    All-Comic - Matthew Strackbein Dec 13, 2016

    Shadows on the Grave is as fun and clever as it is horrific. You'll smile, even laugh at parts, while other moments will make you cringe and wince. That's the point. This book is the product of a true master who knows exactly what he's doing. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Jeremy Radick Dec 13, 2016

    With Shadows on the Grave #1, legendary creator Richard Corben once again proves his unique skills and unmistakable talent as a visual storyteller. Even if the horror anthology approach is somewhat old-fashioned, that's precisely the point, and you won't find better campfire stories, or more gorgeous art, anywhere else. Read Full Review

    Although SHADOWS ON THE GRAVE #1 is not a great introduction to Richard Corben's work, it does deliver what we've come to expect visually from this legendary artist. Corben's fans should be satisfied by this new content, even though it's lacking in terms of plot. For those looking for more Corben or just something spooky, SHADOWS ON THE GRAVE #1 is worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Stephen Terry Dec 10, 2016

    The stories in this book are short and sweet and at the end had me awaiting for the next issue. This book comes recommended despite its flaws of trying to cram way too much in 35 pages and its lack of variety in the art. If you need something to fill the void until Tales from the Crypt returns this book is perfect for you. Read Full Review
