    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jun 14, 2021

    Demon Days: Mariko #1 continues to place a Japanese-inspired twist on the Marvel Universe, this time shifting its focus to one of the X-Men's supporting characters. The next one-shot promises to continue the "Yashida Saga" and introduce other characters such as Gwen Stacy/Ghost-Spider and Mystique into this unique new universe; considering how great the series has been so far, I can't wait to see how Momoko continues to flesh out this unique universe.

    Comics: The Gathering - James Caudill Jun 19, 2021

    Reviewing a comic that is different from what you are used to has proven to be difficult. I have spent days re-reading parts of the book or looking at panels in the book. I have had to digest this one on a different level. But that digestion has certainly been a pleasurable experience. It was kind of like eating a meal from a different culture. Pleasurable, but you take the extra time to digest and savor it. I feel the same way with Demon Days Mariko. It was such a pleasurable book! I would highly recommend it. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 14, 2021

    It's rather exciting to see comics like this come from Marvel Comics. Demon Days: Mariko by no means conventional, strays completely from the title characters used, as it's more of a thought-provoking dream of a tale. Simply put, Demon Days is a work of art to be contemplated. Read Full Review
