    A.D. After Death may not be a masterpiece or a groundbreaking work of staggering genius reinventing how art looks at mortality, but it is undeniably a beautiful and arguably each of these creators best work to date. It discusses life through the absence of death and in turn, discovers the horrors that spring forth from what that means. Time folds in on itself. The sense of self is lost. We fly too close to the sun and we steal the fire from the gods and we eat that forbidden fruit. Our fear of decay, of pain and of loss, is a fear only of the unknown and yet here, Snyder and Lemire remind us that its that same decay that defines who we are and how we choose to hold onto all the love and all the regret and all the other facets we carry. Dying is life. We will go. We will all go. And theres beauty to be found in that. Read Full Review

    A.D.: After Death is an instant classic, one that will change and morph each time you pick it up. This title not only makes you take a closer look inward, it makes you dwell on much deeper topics. As sort of a theme with Scott Snyder, he has me digging deeper into subjects that I never thought opening new horizons. Read Full Review

    This entire series is worth reading from beginning to end. The characters are wonderfully three dimensional and the conflicts work both on the page and in the reader's mind. The artwork is brilliant and enhance every page of this story. It is unique, bold and worth reading. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 11, 2017

    I do wish the creators had emphasized sequential art over illustrated prose a little more with this book, but regardless of approach, A.D. works as a very intimate, very emotional look at a man finally coming to terms with death. Read Full Review
