    But Why Tho? - lizzylynngarcia Jan 3, 2019

    Additionally,Hervs' art withGuardia's colors creates a series of eery scenes that appear to be splashed with a film of murky grime and blood. The comic feels dirty in the best way. Horror comics, like the horror genre in general, serve as an excellent place to focus on uncomfortable themes. The gore of this book is never so overwhelming that it takes away from the story but instead offers just enough of an unnerving element to compliment it. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jan 8, 2019

    The Empty Man is like Contagion mixed with The Purge. This disease has not just caused widespread panic, but there are literal riots in the streets as it's driven people to violence. The Kerrys give us a human face to all of this and their tale is nothing short of riveting. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Dec 30, 2018

    An engrossing narrative and surprisingly intimate art work makes this a successful horror comic packed with character and tension. As the story builds so does the readers connection to the characters creating an emotional roller-coaster of a comic. Read Full Review

    Geekery Magazine - Chino DT Jan 3, 2019

    A genre that is not much talked about in comics is that of horror and suspense and there are good exponents of the genre, we have classic characters like Constantine, Cain and Abel, and vintages franchises like Creepy and Eerie, great titles that grouped horror stories and miniseries of epic characters such as John Apple, Swamp Thing or Jeremiah Cold, we have recently seen a rebirth of the genre thanks to new comics such The Walking Dead and The Outcast, this comic is one of those that must be taken into account since it displays a very interesting story that undoubtedly will be a great title in the horror genre and coming from Boom! Studios I do not have any doubt about it. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Christian Hoffer Jan 2, 2019

    It'll be interesting to see how the comic adapts from grim realistic violence to supernatural monsters, but the creative team is keeping things interesting and intriguing along with really freaking out their readers. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alex Clark-McGlenn Jan 1, 2019

    For fans of the original, this ongoing series has been much anticipated. For the casual reader, it fails to stand out from a crowded 2019 comic lineup. Read Full Review
