    A few pages of story, a lot of pages of intense imagery. And all of it demands you find out more next issue. Read Full Review

    I suppose that leaving your readers wanting more is one of the better problems a creator could have, and Fawkes has certainly shaped an engaging world for Underwinter that Im eager to continue exploring. If you were drawn in by the vaguely apocalyptic, cosmic horror creepiness and moody, provocative watercolor art of the first six issues, then A Field of Feathers shouldnt be missed. 4/5 Read Full Review

    Stellar art and a sense of mysterious dread make this issue one to check out, as long as you don't mind slow-buildups. Read Full Review

    A lot of great imagery and creepy visuals but light on plot and heavy on the empty space. Fawkes' fans will love it, others might have a harder time getting into it. Read Full Review

    They say familiarity breeds contempt. There is nothing here that we haven't seen before. Maybe Fawkes has come to the well once too often. Read Full Review

    This issue certainly marks the beginning of something because we as the readers are given a few specks of the overall plot which is both good and bad. Read Full Review

    Overall, I would expect the beginning of a storyline to present more for new readers. I was disappointed in the lack of clarity in this comic, but maybe if I knew more about the subject matter it would be different. Reading the first issue of a story arc however, it shouldn't be such a puzzle. Read Full Review
