"The first issue, just out ($6), is a nice, deceptively gentle entree into what promises to be a proper kick-in-the-teeth bit of horror about the Mexican Day of the Dead."

"...Nenetl of the Forgotten Spirits fits right in with independents like Yi Soon Shin, the works coming out of India that focus on the Hindu Gods, and some of the more interesting comic books coming out of Denmark and Finland. There is a large tradition to uphold here, and Nenetl of the Forgotten Spirits does so brilliantly."
