After defeating the evil dictator De Nomolos in Bogus Journey in 1995, things aren't looking as excellent as they should for either Bill and Ted or Wyld Stallyns. There's tension in the band and worry at home. Bill and Ted's obsessiveness with writing the one song to bring peace to the world is affecting their playing and their relationships with their families. The band is losing favor with fans and the future isn't shaping up as they were all led to believe it would from past (and future) events. Desperate for a solution Bill and Ted burst in to announce their great idea to revive the band's fortunes: A world tour to spread the love-and the more

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Sep 9, 2020

    In short, this is a fantastic looking comic, with colorful, animated art that seems to jump off the page and a spirited story. If you're a Bill & Ted fan, you'll want to pick this one up. It is most excellent and non-bogus. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Sep 10, 2020

    The art and colors are perfectly suited to the heart and humor we want from these heroes. Every page overflows with personality and joy. Here's hoping that Dorkin and Langridge can continue the excellent momentum of this first issue and give us a story to unite the world. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Sep 7, 2020

    Were lucky enough to have Roger Langridge the artist on this title, and hes about the best choice that I can think of to illustrate this book. Hes got that awesome style where theres a lot going on in the background, but it never ever distracts your eyes from whats important. The characters are all portrayed as they should be, without exception and this is just another time when Langridge proves himself to be an artist that doesnt work enough. Read Full Review

    It's fun, silly, low stakes, and charming the whole way through, which will surely excite younger readers about the characters and add layers to the well-known heroes for more passionate devotees Read Full Review

    I would recommend this if you are a fan of the original movies or even if you only know Keanu Reeves from the Matrix and John Wick movies and want to see him in something different. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 9, 2020

    Bill and Ted Are Doomed is a perfectly fun, bubbly, and visually endearing Bill and Ted comic. Superfans will need it, fans of the movies will respect how accurate it is to the source material and how it ties into the narrative, but if you're not already a fan of the series, you can pass on this one. I'm holding out on reading more though since the story in second issues can make a series totally excellent. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Brandon Carlisle Sep 19, 2020

    Bill and Ted are faced with the pressure of writing a song to unite the world, and they aren't having as much success as they hoped. They are determined to make it happen, and they are joined by all of the best characters from the classic films. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 9, 2020

    Roger Langridge gives the art a retro feel that is indicative of the time the story takes place in. It is fun, light and designed to match the tone of the story. If the story were more dynamic and interesting, the art would feel welcoming. Unfortunately, it feels flat and lifeless because of the story. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Aug 29, 2020

    Fun, frolics, and plenty of gags. This Bill and Ted comic has all the fan favourite characters and a very familiar story-line. A prime example of entertainment for entertainments sake and will definitely pass 15 minutes, but probably not a keeper. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Adam Brown Sep 11, 2020

    The main bulk of the story is set in San Dimas 2000, almost ten years after that battle of the bands which saw the triumphant victory of the Wlyd Stallyns. Weve had the tour and the albums, the fame and the money, but now the group are effectively washed up and our heroes are struggling to come up with their next big hit. Despite the help of Station, Death, and their kids, things are on a downward spiral to irrelevance with once huge stadium tours being replaced with disaffected viewers looking for something new.
