"With its precise interplay of real-life fears and supernatural terror, Infidel is as mesmerizing as it is insightful." —NPR
"Sinewy and tense, this outstanding comic from former Vertigo editor Pichetshote and artists Campbell (James Bond), Jose Villarrubia (King Conan), and Jeff Powell (Earth One) boldly displays a multifaceted and thoughtful view of racial and religious issues at the forefront of cultural dialog across the United States while delivering solid horror that will keep readers awake at night." —Library Journal

Aaron Cambell does a VERY nice job with the art. I wasn't familiar with his work previously (I think he's fairly new) but he's got chops! Clear distinctive people, crazyass monsters and VERY moody settings. Feels fresh and exciting.
Ideologically, there is a conflation of systematic racism, bigotry, and implicit bias that makes this a bit confused; although bigotry being the primary driver and is acknowledged as something everyone can be guilty of. This ideological conflation also makes the plot harder to parse since the didactic nature of the comic is so important.
Artistically, Aaron Campbell's is visually rich and messy--in a style that often is used in horror comic--in ways that are both gothic and almost psychedelic. This does aid in Pinchetshote's themes. A very ambitious comic that sadly underdelivers but doesn't totally fail.

The story itself is pretty good, lots of different character interaction and decent to the horror aspect.
A bit preachy at times, bearing in mind the race baiting undertones but I think it achieves a good balance in general.
Não é uma história altamente original, mas o que a faz sobressair é a arte, especialmente a relativa das assombrações, com características especialmente arrepiantes. Já vi várias histórias de terror, mas a arte dos monstros realmente são acima da média.
Em resumo, vale a leitura, só não espere algo excepcional.
O que mais brilha na obra é sua arte, principalmente os fantasmas. A mistura de técnicas deixa o horror em evidência e cria quadrinhos de arrepiar os pelos da nuca. Recomendo a todos que gostem de artes fora do comum, temas relacionados a discriminação e terror de fantasma
