Underworld meets Sicario in this new miniseries from SEAN LEWIS (SAINTS, THE FEW) and amazing new artist CAITLIN YARSKY. Hunted by a legion of wolves that roam the border, women are disappearing. The survivors band together to wage war. Detective Frank Coffey is trying to understand this mythic-level bloodbath when he comes across Red, a little girl with a secret and a sword. Ultra-violent and smart as hell, COYOTES transforms the everyday into a myth we can rally behind.

    Outright Geekery - Brad Doskas Nov 11, 2017

    All said Coyotes is a strong understandable metaphor for what life in this part of our world really is like for young women. However, it doesn't come across in a soapbox or preachy way. It is a metaphor on life that is worth experiencing for both story and art. If some readers eyes are opened a bit to what such a life is like all the better for that reader. This is one of those times when something good comes together and the product is greater than the sum of its parts. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Sheena Fisher Nov 8, 2017

    Something I really like about this comic is its almost all being told from the perspective of Red. The only time that changes is when the storys perspective changes to that of the cop, Frank. Frank too deserves an origin story. Its looking like he will be working with Red and the girls more in future. Another thing I really liked about this comic is it gives away just enough about the coyotes to give you an understanding of them, but it leaves you wanting to learn more. Oh, and in case you missed it all our badass characters so far are women with crazy pasts. Frank is pretty awesome so far too even if he is clueless. I personally cannot wait until the issue #2. Pick this up at your local comic store. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - MJ Rae Nov 8, 2017

    Coyotes is magical, dark, strange, and beautiful. If you are on the hunt for a strong issue with an intriguing blend of mystery, fantasy and badass girls, Coyotes delivers on all fronts. A multi-faceted storyline and gorgeous, nuanced artwork combines to create a world full of real fears and real courage alongside elements of fantasy and horror. This is a story that has a lot of room to grow, and I can't wait to see what happens next- and find out what is fantasy and what is truly, terrifyingly real. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - Kyle Malone Oct 13, 2017

    Thats how issue #1 leaves us, with a quickly scribbled note from Analia informing Detective Coffey that the coyotes are real. For a story grounded in reality, its a poignant moment, and no doubt the first of many in what looks to be a very promising series from Image Comics. Read Full Review

    I highly recommend Coyotes. Its story is a little too vague at times, but has strong visuals, interesting themes, and an emotional impact that will stick. If nothing else, its got a little girl killing monsters which never gets old. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Aron Pohara Nov 9, 2017

    Coyotes is set up to be an interesting ongoing from Image; even though it is going to be interesting to see what kind of sustainability and what kind of legs it has after first several arcs. As of right now, the book comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    A surprisingly cold story warmed by a genius blend of colors and style, Coyotes is by far a comic deserving of a place on everybody's subscriptions with an impressive start. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Nov 10, 2017

    Part Kung Fu movie, part twisted fairy tale, Coyotes is a thoroughly original new series, and while there are definitely a lot of unanswered questions here, the strength of the leads and the striking visual style makes this an easy first issue to recommended. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Nov 8, 2017

    The pain and heartbreak of a little girl is blended with the cold resolve of an assassin in a chilling tale that is barely revealed in this first issue. Conspiracy and injustice abound, and a child now named Red is in the center of it all. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Haroon Mushtaq Nov 7, 2017

    Overall, Coyotes is off to a good start. The writing can feel a little forced, but the story has a great energy to it and the wonderful artwork more than its end of the bargain. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Nov 8, 2017

    As far as a first issue goes, this does exactly what Lewis and Yarsky should want " it's so gorgeous that it gives the creative team more time to unspool their storyline in future installments. While the final product may be a little diffuse for more literal-minded readers who want more concrete concepts in their comics, you shouldn't miss out on what could be a new sleeper hit for Image.

    Comic Bastards - Jonathan Edwards Nov 5, 2017

    All in all, Coyotes #1 is a decent start, and if you're into the premise, I'd say it's probably worth you checking it out for yourself. It'll likely leave you with some unanswered questions (for example: why exactly are these Coyotes chasing after girls?), but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Personally, I can enough potential and directions to take this book that I'll at least be coming back for one more issue. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Dylan Pucilowski Oct 31, 2017

    If you are thinking after reading this review that I'm saying, “Don't pick up this book”"surprise! I would say keep an eye out on the book. Yes, it might be bad, but it's not awful. It's a ‘so bad its good' type of thing. In fact, I think it has potentialstory-wise. It has a lot of room to improve, but like TV's Marvel Agents of Shield, it has potential to be good story overall. Just give it a couple of issues to find itself and hopefully, it will be better, if not a good story. Read Full Review
