“Orpheus is a beautiful tale about fighting fate and death to return to the one you love. Unfortunately, such tales don’t always end happily and Orpheus learns the hard way that even in triumph tragedy can strike. A touching story with fantastic and haunting art.” – Brett Schenker, GraphicPolicy.com
“Orpheus is an ethereal and haunting tale of love and loss with flowing dialog and moody artwork perfectly fitting the tone of the book.” – Erik Hendrix, Zedura Magazine
“The best Orpheus tale since Nick Cave’s epic ballad The Lyre of Orpheus. Escape artists, a hint of murder, mystery and gorgeous artwork, what’s not to love.” – Troy Mayes, ImpulseGamer.com
“Orpheus is a strong, gripping tale of love and death, backed up by dark, haunting artwork, and suburb mystery. This is how a mystery comic should be.” – Kevin Cortez, HalfChannel.com
