When the caped heroes of the world’s safest city inexplicably turn into homicidal maniacs, no one is safe. The only rational thing to do is to get the hell out of town. If only it were that easy. A small group of terrified survivors make a desperate run for the city limits, chased by unspeakable evil!

    Comicosity - Matt Santori-Griffith Sep 16, 2014

    If nothing else, Leaving Megalopolis only begins to scratch the surface of the history and storytelling potential of this brand new world, with serious potential remaining in both the ongoing story as a whole and smaller vignettes, such as with Calafiores included solo story, Wonderboy. One hopes for opportunities for wider distribution (some comic shops took advantage of retailer offerings via the Kickstarter campaign, but Im sure those were few and far between) so more readers get to experience this brilliant universe of characters. And new stories of the same wouldnt be too shabby either. If this first volume is any indication, Simone and Calafiore both have a bright future, full of the guts and glory weve all come to love from them, in creator-owned comics. The sooner we get to see that future, the better. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Tyler Sewell Sep 17, 2014

    Quite. The novel presents a unique perspective for a situation never before shown in such magnitude. The characters are realistic and easy to connect with emotionally. It's a very grim tale that expands past the superficiality of a superhero story, but still references the magic that comic book heroes contribute to our lives. Leaving Megalopolis is definitely a must read. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Dec 3, 2013

    There are some strengths to be found here, notably some of the ideas and the art in general, yet the executions of some of them, combined with a certain lack of information creates a very uneven read that is in the middle between satisfying and disappointing. A nice effort, but not something I'd heartily recommend to fans of Gail Simone. Read Full Review

    Gore, violent, heart-breaking, heart-warming, dangerous... and hilarious at times. A great Simone project.
