    Comic Crusaders - Jennifer DeRoss Aug 9, 2017

    If you are looking for a modern comic with an old school horror feel to it, this is the comic for you. The pacing might be a bit too slow for some; however, it builds suspenseand sets things up nicely. It also ends in a way that should keep readers coming back for more regardless of how much actually happens in this introductory issue. It may not give readers a new reason to live, but this series seems quite ready to deliver on all its other promises. Five Stars! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Aug 9, 2017

    This is an incredibly interesting and entertaining issue that has me more excited for the next issue than a lot of other, uh, generational comics that are also coming out at the moment. In fact, I made the comparison to a friend recently that InferNoct #1 would be the museum full of comic book art and history compared to the blank wall of the other comic. This has a unique freshness about it that pulls me in like no comic has since I read my first Valiant comic some three years ago. I'm all in for this series. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Sep 5, 2017

    InferNoct is a bit of a slow burn that only gets better the deeper you go. The climax of the issue sets up a pretty awesome premise that I can't wait to see explored further. Sam is about to get a whole new kind of job that's a considerable step up from taking care of an old man. Read Full Review

    InferNoct #1 is a bizarre book, but it works for what the series is trying to do. While I still don't know what exactly is happening, it seems like a solid start. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jonathan Edwards Sep 6, 2017

    From what I can tell, InferNoct is going for something of a Lovecraftian feel, but I can't really tell you how successful it is at that yet. Really, I can't tell you much of anything about this series yet. The first issue kept my attention, but it doesn't really give a clear idea of the plot or direction of the story. Nor does it tell us much about Sam other than one or two things that can be inferred from lines of narration and dialogue, as well as one specific visual element. My best guess for subsequent issues is that Sam is going to become the old man's protege in whatever it is he does that undoubtedly deals with some dark and supernatural force. But as I said, that's a guess. And for that reason, I don't think I really recommend or not recommend this book. However, if the title and/or cover peak your interest, you do some research and like the premise, or if it just sounds interesting from what I've said here, then maybe check it out. But, only if you really want to. Read Full Review
