Define your existence! A dedicated nurse named Evie Pierce awakens to an unfamiliar world alongside two other women—one, a young and snarky superhero; the other, a hardened rebel military commander of a post-apocalyptic world. When a mysterious figure begins to hunt them down, the women must work together to survive and discover why they were assembled. Phillip Sevy's authorial sci-fi epic!

    PopCultHQ - Jason Bennett Sep 3, 2019

    In this new Dark Horse title, Sevy creates a universe that could very well become his signature stlye, and what a glorious universe it is. A style which could elevate his sci-fi cred to a new level. Just based off this debut issue, he has raised the bar not only for himself, but for future sci-fi sagas. Phillip Sevy is taking readers on a visually stimulating thrill ride. Best hop on now because TRIAGE is only going to gain steam. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Sep 4, 2019

    Would I recommend Triage #1? I feel as if I would to anyone who is looking for a story that hits you for being both personal and out there as something sci-fi. I mean, how does a nurse measure up to a superhero and a commander? I would want to see this through to the end for how an underdog like that rises to the occasion. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Sep 3, 2019

    Forging a story of personal identity to multiple strong narrative hooks across a whole cast of one Triage #1 is a bold opening gambit for this new series. Shifting well to creator-owned work, Phillip Sevy goes big, but also keeps it personal, tempering the concepts with well worn character work coupled with solid artwork. Part superhero story, part end-of-the-world drama, and all journey of self-discovery, Triage #1 is a bombastic and gripping character study. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Sep 4, 2019

    All in all, Triage #1is a unique start for a new sci-fi story. It introduces the reader to the characters while leaving a mystery to pull the reader along for the next issue. With just a little more focus to the story so things could be a little more fleshed out I think Triage #1 could be the start of a very notable story. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Pashtrik Maloki Sep 11, 2019

    Despite the books really nice artwork and fine paneling, there are some glaring issues with the writing itself. Sevy will hopefully have a chance to iron out the problems. Read Full Review

  • 4.0 - Tanner Dedmon Sep 4, 2019

    The first issue wasn't wholly representative of that since it felt like a chore to power through the opening while constantly feeling like you've missed something, but hopefully the rough patch to an otherwise promising story has passed. Read Full Review

    I don't see anything particularly fresh in this book. A woman and her doppelgängers from of 3 different alternate universes were chosen for an unknown cause, all three of them converge at a single, isolated and bizarre location. Soon they were forced to jump into the main protagonist's world which was not used to anything extra ordinary until now. The narrative started off good but ended up being bland, I thought the art was good nonetheless.

    Visually, this is a really interesting and exciting first issue. The pencils and inking are very strong, but the colouring takes things to the next level. If only Sevy had spent as much time on the script, because narratively this is a complete mess. What is going on? There are shades of Saga in the narrative structure (but Brian K. Vaughn is a better writer). There is no exposition, but rather an internal monologue from the main character, which fails to explain anything. Sadly, Sevy has fallen foul of the modern comic book disease: far too much nonsense is spoken and written about the need for few words in comics. I'm here to call bullshit on that: comics are part visual and part verbal; people who argue that words are unnecessary, simpl more

    Background Info
    The premise of this comic revolves around the philosophical question of "what is the purpose
    of life" a fascinating way to start off a comic for sure. We get our first look at our main
    character Evie Pierce the nurse helping a women give birth at her hospital.

    After this we are treated to sequence of perspective shifts to characters I shall refer to as
    Fallout girl, and super BL. They show us a glimps of these characters in their worlds. Fallout
