    Some people did not follow this comic from the beginning, and they're picking it up now.  This third issue is a great example of the old 'three issue rule.'  If readers have not followed The Eighth Seal yet, it is not too late to grab the first two issues and 'jump on.'  Otherwise, it may become too complicated - the conspiracies may become too labyrinthine to jump in at issue four of eight.  In that case, readers are advised to get the trade paperback.  In fact, readers are advised to buy the trade paperback anyway - this is a story worth keeping and re-reading.

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Feb 6, 2016

    The Eighth Seal has quickly become one of the scariest comics on the stands today. It is packed with the kind of horror that hits hard, leaving you breathless yet begging for more. There are scenes that land with Lovecraftian levels of madness, but you cannot look away despite how creepy they may be. Read Full Review

    This story is safe in James Tynions hands. It feels very much like a solid story with the momentum to keep propelling forward. Focusing on the First Lady is a bit of a treat and she is most certainly not a 19th century wife, ready to wither at the prospect of a small fright. The artwork is clean, classy and when needed, horrific. The marriage of a modern, elite sphere and mystical, ancient one is handled deftly. Definitely a series to be possessed by. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Feb 3, 2016

    Where Tynion truly succeeds in this issue is with Greene's dream sequence. It's incredibly disjointed, but in a purposeful way that's both wonderfully surreal and supremely tragic. That type of great character work, along with Rock's fantastic art, is more than enough to keep me coming back for more"even if the plot looks like it might be heading in a somewhat generic direction.
