The kick-off of a NEW SERIES!

Like the demented stepchild of Game of Thrones, Braveheart and Mark Millar's Kick Ass, Sean Lewis (BETROTHED, The Few, Coyotes) brings readers into an ancient Ireland filled with clans, mystics, warriors and monsters of mythic proportion!

Finola has a problem-her father is losing his mind. All the old king cares about is power...and Finola thinks power is stupid. Finola thinks her vicious older sisters are stupid. Finola thinks the royal court is stupid, and above all she thinks the clans across the country are stupid. So she makes a plan with her good friend Cillian: Let's kill all the clans. A more

    This will satisfy everyone. It has action, story, great characters, and mythology. Most importantly, it will keep you engaged. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 5, 2018

    Clan Killers #1 is a darkly grabbing first issue to the upcoming AfterShock series. The premise is interesting, the characters are awful, tortured, yet engaging figures, and the artwork is near-perfect for its purpose in this story. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 30, 2018

    I really like what Antonio Fuso brings to it with the look of the series as it's earthy and raw but with a neat style when it comes to the characters that feels right and natural for it. There's plenty of potential here that I hope that it can tap. Read Full Review

    Clankillers #1 covers rare ground in comics, and it covers it well, depicting the bleak darkness of Celtic mythology. The excellent artwork fits the tone, and the hero is given a clear objective to move the plot forward. Essentially, this story feels captivating in a way not unlike a slow trainwreck.

    With Clan Killers, the publishers have another base hit. Issue #1 of the book is definitely worth your time. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Camille McIntyre Jun 1, 2018

    Clankillers is off to a good start. Finola and Cillian are fun characters. The kingdom that Finola is a part of is a dark one and I am curious how it measures up to the other clans' lifestyles and beliefs. With black arts and mystical creatures like sirens already appearing, I am also excited to see some Celtic folklore introduced. I am little worried about some of the panel cuts, but the art is cool.

    Overall it is an intriguing first issue that shows a great deal of potential even if it is a little uneven. The characters and premise well outweigh any flaws and if you enjoy historical fantasy this will be well work picking up. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - John Wallace Jul 19, 2018

    I really wanted to come out of the end of this first issue with the feeling that I would want to read more, but I didnt, and I feel a little frustrated and cheated by that (really cheated, Ive read the comic three times now). Unless Im asked to review more from the series, I wont be back. It isnt horrible, but it isnt far off. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Jul 20, 2018

    While most first issues do have an inherent flaw in that they have to dedicate valuable page space to setting up the story, that set up helps the reader buy into the narrative. Without, you get get a bunch of good looking images with nothing to tie them together. That's what Clankiller #1 delivers. Read Full Review
