    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Oct 2, 2019

    A fifteen-part series focussing on magic that is itself an exercise in a kind of group magic, Nomen Omen is a very ambitious, little project. Given the very intricately-balanced nature of the first series and the thoughtful way that its been placed on the page, Nomen Omen might turn out to be one of the more accomplished series to come out in 2019/2020. Its certainly on track to do so in its opening chapter. Read Full Review

    The bottom line is if you like suspense, magic, and dark imagery you need Nomen Omen in your life. This comic is not only beautiful, but it's also scary and intriguing. And, I for one can not wait to see what is on the other side of the veil in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Oct 11, 2019

    I'm still putting the pieces together with Nomen Omen, but there's more than enough to catch my interest. There's a dark power at work here and it's targeted this poor family. They've already been through quite a lot, so do they really need more bloodshed? Nomen Omen is the urban fantasy series I didn't know I wanted. Read Full Review
