9 OUT OF 10 REVIEW: “There is something intriguing about adding a superhero element in a dark fantasy setting, and I for one cannot wait to discover what lies ahead in Naifeh’s latest quest.” Geek Sushi
“If you like D&D adventures or Assassin’s Creed, or the idea of superheroes in a fantasy setting, Night’s Dominion is one to check out. Ted Naifeh is great when it comes to entertaining comics that really build a world, and this looks like it’ll be no exception to that.” Graphic Policy
