    Comic Bastards - Ashley Gibbs May 24, 2017

    Samaritan Veritas #1 felt like I was watching a good action movie. The story is filled with drama, tension, and violence as well though not too much for now. I also learned a few things that I probably never needed to, like about the darknet and such but it's always amusing to learn something from unlikely sources. Even without having any background knowledge of this universe and characters, this is a great first issue to step into the world with and I'm sure readers who are already fans will enjoy this next installment. I look forward to issue two and finding out more about the trouble Sam has gotten herself into. Read Full Review

    Id recommend reading Samaritan: Veritas. Id say that reading other titles with Sam in them, like both of the Tithe volumes and Edens Fall may be a good idea before jumping into Samaritan: Veritas, but you could probably read this comic without reading previous works with her if you want. Samaritan: Veritas is worth the read, though. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jessica Petrecz May 25, 2017

    Samaritan: Veritas #1 is a definite read for those who are already fully invested into the Edenverse, but for those of you who may need some coaxing just remember that this book was written by the President of the company. If there is ever a book to take a chance on, it is this one. It has the confidence of a comic pioneer behind it, and the book is tremendous. The art has blockbuster appeal with lots of action, great use of color, and dramatic characters. The art from Rojo is a thing of beauty that only helps to project the action movie quality this story has. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea May 26, 2017

    'Samaritan: Veritas' is off to a magnificent start full of intrigue, action, and dubious characters. It's a stellar addition to the Edenverse that incorporates many of Top Cow's best titles and ties them together. If you enjoy tense political thrillers with great visuals then this is for you. Hawkins and Rojo drop you right into the action and the pursuit is on. Make sure you don't miss it. Read Full Review

    If youve heard of the Edenverse before, or are just a fan of political thrillers, then you should probably pick up Samaritan Veritas. It doesnt do as much as I hoped it would to stand out, but what is there works well enough. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michael Mazzacane May 29, 2017

    Tech Thrillers aren't a thing you really find in comics at the moment, Image is consistently dominated by fantasy, so this stands out in the crowd and is an all-around workmanlike start to things. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller May 24, 2017

    Honestly, I wish these schlocky Top Cow books were just a bit better so theyd be amusingly bad and not just a chore to get through. I almost stopped at page 8, then again at page 14, and then again at page 20. Its funny to see so much bad storytelling in one place in theory, but in practice its really just depressing.
