    Even with the somewhat unclear story at points, there is not a bad word I can say at all for the outstanding visuals. Simon Bisley sucks you right into this tale from the first page! His depictions of the battle in Heaven and how he chose to distinguish the Angels from the Fallen are phenomenal. The artwork is very clean and highly detailed and carries a sense of grit and darkness that fit the atmosphere the story creates very well. I'm definitely looking forward to progressing issues of this story to see what plays out and " if I'm honest " just to get another glimpse at these outstanding visuals! Read Full Review

    13 Coins #1 is a good start to the series as its entertaining premise is laid out along with a satisfying introduction to John Pozner's life. And the action in the second half of the issue is intense and gives a solid idea about how far the competing organizations will go to complete their missions while also creating an intriguing story. However, these different story threads felt disjointed because no answer was given about how they tie together and so I'm looking forward to see how that unfolds. Read Full Review

    This is definitely not a series for kids, but for those looking for a serious and gripping story of good vs. evil - and lots of terrific artwork - this is the book for you! Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Oct 21, 2014

    13 Coins gets off to a promising start, as though it felt pretty average on the whole, the opening sequence left me curious as to where this series will go. It's for this reason that I recommend this issue, as it's well worth trying if only for one issue. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Sean Tonelli Oct 24, 2014

    13 Coins #1 isn't going to break the mold, but it is a fun read. The art is definitely the selling point of the book and gives the book its worth. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - John F. Trent Oct 22, 2014

    13 Coins starts off very rough with a choppy narrative and a weak main protagonist that offers no way to connect with the reader. The artwork is sufficiently violent and full of gore, a credit to Bisley and Brown. The second half of the book does a complete 180, driving the meta-story and introducing some strong, more relatable characters. Read Full Review

    Nothing extraordinary about this series so far. It does have very nice art but the story just doesn't match up with the top-notch graphics.
