    Overall, Demon Days: Blood Feud #1 is an exciting take on the Marvel Universe, one which injects the slice of life genre into this world. The story by Peach Momoko is endearing and action packed. The art by Momoko is gorgeous. Altogether, Demon Days: Blood Feud is a story that acts as both an entry way for both comic book fans and manga fans. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Mar 23, 2022

    Demon Days: Blood Feud #1 brings the Yashida Saga to a rather emotional end, and closes the book on Peach Momoko's Marvel Universe, for now. A note at the end of the book promises that this universe will continue to unfurl this summer and I can't wait. Read Full Review

    As it stands, Demon Days is a true work of art. Here's hoping it's the start of something brand new for the world of Marvel comics. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 23, 2022

    Demon Days: Blood Feud wraps up an epic years-long journey crafted by Momoko who has quickly carved a name out of comics that we won't soon forget. This series of one-shot-style tales perfectly melds Japanese culture to the Marvel universe, maintaining its own identity. It's the kind of comic you put down and whisper to yourself, "this is art."

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 27, 2022

    Overall, Demon Days: Blood Feud closed out "The Yashida Saga in a satisfying way. Momoko wraps up Mariko's arc in a way that leaves a lot of room for more stories to be told if we return to the Demon Days Marvel Universe. Which I hope we do because characters and world are so wonderful that there is so many possibilities stories to be told in this universe. Read Full Review

    "The Yashida Saga" ends true to form, with gorgeous artwork and a fable-like tone, but an ambition to expand the Demon Days universe further keeps the ending from being entirely satisfying. Read Full Review

    A fairly predictable but beautifully illustrated end to this chapter of Mariko's story. I knew what I was getting into when I started reading this...I knew the story and dialogue would likely be so-so but the art would be gorgeous, and that's exactly what I got, and I am 100% okay with it. It was a fun time!

    I love this alt-u for Marvel. It's just so much fun and dramatic.
    I love the artwork I love the re-imagining.
    It's what fans would create if MARVEL weren't under copyright. At least it's officially commissioned; DEMON DAYS is an example if the Marvel Mythos could grow outside of copyright, all that imagining. Glad it is going to continue!

    It might be the most beautiful installment yet, but the plot tapers off in an open-ended way that's as likely to frustrate as to satisfy, if not both.

    I don't want to pile too much scorn on the translator, but I do think the missing piece of the puzzle is bold dialogue. There's nothing WRONG with the prose as rendered; there's just not much notable to it.

    The language doesn't want to step on the creator's ideas, which is a noble goal. But that temerity leaves the words limp and generic in a way that the art definitely is not. It's an unfortunate contrast. If there's an easy fix, I'm not smart enough to point it out.

    And not all of the narrative problems are in the prose. As noted above, the final scenes are more

    This was fine. I really couldn't find myself attached to the narrative, but the art really does look nice, and the designs are on point. I hope what Peach Momoko does next will have a more cohesive story to it.

    Really great art. I just couldn’t get into the story.
