    Multiversity Comics - Christopher Egan May 19, 2023

    A classic tale of creepy history found in the oldest towns of the United States that plays with universal human and horror themes while still tackling issues that feel so distinctly American, in the worst sense. We've seen it before, but we can always use fresh voices. Read Full Review

    There's a brave and methodical slowness toGood Deeds #1that gives the book so much time to develop it's characters, plot, and tension in a way that never allows the reader to disengage from the narrative. Tempting and terror-ridden, this is a great indie horror comic that's striving to put its character's first and foremost. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 17, 2023

    It takes a lot of guts to fade in on a moody murder drama over the course of a long, slow, sustained first issue. Its not exactly an issue that dares the reader to look at it, but it isnt particularly interested in appealing to any eyes that happen to be scanning through it at any given moment. One has to respect the attitude of a story that is so very, very sure of itself that it doesnt need to slam itself in the readers face just to get people intrigued. With the mood and tone for Good Deeds being what it is, itll be fascinating to see where its going from here. Read Full Review

    This is a thriller-horror with several twist so you will want to pick up Good Deeds to fill in the gaps. The writing is superb and really does a fantastic job in building to the last few pages. The pacing is excellent and the art is great. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams May 10, 2023

    I'm getting some serious Stephen King vibes from the faintly insidious small town setting, which is most definitely a good thing, and the final pages ramp up both the horror and the intrigue while still managing to provide way more questions than answers. It's still too early to tell exactly where this story is headed, but you can consider me well and truly hooked. Another solid addition to the ‘Dark Spaces' series. Read Full Review

    What comes next as Dark Space: Good Deeds continues will ultimately determine whether this introduction is worthwhile, but the chances seem good that'll only get more interesting from here. Read Full Review
