    DEVIL'S HIGHWAY #1 has all the makings for an intense thriller: a gripping storyline, expressive illustrations, and an omnipresent shroud of mystery. As pieces of the overall narrative are beginning to be revealed, I experienced an exciting rush as the darkness surrounding this tale started to take shape. Though the first issue gives you a small taste for what's in store, by the final page you'll be sucked in, yearning for issue two. I'm all-in for this series and will be taking the ride on DEVIL'S HIGHWAY. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Jun 30, 2020

    Yet another series from AWA which manages to establish, with only its debut issue, itself as yet another comic series that must be read. The level of quality from AWA is uncannily good. Benjamin Percy’s writing is phenomenal, it’s character led stories which are real page turners. The skill of the creative team doesn’t end there though, Schoonover’s art and Filardi’s colours make this comic into a real place, with real characters going through natural emotions. The tale of a serial killer who may have inadvertently chosen the wrong victim, and the femme fatale on his tail, promises to be a good one. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 1, 2020

    Devil's Highway #1 is an intriguing debut. It's mostly wordless relying on body language and imagery to really drive the narrative. It's absolutely unsettling at times with images that are disturbing. But, for those that enjoy murder mysteries, it's a start that has a lot of potential. It doesn't quite stand on its own but the technical execution is impressive and what they're doing is rather unique. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Wesley Messer Jun 30, 2020

    It was uneven at first but by the end, I was curious as to what would happen next. With an impressive art team and the seed of a cool idea, this series has the potential to go places. Read Full Review
