Following from AHOY's widely-read Free Comic Book Day edition, this prequel to The Wrong Earth follows gritty vigilante The Dragonfly and his innocent, campy counterpart Dragonflyman, before they became trapped on each other's Earths! Can two versions of the satanic Devil-Man corrupt both of their souls? EXTRA: Prose fiction and fact, beautifully illustrated.

    Tom Peyer is doing the best work of his career over at Ahoy Comics. His writing is vital in a way that it never was before this. Peter Krause does a great job on the art as well. This is a great start to the book. I can't wait to see where the creative team takes us from here! Read Full Review

    If you loved THE WRONG EARTH and are looking for more stories about Dragonfly and Dragonflyman, this is the series for you. Comic fans need to add this to your pull list today. If you love the classic Batman 66' feel as well as the gritty Dark Knight aura, Peyer still brings the heat on both through a slightly different lense which makes this comic well worth the cover price. Peyer has opened up two great new worlds that this reviewer is ready to explore. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Nov 11, 2019

    Dragonfly & Dragonflyman #1 is a pretty fun entry from AHOY Comics. It was a fun play on the alternate Earths and the Batman and Robin characters. I am not sure how well this will play out over multiple issues. But for one issue this was a fun story. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Evan Valentine Nov 6, 2019

    The premise of this story is essentially "what if Adam West's Batman and Frank Miller's Batman switched places" and while this issue does an adequate job of taking us into those two worlds, it misses out on the humor of the original series. Read Full Review

    I read the trade paperback for The Wrong Earth and immediately sought this book out. This series takes place before the events of Wrong Earth which was a initially disappointing but it's great to read more about these characters regardless.
    The comic follows the adventures of Dragonfly (on Earth-Omega) and Dragonflyman (on Earth-Alpha) as they attempt to stop their own earth's version of a villain called "Devil Man". The plot of the two heroes parallel each other and it's interesting to see how they end up in similar circumstances despite their stark differences. I enjoyed seeing how the fun and ridiculous world of Dragonflyman contrasted with the dark and grim world of Dragonfly and I can't wait to see what happens next.
