    We The Nerdy - Adrienne Crean Nov 18, 2016

    Powell did a very good job, showing great creativity with different city, and landscape scenes. Also, being able to give that sketchy art effect, yet still having these characters have emotions and detail, are quiet entertaining. Chauhan did not move the beginnings of this comic too fast or slow, yet gave us enough detail, and mystery to keep readers guessing. I believe issue one sets up a great mystery for many readers, and will also throw in some educational lessons of the Yakuza as well. Read Full Review

    Yakuza Demon Killers is going to be a tough ride for Ochita and Rizzo. Watch as the stumble, barf, and ride their way through. I know I will. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Rebecca Booth Nov 15, 2016

    Outlandishly nightmarish, poetic and beautifully rendered, this is a series that horror comic fans should be very excited about. Read Full Review

    The potential is there, but unfortunately it totally missed. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Nov 16, 2016

    The story so far hasn't done much. I don't want to write it off completely, but given the fact that "Demons" and "Yakuza" are in the title, it's hard to believe that this book is going to do anything original based on what I've already read. It's competent, it's decently put-together, but the characters are unlikable, and there should be a better understanding of the story after this first issue, and there isn't one. If it's your cup of tea or you just like IDW, then dig in. If you're looking for something new and original, this ain't it. Read Full Review

    Geek-O-Rama - Brian Belanger Nov 19, 2016

    We've got Yakuza and demons, and a sought after sword which has now attached itself to Ochita. I can only guess this will turn out to be an all out struggle for survival, with the sword possiblybeing a key element. I wouldn't mind seeing a cool battle with demons, but I won't be fighting off hordes just to see the next book. Read Full Review
