    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Aug 13, 2020

    The story being told here is incredible. One of the best coming of age stories ever, an incredible exploration of that moment of becoming an adult, of facing the trauma’s that have defined you and moving past them. It’s also a wonderful exploration of the dangers of teenage emotions, and a clever look at a what if scenario of teens having more power. The art and colours have been as incredible and exciting as the story itself, and there is no doubt that this is one of the best comics in recent years. Read Full Review

    Spurrier and Wildgoose have crafted with despair, anger, and fully realized people a fantasy that works superbly on so many levels. Alienated floats in an air of supernatural disquiet and tension, at a point of reflection, mirrored in everything and everyone. Read Full Review
