    The Beautiful Death may prove beyond the grasp of many comic book readers. There is little in the way of action and plot in this first chapter and the characters are hardly memorable. Those who rise to its challenge, however, will be rewarded with an unusual and rewarding reading experience. Read Full Review

    The art of THE BEAUTIFUL DEATH #1 carries each subsequent element of the story to masterful effect. Though we don't learn much about the characters or why the world ended, the story shows us how the characters react emotionally to their fate. Plenty of shots of the city almost swallow the characters, enough to drive home the emotions that unite the heroes: overwhelming isolation and insignificance. Yet despite this, the characters persist, and THE BEAUTIFUL DEATH #1 leaves its narrative on an optimistic note. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Michael D Sep 27, 2017

    The Beautiful Death offers an intriguing, slower-paced story in a genre where that's not too common. Paired with the story is incredible art that everyone should see. Mathieu Bablet's English debut book might have a steep price tag of $5.99, but it is still worth a pick up on a crowded Wednesday. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Daniel Vlasaty Sep 27, 2017

    All in all, The Beautiful Death is not a bad book. There wasn't anything about it that I outright hated or anything like that. But it just didn't blow me away either. And it's also almost impossible to tell what kind of book it's going to become from this initial issue. If it's going to be good or bad. Issue #1 just kind of ends, leaving us hanging there. I'm not sure if it's enough to hold me until the second issue comes out. As I said, the one thing this book has going for it is the art, mainly the setting and backgrounds. Also, it's got a great fucking title. But there's the mystery of the insects that has me slightly intrigued. It's probably enough to get me to come back to it again. At least for another issue. Maybe this next one will make it easier to decide if it's worth it or not. Read Full Review
