightly. It's not bad, but the pages feel a bit empty. The backgrounds drop out too often. Things don't get much better in an awkwardly staged dinner scene. However, once those murderous gnomes show up, the book looks great. The monsters look fantastic and the gore is great. The more monsters, the better. Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Jan 18, 2013

    This was a fairly interesting book and I'm probably going to be picking up the volume 1 trade to see how it started out. It's probably not for everyone, but if you want something supernatural that isn't superhero this may be a great spot to start, and like I said issue 6 was the start of a new story so it was fairly easy to follow without any prior knowledge.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jan 16, 2013

    In general, this is a pretty good spot for new readers to jump on to the book. I do think that it should have mentioned somewhere in the story that they do in fact cover up what they investigate in case the readers skip the recap at the beginning. If you were put off by the last story arc this one is off to a better start, but we’ll have to see where it goes from here for sure. Read Full Review
