Mad science is the punkest s*** there is. Teenage sweethearts Nat & Sumesh spend their nights breaking into abandoned superlabs to steal the parts they need to build a time machine - and they've just found the most important part. But mysterious entities keep trying to stop them turning it on. Now all they've gotta do is hang on long enough to figure out why. Magdalene Visaggio (Kim & Kim) and Eryk Donovan (Memetic) bring you a high-octane adventure full of robots, muscle cars, and queer-a** skater punks.

    As a debut issue, Quantum Teens Are Go #1 is a terrific, rebellious, crackling read. Set within a world not entirely unlike our own, if mad super-science straight out of pulp stories and b-movies existed in our world and had been embraced by a generation of punks, weirdos and outcasts, the issue is grounded by smart, original characters and boasts a ton of potential.

    Read Quantum Teens are Go. Its fantastic. I dont even get all the fancy shmancy theoretical science thats going on, but its a super fun read with well-written characters that has an intriguing twist at the end. Reading this makes me want to read Kim & Kim to see Visaggios breakout Black Mask hit. But seriously, do read Quantum Teens Are Go. Read Full Review

    Slackjaw Punks - Garret Tumey Feb 25, 2017

    I picked up Kim & Kim #1 on a whim, Black Mask was still new to me as a company and I had never heard of the creators either.I was captivated not only by the art, but the writing and overall design of the book. The characters not only match their environment, but they feel like real people with history. This series is no different, I love Science Fiction and you can tell that Visaggio does as well. With lots of robots, futuristic weapons, insane vehicles (Kim's space van), and fictional careers. Quantum Teens should be on your read if you're into any of that, and I can't wait to see who or what they pull out of time. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - C.K. Stewart Feb 21, 2017

    Quantum Teens Are Go #1 is a weird and fun book, and this week's debut hints that it may be a tale about family loss and transition as much as it is about punk rock teens who mess around with theoretical physics in their spare time. Visaggio and Donovan's storytelling is impressively subtle despite its bombastic premise, giving its diverse cast a compelling level of depth in this debut issue. They're kick ass kids with a penchant for mad science and murky motivations, and the questionable judgment of your average teen. The book ends with a bang as they throw the switch on their finished product " and the looming question of whether their youthful exuberance will lead them to meddle with time to fix their tumultuous home lives makes Quantum Teens Are Go a series to follow for now.

    Comic Crusaders - Dylan Hicks Feb 15, 2017

    Altogether, this issue was very fun to read. Both the art and the writing have me excited for the next issue. They somehow managed to take a watercolored, self-published, indie book with the finish of the mainstream, big budget, comic. I am definitely giving Quantum Teens Are a Go a buy, and if you cannot afford it now at least get the trade once it is out. Easily 4 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield Jan 12, 2017

    Quantum Teens Are Go #1 is a tactfully balanced adventure with a punk aesthetic that harkens back to a 80s "kids do crazy science and it works because it just does" rationalization. And that's fun as hell. It isn't mindlessly frantic by any stretch; instead at its core is a relatable experience of feeling maladroit in one world but assuredly comfortable with who you really are in the one that matters most. All that's needed is a way to take control of all of it. Don't just fight the future, make the future. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Stefania Rudd Feb 22, 2017

    Quantum Teens Are Go is off to a great start. The premise is solid, the art is scuzzy perfection, and the possibilities are endless. And true to its characters, the book is anchored by the strength of two kids doing something completely new. Something completely daring. Nat and Sumesh. Visaggio and Donovan. All of them are the future. Read Full Review

    Overall, I can see what Visaggio and Donovan were shooting for, and I think they have a pretty okay start here. This issue, though, is just a little bit too rough for me to really be enthusiastic about it. Hopefully issue 2 will have a bit more editing with tighter art that will help pull readers into a story that I think could end up being neat. Read Full Review

    I may seem very critical of quantum teams are go but I'll give this title a pass for now because it's only issue #1 and there is so much of the story that hasn't been told yet and I am hoping that as the story progresses the quality of this book progresses as well. Read Full Review
