Can’t wait to read more of this - The artwork compliments the classic creature parable splendidly to create something the Crypt Keeper himself would be proud to present. - Andy Conduit-Turner- Horde Comics.   

Playful and downright horrific. Joseph has done it again — worked his way into my nightmares with his comics. - Luke Kondor- Hawk & Cleaver  

If you have ever read any of the EC Comics horror line of releases, you will be howling at the moon with delight with what Afterlight Comics have created inside its pages of fear filled terror when you read Folktales Of The Cryptids. - Peter 'Witchfinder' Hopkins www.horrorscreamsvideovault.co.uk

'a phenomal series of shorts each one more depraved than the last. Joseph manages to cut through the bullshit and hit you square in the psyche.' - James McCulloch -City of Lost souls

"FolkTales of the Cryptids hits with a blend of real world scares and supernatural terror. It's chilling and pulls no punches." James Ferguson- Horrortalk/Funny book splatter Podcast 

"it's Fantastic Beasts as written by George A. Romero"- Frisson Comics

The artwork is fantastic, Joseph, does an outstanding job establishing the bond between the main characters. I highly recommend backing this Kickstarter. - Tom Guilfoyle -http://www.outrightgeekery.com 

Folktales of the Cryptids is a particularly nasty piece of horror! - Pipedream Comics - Alex Thomas
