Select praise for ECLIPSE:
“ECLIPSE has all the feel of a Raymond Chandler novel. David Baxter is a compelling lead character, hollowed out by the disaster that broke the world and reluctant to be an active participant, not just in the murder investigation but society as a whole.” —IGN
“A great book with a really original spin on traditional sci-fi.”
—All-Comic (5/5 overall score)
“Kaplan’s storytelling style is succinct, and the art by Timpano has never been better.”
—Word of the Nerd (10/10 overall score)
“This is a story that sees the world reimagined but still manages to explore the human condition.”
—GeekFeed (5/5 overall score)
“Extremely appealing to the eye.”
—Bounding into Comics (10/10 overall score)
“Part mystery, part monster tale, and all science fiction, ECLIPSE keeps getting better as Kaplan unfolds this dystopian detective story. Timpano and Kaplan are one impressive voice.”
