"This is a great blend of Alien like science fiction with Lovecraft style horror." - GeekedOutNation.com "...the build-up in this story was intense and powerful, and well worth the ride....Sanctum reads more like a traditional science fiction novel than a graphic novel. I hope I can read more graphic novels by this talented creative team" - Comics Bulletin "This book keeps you guessing right up until the end, which I honestly didn’t see coming." - Cosmic Book News "Recommend it to any one who likes occult mysteries and big, bad demons that go bump in the night." - FloridaGeekScene.com
