Celebrity-socialite Reno Selleti doesn't believe in very much beyond Instagram comments, hipster drugs, and the flash of paparazzi cameras, so when a friend invites her to an EYES WIDE SHUT-type party she goes along mostly for the lulz. But the joke doesn't feel as funny when she realizes it's an actual occult ritual, and suddenly she's seeing things... Horrifying apparitions trying to warn her. "RUN." Like Darren Aronofsky remaking DRAG ME TO HELL, There's Nothing There is a stylish & hallucinatory thriller about losing yourself in the bright lights and finding yourself at rock bottom. By your new favorite artist Maria Llovet and Patr more

    Theres Nothing There #1 is eerily comfortable making you uncomfortable. The reality of how often we make our lives nothing more than veneer, or worse, how we strive for this, is laid bare while reflecting against occultist imagery. Just how much it ultimately has to say isnt clear, but what Theres Nothing There #1 introduces is nothing short of enticing. Kindlon, Llovet, and Campbell are a formidable creative team that craft an unnerving yet breathtakingly beautiful looking book that dares to peel back the faade and ask whats underneath.

    Newsarama - Joey Edsall Apr 25, 2017

    Overall, There's Nothing There #1 is a strong opening act of a confident story. While some of the characters don't feel completely fleshed out as of yet and there seems to be a holding back of social commentary, the queasy and pervasive dread throughout the issue and the stellar art make this a comic worth checking out. With three issues on the horizon, the comic does a good job of setting up its primary pieces. The mysteries at the heart of the issue will ultimately be what draws and keeps readers, and while that will be made or broken in the following issues, the artistry and skill with which everything is established makes this a genuinely exciting comic experience.

    A story that combines the spiritual, physical and material worlds as they intersect with the lives of the social bourgeois, There's Nothing There should feel as uniquely arresting as Olivier Assayas' Personal Shopper, but despite the raw sexuality, found present in similar works like The Neon Demon, this debut feels more mechanical than the orgy in Westworld.

    Overall, if you are a fan of horror, you should definitely consider giving Theres Nothing There a look. My slight reservations aside, Im definitely on board for issue two, if only find to find out exactly whats going on, whats causing these visions and just where Reno fits in. Kindlon and Llovet theres definitely something there! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Allie Bustion Apr 26, 2017

    Long story short, its going to take a bit for this series to prove its worth the time and money to pick up. Even for someone who like horror thrillers of the rich and famous. With so little to work with, its near impossible to tell if it will be worth it in the end. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Kristopher Grey May 1, 2017

    Even though Reno is a celebrity, her character still feels like any other privileged, problematic human. Humans reacting to supernatural situations they don't understand can be as exciting as a superhero story, and maybe even more relatable. Readers were given an ending that was somewhat stimulating, but still left enough anticipation to pick up the second issue. Read Full Review
