    The quick angle changes and forced perspective allows Chan to show so much of the team's world in simple yet effective ways, from view screens to sniper scopes or the ship's bridge to incantations in the clone tanks. And with an almost whimsical air to the art which downplays the horror elements and keeps the entertainment pumping, Outer Darkness has to be one of my favourite new series on the shelves today.

    This is absolutely a must-read series. The horror is epic. The science fiction flavors are delicious. This is a warped combination of genres that will have you wondering if man should ever go into space. I hunger for each issue, but fear where it will take me. Highest possible recommendation.

    A really fun intelligent take on a strangely under tackled genre that infuses a bit of humor in with the nightmares to make a incredibly satisfying book to read and a really entertaining story. Read Full Review

    This is a solid blending of genres, a concept that can be built on. It just needs stronger characters to carry it. Read Full Review
