    AiPT! - David Brooke Jul 3, 2013

    There's a moment in this issue where a character suggests God isn't God, but an actor and this is all a movie pitch. A character replies, “personally I love it, but it could never be made into a movie. A book sure, but not a movie.” One wonders if that was the goal, but was instead made into this very comic. A nice balance if you think about it, because comics tend to be a format between books and movies. Go read this great comic! Read Full Review

    Next Testament #2 is a fantastic sophomore issue, which elaborates upon the mysteries of the first issue and provides a strong foundation upon which to build the rest of the series. It's a privilege to be treated to a new original story from the mind of Clive Barker, and Mark Miller's strong script manages to do justice to Barker's unique vision. Read Full Review

    I love this comic because it offers a new end of the world story. I don't know what Wick's true intentions are, but I think he is pissed at the humans and wants them to not follow his word, if his word becomes clear, but rather follow truth. Wick is the most honest character and if anything should tell you about his word it should be his actions. So I assuming that truth will be the key. Read Full Review

    Next Testament is itself truly a testament to unique story telling. The overall feel of the book and the dialogue arent like much else that you could be reading now. In a medium overcrowded with copycats and overused plots and themes, Clive Barker and the rest of the creative team have crafted something that deserves a place on your pull list amongst the legion of caped crusaders and pulp heroes. If you crave stories that are different and do more than provide a source of gratuitous action then you should definitely give this book a try. Read Full Review
