    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Oct 13, 2021

    We Have Demons #1 is a perfect first issue. Snyder lays out intriguing mythology, sets the stakes, and lets it all loose. Capullo and Glapion bring it to life expertly. Honestly, there was pretty much no way this book wasnt going to be great. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 5, 2021

    Greg Capullo's art is fantastic. It's beautifully detailed across every page and the art perfectly captures moments of humor and humanity as well as spectacle, horror and action. A beautiful looking book from cover to cover. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Oct 6, 2021

    Scott Snyder and long-time collaborators Greg Capullo with Jonathan Glapion are clearly having a blast in their first creator-owned project together, and the result is a madcap grindhouse monster-hunting horror romp that I highly recommend. Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar Oct 5, 2021

    Capullo's pencils, combined with Jonathan Glapion's inks, help give the story that feel, but Snyder carefully build up this larger-than-life story while making sure we invest in the We Have Demons' main character, Lam. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Cameron Kieffer Mar 23, 2022

    At times,We Have Demonsfeels like a direct continuation of the teams previous work, almost like it exists between the panels of epic DC stories like Dark Knights Metal and its sequel. Much like those stories, this book has enough worldbuilding to spin off a number of crazy tales. Even our star Lam feels like the spiritual successor of Harper Row, a character the creative team introduced during their epic run on Batman. Daughter of a preacher man, Lams upbringing has its fair share of tragedy and enough teen angst to make her frustratingly relatable. Lams story serves as a coming-of-age parable, which Snyder deftly weaves within a creation story that balances science and faith in a way that is outlandish, yet respectful to both ideals.

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Oct 6, 2021

    We Have Demons #1 is a darkly delightful addition to the action/horror genre that reunites Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo for their first creator-owned comic. Though the comic bears some similarities to previous works, it is a strong beginning for Snyder's exclusive deal with ComiXology. Fans of films like UnderworldorArmy of Darkness, along with those who followed Snyder & Capullo's Batman saga, will want to give it a read. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 6, 2021

    This is the kind of work that has all the polish and professionalism that you expect from creatives at the top of their game without any of the problems that come from overconfidence. It delivers something that's instantly accessible to new readers while having all the things that will draw in longtime fans of Snyder and Capullo. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Oct 5, 2021

    This is a heavy first issue, both in size (almost forty pages) and in the sheer number of development, plot twists, and exposition we get. Much like the recent first arc of Nocterra, this is a wildly ambitious comic and likely to be one of the largest-scale books in the line. I, for one, can't wait to see what comes next both in this book and the line. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Kevin Mwenda Oct 18, 2021

    We Have Demons #1 is the first issue in Snyder's line with Comixology Originals and it does not disappoint. The story is well-paced with the chapters exploring various aspects of Lams life. The artwork and design get increasingly better as the comic pages progress. For Instance, during the ending, the creators have adopted a different font and word bubbles to differentiate speech from Lam, Gus, and the other demons. The demons are also well illustrated and are not the usual kind of demons we are used to seeing. There is a nice contrast with black color that makes it easy to read the protagonists narration, which complements the story by providing a background to the events unfolding before us. It also adds to the suspense as we are left wondering about what is going in the background. All these factors serve to prepare us for the big reveal at the end. I cant wait to see what Snyder has in store for us with the coming issues. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 5, 2021

    We Have Demons #1 is an exciting start to Scott Snyder's new collaborations on original stories. It's an example of how creator-owned titles take chances and can excite readers who want something different. We Have Demons is brimming with ideas well worth exploring. Read Full Review

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Oct 5, 2021

    'We Have Demons' #1 just introduced the Snyder/Comixology collaboration with a bang, a Big Bang. Snyder and Capullo arrive like bats out of hell. The talented creative team is at their best as Snyder weaves a huge tale, Capullo wields a pencil like a magician, and as always readers get their money's worth. The fight between good and evil never ends and this new series puts a whole new spin on its origins. Supernatural horror at its finest. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 6, 2021

    We Have Demons #1 is a solid start of a series. While it isn't anything completely new it delivers its story with a certain sense of flair that makes it a really fun and entertaining read. It doesn't take itself too seriously and you can tell all of the creators involved are just cutting loose and enjoying the comic. There's humor underneath even the most tragic moments of the comic. There's a solid vision for the series in every way and as a start to Snyder's return to his “indie” roots, this points to some solid things ahead. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Mar 25, 2022

    This is a creatively structured opening issue that does a fantastic job of setting the table for what should be a cracking new series. The prospect of Snyder's boundless creativity running completely unchecked was always going to be a bit of a risky proposition, but watching him absolutely nail the bulk of this story is a real treat. Plus, the tone both he and the rest of the creative team set throughout this opening issue – that of a foul-mouthed, bombastic action adventure with an immensely likeable protagonist – makes this a new series that I'd definitely recommend seeking out.

    ComicBook.com - Christian Hoffer Oct 13, 2021

    Snyder and Capullo are a creative team capable of delivering a home run, but they have also delivered some self-indulgent "all sizzle, no steak" stories. It's a bit early to tell which way this comic will go. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - Joel Harley Oct 24, 2022

    La dupla inigualable de Scott Snyder y Greg Capullo vuelven a formar equipo para traernos por los rumbos del comic indie con una historia un poco cliche sobre el bien y el mal pero inigualable conforme el arte de Capullo y la Narrativa de Snyder nos crean otro mundo que como hemos visto en las paginas de Metal y Batman new 52 parece tener vida propia.
    La historia empieza presentando a su personaje principal en este caso es una mujer llamada Lam Cullen que se nos muestra en un par de viñetas como crece con su papa Cashel Cullen pastor de iglesia que parecía no poder matar ni a una mosca, la historia da su primer giro argumental cuando estando en la universidad su madrastra la llama con la noticia que su padre ha muerto de manera no mu more

    We Have Demons #1 by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. This is Snyder’s first release from his exclusive deal with Amazon’s ComiXology and just released today! If you have an Amazon Prime or ComiXology Unlimited membership you can read it for free!

    I have been eagerly awaiting for this since it was announced. So what is We Have Demons all about? Well it’s a story about demons, faith (more on this later), a secret origin to the beginnings of the world and earth, and demon hunters.

    Our main character Lam is a girl whose pastor father has lived a secret life protecting the world from demons. The origins of these demons date back to the beginning of the universe itself with the Big Bang. This book is about faith, but more

    the green death Oct 7, 2021

    Not usually a big Scott Snyder fan (though I always enjoy Capullo), but this was fun. Yeah it suffered a bit of the “tell don’t show” monologues that Snyder enjoys but the spooky demon hunting end of times supernatural hero story that’s being told here works better to that type of storytelling than I fell DC Superheroes do. I’m pretty excited for the second issue, not bad for something that comes free from ComiXology Unlimited.

    This has now been released physically!

    I am a fan of Snyder and Capullo, and this is another solid start for the pair.
    The art is always at least good at worse, to knockout at best.

    However, the beginning is very slow, there is a lot of information being thrown out and that makes it feel awkward and tedious to get through pages, usually over shadowing the artwork, I didn't like this technique in the Spawn comics I have read and I don't like it here.

    The story is good though, a Priests daughter, with a vague memory to a horrific incident as a child, coming back home after her father's death and finding out that there are demons knocking about with us this whole time.

    I will collect the serie more

    The plot doesn't offer anything particularly original, but it comes with the promise of Greg Capullo demons. Unfortunately, the main character looks like a porcelain doll in almost every panel, her emotions just don't come through at all. This is kind of important seeing as she's the protagonist. As a child she actually looks chipper while her arm is supposedly rotting off from a snake bite, it's weird.
