    Captain Kronos " Vampire Hunter #1 continues the story from the cult classic Hammer horror film of the same name. Accessible to new readers, the comic book possesses all the aspects of Hammer's horror style, the endearing elements of Brian Clemens' film, and the fast pace feel of modern horror. Dan Abnett, Tom Mandrake, and Sian Mandrake nail this premiere issue in what I hope will result in a long running series. Read Full Review

    Those who don't enjoy classic horror or vampire stories will find little to enjoy in Captain Kronos' adventures. Genre enthusiasts, however, will love it for the treasure it is. The series will also find appeal among fans of Red Sonja, who may see Carla " here allowed a more active role than in the original movie " as a spiritual sister to the She-Devil-With-A-Sword.

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Sep 26, 2017

    Abnett, in this first issue, has done a wonderful job of reintroducing the world to Captain Kronos and his assistants to a new generation. In just one issue you already get a sense of who these three characters are. Kronos is the self-assured, strong lead; Grost is the wily veteran with all the knowledge, and Carla is the brash, young newcomer. This, coupled with the fantastic art, truly makes a great first issue. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Kelsey McConnell Sep 30, 2017

    Dan Abnett's story fails to bring something new to the general concept of vampire dramas, but some of the lore is fresh and new. While the characterization is shaky, the gritty art by Tom Mandrake is captivating. Read Full Review
