    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Jan 1, 2020

    But if the gripping story isn't enough to pull you into this comic, then do it for the art. Will someone please think about the art?! Alexander's art is dark. It's detailed. It's intriguing. It's horrific. I am not a horror person and terrifying scenes of bloodshed do not do it for me. But I cannot deny beautiful art when I see it. And this book forces me into terror with the lure of gorgeous and genius depictions. I've been aloof with a lot of Image these past couple years but if this creative team is any indication, I might have to save a review spot for them every time. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Mateo Guerrero Jan 3, 2020

    Along with Jason Shawn Alexander's superb art, Barns emerging narrative promises a twisted journey through Philadelphia's hidden heart. It's not clear just how seriously Killadelphia wants readers to take its history fueled conspiracy. With the threat of President John Adams looming large, it sure looks like Killadelphia will be answering that question very soon. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Jan 1, 2020

    This issue picks up where the last issue left and doesn’t look back. It wastes no time when establishing the threat, new characters and their motives, and showing us how the characters we’ve already been introduced to are dealing with this crazy circumstance. The writing is as top-notch as the art. This series is definitely something special and distinct. I trust the people behind it to keep going with full force. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jan 7, 2020

    Killadelphia presents an interesting and chilling tale, mixing historical fiction with horror in a more serious manner than we're used to. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter this is not. Instead, it's a direct approach, digging into history, violence, and vampires. Read Full Review
