“One of the most sheerly beautiful comics I’ve ever seen.”
PETER STRAUB

"Some works of art are so profoundly dark, they cast a shimmering shadow of
redemption behind them. Soul Stealer is such a work: Easton and Shy have
looked so deep into the abyss of gothic sadness and loss, they've caught a glimpse
of the beauty and love that lie beyond it. How they did it -- how they dared --
I'll never know."
LEV GROSSMAN

“Soul Stealer is a powerful piece of work: a haunting poetic journey across a landscape
that is the universe within our own soul.”
J.M. DEMATTEIS (BLOOD: A TALE)

“The complex duality of the words and the art in imparting the story was moving
on many levels. Although there are moments of triumph and love, mainly there is
darkness and sadness. It may be one of the most profound experiences you will e
ver remember in sitting back to read a graphic novel. The debate may continue to
rage for many more years, but if any recent graphic novel qualifies to be labeled
“literature”  then SOUL STEALER surely merits the classification.”

“Perhaps the most gothic thing ever written. The effect is never anything less than
hypnotic.”
NEWSARAMA

“The saga is brutal, depraved, intensely romantic almost operatic, the kind of deeply
felt work that will trigger all sorts of uninvited emotions.”
TV GUIDE

“Jaw dropping from start to finish. Haunting imagery that burns itself into your mind.
SOUL STEALER will make readers look at graphic novels in a whole new light.”
FANTASY BOOK CRITIC

“Easton  and Shy have created a nightmare from which you cannot wake, a page turner
from which you cannot escape.”
Todd Farmer ( MY BLOODY VALENTINE, JASON X)


“One of the most engaging and provocative stories I’ve read. Michael Easton is a true visionary
with a fantastic imagination. And the art by Christopher Shy is nothing less than superb. This
book is a real treat.”
KEVIN GREVIOUX (UNDERWORLD)

“A near masterpiece…evokes everything from Blade Runner, The Crow to Robert E. Howard and
the wicked imagination of Clive Barke and Neil Gaiman. Words cannot describe Soul Stealer. It needs
to be experienced on it’s own to be fully appreciated.”
ROBERT THOMPSON (FBC)

“Visually intriguing and fascinating. 'Soul Stealer' is a vivid and intense work that caught me from the
first page.”
Simone Bianchi (WOLVERINE, ASTONISHING X-MEN)

“There are elements of Frankenstein and Faust but also Icarus and Orpheus. Couple these elements with
the grand barbaric fantasy of Robert E. Howard and bring it all into a modern apocalyptic fictional fantasy
world replete with preternaturally empowered assassins and automatic firearms and you have just a
superficial glimpse at what writer Michael Easton has created here.”

“The emptiness and self-loathing that drives Kalan, is so profoundly human and relatable that the extremes
of sadness, love, hate, and confusion that bombard him are felt by the reader.”
-- KEITH HOWELL (AICN)

“Michael Easton and Christopher Shy are taking beautiful risks creating Soul Stealer – a
dark expansive mythos all of their own, told in a unique style which gains confidence and
daring almost page by page. A gothic adventure of great imagination, visually stunning
and enjoyably challenging.”
Barry Kitson (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, EMPIRE)
