While Ryan DeLuca tries to piece together exactly how his friends summoned a giant monster, government defense forces take the fight to the depths of the Earth, where monsters dwell. Then, of course, they piss off the wrong monster.

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Sep 20, 2018

    Leviathan is an absolute blast. It is non-stop fun that will bring a smile to your face, especially if you enjoy dark humor. The action is over-the-top and completely bonkers. I have no idea where it's going to go next but I can't wait to find out. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Mark Scott Sep 4, 2018

    Layman continues to write a fantastic story that has you turning page after page and cursing when you get to the last one. Thankfully, Pitarra and Garland have produced such incredibly detailed and vivid artwork that you're going to keep turning those pages back to get a second look. I don't give a perfect score lightly and this one is slightly influenced by the first issue but I have to take my hat off to these guy, top marks! Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Shawn Warner Sep 10, 2018

    Leviathan is a love story at the heart of a Guillermo del Torro film with a soundtrack by Gwar. It has heart, humor and a hell of a lot of giant monsters. What's not to love? The character work is compelling while the narrative is completely engrossing you never forget just how much fun you are having. This is that one comic book you do not want to miss. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Sep 4, 2018

    From the annoying background characters to the oppressive authorities, the world is a horrible place full of horrible people and maybe we should be rooting for the kaiju after all. I know I do. In any event, lots of fun and mayhem is to be found here. Read Full Review

    GWW - Dusty Good Sep 5, 2018

    In today's overly political world it's a breath of fresh air to pick up a comic like this and just lose yourself in the story–Even if that story is one filled with giant mutant dinosaurs fighting army men in Mech suits. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Jason Jeffords Jr. Sep 10, 2018

    This issue explained enough, but opened the door to more questions. Also, the ratcheted up gore and increase in dead dinosaurs should make genre fans want to keep reading it. Read Full Review

    There's a manic energy in Leviathan, perhaps a bit too manic for my liking, but it's still an enjoyable lighthearted read. Read Full Review
