    The first issue had more potential than is being capitalized on here, but "Caliban" is still an entertaining " and very scary " read. It'll likely hold together better when collected, but it's doing an admirable job keeping the tension high from chapter to chapter. Read Full Review

    I could not, finally, go on without going into Fecundo Percio's artwork that has been attached to this series. Avatar has become notorious for their very sloppy artwork and coloring, to the point where readers expect and joke about it more often than not. With Caliban, however, the artwork is simply modest. Its nothing special, but a far cry away from awful. Simply competent and the slight moments where the dark setting really shines through are the highlights. Overall I have to admit that this is the kind of story that you read all in one go, so that the weaker aspects are shuffled around with the stuff that actually works. Not among Ennis better works and that is something that really sours on the series. Read Full Review
