It's all been building to this. Zoey's on the verge of killing again-her second and third victims-but even the perfect crime can go awry.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho May 19, 2014

    'A Voice in the Dark' #7 is a perfect example of how to end an arc. It not only wrapped up the first arc but set the stage for the second arc with a tantalizing cliffhanger that will have all fans itching for the next arc. It's been a ton of sick fun reading about Zoey Aarons and her murderous ways and it'll be a tough wait. Luckily we'll have the first trade (out June 11th) to tie us over until the fall.

    Comics Bulletin - Justin Giampaoli May 19, 2014

    I don't think people realize what an important book A Voice In The Dark has grown to become in the space of just seven issues. It plays with taboos, from relatively tame consensual bondage kink, to the mix of violence and sexuality, to the depiction of female leads in fiction, to heteronormative stereotypes about the female figure and beauty, to just what the hell is going on in the minds of our Gen Y Millennials these days.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin May 20, 2014

    A Voice in the Dark #7 is simply superb entertainment at its finest. It feels like an extremely high point in the franchise that embraces its crescendo status right before this opening volume ends by its own terms. To sum up: it's not perfect but it gets so close that this is without a doubt a must own for any discerning fanboy or fangirl. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II May 22, 2014

    I look at all the aspects of this issue and of the entire seven in the story to be perfect. The flow and pace of the story combined with the amazing dark, yet cool artwork create a witches brew of devilish delights. And, it looks like someone may know exactly what Zoey is up to as well (?) Only the future will reveal this answer however. And only through Mr. Taylor will we be entertained by its outcome. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell May 23, 2014

    Taylor ends his first arc in style. Things that have been built up are resolved, but a new thread is left dangling to entice readers into returning when things start back up. There are still some unanswered questions, but it looks like things are starting to become connected. Read Full Review

    The end of this story arc gives me even more reason to tout Taylors work on the series. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ashley Victoria Robinson May 26, 2014

    A Voice in the Dark #7 is great and this issue is very accessible a good jumping on point for readers who have considered taking a look at this series, but not made the leap yet. Zoey is intriguing, her actions are brutal and now she at the end of the issue is faced with a big obstacle. A Voice in the Dark #7 will pull you in and youll be hooked. Its a fantastic independent comic book that deserves your readership. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Jesse Scheckner May 28, 2014

    The only critique worth mentioning is that, although I suppose it's necessary to actually show Zoey murder Dawn and Brock after building up to for so long, it felt a bit anticlimactic as a result of the flash-forwards used beforehand in the issues that preceded it. That, combined with the fact that this is by far the least dialogue-driven issue so far, plays directly into my rating of the issue, as both “Story” and “Dialogue” are key points of criteria.

    Capeless Crusader - Jesse Quick-Rincon May 20, 2014

    All in all its a good piece but a little too mordant for my taste. I imagine if I knew more about the motivations I could have liked it more but I just felt like I was reading a serial killer revenge fantasy. I dont mean that as a slight on Larime Taylor, Im sure she is well adjusted but the whole thing felt like less of a story and more of a fantasy. A large part of what makes psychotic murders interesting in stories is their motivations but that highlighted in this comic so I cant speak to that. I can only speak to the efficiency with which she killed, which felt like the actual focus. It was sufficient. Read Full Review
