    Graphic Policy - Allie Bustion Jun 1, 2017

    Overall, this comic is interesting and weaves a haunting story but it runs into the same problem that the game does: it may be too vague and understated for its own good. It leaves the reader and/or player unsatisfied with the few scraps theyre given in terms of lore and world building. However, this comic does give me some hope for the comic shedding more light onto the game for second playthroughs. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Lindsey Mott May 31, 2017

    LITTLE NIGHTMARES #1 successfully expands the universe of the video game by introducing us to new characters with untold backstories. Simultaneously, the comic retains the game's air of mystery through its intelligent use of text. LITTLE NIGHTMARES #1 might not provide all the answers fans want, but it definitely contains a few tasty morsels for them to chew on. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Tom Guilfoyle May 29, 2017

    Little Nightmares #1 is a fine issue for anyone who is a fan of the game, but if you're not it doesn't pack enough of a hook to keep you invested in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Fans of the game will get the most out of this, but "Little Nightmares" works well as a nice visual piece, regardless of how confusing it can be. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - Ryan Noble Jun 4, 2017

    The first issue of Little Nightmares has captured the feel of the game pretty perfectly and captured my interest at the same time. It reaches out from the shadows with its own character, twisted and surreal, and while I found it a little hard to follow at times, the combination of unsettling style and substance has me looking forward to the next issue.

    Little Nightmares #1 is one of the strangest video game to comic adaptations that I've read in a long time, with the storytelling being unique to say the least. Giving us a quick pace narrative that reflects the tone of the game perfectly, the creative team certainly give us something to be intrigued with, even if the plot itself feels lacking in certain areas.

    GWW - Casey Walsh May 30, 2017

    There are definitely some interesting threads set up here, and in tone it's very much a proper tie-in. In storytelling, however, it feels unfocused so far, which is quite unlike the game. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards May 31, 2017

    While Little Nightmares #1 boasts fantastic artwork that captures the video game wonderfully and there are interesting ideas here, the writing and storytelling are not very good. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Kristopher Grey Jun 13, 2017

    Upon further research of the game, a few things about the comic make more sense. The game looks highly entertaining with a ridiculously creepy charm that attracts horror fans. That being said, readers are left with too many questions, and should not have to experience the story in another medium to follow the comic. I always try to wait out an unsatisfying comic until the 2nd issue, so my fingers are crossed that enough questions are answered soon. Read Full Review
