When the Big One dropped on their house in 1957 the Cold War turned hot for the McClean family. Forced to contend with the literal fallout in a Wisconsin suffering from nuclear winter, where almost all civilization has been wiped from the map, the McCleans now have to wonder, is the year still 1957, or has something more shocking happened?

    Nuclear Family takes a hard left in chapter two. Things get delightfully weird, as advertised. Blast From The Past meets The Red Menacein this funky little Breakfast At Twilight adaptation. Read Full Review

    Nuclear Family definitely had my interest with the first issue and this one only heightens that. Phillips has me really curious which route they're pursuing here and where they want to take it because, having read novels like it, it can go in so many ways. Shasteen's artwork and Mettler's color design just takes this to a whole other level – to the point where this should be a coffee-table-sized hardcover book release with heavy quality glossy paper to deliver the right feel for it. I'm excited to see where it intends to go next and what uncertainties will change direction on it because it's got so much possibility. Read Full Review

    Nuclear Family weaves a compelling mystery, and while it has yet to shatter any new ground as of yet, it makes for an intricate story structure that helps hold interest. Read Full Review
