Simon Spurrier ( The Spire, Godshaper ) and Matias Bergara ( Cannibal, Supergirl ) present a broken fantasy world that's perfect for fans of Mad Max and The Lord of the Rings.
In the aftermath of an apocalypse which wiped out nearly all magic from a once-wondrous fantasy world, a former bard named Hum (a man of few words, so nicknamed because his standard reply is hmh) seeks a way to save the soul of his wife with nothing but a foul-tempered mutant unicorn and his wits to protect him...but is unwillingly drawn into a brutal power struggle which will decide forever who rules the Weird Wasteland.
Oversized first issue, with 40 pag more

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 4, 2018

    Coda #1 invites you to a cruel and decaying world with a cynical and duplicitous hero. That said, Sir Hum is compelling and interesting, and the world seems like it could only get more engrossing from here. Simon Spurrier and Matias Bergara knocked it out of the park with this comic. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - christopher scott author May 2, 2018

    This first issue is fantastic creating a world that is begging to be explored and characters that make it entertaining. There's a lots of fantasy out there but this debut manages to find more than enough that feels new and unique to make it stand out from the pack. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt May 2, 2018

    This was a really intriguing start to a new series. At first I didn't think I was going to enjoy it (I actually put it down two pages in for a break before I continued), but once I got into the swing of things I found myself really invested in the world being developed here. I was absolutely shocked and horrified by the end revelation, which means they did their job right. I wonder how much of the rest of the world is just as twisted as that. Read Full Review

    Matias Bergara brings it all together with a perfect balance of the fantastical and ugly, a sensibility revealed in a cursing, fighting Pentacorn that will likely have readers begging for more. Read Full Review

    Nerdophiles - Kylee Sills May 16, 2018

    Honestly, I'm not attached to Hum so much as I am attached to the world being built with Coda. As jaded and disengaged as the main character is, I found myself alight with interest exploring this new world that the creative team has crafted. Like the rest of these fantasy characters, I'm crying out for more magic in the upcoming issues. Be sure to read through to the end of this oversized first issue for that gut-swooping hook that will definitely have readers eagerly awaiting more. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - May 4, 2018

    Going into this title with high hopes, I have to say that it left me quite flat and a bit disappointed. The art is not without its charms after a degree of acclimatization. The writing, however, was the real let down. While the immersive experience approach can be a neat trick at times in comic book writing, I just felt that this book expected too much of the reader. For me, it was like getting tossed into the deep end of a swimming pool without ever having had swimming lessons. Not pleasant, and I'm not inclined to come back for more. Read Full Review
