(The Silent Invasion) is one of the most disturbing, and ultimately terrifying, works ever to grace the comics medium ... It is the combination of a straight-forward, serious, but complex narrative and the moody, haunting artwork that makes The Silent Invasion a memorable novel, "Graphic" or otherwise. These big people with little heads lumbering through starkly black and white landscapes touched with occasional ambiguous gray inhabit a nightmare world that is all the more frightening because is is recognizably our own"
--Max Allan Collins (from his introduction to Volume 2 of The Silent Invasion)
