  The Big Bang created all life as we know it. The Bigger Bang creates just one: a being named Cosmos. Is he a destroyer? A hero? A god? All he knows is that he's completely alone in what was our universe... so he seeks out another where he'll try to atone for the sins of his mysterious creation. From the inventive minds of D.J. Kirkbride (Amelia Cole, Never Ending) and Vassilis Gogtzilas (Augusta Wind) comes a sprawling space-epic of multi-dimensional proportions.

    Comic Bastards - Andr Habet Nov 12, 2014

    The Bigger Bang is a surprise find in a week full of great comics. Its creators have taken what seems like a pretty big risk artistically, and I hope it pays off for them. When a comic starts off with space castles and space whales, it's thrilling to think of what'll come up next for Cosmos. Read Full Review

    The Bigger Bang #1 was a slow but compelling initial installment to a series that looks to be a wonderfully different take on the cosmic comic book genre. The blend of high adventure and morality tales, mixed with some of the most unique and artistic pens and colors I've seen in years, culminates in a terrific comic books. I'm hooked on everything about The Bigger Bang, and I can't wait to get more. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tres Dean Nov 13, 2014

    The comic asks the question of what would happen if a bigger cosmic event than The Big Bang created a single lifeform: the clear Superman analogue Cosmos. Kirkbride's writing is magnificently Kirby-esque. It's very exclamatory and poetic in a clearly intentional over-the-top manner. Overall, it's a lot of fun to read. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Tyler Sewell Nov 11, 2014

    Initially, I'm not sold on The Bigger Bang, but I recognize its potential. It has a compelling plot and is set to a unique style of artwork. I'll be picking up the next issue hoping a larger sample size will clear up the exact nature of the comic and whether it's a superficial, fun read or if there's more to it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Nov 13, 2014

    "The Bigger Bang" is shaping up to be a good superhero series for IDW, which hasn't really dipped its toes in that water just yet. With a proper balance of information delivered about the lead and a consistent tone of narration, combined with these unique visuals, this can easily scratch the itch of anyone looking for high concept sci-fi that doesn't take itself terribly seriously.

    Big Comic Page - Hazel Hay Nov 11, 2014

    The artwork though, I liked. What begins sketchy and indecipherable becomes frantic and exciting. Like the worlds in tries to portray it comes from nothing to become something. The very opposite of the story really. Read Full Review
