    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Jun 2, 2021

    EVERFROST #1 is a remarkably well executed debut issue that serves up a perfect blend of dystopian fantasy Sci-Fi with a heavy dollop of human drama threaded through it's center laced in the tragedy of a world in turmoil and decline. Highly recommended to fans of esoteric Sci-Fi Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Apr 8, 2021

    I am a huge fan of both Lindsay and Kivela; I love how neither are just settling as creators. Instead they continue to push their talent forward with stories that feel as diverse as any of the big indie publishers output. For a book that mixes scope of environment with the scope of human emotions, Everfrost, through Lindsay and Kivela, surely delivers. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Apr 19, 2021

    There is a lot to digest within the twenty-five pages of this first issue and it comes at the reader rapidly, but it's invigorating and engaging and leaves the reader with a great number of intriguing questions. Every page is a delicious treat that leaves one craving more as this bizarre and deadly and strange new world is developed panel by panel. Read Full Review

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Jun 7, 2021

    'Everfrost' #1 is a smart, ambitious, sci-fi fantasy that hits the ground running. Lindsay plunges readers in the middle of a war as Val tries to escape the planet altogether. One talking monkey and the return of her dead son complicate things. All the elements are here for one immersive adventure told with confidence and style as the creative team knows where its going and want readers to come along. It's a trip worth taking.   Read Full Review

    Caffeinated Critique - James Stone May 31, 2021

    Black Mask Comics have had a few good comics recently but I feel Everfrost could become their first major series. Packed full of world building and interesting characters the first issue of this 4 series arc feels like something special. There is a lot to read and a lot to take it but once people give this a chance I think it will hook many people to come back for issue #2. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jun 2, 2021

    Everfrost #1 is an interesting comic. It'd likely have been stronger focused in on Van Louise and her attempt to escape. But, it decides to show us a bit more of the world taking the focus all over. It's one that has fantastic concepts. Now, if we could get a bit more of each. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Adam Brown May 24, 2021

    Ive re-read this issue a couple of times now and each time I am surprised by the page count. It feels like there is so much more here than what can be contained in such a slim offering. The team have presented an evocative opening which asks more than it answers. With so much going on, Im still a little bamboozled, and whilst it requires a bit of work, Everfrost is a rewarding read. Im hopeful that such a short arc is enough time to expound on the ideas presented here, as with so much going on, its difficult to tell from this issue how much ground well cover. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Gonzalo M Apr 19, 2021

    All in all, this issue was certainly interesting, but a lot of the excitement about a new first issue was quickly replaced with confusion and trying to find my footing in this new world. This series has great potential, that is certain, but currently, the first issue felt like a misfire. I will definitely be checking back in with this series in hopes that I may eat my own words.
