WHY WE LOVE IT: Ever wonder what's behind that "No Trespassing" sign? We do! Co-creators André Sirangelo and Gabriel Iumazark takes us deep into the renegade world of urbEx (urban exploration). Throw in a decades-old conspiracy involving vaudeville magicians and occult spiritualists and you've got us hooked.

WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: The cunning, daredevil urbEx members of Backbone will win you over as the ragtag, Ocean's Eleven-style crew of the sewers and abandoned warehouses. Iumazark's Brazilian/Japanesefusion indie art style brings edgy energy to every dark corner. And fans of THIEF OF THIEVES and the film NOW YOU SEE ME will find comparisons to entice them.

    When I read a novel from Archaia, The Last Broadcast is exactly what I have come to expect. The story from the very opening builds intrigue and mystery with nuance and great writing. The art is well just that, a work of art. I have set a really high bar in my head when it comes to Archaia because they continue to publish some of the most beautiful and well written graphic novels in the industry. The Last Broadcast is exactly what I think of when I think Archaia. This is how to make comic books. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White May 22, 2014

    With two meaty topics duelling for our attention, this first issue is a substantial read. It's the nuanced execution of it all that keeps the material engaging, evoking a mystery without drawing us into it yet. A gorgeous comic with atmosphere to spare, reading “The Last Broadcast” feels like trespassing in all the right ways. Read Full Review

    Andre Sirangelo crafts a narrative that spans a few different places in time and it never once gets confusing. Moreover, each part of the story is adequately introduced so that there's enough of a reason to come back for issue #2. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli May 25, 2014

    The Last Broadcast is a bold mini-series filled with different ideas and wide-open directions for the plot. The opening issue does a terrific job of bringing the plot to the reader while rolling out the key characters. Without this balance the opening issue wouldn't have been able to grab the reader in the same way this comic book does. I definitely recommend checking this book out. The mini-series has the makings of a classic. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Cole Kennedy May 22, 2014

    The Last Broadcast #1 introduced an interesting enough premises that is sure to bring more questions than answers, and with six issues left in the mini-series, Sirangelo has plenty of time to elaborate on the mysteries he's created. The first issue has done its job in that it leaves the reader wanting more, which will most likely cause them to pick up the next one and read on. As two creators who aren't currently credited with much in the comics business, Sirangelo and Iumazark have created a good first installment to a series that has plenty of promise and looks to only get more engaging as the story progresses.
