    Big Comic Page - Dean Walsh Jul 8, 2014

    It's a great book and one you should definitely consider picking up. There's this uncomfortable feeling inside you as you read but in a good and intentional way. You are sucked into the atmosphere and the imagery of the book and you don't know what is going to happen next. You become empty wanting more. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Joel Raivid Jul 9, 2014

    Really driving this series forward is the art. The panelling is fantastic and really edgy (literally), the parts of the issue in the past giving us a look at past manifestations of the virus is really effective using this way of panelling. But besides the panelling, the actual art itself is really unique especially the colouring which has a sort of faded smudge to it and really creates the whole chilling atmosphere that is often found in these small town murder mystery type TV shows. The atmosphere created therefore is truly in tune with what we are reading thereby creating a seamless blend and an excellent reading experience. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Jul 8, 2014

    While Cullen Bunn masterfully weaves this horror story into life, Vanesa R. Del Rey's artwork creates this sinister world our characters are just trying to survive. The story could easily take place in our world, and that's what makes it so unsettling. A creative idea that proves it will haunt readers far into the future, The Empty Man shouldn't be missed for fans of horror and for fans of great storytelling. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Jul 9, 2014

    As long as The Empty Man doesn't metastasize too horrendously and they can keep it contained, this series could be an infectious read indeed. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Dave Buesing Jul 11, 2014

    Cullen Bunn and Vanesa R. Del Rey got me over my fear of the supernatural with "The Empty Man #2". I wasn't sure about this comic's direction, but now feel confident that BOOM! Studios has a genuine star on their hands in The Empty Man. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Jul 9, 2014

    This is a book to stick with! It has a fairly gripping plot, from what little has been given. Rarely do we a see a dark investigative procedural comic that isn't some homage, so for that fact alone, giveThe Empty Mana shot. Read Full Review
