    Overall, this is a great limited series that needs a little more support in the art department and needs to continue after After the Fall. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Daniel Yanez Apr 1, 2008

    IDW plans on releasing another three issue series, retelling the story of what happened “the night of the battle that changed everything”. And while this mini-series may cheat some fans out of a proper story, I've got faith that we'll be very entertained. Regarding the art on the series, Urru's work either improved or I grew to like it. Either way, I'm very satisfied with how this maxi-series is shaping up. Read Full Review

    IGN - Eric Sunde Mar 19, 2008

    Brian Lynch continues to take advantage of the "unlimited" visual effects budget that the comic format provides, with some incredible settings and creatures that probably wouldn't be able to be delivered in quite the same way on television. Franco Urru's art continues to frustrate me a bit, though. I think he captures likenesses well and I enjoy the supernatural creatures he draws, but the smaller details in his art seems to suffer when the action gets big and the panels get big to match. For a fan of the series and characters, it probably isn't a dealbreaker, but it does take a bit of effort to follow at times and could confuse newer readers. However, with multiple artists on "First Night" and a new art team taking over after that, don't give up if you aren't a fan of the art. Read Full Review
