    NVRLND is a series I will be watching with great anticipation. The premiere issue delivered much more than I expected, which was quite a pleasant surprise, and I was impressed with the overall product. The story and adult themes/suggested material (or as I like to call it, fun) shown inthis issue make this series tell a captivating tale, the characters created are intriguing, and the creative team shows that they are in sync with one another. That right there should bring this series great success. IfSalyers and Mulick continue to build on their dark, underground world, delve deeper into each character's backstory, and Luiz continues to bring out quality depictions of this world, this series may have hope beyond its planned four issue run.

    I, like many others probably felt, wasn't terribly excited when I heard about this book, mainly because it sounded like treading old water. But after the recommendation from the local comic shop owner, I gaveit a shot and loved it. This book should be something you give a try, if only for the first issue. That's all it took me to get hooked. Read Full Review

    The first issue of NVRLND does an excellent job of setting things up with all of the familiar characters we know, but at the same time giving each enough of a unique spin to make it all feel original. I'll admit I rolled my eyes when I heard that it was another take on Peter Pan, but having read the first issue, I'm looking forward to see what comes next. Read Full Review

    The art is outstanding I would even go as far as to say flawless.The story is interesting, a somewhat murder mystery and is fast paced for a first issue while still taking the time to introduce all the players, this is a four issue mini series so the story will be compact and quick.451 hasyet to release a title I've not loved, if you've not checked out their other titles Humbug and Self Storage they are fantastic! This gets a solid 4 stars. Read Full Review

    NVRLND is a punk noir series that transforms a classic story into something totally new and entertaining. I'm looking forward to seeing where the story will go from here and how much darker the series can get. There are a few bumps, but it is worth the read if you want to check out something that is off the beaten trail in term of comics! Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Garcia Aug 11, 2016

    In the end, "NVRLND" #1 is a bit of a mess. Although the story doesn't do anything interesting with the Peter Pan characters except transport them to modern day Hollywood, it's fun seeing how Salyers, Molick, and Leiz incorporate them into this world. However, it's never as exciting as it should or as interesting as it could be, at least for this introduction. Read Full Review
