EVERYTHING is a gleaming new mega-department store which arrives to extraordinary thrill-and rapidly escalates to inexplicable mania in the small town of Holland, Michigan.

When random hellish fires and unshakable psychic disturbances start to overtake the community, a few-like depressive out-of-towner Lori and a suspicious local named Rick-begin to suspect EVERYTHING and its catalog-perfect manger, Shirley.

Who-or what-exactly is in charge here . . . and what insidious plans are in store?

From Christopher Cantwell, acclaimed writer of She Could Fly and co-creator of AMC;s Halt and Catch Fire, and celebrated artist more

    Comics Bookcase - Gabe Gonzalez Jun 4, 2020

    This is a story only Cantwell and I.N.J Culbard can tell, complete with a uniquely retro feel and intriguing commentary on values and capitalism. The story hits its stride after its first issues, raising interesting questions about where it (and all of us) go from here. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Arpad Okay Aug 29, 2019

    Everything is haunted, disturbing, confusing, compelling. It is the inkling of a bigger story that demands time and pause. It is By the Pricking of My Thumbs: The Floppy. The little details, the dreamy lapses into the supernatural, are best when you're savoring this story. Everything eschews the model of the serial in favor of mystique while still presenting a beguiling debut. Read Full Review

    There's not much in the way of progressing the story forward beyond getting that sensation across, but if it works on you you'll probably be looking out for the next issue. Though, if you've seen that one episode of South Park about the Wal-Mart, you probably already know where this is going. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Sep 3, 2019

    When taken as a whole, Everything #1sets up its story with all the classic hallmarks of an eerie tale. From the quiet unsuspecting town to the weird outsider that has to be up to something, it feels like Everything #1 has a lot of potential. Especially if the creative team can establish their characters going forward as well as they have established their story's setting. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ingrid Lind-Jahn Sep 8, 2019

    There's a lot going on in Everything #1, and we've just scratched the surface. The book has some momentum, as though all the different threads that have been started are already intertwined and are being pulled deeper into whatever is going on. It's not a bad way to kick things off, although there are moments that still feel a little confusing. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Pashtrik Maloki Sep 11, 2019

    As a standalone issue, it's not that impressive. There's not much going on in it, honestly. I do, however, feel like the series will get better as the story moves forward. But that just makes me wonder one thing - why didn't they just do a graphic novel? Read Full Review
