    It's an outstanding combination of a tremendous writer and a great artist.  This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite horror comics. Read Full Review

    After thoroughly enjoying the first issue, the second takes it to a whole new level. Giving us insight into Brenda and Raab as well as making a few rather surprising twists in the story. Well written, well drawn and thoroughly entertaining. Read Full Review

    To borrow a famous line- The Devilers had my curiosity, but now it has my attention. Fialkov has our multi-religious team clash, but he manages to avoid going for cheap story beats and character work while using it. The Devilers seems to be getting to the meat of the story so far, and you'll definitely want to see what the team serves up next. Read Full Review

    Did I enjoy reading it? Absolutely. Am I looking forward to the next? 100%. Besides the storyline being a little messy, the story itself is quality. I'm very excited to see where this takes us. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley Oct 27, 2014

    Issue 2 of The Devilers is pretty much second verse, same as the first. While the story moves along at a good clip and the art is solid, the characters are almost cardboard"even the character whose life we learn about in this issue. They display no real emotion other than anger or bemusement, and their reactions take away from the impact of the setting and plot. I compared the group to the A-Team earlier, but now I think that they are more like The X-Men: they are individuals from different nationalities and with different powers who do not always get along, but put those differences aside for the greater good. While there is nothing inherently wrong with that, it does create a sense of jadedness that hasn't been earned. With any luck, the story will come together at the end and these issues I'm experiencing now will be taken care of, but for the moment, this just isn't connecting with me. Not recommended.

    Another good issue of this upcoming horror/adventure series. While not perfectly polished it does well for Dynamite's $3 "creators unleashed" line. The art could be a bit better though.
