    Following The Nerd - Jake Tanner Dec 8, 2013

    Something really special is happening with this series. Being only 2 issues in, I'd highly suggest you grab both issues and catch up because Larime Taylor is taking us on one hell of a ride that only promises to get better and better. Zoey is a great new character in comics, and while she's so mentally ill, you can't help but sympathize with her on some level. As the story develops I can't wait to see how she is going to deal with her urges and the questions that are bound to follow. Is she ever going to be able to control it? Is her Uncle Zeke, a respected officer of the law, ever going to catch on to what she really is? What about her family? All of these questions are sure to be answered in the future, and this reviewer can't wait! Read A Voice in the Dark today! Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Dec 18, 2013

    I look at all the aspects of this book to be near perfect. The flow and pace of the story, the artwork slightly dark in nature, yet oozing with emotion, the foreshadowing (her Uncle is a homicide detective) it all makes for an exceptional tale by an exceptional author and I for one like Zoey am craving. This is a spectacular piece of literature. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Steven Merced Dec 18, 2013

    With this issue Larime Taylor has cemented himself as one of my favorite writers of the year. I know that it's only based on two issues but the way he is able to mix the sense of a dark and grim reality is something that resonates with me long after I have read the issue. "A Voice In The Dark" is a must read for anyone who is looking for a story that helps you escape your reality and venture into a darker more interesting one. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - J Skyler Jan 11, 2014

    Ultimately, this issue can be described as a massive trigger warning, but one well worth the read if you are able to do so from a safe place mentally. I recommend it not only for its impressive writing, but for anyone interested in suicide prevention. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Dec 17, 2013

    A Voice in the Dark #2 is a must own book. I'll be honest, after the first issue I though I knew where this was going but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. What we have in our hands is a fascinating concept that deserves a chance. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Dec 19, 2013

    All told, this is an involving issue and an effective second chapter that draws us deeper into Zoey's world while maintaining an aura of tension and mystery. Moving forward, there's no telling where this series is going; but knowing Zoey, it's going to be worth your while to tune in. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Dec 18, 2013

    A Voice In The Dark is a grim, gritty, and often chilling look at the dark side of human nature. This takes all the dramatics and struggle of shows like Dexter and Criminal Minds and puts it in a comic book wrapping. Taylor has really pulled readers in with the first two issues and it will be interesting to see where he takes readers from there. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Zackery Cote Dec 25, 2013

    While I wouldn't say that the second issue of A Voice in the Dark is bad, it was a little bit disappointing. I almost think it would've served better as a standalone issue. As a sequel, it leaves a bit to be desired. It did less to advance the story and more to reinforce what was already established in the first issue. I'm already interested in Zoey; I don't need a stranger to remind me of why she's an intriguing character. Moreover, what's interesting about Zoey is how her violent tendencies, which should be deplorable, are endeared by Zoey's lover for her sister. While this is brought up in A Voice in the Dark #2, it should be much more prevalent in Zoey's mind. I find it hard to fault a comic for being too good in its first issue, but the good first issue wrote a check that this second issue doesn't seem able to cash. I'm still curious to see what happens in issue #3, but I hope it focuses more on Zoey and less on her caller. Read Full Review
