    Without a doubt the creepiest comic I've read this year. Everything comes together to make a truly haunting experience with an ever present feeling of crushing space dread. Read Full Review

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Jul 26, 2015

    We got ourselves a space thriller/horror that keeps you at the edge of your seat. An interesting horror trope was used in this issue, but Niles made it fresh. Mitten and Foto present a universe that is both beautiful and dangerous. The tone and pacing were superb and I am gripped at the edge of my seat, needing more to find out what will happen next and what else will be discovered. Read Full Review

    I’m excited to see where this series goes. I have no idea what’s with the pregnant or just-got-out-of-a-c section-with-no-stitches woman, but she’s fairly bloody and has glowing eyes, so she’s on my good side thus far. As for the weird assed parasite, hopefully we see more of what it can do besides make humans kill themselves (however, yes, that is bad enough and, no, suicide is not a joke). Either way, it’s sure to get better in the future. Here’s hoping we get so scared we wet ourselves! Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Jul 22, 2015

    All I know for certain two issues into this disturbing sci fi is that it kills (pun intended) on delivering the dark thrills and chills that make for a strong horror comic. We still have no idea of really anything happening so far other than some very haunting visuals and some peculiar occurrences. The meat of the story still awaits us. Giving me a very strong desire to continue to read this one until its eventual end. Keep bringing on the darkness guys. I am leaving the lights on high from here on out. Read Full Review

    The Disciples may still have something to prove before it becomes the must have that we all anticipated, but it certainly is moving up with this second outing. Having great suspense, and chilling horror, this tale is easy to immerse into, even if it moves a little too quickly at times. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Jul 23, 2015

    Next issue I'm sure things are going to head off into unexpected directions, as we end this issue on a beat that feels eerie and surprising. It may have been a conventional issue, but now that it's over we can allow the story to head into the darkness. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Kevin McConnell Jul 27, 2015

    A choppy story makes for a quick read that is propelled by A+ artwork. It might be tough to read this issue to issue but I have a feeling the trades will work much better. Proceed with caution. Read Full Review

    Just not enough story for my four bucks. The art was often quite good, especially the colours and the facial expressions. But the story didn't move enough or have enough weight for me. I'm out on this series.

    The concept is good, but the execution is not quite hitting it's mark. The artwork isn't very refined, but that doesn't bother me too much, what bothers me are the characters smiling all the time in a dire situation, it ruins the atmosphere. The plot is alright, but each issue still feels too short, by the time it gets interesting it's the last page, as was the case in the first issue.
