    West of Sundown #1 is a glorious and gory hybrid of Sergio Leone westerns mixed with the best of Hammer House of Horror. A story of an America emerging from the Civil War and heading towards the 20th century. But, with more than one foot in the past and in the Old World of Europe. A Supernatural spaghetti western from Tim Seeley, Aaron Campbell, Jim Terry, Triona Farrell and Vault Comics. Read Full Review

    West of Sundown is a western that opts for midnight over high noon. Expect more fangs than fistfights. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 6, 2022

    West of Sundown is an interesting project as we get more people playing in this era than we have in some time. We get hints of bigger kinds of monsters playing in this field going by the opening issue but it is largely focused on Constance and how she and Dooley have lived for the past decade. It doesn't exactly set her up as a hero or good person but it at least works to mitigate some of it in a shade of grey. Seeley and Campbell's script is solid as it delivers a lot of good context from the narration at times to flesh things out without being overdone or too verbose. Terry's artwork is definitely appealing with its style and design, especially with how Farrell works the color palette for it. The different ways we see Constance throughout this first issue are really well handled by the team and I'm left curious to see what's next. Read Full Review

    What that leaves is a satisfying setup for seeing just how monstrous Constance and Dooley become when confronted by those hunting them. When their small, chosen family is threatened by different kinds of monsters, including the human sort pursuing their American Dream making an American Nightmare for others.   Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Apr 7, 2022

    An impressive first issue which actually exceeded my expectations coming in, West of Sundown takes the familiar and makes it lively and fresh, sinking its teeth into the reader from the very first page. Another impressive addition to the Vault Comics library, and a series I'm going to be paying close attention to moving forwards. Read Full Review
