    Rachel Rising is a superbly constructed comic with an instantly interesting lead character; the hook is great and more than strong enough to have me looking forward to the next issue already. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Aug 4, 2011

    I've read a surprising number of really good "independent" new comic books this summer, and "Rachel Rising" is at the top of that really good pile. Intriguing and mysterious, beautiful and smart, "Rachel Rising" is a must read for anyone interested in "good comics." Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Aug 3, 2011

    Rather than dive into plot points, Moore's experienced hand expertly crafts a spooky and cinematic introduction. We learn very little about Rachel in this issue, but we're presented with an engrossing situation that begs to be explored. This minimalist approach should have fans taking note on both technical and emotional levels. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 20, 2012

    There's certainly enough to like here for Moore fans, but it doesn't hint at enough of its potential to draw in those that are unfamiliar with his work. But I'm excited to see where it goes based on name value and past experience, so we'll definitely be checking out more, something that wouldn't have happened with a print edition. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Aug 9, 2011

    This is a meatier first issue than you'll initially give it credit for, but it is still the first chapter in a much, much longer story so it isn't appropriate to compare a single issue to the entirety of Echo or SiP. But, if you like smart comics that won't serve up everything on a platter for you, this would be a good one to try. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Blake Petit Aug 9, 2011

    Rachel Rising #1 comes across as a well-drawn, but otherwise very standard horror comic. Having read Moore's work for over a decade, I have every confidence that once we get to know Rachel and the other characters, he'll build a universe that's rich, engaging, and original. I just wish we'd gotten more of a sense of that right out of the gate. Read Full Review
