    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Dec 16, 2020

    As with all comic adaptations like this, The Expanse #1 is worth the read for the extra content that you aren't going to get in the show. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Rob Lake Dec 23, 2020

    Overall this opening issue works pretty well. Bechko's writing has captured both the spirit and characters of the show incredibly well. So far the plot pulls you into the political landscape of the Expanse universe, and everything these politics are connected to. It's a faithful recreation of the setting, and as such made me want to re-watch Season 4 again. Fans of the show will enjoy what's on offer here and will lap up the extra detail that's given.

    In some respects I wish I had re-watched the last series of The Expanse before heading into this as it took me a little while to fully get into the swing of things. Its a faithful recreation of the setting, and as a short run, its going to be something that viewers or readers, established and new, will want to consider adding to their pull list.

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Dec 16, 2020

    So, when all is said and done, The Expanse #1 delivers a character-driven narrative that is lost on any that arent familiar with the wider story. Whether or not it even fits well into that wider story, I cannot say. But those who are big into the franchise are the only ones who might get what this story is trying to deliver. Read Full Review
