If the first issue is any indication, this could be one of my favorite horror comics ever. Poignant, timely, and scaaaaaaaaary. Can't wait to hit my local comic shop for more (and that's saying a lot, as I always wait for the trade paperback to collect 'em all). HIGHLY recommended!

An excellent debut with fully fleshed out characters and a creepy atmosphere. The characters are believable and real, and the main character, Aisha, is allowed to be a believable Muslim woman. Her engagement to a non-Muslim man seems to be what is spurring the horror. It is a horror of being surrounded by people who you know secretly despise you for who you are. The horror so far is abstract, but the imagery is terrifying. I can’t wait to see where this goes.

Smart and subtle, Infidel is a modern approach to horror and suspense told with care and populated with fully realized characters. If you are looking for substance over spectacle, this is the place to find it.

Really like the art and the mood, but so,Ethan just didn’t click for me here. Perhaps it’s the dialogue, which is perhaps so plodding because of how much exposition we need. Perhaps it’s the cynical notion that people are incapable of change. That feels too simplistic or perhaps naive. Will definitely read more, but the next issue better impress me.

This is the best first issue I've read in a while, interesting story about people in a difficult situation involving issues of race, that were handled very maturely I think, with a cool supernatural element lurking in the background. Gonna try and keep up with it

Unsettling and unnerving

Good stuff ! Relatable protagonists and environment. Well scripted dialogue. Artwork that frames the moment instead driving the narrative. I’m sure it’s on it’s way to earning 5 stars.

Heading for #2! The art is a totally magnificent and writing of Pornsak is so extraordinary and wonderfully bizarre. It was one of the scariest first issues I have ever read also.

Some gorgeous art here. Some good creep. I'm very excited for this title. Probably have to put it on my pull list.

A unbelievable start for then editor now writer Pornsak Pichetshote!
Grotesque, horrifying and beautifully made.
Made me fear what is the dark, is a trick of the light or... something more?
