    Not every book is for every reader. There will no doubt be those that will find some of the things I enjoyed about this perhaps a little staid. All I can say for certain is that I got the wright kind of chills reading this. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - Joel Harley Oct 14, 2022

    Opening with distinct characters and a compelling hook - there are enough airport staff and citizens that carnage should ensue once the nature of Haun and Hurley's threat becomes evident - this is a breezy first issue, which leaves readers with plenty of questions and a need for more. Can The Approach stick the landing (sigh)? On the basis of this smooth and confident take-off (sigh) one would think so, although poor Mac and Abigail are certainly in for a turbulent (sigh) time of it. Read Full Review

    The Arrival is much more than it seems and promises a neat horror premise for fans of The Void or The Thing. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Patrick Cavanaugh Oct 12, 2022

    Even if the characters are one-dimensional, readers will know something isn't quite right about the scenario, making for an intriguing read, though the final page shows off a bit more than was necessary and destroys some of the book's mystique. Still, only being the first issue, there's a lot of exciting places the narrative could potentially go, so long as it doesn't go places that are too expected. Read Full Review
