    If you're even the slightest bit tempted to jump on Dept. H, do yourself a massive favor and dive in. With only three issues down, there's no way to know how this series is going to go but one thing is for sure: It's going to be a hell of a ride from here on in. Read Full Review

    Pastrami Nation - Nolan Smith Jun 26, 2016

    The artwork here continues to just knock it out of the proverbial ball park: there is nothing currently on the shelves that looks anything like this book: all the more reason to pick it up. The suspense and danger just got amped up to 11, and the futures of both Raj and Mia are in question by the time you reach the last panel. Dept H is that book I constantly recommended to casual comic fans who might gravitate towards the big two publishers only- this is a book you will not find anywhere else. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - C.W. Lyons Jun 13, 2016

    Dept. H #3 is both visually impressive and an entertaining read. The story itself is unique, fast-paced and wholly enjoyable. Matt Kindt's rough artistic style lends well to a series set in a rough and inhospitable environment, while Sharlene Kindt's coloring, dark and confining, emphasizes to the reader that the story occurs deep within the ocean's abyss.

    The art manages to include flashbacks of Mia's life as she grows up following the adventures of her father, quite literally. Using shades of blue and black manages to distinguish the past, from the present. Yet they collide as Mia hallucinates the strange being on the cover. Who is he? Is the figure her father's ghost?

    The further into the story Dept. H takes us, the deeper we dive into Mia's pressure and paranoia. Making your readers feel as choked and helpless as your characters is the mark of excellent writing, and only by sticking it out with Mia to the end can we hope to surface in time to catch our breath.

    The creative team on this series is doing a great job thickening the plot and getting us more interested. Nothing all too substantial happens in this issue to move Mia’s murder investigation forward, but her search for her father’s killer is going to become a lot more difficult. Read Full Review
