    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Nov 20, 2013

    The Strain is well worth the read and if the television production can utilize the same elements of the graphic novelization (i.e. creepy visuals with lots of dark and brutal surroundings, deep pale faces, ultimate evil depictions, strong characterizations, etc.), then it should be a runaway hit. But don't wait for the show. Get this graphic novelization now. Read it, enjoy it, and see how this will play out. I know I am. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Philip Suson Nov 21, 2013

    Overall, this is a good book. It has its hiccups that stop it from being a phenomenal story, but you should definitely give this book a read, or two since you probably won't know what is happening the first time you read it. The art is detailed and the story does have its moments of greatness. The Strain – The Fall #5 is a Dark Horse comic that is currently available at your local comic book store as well as through digital distribution. You can check out The Fall #6 in December 18. Check it out. Read Full Review

    It looks like Ephraim and the rest of his team are on a losing streak in “The Strain: The Fall” #5. I really can't wait to see what happens next issue. Read Full Review

    The short and skinny is that the series is ramping up on the writing and connections, still not a big fan of the art. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Nov 25, 2013

    It's entirely possible that I'm just experiencing The Strain: The Fall in the wrong context and that looking back on this series as a trade paper back or in its original novel format I'll actually have a greater fondness for it, but as is this really doesn't seem to be working as a monthly series.
