In this shocking new sci-fi horror series, a Russian computer virus has jumped the species barrier and wiped out most of the adult population, leaving the world precariously in the hands of the next generation. In the wake of devastation, musical prodigy Oscar Fuentes is separated from his twin sister Cira. Stranded on opposite sides of the country, they're swept into rapidly evolving networks of teenage gangs. Can Oscar find his way back to Cira . . . or will they be lost to each other forever, in a dangerous makeshift civilization that is mercilessly replacing the past?

    The plague aspect of Tomorrow could've easily produced more graphic depictions of the effects and results of the sickness, but the way it's portrayed is refreshingly restrained to avoid delving into over-the-top, morbid scenes. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - John Schaidler Feb 28, 2020

    Final Verdict: 9.1 With an immensely likable, neuro-atypical viewpoint character, a pitch-perfect narrative structure and killer artwork to boot, "Tomorrow" #1 is another home run from Berger Books. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Feb 26, 2020

    Tomorrow #1 does a lot and does it extraordinarily well. While both introducing a global crisis, as well as the key characters the book will follow, is a lot, it manages to keep the information clear, and its moments impactful. If the creative team can keep this up Tomorrowhas the potential to be an emotionally impactful series. Read Full Review

    Tomorrow is not your run of the mill comic book, and I love it: no superheroes, no capes, but real emotion, real danger, and a really great start. I highly recommend Tomorrow; it's a break from your usual comic book fare. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Feb 26, 2020

    While grabbing all of the good elements of the Pulse, PontyPool, and the Ring, Tomorrow #1, is not just another sci-fi story, but paired with the right background music, it is an experience, and that's why I am making this one my suggested reads of the week (See variants of the week).

    Tomorrow offered this reader a captivating disaster storyline. By offering a refreshing story containing recognizable characters Tomorrow already has me speculating. For Agent Treacy it is a question of mission or family? For Nate and his father, I wonder how far the apple has fallen from the tree? Finally, will the twins be reunited again? Tomorrow is uncertain, none knows what it may bring. Isn't that the wonderful thing about Tomorrow after all. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 27, 2020

    Milligan's story is fairly straightforward at this point but I really expect that when it comes to virus/contagion style series. There's going to be more interesting material ahead in how the world and the cast react to what's going on than the early days of it causing the chaos. There's definitely some solid fun here and I'm curious to see what direction Milligan will take it since he can be pretty unpredictable with his works. Read Full Review

    The creative team for Tomorrow #1 takes a stab at an old idea all the adults are gone and the kids in charge are bloody savages, rooting so well in character that this comic offers something new to the trope. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Mar 1, 2020

    The end of the world comes in the form of a computer virus, which is the only real interesting element in an otherwise entertaining story that doesn't really attempt to do anything different with elements we've all come to understand. Milligan and Hervas work well together to craft a world on the precipice of total collapse. Hopefully, the rest of the series works hard to engage the attention of its readers. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Adam Brown Feb 26, 2020

    This is a good comic which many will enjoy, but it sadly just isnt for me. With an indication of where the plot is heading revealed in the next issue instead of focussing on some of the established elements, we see yet more being heaped on. This is a story where, for my tastes at least, less could have been more. Read Full Review
