    Comic Crusaders - Jeffrey Bracey Feb 19, 2019

    This was a great first issue a series that both honors and deconstructs comics from two different eras at the same time. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Sep 12, 2018

    AHOY promised a lot going into this debut and they have delivered a comic that feels at times more magazine than comic (in a good way). You really feel like you get a lot out of this and if this is the start, I can't wait to see what's next. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nathan Koffler Sep 12, 2018

    It also helps that the content is extremely well done, especially the main story of The Wrong Earth. It did it’s job of introducing me to new characters, a new story, and a new style and I am absolutely on board already. The extra content in the comic book magazine is quality content and shows us the amazing stuff AHOY Comics is about to unleash on us with the rest of their titles. All in all, reading through this issue was such an enjoyable experience and I recommend others pick it and spend the time with it as well. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Nov 15, 2018

    Swapping heroes takes a dark turn in this book. One will either find this incredible fun or just too dark. The five page comic is a delight and the three pager of text is weirdness one cannot stop reading. There's something for everyone in this. It will be impressive to see if the main story can beyond the tropes of the characters. I'm willing to return for more. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Aug 21, 2018

    A strong opening issue, not just for 'The Wrong Earth,' but for AHOY Comics as a whole. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Dana Folkard Sep 10, 2018

    Overall, I thought that this was a fun and jam-packed first issue from AHOY Comics. The Wrong Earth #1 is an entertaining and compelling story, and this coupled with the additional content makes for some great reading. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Clyde Hall Sep 7, 2018

    This is a lot of quality entertainment packed into a single issue. If it sets the standard for future issues, it's a steal given the cover price. If #1 comes in a special introductory size, it's a grand start to the series. Either way, it's helmed by people of amazing achievement and even greater potential as evidenced by sneak peeks at their other previews. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stacy Baugher Sep 11, 2018

    A mix of a modern comic and an old style comic magazine, Wrong Earth may be the right title to pick up if you are wanting to get on the band wagon of a promising new series early. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Aj Adejare Aug 29, 2018

    Wrong Earths Does a good job setting up the premise. The series sets up characters distinctly with mannerisms and personas that make them stand out. We know the stakes of the characters as well as the consequences of both main characters in their different perspective Worlds. The art style conveys these particular consequences as well as makes it interesting to read. Peyer certainly created a good entry point into what may be an interesting series. Read Full Review

    411Mania - RobF Sep 20, 2018

    It was wise for AHOY to base their first story around 2 veterans like Ingle and Peyer. They have the pedigree to make this work. With a little backstory this could have been an even better issue. I will be on the lookout for issue 2. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 13, 2018

    The opening issue for this series is a bit light on story and character for my tastes but it plays to the simplicity of what it wants to use as a premise well. Read Full Review

    I thought this was great. It's a good sign when you read a comic and you are bummed when it ends. I want issue 2 now. Such a cool concept to take the 'gosh, gee whiz' superhero and put him in the current style of dark, gritty comics.

    The media gaggle was agog with platitudes for newcomers Ahoy Comics. How could Ahoy possibly live up to that kind of hype?

    Well, I'm here to tell you, Ahoy did it, AND HOW!

    The Wrong Earth is amazing from cover to cover. It's better than advertised. The "comic book magazine" format is tremendous. There's stuff to read in there, in addition to the stories, which are totally BOFFO! Also love the "Golden Age" treatment on Stinger. I kept waiting for the ink to come off on my hands, but I wound up like the kid in the M&M commercial. Melts in your mouth, not in your hand!

    The only suggestion I would have is to condense the author Q&A's and gimme more STUFF!

    This start augurs well for Ahoy! Can't wait t more

    I finally have the chance to read it. And it was very nice. There is maybe too much Batman link but I hope that will be only for this first issue. I'm hooked by the end and it's what is important. It's cool too have a stinger solo story too, but I didn't like it.
    I looking forward for next issue.

    Cover - In link & Nice 2/2
    Writing - Well made. I find licked it (But too much Batman showing up in my mind). 2.5/3
    Arts - That was great. The prime story or the short stinger one. 3/3
    Feeling - Don't miss it. It's a very good comics ! 2/2

    What if Batman 66 and Frank Miller's Batman traded places? If you are intrigued by that question, and also like Golden Age superheroes, you're going to love this one. It's far more than just a great premise. The first issue really delivers.

    The backup feature starring his Dragonflyman's sidekick Stinger is worth the price of admission.

    I really want to join with others in saying how great this is. The concept of the main story is a great one, but honestly, in this first issue, it doesn't really go anywhere, but rather seems to revel in its own cleverness. Frankly, it comes across as a little bit smug. Yes, Earth Alpha did remind me of reading Batman as a child, but at the same time it was too accurate, so that I was simply irritated by it.

    I'm hoping that having set things up, the following instalments will deliver on the premise in a better way. The pastiche of the "silver age" is simply too heavy-handed in this issue: it is too knowing, while the modern Miller-esque Earth Omega gets too little attention. It all starts getting interesting at the end of the str more
