Who owns your future?

They told you the counterculture was dead. They were wrong. Welcome to the new reality.

A bold new speculative-fiction comic from the mind of writer Curt Pires, with each issue illustrated by a different brilliant artist!

The future: Art is illegal. Everything everyone ever posted online has been weaponized against them. The reign of the Corporation is quickly becoming as absolute as it is brutal—unless the Tomorrows can stop it.

    This is a fantastic comic book first with great writing and an incredible sense of pace and destination. It's riding as fast as it wants to and we can only hope to keep up and enjoy it. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Forrest Hollingsworth Jun 14, 2015

    The Tomorrows is retro, smart, brightly colored and unrepentantly fun look at a dystopia unlike any other in comics right now. There's some stuff that you've seen or heard before but, the stuff that's new is so wonderfully inspired and smart that you can look past the bluntness with ease. I have no idea where it's going but, a book that talks about Bowie, Warhol and has laser powered motorcycles can only be going somewhere good. Especially so, under the direction of creators that operate on a truly different level than most working now. Read Full Review

    Villain Smash - Torin Chambers Jul 8, 2015

    Curt Pires has started his first ongoing with a bang, theres a literal mic drop at the end of the issue that feels well-earned. If youre looking for a light hearted good time, look elsewhere, but If youre looking for an alternative comic thatll engage and challenge you then Tomorrows is for you. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Sep 6, 2015

    The Tomorrows shares some themes with another brilliant work currently being published, Greg Rucka's Lazarus, but The Tomorrows is filled with more sci-fi whimsy and way more snarky. When paired with Lazarus though, The Tomorrows makes for just as smart a read, albeit a slightly more lighthearted and hopeful one. Lazarus is the best written book being published now, and The Tomorrows has the same potential that Lazarus did when it was launched. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alice W. Castle Jul 9, 2015

    This issue is a fun and exciting first issue that manages to both feel fresh and new as we're introduced to these characters for the first time, but lived-in at the same time as we see conflicts that have clearly burned for a while in-universe come to a head. Curt Pires and Jason Copland have created a first issue that ably combines excellent action with an engaging story that keeps you hooked and wanting more. While Copland won't be returning to “The Tomorrows” for the time being, as each issue will be illustrated by a different artist, he was a fantastic choice to kick off this first issue.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 8, 2015

    The book has a great sense of style and energy about it, a kind of rawness that plays to that whole cyberpunk era without really going whole hog with the worst of the cliches, but it also really embraces the referential side here of the cast as they talk about things from decades past and turn a lot of words into verbs. It may be a bit off-putting at times, but it doesn't quite date it and adds a certain kind of charm. I'm certainly intrigued. Read Full Review

    The Tomorrows #1 is a clever look into a possible future, as though it's pace is at times a little too fast, there's plenty to excite. It also has some great character development, introducing us to a world that is very morish. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Jun 30, 2015

    Overall, I would still say I enjoyed this book despite it's flaws and would describe it as a rough diamond. Sure there are some pacing issues here and there, but there's still a lot of really cool ideas on display that if given proper time to grow, could become something really cool in later issues. Right now, the book's style alone still warrants it a purchase, but hopefully the script issues can be ironed out to make something truly special. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Aaron Sullivan Jun 15, 2015

    The art in Tomorrows is appropriately gorgeous. It balances color and grime, realism and impression, to an ideal degree considering its subject matter. Interestingly enough, the artist for Tomorrows is different with each issue, giving different people the chance to show off their work over the course of the series. I can only hope the subsequent art Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Jul 9, 2015

    As the final pages come across, the proverbial gauntlet has certainly been thrown. Featuring a fantastic final page, the creators are not shying away from showing their card with regard to where the story is headed. Though the construction of the story is certainly that of a dystopian society, the unique elements about how this status quo has been reached, connecting it to the collection and use of personal data through the internet is clever. Piresalso utilizes a number of casual mentions or background images to indicate so much history to this cause and fight. It is incredible to get a sense of just how massive this problem is through these elements placed throughout the story. With so much having occurred already, it will be interesting to see where the next issue heads. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Jarrett Kruse Jul 13, 2015

    The Tomorrows is an okay enough book, but I certainly don't think they are reinventing the wheel the way a lot of critics seemed to summarily agree on. I did not think any new ground was being broken during the time I read the first issue. It was okay, but definitely not something I would highly recommend to my fellow readers looking for a new series to jump on board to read. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Lance Lambert Jul 8, 2015

    The Tomorrows is a great attempt at a concept on the rise. We see more areas of our culture delving into the ideas, most recently apparent in art. However, there needs to be more fresh, unique approaches. The Tomorrows did not bring much of anything new to the table. Much of the praise goes to the team's effort to further the conversation in comics. When it comes down to picking it up off the racks, you might just want to stick to philosophy section in the library. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - JAdam Jul 9, 2015

    It's impossible to tell what the future will hold for this comic, but this debut does not make me excited to read future issues. It just feels so much like 1984, which is in a league of its own, making it extremely difficult for The Tomorrows to succeed such a classic. If you're looking for a compelling tale about overcoming the challenges of a dystopian future, I recommend picking up 1984 over The Tomorrows. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 13, 2015

    "The Tomorrows" #1 has a lot of heart, but it just doesn't quite come together on the page. This is a book that I wanted to enjoy much more than I actually did. It tries but, ultimately, a little too hard to actually succeed. Read Full Review
