    Ok this was awesome and so was the art. One day the world just goes black, no more sunlight. Now we are deep in this new dark world 13 years later. Plants and animals left in the dark change into deadly creatures. Humans do as well and are probably the deadliest. We follow the main character Val and her younger brother. She drives an 18 wheeler around picking up people and supplies. An old man and his granddaughter beg her to take them to a place way farther than she or any of the other drivers Ok this was awesome and so was the art.

What comes after that was really interesting and I’m very excited to see where this goes. Great concept and great execution.

    I'm not too sure what I think about it. It ends on a satisfying note which intrigues me to get issue 2, but the first half of the book really bored me and done nothing to make the main character appeal to me, in the slightest. It just comes off as one of those really terrible SyFy channel TV series' that has a budget of $250. It's definitely Tony S. Daniel's best art in a long time. Probably since early New52-time, as his Rebirth-era art was really lacking, after he came back from his hiatus, so I'm not too sure what I think about it.

It's just a shame he's got to draw boring trucks for most panels.

    The main consensus I've been hearing about this book is that the first half is honestly slow and brutally boring to read but the end makes up for it. I'd agree with that sentiment. I really didn't care for the opening act of the issue but the ending is so intriguing. I think this might just be one of those worlds that needs a few boring setup issues to actually understand what is going on.

    This does feel like a TV Show pitch disguised as a comic book and the story doesn't seem like anything original. However the art is amazing, the pacing is good, and it works so well as a 1st issue (a bit of a cliffhanger, slight hints of an interesting world, likable lead and supporting cast). Only fear is would be if Val ends up being a Rey /Mary Sue type, as there are some hints of that.

It was a promise to bring together two of comics’ most established and respected creators for something new — something daring. The story of Nocterra takes place 10 years after the humanity been plunged into a state of eternal darkness. From the depths, a new form of monstrous mutation emerges known only as The Shade. Any human who stays in the dark for longer than 10 hours begins to change...It’s at this time that we meet our hero: Val Riggs. She’s a Fe Nocterra began as a Kickstarter campaign.

The story of Nocterra takes place 10 years after the humanity been plunged into a state of eternal darkness. From the depths, a new form of monstrous mutation emerges known only as The Shade. Any human who stays in the dark for longer than 10 hours begins to change...It’s at this time that we meet our hero: Val Riggs. She’s a Ferryman of the New World helping to transport people and goods across the darkest of highways in her highly illuminated decked out 18-wheeler. After Val is approached by a stranger to take on a new transport mission, she reluctantly accepts in order to help save her infected brother’s life. However. little does Val know that her precious cargo just so happens to contain the man who scorched the sun all those years ago and cursed the world to eternal darkness! This book was a dream come true. It’s all the reasons and more that made me fall in love with Scott Snyder’s writing in the first place: fast paced storytelling, incredible character depth, and one hell of an imagination!!! Tony Daniel is flawless, as usual. I’m hesitant to say that Nocterra is the greatest thing he’s ever drawn because every time I go and say something along those lines — he goes and tops himself yet again. Oh, And those colours from Tomeu Morey are so freaking bright and beautiful that I practically needed sunglasses while reading. This book not only lives up to the hype — it exceeds it. I simply cannot say enough nice things about this book. I wish I could give it 6/5 stars.

    Nocterra is a pretty cool concept rife with possibility. It's also a very similar formula to Frostbite, the 2016 Vertigo series from Joshua Williamson and Jason Shawn Alexander. You just swap the cold in one for the darkness in the other and it's the same basic idea. Even the twist in the Maguffin is essentially the same.

    Scott Snyder on another creator owned project! This story was absolutely incredible, and I loved every second of it: from the focus on a world where TRUCKERS are the superheroes, to the horror elements in the PM monsters, to the general focus on character development and stakes. This is a fantastic read, and I can't wait for next issue! Scott Snyder on another creator owned project!

    Could have done without the cussing, in my opinion. I don’t think it really added anything to the story. Anyway, the story itself...the world, the characters, the motivations, the mystery, the high octane action horror...all very intriguing. I plan to pick up book 2 and see where Snyder takes this. I enjoyed his writing on Dark Nights Death Metal, and think this series holds great promise.

    4.4/5 This is easily the best book in my pull list right now. The worldbuilding is interesting, the characters are interesting, the art is fantastic. This has everything a good first issue should have. Post-apocalyptic stories like this usually feel worn out but there is something about "Nocterra" that just feels fresh. I hope it keeps up the momentum throughout its run. 4.4/5 This is easily the best book in my pull list right now.

    I really liked this! The sun goes out. If anything biological is left in darkness for over 10 hrs they become what our gal calls "shades"- a nightmarish creature of the night, so to speak. The art style and inking is really great and I'm excited to see what goes down in the next issue. I really liked this! The sun goes out.

    I received the collector’s edition via KickStarter and while the script wasn’t the final version, the gist of the story was conveyed and I can’t wait to pick up the actual issue for comparison. Scott Snyder strikes again!

Yeah, I think this might be the start of a great story. 4.25 Stars. I kinda had some doubts going in, but the story's interesting and Tony Daniel's artwork is fantastic. Definitely gonna pick up #2.

    Solid enough debut issue. Kind of wish Daniel would get a little more inventive with his layouts.

    Feels very middle of the road to me. I’m just so tired of the zombie apocalypse trope. Artwork was cool though.

    Interesting! Feels like Snyder’s back to his roots here, which made his Batman and American Vampire so good.
