    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Jan 13, 2015

    Thus far, everything in this series has been a subtle twist on all of the other conspiracy sci-fi stories that have come before, though enough of a twist to make the entire endeavor seem to be original. The same holds true here as the characters find themselves facing something which has not been seen before, at least not is such a way, and the characters are original enough in their own way to be a draw as well. With already rumors of a television deal in the works and with the consistent quality, this is a series that fans might want to get into now, so that they can claim that they were reading it before it went mainstream.

    Comix I Read - Boris Roberto Aguilar Jan 13, 2015

    This series has a smart and well executed story that is well complimented with beautiful pictures and colours. Together, this makes for a compelling and enjoyable story. Do yourself a favour and pick this series up. We are only three issues in and your local shop may have the first two issues in. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Jan 14, 2015

    Justin Jordan has this ability to take a gazillion familiar elements and turn them into a story that feels unique, exciting, and totally fun (e.g. SPREAD, DEAD BODY ROAD, LUTHER STRODE). You can go on and on about what DEEP STATE reminds you of, but it's being handled in a way that prevents you from thinking about that while you're reading it. He's able to create interesting characters and stories and DEEP STATE is no exception, so now it's just a matter of seeing when he'll offer a really good amount of insight into this plot and the two leads. In the meantime, it's clear he has no problem making sure the series is full of thrills and even the occasional laugh. Throw in visuals that really sell the horror and sci-fi elements and you've got yet another non-superhero book that's absolutely worth reading. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - David Craig Jan 21, 2015

    To put it simply, Deep State is a lot of fun. This book is for people who want an action-packed sci-fi fix, one that perhaps doesn't have the thought-provoking moments that some indie comics go for, but does have all the entertaining thrills that are present in the best summer blockbusters. It may not be perfect " the dialogue isn't always spot-on, and the main characters still need some fleshing out " but that doesn't stop it from being a hugely entertaining read. If you're a sci-fi fan, you need to be reading this comic. Read Full Review

    GWW - Agasicles Stamas Jan 17, 2015

    Deep State does not necessarily leap off the page with tons of excitement and wonder. And in a week that is jam-packed with some pretty incredible single issues, this one is likely to go unnoticed by the mainstream crowd. This series should read very well in trades. But even if you want to jump on now just for a quick X-Files/MiB kind of fix, the story and setup leaves plenty of room for new readers to step in without needing a lot of the background from issues #1 and #2. Deep State is a nicely contained story amidst a sea of convoluted messes that populate a lot of the landscapes of DC and Marvel. While not revolutionary, it does provide a nice detour for those looking for something other than capes and tights. Sci-fi intrigue fans might want to check this one out. Read Full Review
