    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 29, 2022

    The issue features the first part of a backup story called Dark Passage by Adam Gorham that adds a little bit of a dark kick at the end of the issue. Tynions main story also continues with a sinister turn for the coin in question. Thus far, all of the stories have had a stand-alone feel about them. Tynion appealingly coaxes the coin into a larger narrative framework as the series reaches its 12th issue. Read Full Review

    The Silver Coin #11 is another example of how this series will go down as one of the greatest runs in American horror comics. It's consistently good, with each issue offering a different done-in-one story that truly horrifies in its own way. I dare you to read this book and not look at diners differently from now on!

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Jun 22, 2022

    The Silver Coin #11 is an solid comic with the bones to be a great one. The writing leaves much to be desired - sticking to the surface-level when it could be cutting to the core, especially knowing the background of Tynion and his ability to craft compelling horror. Walsh delivers consistent excellence in his linework and lettering, and he and Griffins colors do much of the heavy lifting for the story. In a series that feels like it has something to say with the stories it tells due to the influence of the coins evil influence, this issue just is lacking in that pointed subtext. The elements are all there to tell a story about capitalism destroying small businesses, the reckless consumption of meat that will tear apart the industry, or even the plight of the working class in the service industry during an era when conditions have only declined. Instead, the script plays at face value and is only saved by imaginative art and lettering that begins to tap into those deeper elements. Read Full Review

    Readers with an appetite for horror will enjoy the latest installment of this anthology series. Though they may lose their appetites as they read this terrifying tale of diner patrons with insatiable hunger and limited food. Read Full Review

    After glancing at the cover, there's little doubt about where the curse is heading in The Silver Coin #11; it needs to feed after all. Yet the way in which it arrives at such a gruesome ending for one small town American diner is the real thrill of this (and most) issue(s) in the series quickly introducing characters and a situation that quickly spins beyond anyone's control and the bounds of sanity.
