    Sirens of Sequentials - Jenn Marshall Oct 23, 2018

    I added Infinite Dark to my pull list before it was released because the concept of a murder on a ship carrying the last of humanity sounded like a premise I would enjoy. The first issue confirmed I made the right choice and I will continue to read issue after issue. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Oct 10, 2018

    Infinite Dark tells an intriguing story steeped in depression with a deep and nuanced understanding of human psychology, plus forlorn visuals to match. This complex comic makes readers feel as if they too have boarded a space arc following the heat death of the universe. A must-read for fans of meaningful science-fiction, with extra points for so adeptly incorporating horror and mystery tinges. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Andy Hall Oct 10, 2018

    This is a book that definitely deserves a look at. It sets up the premise and danger right away. There may be something on the ship filled with guilt-wracked survivors and there is literally no place for them to go, because the ship is the last thing left in existence. Neither of these creators are big names in the industry, but after reading this book you may wonder why. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Oct 9, 2018

    Infinite Dark takes some time to get started, but the concept is strong and interesting, and sure, we've all read plenty of post-apocalyptic science fiction tales, but, by the issue's end, it becomes clear that Infinite Dark offers a unique take on the end of everything and is unlike anything we've read before.

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Oct 12, 2018

    Top Cow has carved out a nice place in the comics landscape for hard-hitting science fiction, and Infinite Dark is welcome addition to their portfolio. Though the issue does rush in the final pages to hit the cliffhanger, the journey leading up to that point is captivating. Though the title itself may be dark, it's potential is bright.

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Oct 10, 2018

    It's one thing to realize your mortality in the face of a vast universe that doesn't care; it's another to make that same realization when there is no universe left at all. This knowledge, intangible though it is, is perhaps the strongest aspect of Cady's script. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Jarrod Jones Oct 16, 2018

    In the solicit info, it's stated that the universe "ended," but inInfinite Dark,we're still here and so is something else. There are still people left to scream at the blackness surrounding us, to throw fists into open space in defiance of entropy. And while there may be a nasty bit of cosmic horror out there nudging us ever closer to oblivion, so long as people like Deva Karrell draw breath, hope remains. And an evil to counter it.
