“[A.D.: After Death] remains, in the truest sense, thoughtful and thought provoking in a manner that is rarely seen in the comic medium.” – All-Comic
“It’s intensely emotional, beautifully rendered and very diverse in its presentation.” —IGN
“A haunting and beautiful experience. Lemire’s art often has a dream-like quality, floating like smoke through the page. During the books’ extended flashback, Snyder and Lemire create an ethereal structure, a world that always seems a moment away from collapse… There is simply nothing else like this on the shelf and that’s a good thing.” —Nerdist
“Writer Scott Snyder and artist Jeff Lemire have crafted one of the most moving comic books.” —FreakSugar
