    Comics: The Gathering - Nathan Koffler Oct 16, 2018

    Exorsisters is a series that will have me looking forward to the next issue every month so that I can enjoy Cate and Kate's bizarre adventures and humor again. The writing and artwork are simply beautiful, hilarious, and strange even if it's formula isn't necessarily new. Everything else about the series is imaginative and entertaining and it's spooky subject matter make it especially fitting for it's October release. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Oct 30, 2018

    Exorsisters puts a new spin on the supernatural detective trope. Sure we've had John Constantine and Cal McDonald, but we needed a fun female perspective and the Harrow sisters definitely deliver that. The twist at the end of this first issue reframes the story and opens the door to a slew of possibilities that I can't wait to see explored. Read Full Review

    Exorsisters is easily one of the freshest and most satisfying takes on the dark fantasy genre in a long time. Read Full Review

    Geekery Magazine - Chino DT Oct 19, 2018

    This comic is very good, I love the story and for me is very original and the art, oh boy! I really like the style, reminds me the Dan De Carlo's Archie from the early sixties, the sisters Harrow are very good characters with full potential and I hope we could see more of the Exorsisters!

    Multiversity Comics - Gregory Ellner Oct 18, 2018

    Though a bit formulaic at times, "Exorsisters" #1 shows a lot of promise, and a very good balance of horror and comedy, and demonstrates why following a formula isn't necessarily a bad thing at all. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Oct 18, 2018

    For a new series, Exorsisters certainly looks like it has a lot of potential. Like any new series it's still in its settling in phase, but once past that, I thought it could prove to be really intriguing. Already we've had a couple of mysteries hinted at us. Read Full Review

    This was a fun read and the ending to the mystery felt very satisfying. Cate and Kate are exciting characters and it'll be great to learn more about them in future issues.Pick this up at your local LCS or through Comixology. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Oct 16, 2018

    The players have been introduce and the bigger picture brought into focus, but it is hard to tell exactly where this is going. Nevertheless, with likable characters and a pleasant environment Exorsisters looks like a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - William Pace Oct 17, 2018

    Overall I think this is a really good first issue. Ian Boothby and Gisele Lagace created this title and I'm always drawn to a comic that has the creative team so deeply involved in their work. When I first read this I could feel their passion in this work. Exorsisters #1 is on shelves now check it out for yourself and you'll see what I mean. Remember to like, comment, share and as always keep it geek! Read Full Review

    GWW - D. Ivester Oct 16, 2018

    The art is enjoyable as well because it reminded me a bit of Amanda Conner's style. I can't say anything particular page in the issue really blew me away in terms of "art" but that's not what I was looking for either. The tone is important to get across in your books and this series has the writing and art that go hand in hand together and give us an enjoyable time. If you're someone that enjoys the campiness that comes from Scooby-Doo stories I think you'll enjoy the issue. I also believe that this can be a fun series for young teens to get into. The issue doesn't do anything outstanding in terms of dropping jaws, but it's clear what it's going for and it's doing it very well. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Jason Jeffords Jr. Oct 18, 2018

    I loved the interactions with the sisters, and the story was fun for an introductory issue, but I feel that if there aren't anymore twists after this first issue then the story may run on to long like Supernatural has (sorry). Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - David DeCorte Oct 20, 2018

    EXORSISTERS #1 is fine for a campy, supernatural detective sitcom. I'll check out the next issue, but the introduction didn't "wow" me. Read Full Review

    Exorsisters #1 is one of those comics that seems like a light, slightly campy and fun read, and for the most part that's exactly what it is. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Dan Traeger Dec 11, 2018

    So do I buy this or what? Maybe. It's only issue #1 so Exorsisters is just a baby. Comedy/Horror stories are tricky. Even though this series has a proven comedy writer, adding in the horror element is often harder. Sometimes it takes a while for the creative team on a comedy/horror book to even things out, (I'm looking at you Hack/Slash.) That said, Exorsisters does have some inspired moments. The reverse demonic possession and Mom's big reveal at the end are brilliant. Hopefully this will just get better as it ages. I'm definitely in this, at least for a few issues. It falls flat in a lot of ways, but I'm willing to follow this story for a while to see if it lives up to its potential. Read Full Review

    When I don't spot a book, thank you Comics Review to be there and make me the need to try.
    This is from the bottom of my heart, because this was the best reading (With another one) of this week.
    I enjoyed the personality of Cate & kate & there investigation. That was fun (I loved the demon possessed by a 8 year old girl ^^)

    Cover - I find the variant where both make a stand in front of demons. Nice but not related 1/2
    Writing - Kate & cate are well written, with good idea. Even the bride was nicely written. I loved the solution of the investigation. And I was hooked some more with the cliffhanger. 2.5/3
    Arts - Not perfect. I see why the review I read speak of a taste of Amanda conner. But I like that Legace do more
