    Multiversity Comics - Walt Richardson Jul 12, 2012

    With thirty pages of story at $2.99, plus the fact that it is an anthology, this meaning higher odds that you will find at least something you like in it, “Eerie” #1 is one of the safest purchases you can make this week. For those who have never really tried the more old-fashioned, pre-CCA style horror comics, this is as good a time as any to give them a whirl. For longtime fans of this book and its older sister, “Creepy,” though, “Eerie” #1 is a no-brainer. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Jul 17, 2012

    I wanted to love this, but it's a big, fat "meh". This blending of old and new is foolish detracts from both. I'd really rather see Dark Horse consolidate their new material in one publication, rather than smearing it across two series and including old material to fill out the issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Jul 13, 2012

    The market is ripe for the revival of a classic horror anthology series and Dark Horse Comics is just the type of publisher that can make one work. If Eerie doesnt get better as it goes along though it simply wont be around long enough for anyone to care. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Jul 11, 2012

    My main criticism with this and other horror comics is that there’s a lot of familiarity with the content. “Beta-Eden” plays on the same fears as the film Alien. “Child”, as previously mentioned, reads too close to a synopsis of Frankenstein. And “Life Species” was predictable. The strength of the issue was the opening story, which, too, was a variation on a similar theme. But a good variation nonetheless. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 11, 2012

    "Eerie Comics" #1 is off to a slow start, but there's certainly room for improvement. With a huge backlog of reprints to showcase, plus lots of talented creators out there who could contribute strong new stories, it's not like that should be too hard. For now, though, I'm finding myself not that enthusiastic. More like "Beta-Eden," please, and less like the other three. Read Full Review
