Generally favorable ratings

Based on 9 critic ratings.



Supernatural creatures exist among the common folk, and America is comprised of just 31 states. It’s 2003, and Vince Okonma has lost his parents and moved in with his secret mercenary cousin and his video game-making roommate when he befriends “the greatest vampire who’s ever lived.” And that’s just the first 20 pages. Welcome to Florida.

A new vision of urban gothic adventure starts here! Youth is wasted on the young…

    There’s so much more I want to say about this book, and what it’s come to mean to me in recent weeks. (I haven’t even mentioned the ending, and it’ll likely rip your face off with its depth and impact.) But since I won’t spend 2,000 words on a single review, I will say what I’ve said is only the tip of the iceberg, and you should read it to fully embrace what this story is capable of both for horror and comics at-large. Seriously, take my word for it if only this one dang time.

    Nights #1 introduces us to a strange new world that’s both menacing and fun. All the characters have interesting quirks and secrets that promise to pay off in the future and the storytelling structure is unique. It’s a great read and a fantastic beginning to a new series. Recommended.

    As a premiere issue there is a lot of opportunity for this story to grow and expand. I very much enjoyed getting to experience this mashup of themes and storytelling and recommend this issue to anyone who wants to read an exciting comic that is different from a lot of other stories on shelves. You won’t regret sinking your teeth into it, that’s for sure.

    For a comic that portends the apocalypse, and includes a couple of murders, Nights #1 is both sweet and quite funny. I’m not sure if every issue will jump around this much on the timeline, or if we’ll stay in the five-years later period going forward working our way to what the final page suggests. Either way, there’s quite a bit here to explore in the unusual cast of characters Vince now considers family and the not so quiet foreboding of trouble on the horizon.

    Nerd Initiative

    Nights #1 offers a promising start to an urban gothic adventure that’s brimming with potential. One of the strengths of this series premiere is its ability to pique curiosity without giving away too much. The promise of secrets, complex characters, and a world full of supernatural creatures is enough to leave readers eager for the next installment!

    There is a lot going on in this supersized debut issue. A horde of characters are introduced alongside a brand new take on the world, a monster hierarchy, and multiple time jumps. For as fun and breezy as Nights wants to be, it can get incredibly dense. The characters are relatable and engaging, and the story itself has a lot of room to grow. There’s plenty to get invested in going forward, this initial issue is just entirely too much to process. Splitting it up into two parts or saving some big moments for later could’ve been a tremendous help.
