    The Comic Addiction - Chris Partin May 11, 2009

    The Unknown is a 4-issue miniseries which I think is good for this story and for readers. I think starting things out with a confine story and doing it in a manageable set of issues helps everyone out because it won’t be a long drawn out story. Things are set up in this issue and we have three more issues to get this case solved. From the looks of things, Catherine already has a lot figured out and that kind of pacing is going to help readers get into this story and hang on for the remaining issues. I’m on board with the hopes we’ll see more in the future. Read Full Review

    Overall, not much happens in this issue. It starts up a story line about quantum teleportation and does so in a convincing way. I am interested to see where the story leads and what key themes Waid is going to explore. Read Full Review

    "Unknown" #1 may not lay out the complete concept of the series, but it's a solid start that ends with an intriguing mystery. What Waid and Oosterveer do so well here is establish the two lead characters, allowing the rest of this series to show how they tackle the mystery of what lies beyond this life. Read Full Review
