    Doom Rocket - Arpad Okay Jul 10, 2018

    David Aja bringing his heart-stoppingly stark aesthetic to the page in high-relief black and white. His gorgeous, confident linework is launched into utter greatness with layers of Zip-A-Tone texture everywhere and monochrome faded sage color plates. Less is more with Aja, and The Seeds can be barren, it can be cluttered, but it is always the most. Add to this visual mirrors, optical illusions that become thematic parallels. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Jul 12, 2018

    Every now and again, a comic comes along that grabs your attention and simply refuses to let go, and THE SEEDS is a perfect example of that. It isnt flashy and it doesnt lean too heavy on the broader aspects of its premise, but theres something truly mesmerising about the way Nocenti and Aja work together seamlessly here to bring this fully-realised, utterly captivating world to life. A masterclass in precision and understatement, THE SEEDS is a new series you need to add to your pull list as soon as possible. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lewis Ross Jul 9, 2018

    All in all, I'd definitely recommend The Seeds. Whilst I'm sure it won't be everybody's cup of tea, I'd think those that will enjoy it will find a lot to love. If you're starting to feel a bit of superhero fatigue, or alternatively if you just enjoy your stories on the experimental side, I think The Seeds is well worth a look. I also feel it's worth mentioning that even though this issue might feel a little slow in places,Nocentiis clearly building towards something. It would seem the future of the series willlive or die based on its second issue, but I'm feeling optimistic. Read Full Review
