"Cassaday imparts a sense of foreboding and sterility of emotion that keep the reader constantly turning the pages." - DoomRocket "Veteran artist John Cassaday ('Astonishing X-Men') brings his ‘A’ game in this series for sure. The creepy little girl and her cat, the action scenes with the Nazis and the strike force, even simply the scenes of dialog grab you and pop right off of the pages. " - ComicAttack.net "The Nazis can be a go-to target for villains and they've definitely been lampooned over the years. That's not the case here. " - HorrorTalk.com "John Cassaday does an exquisite job of capturing a range of emotions across all the characters faces. In each moment you feel their pain, sense their fear and experience their horror." - AiPT!
