From the critically acclaimed writers of The Dregs comes a new horror series about body image, social media, and memory. When an entrepreneur with a god complex creates a technology that allows two minds to share one body, he doesn't anticipate the degenerative effects of long-term trials. Come Into Me is a contemporary comment on connected culture and our longing for approval in the digital age. This is a world where technology and flesh become indistinguishable, begging the question, "How much sharing is too much sharing?" Prepare yourself for the insane lovechild of The Fly and Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind.

    Comic Bastards - Garrett Hanneken Apr 12, 2018

    Come Into Me has an eccentric but believable concept and its ideas are enhanced in both the dialogue and art. If you want a unique story with undertones of horror then I suggest you pick this comic up. It is a unique story and the more I think about it the more I realize how emotionally horrifying the set up is. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Mar 21, 2018

    Come Into Me is exactly the type of dark storytelling I'm into and the plot is incredibly well done. It's a must read and I highly recommend this to any fans of dark sci-fi like the Twilight Zone and Black Mirror. I look forward to seeing exactly how far this book goes. Read Full Review

    “Cronenbergian” is an adjective that gets thrown around a lot in comic books. If a book has even a touch of psychosexual undertones or a bit of body horror, we are quick to slap the label on it just to let people known we’ve seen Videodrome once or twice. But unlike those books, Come Into Me #1 truly nails the gets-under-your-skin vibe of the auteur’s filmography and then stylishly pours it onto the pages of a comic, reveling in the dread, obsession, and character building that other books tend to ignore. The best kind of horror holds a mirror up to the world that it inhabits, and Come Into Me #1 holds that mirror uncomfortably close, and never once allows us to look away. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Mar 7, 2018

    If you read The Dreggs, you could be forgiven for assuming you know the writings of Thompson and Nadler. True both books challenge perceptions and the order of things, and even though the battle between being rich or being poor does raise its head here, it is by no means the same level as their previous work. I am a big fan of Black Mask Comics, having read quite a selection of their books, as they quietly go about carving out a niche for themselves by delivering quality products. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Feb 11, 2018

    Ultimately, while for now it feels primarily like a harsh look at the desperate nature of social interactions, the horror undertones of the story – particularly once the reader turns the final page – are definitely more than enough to make this new series stand out. Taking a long, hard look at body image and the deeply ingrained desire for approval and connection, Come Into Me is a new series that's guaranteed to get under your skin. Definitely one to keep an eye out for next month, folks. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Nick Hanover Mar 14, 2018

    Come Into Me can't possibly definitively answer these questions but in asking them it stands out as a bolder and more fulfilling sci-fi work than so many of its contemporaries, who favor examinations of human interests over what it means to be human and what it will mean to be human in a future where even our thoughts are commercialized.

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Mar 15, 2018

    Come Into Me is a disturbing read, blending body horror with technology in a way we haven't seen since The Fly. Everyone seems to agree that we're spending too much time with social media. This might just be the push you need to stay off of Facebook for a little while, as it presents a dark and scary possible future.  Writers Zac Thompson & Lonnie Nadler have made some really creepy stuff here.

    The collective work of this creative team results in an incredibly immersive piece of storytelling, one that drips with atmosphere, dread, and unease. The undeniable effectiveness of this is what makes Come Into Me #1 an issue worth checking out, and what will keep me coming back for more in the future. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Sep 26, 2018

    The beauty of this comic is how the authors explain the science fiction as a simple extension of current social media practices. Thats why the story is so relatable and captivating. Piotr Kowalski gives a plain look with rudimentary but correct renderings. The low-key factor does not hide the internal debates the characters are going through as the comic progresses. The stunted reality depicted with this visual style removes the artifice and grandiose science fiction elements and replaces it with a story that seems very real. Read Full Review
