    Outright Geekery - Shaun Barbour Sep 9, 2017

    Starting out I found The Evil Within to be a little bit disorienting. If you are unfamiliar with the game you may struggle to catch up to what is actually going on. If you have, though, it comes together pretty quickly. There is a lot of information going on within these pages, and the delivery style is informative, and somehow avoids coming across as cluttering the pages. Ryan O'sullivan does well to capture the mood and run icy fingers down the back of one's brain as the details start to emerge from the darkness and make you stare into the deformed face of a gripping tale.

    Based on the hit horror video game, THE EVIL WITHIN #1 is a trippy and dark opening issue that perfectly mirrors the air of the original game. However, the comic comes with its own problems as the transitions between reality and the dream state can confuse readers unfamiliar with the original game. Read Full Review

If you're beginning to get hyped for The Evil Within 2, releasing on the 13th October, I'd recommend checking it out. In the meantime, I have a game to complete... Read Full Review

    Good art from both artists makes up for a kind of stereotypical psychological thriller. Read Full Review

    Geek-O-Rama - Lucas Sep 11, 2017

    However, no matter how many unique flourishes the art style has, it can't elevate this comic above the level of a bridging story for a game series, and it doesn't offer enough to be of worth to anyone not invested in the games. It's a decent read, but there's no reason to read it unless you've played The Evil Within and are looking forward to The Evil Within 2. Read Full Review
