Joe Golem is dead. Or is he? Simon Church is fading fast in the city above and Molly is held captive by Dr. Cocteau's gas-men below, but something stirs in the tunnels. How much of the golem is still in the man, or the man in the golem? And can either be enough to stop Dr. Cocteau once he has the artifact he seeks?

    An unsettling, yet completely intriguing beginning. Touching on themes of sacrifice, judgment, and finding a way to forge forward. You might have a better time of this if you've read previous Joe Golem stories, but even as an introduction, this atmospheric pulp mystery still reads exceedingly well. Read Full Review

    Though a promising start, Joe Golem: Occult Detective -- The Conjurers #1 may not satisfy casual and new readers of the series. I recommend waiting until #2 drops and picking up #1 with it. Read Full Review
