    SONITUS #1 doesn't give away much in the title, but diving in is the best way to read. The gritty art, living setting, and vague memories pull the reader in for a story that reaches far beyond the pages. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Mar 7, 2018

    Sonitus#1,being only $1.50, is well worth buying. It's not often you can get a comic for this price that's this reasonable, which almost makes the purchase worth it alone, but when the $1.50 comic is as good asSonitus #1is then there is absolutely no reason for you not to buy this. A must read regardless of your genre of choice. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Matt Granberry Feb 21, 2018

    This is one rare issue where dialogue does not rule the day but the story still comes across loud and clear. Married with a unique art style and coloring, Sonitus is one gem worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Feb 21, 2018

    Overall, Sonitus #1 was an interesting start to this miniseries. There was no telling what to be in store for in this issue, and certainly not for the issues to come. This is the kind of mental thriller that holds your attention when the best thing to expect is the unexpected. Especially when supernatural forces are at hand. Read Full Review

    Despite a lack of intimacy with its central character, this debut issue shows promise for a series that emphasis just how much a commitment to tone lends to a story. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Feb 21, 2018

    The artwork was so disturbing and perfect for the story being told. It seems like at least half of the tale is being told visually, so finding the perfect art style to go with it was exceptionally important. The style has a slightly rougher and more organic feel to it, and combined with the color palettes (duller at some points, brighter in others) it gives us a cohesive feeling of the setting, mood, and tone of the narrative.

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Mar 10, 2018

    Sonitus pulls you in with its dark tone and unsettling imagery. It falls short on the story side, but I'm hoping that becomes clearer in subsequent issues. For now, writers Cody Sousa and Dan Sheppard have given me yet another reason to stay out of the woods. Read Full Review
