Interdimensional invasion or epic freak-out? The Sundowners confront the Illuminatrix, as Dr. Shrejic dons a mask of his own. The madness-inducing, action-packed conclusion to the first arc, as cosmic horror meets real superheroics!

    Itll be interesting to see what direction Seeley takes things in the second arc, but with such brilliantly developed and multi-layered characters already in place, I cant see it being anything other than an overwhelming success. The flawed, vulnerable protagonists that have been created are each worth of individual praise, but its their interactions that really make this series come together. From Crowlita and her brash, profanity-laced outbursts, to the simmering sexual tension between Joe and Andrea, to my personal favourite, Shrejic himself, with his curious ways and mysterious secrets, this is an immaculately structured series with a brilliant premise at its core. One of the cleverest takes on both the horror and superhero genre that Ive seen for quite some time, Sundowners is a series that I honestly cant recommend highly enough. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Tyler Sewell Jan 28, 2015

    This is one of those issues you put down and realize you've been holding your breath for the last several minutes. For how utterly confusing this first arc was, the ending was both climatic and well developed (unlike Lost, this writer knew where he was taking the series). From this point it'll be really interesting to see what direction Seeley takes the comic because after this issue it's pretty open to change. However, as he has previously hinted, there are many other people out there on the streets of Chicago who may or may not be suffering from Sundowners. Read Full Review

    Sundowners has been a tough comic to read at times, but now I'm sold on the world and its leads. It took some time for Seeley and Terry to find their footing, but now they're off at a pace that will certainly bode well for upcoming issues as the invisible hoards invade Chicago. Read Full Review

    I like the characters and the story. The dialog and captions get heavy at times but the main problem is that no less than three minor characters just randomly appear in the mix, and seemingly just so they can be killed. Seeley is overreaching with the number of pieces on the board and needs to simplify a bit, the story and themes are already complex enough as they are. I also have to mention the clever premise to the way this wraps up, it makes the reader second guess what is real in this comic.
