    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Oct 12, 2022

    The graphic elements of Sirens Gate clearly distinguish it. It doesnt look like anything else on the comics rack right now. Its clearly one-of-a-kind. Its too bad that the story doesnt have more lurking around in the shadows beyond Tara and her journey. There is little doubt that theres a lot left to be revealed, but Maer hasnt put a whole lot into the panel to suggest that there will be a deep exploration of anything that isnt happening right in the middle of the action. Tara seems like an interesting character. Hopefully, Maer lets the narrative get a bit closer to her emotionally as the series progresses. Read Full Review

    Comical Opinions - Gabriel Hernandez Oct 5, 2022

    SIRENS GATE #1 is a respectable tale about a young woman who finds herself drawn into the world of the supernatural. The photorealistic art is striking, the lettering choices are eye-catching, and the story has plenty of curiosity-building breadcrumbs to generate anticipation for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Oct 5, 2022

    This is a true mishmash of a book. after showing this to my wife, Mrs H promptly stated "it looks like the letters are for a four year old and the art a twenty year old. This then is a great analysis of this book; buy it if you like half dressed women and poster page art. If, on the other hand, you want a horror book with a Buffy vibe, you will need to look elsewhere. Read Full Review

    This comic is the most bare bones comic I have ever read. Maer is a nice pin up artist but nearly every page in this comic is a pin up. I fully believe this man doesn't know how paneling on a comic works and this may actually be his first attempt at a comic book. Typically, grading someone's first comic run a low score may be demoralizing to the creator but then I remembered he's publishing this through Dynamite, the kings of pin up covers and variants, so this book probably sold on variants alone. I can only say that if you like Maer's art, that would be the only reason to even pick this up. Even if this has vibes of Underworld, it's just so barebones it would make you feel like lost $4 down a storm drain.

    Blah, whatever, not re more
