WHY WE LOVE IT: Brian Joines' story is one of wit, originality, and heart, complemented by imaginative and loveable art by Bachan.
WHY YOU WILL LOVE IT: Big action and bigger fun in the vein of Men in Black and Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, with a dash of Chew.
WHAT IT'S ABOUT: Ever try to wrangle an illiterate, 30-foot tall rock monster away from his 5-year-old best friend? Or calm down a 400 pound muscle-man rag-doll during her daily temper-tantrum? For Dave and Terry, it's all in a day's work. As agents for I.M.A.G.I.N.E., they are responsible for keeping your imaginary friends in-line ... Little do they know that six-year-old Elliot and his best bear-friend, Furdlgurr, are about to be entangled in a plan to change everything!

    Comicosity - John Ernenputsch Oct 20, 2013

    After reading this issue I am eager to see what Joines and Bachan come up with next, in terms of both plot and crazy awesome new figments, as the book quickly established itself as one of the most unique, imaginative books on the racks. Even though most of the issue was devoted to introducing characters and establishing the rules of the world, IMAGINE Agents #1was a great read that can be enjoyed by the entire family, and is one of the most entertaining debut issues of the year. If you remember what it was like to be a kid, and still hold onto the memories of having an imaginary friend that you wished was real then this book is for you. If you have a kid who enjoys comic books then this book is for both of you. Finally, if you are just looking for a fun comic book then this book is for you. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Jake Tanner Oct 24, 2013

    Don't make the same mistake I did and brush off titles just because of who publishes it. This book deserves to be talked about and read by anyone who enjoys a genuinely fun and sincere story. I plan on recommending it to absolutely anyone who will listen to me, so if you're reading this, go buy a copy or download it on Comixology now!4.5 out of 5 nerds Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Oct 18, 2013

    In "Imagine Agents", the men in black go from place to place managing the imaginary friends and impossible creatures that seem to exist only in the minds of children. What lies behind that deceptively simple concept is a story that can go from being goofy and over-the-top on one page, to breaking your heart on the next page. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Chris Wilson Oct 23, 2013

    I.M.A.G.I.N.E. Agents #1 started weak, looking like a M.I.B. clone, but threw in enough original ideas to make it stand on its own. Brian Jones has created a book with fun, humor and childlike innocence that comes with imaginary friends. Add on wonderful art by Bachan, Ruth Redmond's coloring and you get a standout comic. It's another great book from Boom! Studios that provides a nice alternative to guys and gals in tights. As long as the original ideas continue, and the M.I.B. similarities fade, I'll be sticking around. Read Full Review
