    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jul 7, 2018

    Pestilence: A Story of Satan ups the ante with this issue, getting even darker and more horrifying. Writer Frank Tieri takes this story to new heights with Exorcist-level scares. This is a horror comic that scratches nearly every itch with insane blood and gore, zombies, and the Dark Lord himself. It's like horror bingo and it's a clearly a winner. Read Full Review

    Horror perfection from AfterShock that's not for the faint of heart. This book is graphic, action packed, and features the most terrible blaspheme to walk the Earth. I loved every moment of this book, though I kept all the lights on. Absolutely recommended. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - John Kocot Jun 27, 2018

    Pestilence: A Story of Satan #2 is an intense and graphic creation that is as beautiful as it is disturbing. In Satan, Frank Tieri and Oleg Okunev have created a literal embodiment of evil and wickedness that is rarely seen in modern comics. Read Full Review

    Overall this is an amazing installment of a groundbreaking series that not only pushes the envelope with its content, artwork and story but does it in a way that is sophisticated and beautiful to look at. A must-have for any collector of the series. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 28, 2018

    I enjoyed the first issue well enough and could see some of where it was going to go but with this one it really embraces things in a big way. AfterShock books have had some sexuality at times and I don't know how much the first series had but I'm impressed that they went the distance here as it reminded me of a number of 80's indie series I used to read that didn't feel like they had to hold back from telling the story they wanted. Tieri keeps things moving and building here and Okunev delivers some striking pages with great sequences all around, already leaving me wanting to get a Jaqueline spin-off to see her story.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 30, 2018

    Pestilence: A Story of Satan could be good story, but the need to show the outright grotesque and horrific without understanding how to present such things makes the reading experience near-miserable. Steer clear of this one. Read Full Review
