    We The Nerdy - Jack Johnston Jun 30, 2016

    If you read Stange Nation and were left wanting more or if you want to see breath-taking action married with heart-stopping horror and suspense, Semiautomagic is for you. De Campi's writing is perfectly blended with Ordway's art and sense of flair when it comes to creating this pulp adventure marvel, grab it while you can. Read Full Review

    Pastrami Nation - Daniel Schwartz Jul 4, 2016

    Backing this creative and fascinating story with his impressive pencils is Jerry Ordway. His art style is reminiscent of classic horror tales and matches the dark tone of the story. The evil smiles that he gives some of the villains will remain with you long after you put this book down. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Justin Wood Oct 4, 2016

    Only a few hours into October when I write this, and I've already been weirdly blessed with not just two of the best books I've read this year, but two of the best horror books I've read in a while. While Deadman: Dark Mansion of Forbidden Lovetook care of the Old Dark House side of the Halloween spirit, Semiautomagictakes the more grand nightmare side of things. Halloween comics are usually not this good to me, and I am more than grateful to have something legitimately creative and eerie to read again in the 31 day lead up to Halloween. Read this. Get it on paper, so you can flip through Ordway's art from time to time. Di Campi might be walking some familiar ground, but Semiautomaticmakes a damn good case for the revisit. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Garcia Jun 30, 2016

    Undoubtedly, the mystery and monster hunting play better when put together whole, but the book doesn't entirely smoothly translate to a collection. Read Full Review

    Jerry Ordway's art is excellent, but the short serial nature of the stories compiled here leads to a bit of a disjointed book lacking flow.
