    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins May 15, 2018

    The unease is more than just awkward conversation, it is the manifestation of horrible evil in a story that is a thrilling page turner. Both terrifying and familiar, there is nothing like Infidel. Read Full Review

    Infidel #3 is an unsettling look at not only the evil in the apartment but also the way that Americans have treated others since 9/11. Read Full Review

    While we might not have seen many otherworldly horrors in this chapter, the hatred in the hearts of others prove to be the real terrors. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy May 18, 2018

    This was an issue that focused less on the momentum of plot and more on the creeping sense of suspicion, tension, and unease seeping in, which serves to heighten susceptibility to prejudice. I would argue that in some ways this book actually prompts us to look at our own prejudices and bias - do we judge the characters in a certain way or make assumptions based on their look or appearances? This book reminds us that no one is impervious to such pitfalls, but likewise that human beings can surprise you by kicking back against stereotyping. An important point to note in these difficult times. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 14, 2018

    Infidel #3 is another chilling and thought-provoking issue in the series. It pulls the gambit of shifting away from its principal protagonist, and it succeeds in remaining compelling. Campbell and Villarrubia continue to provide amazing artwork, and the comic earns another recommendation. Give it a read this Wednesday. Read Full Review

    Slightly slower than the previous issue, but that's understandable considering that this one pretty much deals with what happened last time. Make sure you pick this book up.

    I go into most new series not expecting much, but this one has floored and genuinely shocked me so far. I love the complex weaving social issues, questioning race and faith. Nothing is black and white. Excellent art too with hard, matter-of-fact lines (really reminds me of Maleev and Lark on Daredevil) and then the demon-things drawn surrealistically like they're really breaking in to this established world. This is an incredible social horror book, and I'm impatiently awaiting the next issue, which somehow is the next-to-last book already(oh no!).

    I don't even know where to begin.

    For some reason, I can't really let go of the beginning of this issue: this abstract, almost glyphic aesthetic reminiscent of Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis that sheds more light on the childhoods of Medina and Aisha. It is both literal and figurative all at the same time, this shared space between them. Campbell and Powell excel in this opening sequence. Even now, I'm trying to untangle a lot of what went down in this issue and I suspect it might take some time.

    But this issue, this part of the story, is a mess: and not in a bad way. Basically, everything is going to hell and more questions are raised than answers, or at least the questions are really slow, temporally stagnated open-end more

    It is preachy but in a nuanced way, the art is fantastic as always.
