    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Sep 29, 2019

    Timelines are crossed to destroy a sorcerer. The reader should buckle in for this adventure! Auguste is the purest of heroes out to vanquish evil, while his sidekick and guide Jane is hiding something from this man. Future issues will undoubtedly reveal what's not being told. The villains are delightfully creepy and gross. Both time periods look spectacular and I'm looking forward to seeing where else the hero will go and has been. Definitely a series to follow!

    Big Comic Page - Adam Brown Jul 24, 2019

    Ive been enjoying a lot of the new material from AfterShock and after just one issue, this is shaping up to be one of the best Ive read so far this year. Between the tightly paced story and pleasing visuals, if this series keeps up the momentum built so far youll definitely want to be adding it to your pull list. Part dark fantasy, part modern action hero sprinkled with magic and horror. Honestly, whats not to like? Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 31, 2019

    Knights Temporal is off to a solid start here as it introduces some of the basics that I expect will be expanded upon or not quite what they seem as time goes on. There's plenty of easy things to sink your teeth into with Auguste in figuring him out but the use of Jane is what's going to make things uncertain as to truth and reality, which is going to be a lot of fun. Bunn keeps things moving fast here, maybe a little too fast as we could have used a little more foundational material, while Fran Galan delivers a brisk but very detailed book that really captures the attention. I love the color design and the clothing designs in the books as it helped to cement things well while also delivering some good magical aspects to further expand into. It's a solid opening issue that has me looking forward to seeing what comes from it as there's plenty of potential for a good story to build from here. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Aug 3, 2019

    Knights Temporal #1 is a strong start for the series. This issue could be carried by the art along, but thankfully the story is fun as well. There's nothing too complicated about what's going on here and that's a good thing. This is the epitome of "Show don't tell". Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 31, 2019

    This is a good first chapter. It's full of action and while a lot is left out there as an opening to an action story, it has me more than hooked and interested. Read Full Review

    This is a strong opening issue, and should hook readers in for at least a few more issues. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - : Grace Taylor Aug 5, 2019

    "Knights Temporal" starts off strong with an explosion of action as we are introduced to a world of war, sorcery and time travel. However, the story gets lost within the time jumps and flashbacks, which makes some plot points hard to follow. Read Full Review
