It's 1984, and Judith is your typical 17 year old. She chain smokes, cuts class, sells her tampons to perverts, and she just might be the last sane woman left on the planet. When a third-rate cosmetics company creates a pheromone that turns women into crazed man-eaters, the world dives into chaos. Judith must break her little brother out of juvie, all the while dodging rabid women and the men who hunt them. Already a proven survivor, she picks up some interesting strays along the way and kicks some serious zombie ass! Judith is Alpha Girl!

    This is a really fun book with some very pretty art. While it's not a series I would recommend for kids due to the language and the insinuation of some drug use, it's still a solid, entertaining book. Judith''s snarky, witty characterization makes her an interesting character to follow as she narrates her journey so far. The final pages of this issue will definitely leave you wanting more. A seriously fun, creator owned book. Looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 5, 2012

    The creators of this book have managed to do something that a lot of first issues don't: Imbue their creations with character and life, and even thought Judith/Alpha Girl doesn't do a lot in this issue, I was interested enough to want to read more of her story. The fact that the end of the world is played with sardonic humor appeals to me, as does the deceptively simple art style. Alpha Girl #1 is a fun start to what could be a very interesting story, and even with a few disjointed transitions, tells the beginning of a story that I want to hear more of, earning 4 out of 5 stars overall for clear storytelling and striking character design. I'm liking what this seems to want to become, and will be back next issue for more... Read Full Review

    Overall, the art is very good and the premise promises entertainment but the second issue needs more Alpha Girl, more comedy, more darkness and some proper zombie action. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Feb 7, 2012

    A funny comic with some nice cartoony art. The humor isn't really my style, but I know a lot of people will problem enjoy it. The more problematic issue was that the story spent more time on less interesting things instead of showing us the protagonist (who has potential). That's the type of thing that can be address in later issues if folks stick with it. I'm dropping this for now, but could be talked into reading future issues if the story-telling structure improves. Not a bad comic, but (as I said) this comics landscape is SOOOO crowded that there is no call for reading books that don't have a spark of excellence or that stumble in certain areas.

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Elkin Jan 24, 2012

    It's not that I hated Alpha Girl #1 -- it just really didn't do anything for me. If I want to read this type of book, I'd much rather be reading Chew or Skullkickers, which are both far more successful than Alpha Girl #1 is in combining action and humor. Still, Image seems to be behind this title and they've been doing pretty well lately, so maybe they know more than I. Read Full Review
