    Again, I haven't heard of Christmas before this read, but "Threshold in all it's inspiration from "Rosemary's Baby (see the one featuring Zoe Saldana), is a memorable experience. A threshold indeed that can only be a gateway into forms of art and stories from Christmas that can only meet or exceed the bar of this comic book contraceptive not seen since the days that Death taught John Constantine how to put a condom on by using a damn banana.

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Aug 17, 2022

    The Silver Coin #13 continues the trend of excellent horror stories, recovering from a slight unsteady arc to pack a punch with this current line-up of writers. This issue, in particular, feels thematically relevant for the times, and will only continue to do so as Americans grapple with a post-Roe society. Walsh meets that harsh thematic content with a style of body horror that exceeds anything seen in the series before and makes the stomach knot both on the page and in the reader. Its a twisted instance that sells what makes this book special and lives up to the content warning provided at the beginning of the issue. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 24, 2022

    The world of Silver Coin gets a bit more defined at the end of the issue. There DOES seem to be some movement towards a potential finale for the cursed disc. It seems so insignificant next to everything that its mixed up most people wouldnt think to connect it with the horrors it ushers into the world, but Walsh and company have the potential to reach for a larger world which could result in the heroic showdown against the forces of the coin at some point in the future.

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 17, 2022

    The Silver Coin #13 is so scary it may be too much for some, making it a must-read experience for horror aficionados. If the themes of motherhood and miscarriage are too much, I implore you to skip this, but for those willing to push themselves in seeing how far visuals can raise your pulse, I recommend you check it out.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 17, 2022

    Walsh delivers some dark and disturbing imagery to match the darkness of the story. The visuals perfectly complement the plot and characters and are immersive in their details. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tom Smithyman Aug 15, 2022

    This usually reliable series takes a misstep with this issue, which has turned up the gore factor to 11. The story doesn't offer any redemption, so it's largely an exercise in getting grossed out. Read Full Review
