    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Nov 9, 2020

    The Autumnal will engulf you. It seeps into your bones. The characters are so relatable that we have quickly become invested in their lives. This makes the dangers they face all the more harrowing. We're just getting started with this book, but it's already become one of my favorite comics of the year. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 27, 2020

    This is a smartly written and absorbing sort of story that will capture your imagination and your interest if you let it. It's also a story that requires your attention because it's in the subtleties and dynamics between the panels where it truly shines. The Autumnal is a story that you can't put down as the unease grows and your imagination tries to find its hidden meaning. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 28, 2020

    The Autumnal touches on some of the darker elements from the opening issue that are in the background, such as how Kat's mother may be buried, and those darker edges around the corners certainly set the tone for everything. I continue to find the Kat/Sybil dynamic to be the best part of it and to just see what it is that Kat is thinking while trying to provide for her daughter. There's a lot to like throughout and the fun of the neighbor kids at the end before their mother shows up adds a little more to the overall unease. It continues to be a great read that looks great and has me looking forward to more of it to see the mysteries grow and unfold. Read Full Review

    The Autumnal feels like the movie Get Out with how it's story is a slow burn into a new town where everything looks normal on the surface but you can tell festering underneath is a dark and harrowing twist. Read Full Review

    A 2nd issue that replaces horror with a need to build its protagonists and the mystery surrounding the quaint setting. Read Full Review

  • 4.0 - Nicole Drum Oct 28, 2020

    The Autumnal started off with an elegant and fairly strong first issue, but issue #2 has already started to slip into obtuse mystery and difficult cliche. Read Full Review
