What's to Love: It's time again to be excellent to each other! We showed just how much we love Bill & Ted with 2015's Bill & Ted's Most Triumphant Return, and since 2016 is the 25th anniversary of Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, why not celebrate with a new mini-series that sends the lovable duo to Hell? Plus, all Subscription covers in this mini-series will feature a unique Wyld Stallyns album cover created by some of the industry's top talents!

What It Is: Bill & Ted are back for a brand-new miniseries, this time with the Imagine Agents team of Brian Joines and Bachan at the helm. It's time to get the band back together! Bill & Ted and the Princesses will have to reunite with some historic friends to knock down the Devil's door and get their friend Death back. With the help of Rufus, Billy the Kid, Joan of Arc, and more, this is the showdown that will rock the supernatural world. History vs. Hell. Too bad Hell has some surprises up its sleeve...

    There really isn't a lot more to be said without spoiling things so to sum up in one word; Bill and Ted Go To Hell is EXCELLENT! Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - James Johnston Feb 18, 2016

    “Bill & Ted Go To Hell” is a perfect tribute to the classic movie franchise and a treat for anyone who loves pre-Crisis Keanu Reeves. It follows a completely deranged sense of logic, but it's an insanity that works perfectly for a follow-up to a movie about two teens, their princess wives, and their TARDIS. Read Full Review

    This is really a very silly and fun issue. There are some really dramatic moments that help balance out the humorous and histrionic plot. I’m stoked to see how this adventure goes. There are elements of horror in it, too, so I’m looking forward to any and all plot twists that happen in Hell. For any Bill & Ted fan, this is most definitely a must-read series. Read Full Review

    Bill and Ted Go To Hell #1 is off to a great start, it shows everything we love about Bill and Ted.. and Elizabeth, and Joanna, and the good guy Robot Bill and Ted, and some righteous history characters, and some not so awesome ones, and the greatest comedian of the generation before ours.

    If you enjoyed BOOM!'s last offering, then this will be right up your alley. Heck, if you liked Bill & Ted at all, this is something you should check out. Sure, there's a few problems with a lot of rehashing from the movies and the last volume, but overall, this ends up being a really fun read and the issue has a great hook to keep the reader invested.

    This was a good start of the next Bill & Ted story.  Even those who may find it a bit too redundant will see something to smile about and now that everyone is on the same page, hopefully next issue hits the ground running.  Brian Joines does an "excellent" job making everything accurate and believable while Bachan and Jeremy Lawson do the same with the art.  It all comes together to give fans a great book to read while waiting for the next rumor of a part three to hit the Internet.

    I've been a fan of Bill and Ted since I was young, and knowing that there's comics of the franchise (and possibly a third movie on the way) made me jump for joy, especially when I was tasked with reviewing the new mini-series from one of my favorite publishers. A magnificent comic, that builds on the original world and doesn't talk down to newcomers to the Bill and Ted mythos. 3.5 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    If this latest adventure is going to succeed, it's going to have to rely on more than nostalgia to do so. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Feb 16, 2016

    Bill and Ted Go to Hell #1 is very much an introductory issue, and as such it's hard to fully get a sense of how good this really is. Given the cinematic leaning like watching the first 20 minutes of a film, and all the fun is going to be in watching Bill and Ted interact with the visions and mischief that will find them in the afterworld. Nevertheless, if you enjoyed the previous Bill and Ted's Most Triumphant Return series and can't wait around for Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves to star in a new film, then you could do a lot worse than this.
