D&D: Infernal Tides #3 Reviews

Comics For Sinners: “This comic book keeps delivering. Good story. Great art. Endings that keep you yearning for more.”

Fanboy Factor: “It’s richly complex, vastly full of characters and dramatic tension, battles that seem unwinnable, and good versus the evil.”

Screen Rant: “…exquisite imagery and precise linework that conveys both the magnitude and scale of Avernus and the claustrophobic intimacy of a vicious street brawl with the legions of Hell.”

Sequential Planet: “It’s a fun adventure that has tons to love and a wonderful start to the return of comic books”
