    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker May 1, 2012

    While it's a bit dry at times, that's pretty much what you'd have to expect from a tale set in the stuffy old London of this era. It helps set the mood and tone required for this story - it wouldn't be quite right if it wasn't so austere. However, it likely won't remain so for very long, once the class warfare kicks into gear and we start to get more of the history of the societal structure. The New Deadwardians is certainly worthy of your attention, should you choose to investigate further. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - George Chimples May 1, 2012

    It's hard to talk about something like The New Deadwardians without addressing the overabundance of zombie/vampire fiction on the market at the moment. Needless to say, The New Deadwardians is more than another Pride & Prejudice & Zombies-type cash-in. Abnett has really thought out his world, and is inviting his readers into something fresh. Coupled with the art of Culbart and Mulvihill, The New Deadwardians #2 follows through on the promising first issue, earning four out of five stars. If you're looking for some zombie/vampire fiction but have trouble separating the wheat from the chaff, you could do worse than check out The New Deadwardians. Read Full Review
