    I started to question if Polly Peachpit was the villain. Creepy cat children. What else could I ask for? Also art to literally die for. Read Full Review

    I don't have the slightest idea as to where the overall story is heading, and that is really exciting. Tim Seeley is crafting a crazy narrative around great characters and the art team delivers an awesome looking book to go along with that. This series definitely gets my stamp of approval.

    DC Comics News - Alex McDonald Jan 25, 2018

    Imaginary Fiends is still one of the best books DC/ Vertigo puts out each month. Seeley and Molnar are a combination to look out for and one I hope work together more often. With twists occurring regularly theres no way to tell what will happen next other than to pick up the next issue as soon as its released. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Feb 4, 2018

    The connections made bring Melba and Crockett closer to finding out the truth and it has some dire consequences. There's a conspiracy at work here and it's pretty cool. Imaginary Fiends is a top-tier mystery with horrifying interdimensional creatures. It doesn't rely on these otherworldly beings to move things forward. There are times you can remove them entirely and it would still be a captivating read. Read Full Review

    Imaginary Fiends continues to be a good example of how character can drive a book as much as its set pieces. Read Full Review

    This feels like an ideal setup for a long term series, and it may even have as many legs as Polly Peachpit herself. Read Full Review
