Cryptids. Aliens. Monsters. All the world's bizarre secrets--what if they were real? Their existence would be debunked by a reality TV show! HOAX HUNTERS is that show, publicly disproving all variety of lore. But their real goal is the opposite: as the world's dark corners surface, the HOAX HUNTERS cover them up.

When a mysterious astronaut made of crows appears in Russia, the HOAX HUNTERS are on the case.

    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Mar 21, 2012

    The kind of irony perpetuated in Hoax Hunters, the sly commentary on media manipulation, and the simple uniqueness of the story's first tale, which introduces a new team member"who is a scarecrow spacesuit/man (you just have to read it to get it-and it makes sense), is an example of the type intelligent storytelling that the Big Two pretty much stay away from for the most part in their mainstream superhero comics (albeit with a few exceptions).

    How to get it:It's probably too late for a comic shop to pre-order the issue from Diamond, but you can check with your comic shop and have them set aside any issues they've ordered for the shelf. Or you could be all modern about things and read it on a digital device where Image is doing same-day digital releases. Read Full Review

    Overall, consider me intrigued by the future of Hoax Hunters. Outside the book's art, I enjoyed the cast and world of this new series. Hopefully Moreci, Seeley and Ringuet's universe sticks around to see what becomes of it. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Mar 22, 2012

    Image Comics is on a roll lately, coughing up new, inventive titles that are selling like hotcakes. Titles like No Place Like Home, The Manhattan Projects & Saga and this title is no exception. Its original, has a lot of fresh ideas & does a satisfactory job introducing the characters to the reader. My biggest problem is the artwork, it didnt agree with me at all. Looks rushed & splattershot all over the pages. The preview for issue #1 seems like an improvement in the illustrations department, so it has potential. I did like the astronaut scarecrow character and the teams B.P.R.D. solution at the end was a nice touch. Written by Michael Moreci & Steve Seeley. Illustrated by JM Ringuet & Axel Medellin.
