    Comic Crusaders - Bryan Spaulding Dec 13, 2017

    I truly want to focus on what this comic is. Brilliant Trash is a fresh approach to tech driven Sci-Fi at its best. The concept of these sim-cells, which have the ability to turn people into Gods, as long as they're willing to trade days off their lives for the privilege, challenges the reader to question what they would do if presented with this choice. If given the opportunity, what would you do? Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 13, 2017

    Brilliant Trash jumps around a lot and has a lot of things going on. There's a lot of exposition here but it doesn't feel like it really reveals anything. I'm still trying to get a handle on this world design with what it's about and how it works but I'm feeling more like Kennedy than anything else, being thrust from situation to situation in crazy ways and unable to get my bearings. Seeley's a strong writer to be sure and I'm hopeful that things will even out so that I can really connect with it, especially as I want to enjoy it thanks to Petraites' artwork as there's a lot to like here. But there's something about the structure and the lack of enough foundation for me to latch onto that's making it rough to get into. Read Full Review

    Despite the issues with characters and motivation, the world of Brilliant Trash is certainly interesting enough to warrant checking out. Plus, Seeley, Petraites, and Lesko put together quite the world here, and its easy to get sucked into it. I can recommend this one, and you should give it a chance. Read Full Review

    The first issue of this title really bowled me over. The concept was intriguing and distilled nicely. This issue then delves deep into the nitty gritty and for me it lost something by way of clarity. While I could follow the first issue, this seemed to plunge into a level of detail that left me a bit confused as to the characters aims and objectives. That said, the title at least has depth, and although this issue wasn't as thrilling as the last issue it did enough to keep me interested and I'll definitely come back for the next issue to see how things develop.

    I still see a lot of potential in the book and while my initial reaction wasn't the greatest, I'm liking Brilliant Trash the more I read. I'm looking forward to the next issue and hope they slow down a bit and answer the questions that any reader of this book is going to have. Read Full Review
