The acclaimed backup begins its own series! A rash of mass animal deaths leads the Hoax Hunters to the Louisiana bayou. What they find is a mystery that harkens to Jack's past - and a dangerous cryptid bent on revenge!

    This was an excellent start for the first issue and I enjoyed it immensely. Moreci and Seeley's writing is well paced and the artwork is nicely done. This series looks promising and readers will definitely enjoy it. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - Garry Robertson Aug 1, 2012

    This issue is far better than the first, with a better story and more colorful, tidy artwork " this time from Axel Medellin. The first issue was used as a way of introducing Murder as a new member of the team. A continuing storyline also helps, instead of a different case each issue. So, overall, for me, this issue was an improved experience. Read Full Review

    Its easy to conjure up all kinds of beasts and freaks for the Hoax Hunters to encounter, and being able to imagine the characters in further plotlines is a surefire sign of a great book. Its hard to tell where the series will go from here, but Image made the right choice in promoting this to a full ongoing series. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Eric "djotaku" Mesa Jul 6, 2012

    Overall, I think this book has a lot of promise. I think if you're looking for something a bit different and if my news story sounded like something fun, you should definitely check it out. Since not all comic book stores carry all the Image Comics, you may want to call your store to make sure they will have it and that they save you a copy. Read Full Review

    Hoax Hunters has all the components to be an excellent series. The art is fantastic and the writing is good too, it just needs a little work on pacing and to involve all the characters. As I want to read the next issue, thats a job well done by Moreci, Seeley and Medellin. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jul 5, 2012

    Axel Medellin's art is pretty good. Most of the issue is just talking heads, but when he finally gets to draw a giant Sasquatch, it looks pretty freaking amazing. Hopefully, since this book is supposedly about monsters and cryptids, Medellin will get the opportunity to draw lots of them. Clearly, the guy has a real knack for monsters and I'm ready to see him handle some a few more of them. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Daniel Alvarez Jul 11, 2012

    Overall, not a really strong start to this potential-filled series. The story is engaging enough, but the characters need a better script. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Steve Morris Jul 3, 2012

    But that's criticising the book for something which hasn't yet happened, and may never will. The main thing to focus on here is that Hoax Hunters, at least for the moment, is a solid read, with likeable lead characters and a premise which promises -- and delivers -- a lot of monsters. The humor is idiosyncratic and the storytelling is sound. It's a decent title at the moment, and we'll just have to wait and see what the future brings for the series. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Jul 12, 2012

    This book has a potential for fun and a unique premise that could go places. I hope the team on it can get their act together so as to capitalize on what they’ve got. Read Full Review
