    A beautifully drawn and deeply evocative story, 'Luna' is a mature book with an interesting tone and atmosphere, one that I want to see continue to be explored. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Adam Brown Feb 4, 2021

    I was upfront in saying that I didnt instantly click with Luna, but I think part of that was not appreciating what I was in for. Bound up in this issue are engaging characters, even though they might not necessarily be likeable, and that early drip drip of mystery which is blown wide open by the last panel. For all the colour, this is a well-wrought dark adult fantasy which will gnaw and burrow its way into your imagination. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Feb 3, 2021

    When all is said and done, Luna #1 delivers a curious start to its story. It delivers enough hints at what may be happening so readers will not feel lost while maintaining the air of mystery the book clearly wants to have. With the story closing on a fairly disturbing note, the book leaves readers with a harshly contrasting feeling to what it presents for most of its duration. Making this ending something striking.

    Sequential Planet - Alexander Cole Feb 21, 2021

    Luna's first issue serves up a good enough story to get readers interested in seeing more but the characters it introduces are lacking in depth. The lettering is strong throughout and the narrative boxes are visual treats. Speaking of visuals, the art in the book is utterly gorgeous. It's similar to Maria Llovet's past work so if you're a fan of this then you'll be pleased with Luna. I'd say the art is by far the strong point of the issue but it's a good comic overall.

    Multiversity Comics - Christa Harader Feb 4, 2021

    Luna #1 dazzles with lush art and narrative promise, but some dialogue and narration is inconsistent enough to detract from a seamless, trippy experience. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Patrick Cavanaugh Feb 3, 2021

    Devout fans of Llovet will surely savor every panel, as each illustration offers everything readers love about her work, but newcomers might be tougher to win over with the book's ambling narrative. Read Full Review
