    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Dec 26, 2013

    Day Men is off to a great start with its first two issues.  This chapter gets the action moving quickly as the battle between the two families heats up...literally.  This is a strong story with some dynamite art.  Let's just not wait so long before issue #3 comes out, huh? Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Bob Bretall Dec 18, 2013

    Bottom line is that this is a great book but single issues come out very slowly. If that bother you, then you should probably wait for the trade. If you don't mind the wait, then pick the book up monthly whenever it comes out and get treated to a great read (but please, Boom!, start putting some summary text inside the front cover for the single issue readers). And read the text page in the back of #2 to find out about a little bonus they'll throw your way for supporting the comic in single issue format. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Kevin Mak Dec 16, 2013

    Matt Gagnon, Michael Alan Nelson and Brian Stelfreeze have created a remarkable mafia-like vampire storyline with Day Men. At first glance, this comic seems to plays off the recent popularity of vampires. After reading two issues, I see Day Men has a lot of potential and exceeds initial expectations. Matt Gagnon and Michael Alan Nelson write a great multidimensional plot that balances well with Brian Stelfreeze's detailed artwork. Day Men is great read for any vampire fan. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Dec 16, 2013

    I'm not to the point yet where I can justify a perfect score for this book, but it's so damn close to perfect at this point that I know that it's coming. There is a lot of potential here. I love how we get to see David do a lot of simple hand-to-hand combat. There isn't enough of that right now. I love that his weapon is a cane. "A symbol of weakness can ultimately be your strength" and all that. I think that there are a few things about this book that could use the slightest tweak and then it would be there. I love how ultimately these "50 families" are pretty much a form of eternal organized crime and are destined to fight for power for all eternity. As you can see, the possibility of this book just taking off and being far superior to everything else isn't that far off. All that aside, though, this month's issue has made David Reid one of my new favorite characters to read. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Gregory Paul Silber Dec 12, 2013

    Day Men #2 disappoints as an individual issue, but there's enough good stuff here to give reason for patient readers to come back for more. Read Full Review
