    Honestly, I didn't realize I was holding by breath the entire time I was reading Daphne Byrne #4 until I got to the last page and let it out. What kind of madness is this? I mean, it is comic book right? It isn't a movie. It isn't an audio drama, but I swear, with each page I turn, I feel like I can hear the Gothic, scary, tense piano music playing. Marks and Jones have cranked it up to 11. Read Full Review

    Daphne Byrne #4 is one hell of a spooky book! The layers that Laura Marks has put into this story are amazing and issue 4 is no different. I cannot wait for issue 5! Read Full Review

    Daphne Byrne #4 is not for the faint of heart, and it's even more disturbing when you realize that this is being told through the eyes of a young girl. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 28, 2020

    All in all, this series is developing nicely and it'll certainly be a strong read when collected. The story is a bit slow as it stands, but I'm loving the horror imagery and the slow burn ideas at work here. Hill House Comics continues to be a massive hit for DC Comics and I simply can't wait to see what season 2 looks like when this and the other series wrap up. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 11, 2020

    Daphne Byrne continues its spiral into sheer, unbridled terror. Things get darker and grimmer for our main character as the horrors mount around her, both from the real world and the supernatural. Read Full Review

    For any comic to resonate it has to be greater than the sum of its parts, and that's so rare that you could write a very thin volume about those moments in comics.But if there was such a book that accomplishes that its Daphne Byrne .
    This is one of DC Comics finest efforts to date,the Hill House imprint notwithstanding , and what makes it so amazing is that the redefinition of horror comes from a classically written and drawn book.
    Marks writes with such subtle depth that when the tension mounts I found myself drawing up my arms and legs as if expecting a body blow. This is a most seductive book, nervously turning each page, taking in the realization that this little ripple is becoming a tidal wave.And thats in no small part due more

    One of the last videos I recorded on my Youtube channel was a review ripping apart Daphne Byrne #1. Three Issues later we're looking at a story that has moved from the realm of vaguely interesting to the point of actually being captivating. I'm still not a big fan of the art but every other aspect of the series has had notable improvement.

    Daphne and the entity that accompanies her visit Mr. Brooke, a skeptic. Daphne's plan is to use Brooke to assist in pulling her mother from under the influence of the con-men that have taken obvious advantage of her.

    The problem here is that Daphne is also obviously being manipulated by demonic forces. The boy that follows Daphne has all but dropped the veneer of being an ally and more

    Just when I thought this was looking better, it all took a turn to Snoozeville.

    "Move along, folks. Nothing to see here."
