"One that should not be ignored." -Newsarama

LIBRARY JOURNAL -- Aisha is making inroads with her boyfriend Tom's family, particularly his son Kris, with whom she shares a geeky love of Star Wars. There's some friction, however, between her and Tom's mother, Leslie, owing to Aisha's Islamic faith. Aisha is forgiving of Leslie's slights as careless cluelessness, but Tom finds his mother's asking Aisha to eat pork unforgivable and symbolic of unresolved hatred. Since their apartment building recently suffered through a sizable explosion from a possible Muslim terrorist, the mood among the neighbors is tense. On top of this, Aisha has to deal with unknown forces only she can detect-ghastly, murderous beings she's afraid to acknowledge as existing. Unable to talk about this supernatural threat with best friend Medina, who brought Aisha and Tom together, how can she hope to survive?
VERDICT Sinewy and tense, this outstanding comic from former Vertigo editor Pichetshote and artists Campbell (James Bond), JosΓ© Villarrubia (King Conan), and Jeff Powell (Earth One) boldly displays a multifaceted and thoughtful view of racial and religious issues at the forefront of cultural dialog across the United States while delivering solid horror that will keep readers awake at night.

"A genuinely creepy and modern horror comic." -Cliff Chiang, Paper Girls

"Horror as topical as it is viscerally distressing? leaves readers both creeped out and more aware of the presence of everyday monsters." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Infidel will disturb you, but it may also send you out with a newfound sense of faith in humanity." -The Comics Journal
