    Is this issue truly a great spot to jump on? Yes it is, but more importantly it's one of the best issues of the week period. Hell I'm going to go ahead and say that it's the best issue in the series thus far and I can't wait to see what the next issue will bring. Read Full Review

    Backwards Compatible - Paul Fiander Jun 11, 2014

    I have spent most of the review looking at this as a jumping on point for new readers, but for all you Abe fans out there do not worry the creators did not water the story down you still get a great Abe tale. For new readers if you do not want to go back to issue one then this really is an excellent jumping on point. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jun 11, 2014

    Abe Sapien #13 is an easy comic book to review because the creative team has crafted an outing that begs for compliments. It never rises to the point where it feels like a turning point or key issue but, more often than not, it echoes with intent while continuing its consistent stride. Recommended. Read Full Review

    As Abe Sapien starts a new arc, with a new companion; the story telling is as stellar as ever from Mignola and Allie as is the art work and color from Fiumara and Stewart. My new local retailer tells me it doesn't sell so he has cancelled his order; something I prey is not common for comic stores across the globe as I, along with many Abe fans, have been thoroughly enjoying the series so far and expect it to continue its level of brilliance for as long as Dark Horse is willing and able to publish it. So, if you are not reading Abe Sapien, please do! This is the book Mignola and Dark Horse want you to jump onto, so give it a chance! It won't disappoint. Read Full Review

    Overall, this was a good issue with a lot to get your teeth into. However, I would have scored it much lower if not for the back-up story, which manages to elevate this book above simply providing the usual thrill of watching the writing team of Mignola and Allie continuing to shine.

    ComicBuzz - Michael Jun 11, 2014

    Though billed as an introductory issue, some may feel the story is simply too dark and impenetrable at this point. However, it continues in the fantastic storytelling vein that has been the hallmark of the series thus far. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Mark Tweedale Jun 11, 2014

    This was a good issue. With a stronger ending, I would have given it an 8, but the abruptness of the it grabbed me by the scruff of the neck and and pulled me out of the story. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Jun 11, 2014

    This issue is also special because it has a short story at the end of Abe in days past, this maybe short but it is sweet and reinforces the caring side of him that has been prevalent throughout theseries. Making for another powerful issue coming out from Dark Horse this Abe Sapien creative team continues to deliver top notch storytelling with incredible art work. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 13, 2014

    "Abe Sapien" #13 is a good example of how this title has shaped up into something interesting and intriguing. At this point, I think it's safe to say that it's justified its existence. "Abe Sapien" is another strong monthly dose of horror, and now's a great time to find out for yourself. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley Jun 11, 2014

    Abe Sapien 13 is billed as a "Starting Point for New Readers," and while it is a strong tale that starts a new story line, it's not quite as new reader friendly as it could have been. It requires a certain amount of foreknowledge of Hellboy and B.P.R.D. to really be understandable to new readers. Despite that issue, this was a solid story with great art and a solid backup tale drawn by Guy Davis. Recommended. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Jun 12, 2014

    This was a much darker issue of Abe Sapien, but as always, executed very well. While the overall plot of this title has taken a slight pause, this was definitely an enjoyable installment. This also may have been one of the best looking books in the series so far. Read Full Review

    While i dont understand how this could be a good "starting point for new readers", it is a good read that brings some things together.
