Way back in the swinging '70s, movie producer Sol Schick was the guy behind such cheesy classics as "Quarry: Bigfoot!," Noah's Ark: Found at Last!" and "Heavenly Visitors from the Hell Above." But when he's murdered - at a film festival! - with a piece of Noah's Ark! - THE LIBRARIANS are drawn into the mystery. Can their combination of special skills, obsessive curiosity and knowledge of forgotten lore figure out who - or what - spelled doom for Schick? And as they delve deeper into his past, is it possible that things are not as they seem and that all his crazy, wild movie...were telling the truth?

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Sep 20, 2017

    Dynamite definitely knows what they're doing when it comes to comic versions of established character property from other mediums. Those who enjoy the television show will find a great addition to the series in these pages. Others will find a good story told well with fun characters and a nice adventure. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 21, 2017

    The Librarians #1 does a fairly good job reintroducing the characters and each of the Librarians' main skill-sets in short order (even if artist Rodney Buchemi struggles mightily drawing Jacob Stone). As with the show, the story presents a mystery for the group to solve which gets even more bizarre when the dead man's body is dug up from his grave by what appears to be a family of Sasquatch for a demonic ritual (there's something you don't see every day). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - John Schaidler Sep 22, 2017

    This exposition-heavy debut issue ends just as things seem to get started. If subsequent issues can trust the audience to fill in the blanks " and back off overt story telling " there's a lot of fun to be had. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Dobler Sep 20, 2017

    It's a little clunky and the characters aren't very distinct, but it looks nice. It appears the book will get much weirder in subsequent issues, so maybe that's where more than one guy will actually get to do something. Read Full Review

    Geek-O-Rama - Rasheda Sep 24, 2017

    There is a lot going on in this story and I had to read it a couple of times to make sure I was reading it correctly. Pfeiffer has fit a heavy start in a short read, this was only about 20 pages to a regular 30 pages but it was a fun read! Read Full Review
