    Florida Geek Scene - Brian Reed Apr 22, 2015

    This one's really looking good, right from the start. Fast paced, slick characters, cool world, and such an open-ended ending… this is a fine first issue, and I'm left wanting more. Unless you're a superhero junkie, or your budget is just completely tapped out, I think you should give Infinite Loop a chance while things are just getting rolling. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chris White Apr 21, 2015

    When Teddy encounters a girl on the final pages, we notice that there is an instant connection between the two and everything that Teddy has come to believe (whether she does believe in the abandonment of love or not) seems to be forgotten, and that feeling of love at first sight is 100% prevalent in Elsa Charretiers beautifully simplistic final page. Elsa is a talented artist. The nuances she shows in her panels are wonderful, from the repetition of the pastel-like palette of colours and the lack of descriptive detail makes the artwork easier on the eyerepetitive in a good way and clearer to follow. There is never a drastic change of colour, and the shading is basic, but I believe that is Elsas intention. It is abundantly clear that she can draw one hell-of-a picture but, she chooses minimalism over embellishment. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Marcus Orchard Apr 23, 2015

    "The Infinite Loop" #1 is a delightful debut to a series that most people have probably never heard of. The characters are fun, and the concept is sound. Even better, the use of same-sex relationships isn't at forced here. It all feels natural. Those who want to read something different should definitely give this title a try. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - J. Reifler Apr 22, 2015

    It's too soon to tell whereThe Infinite Loop is heading but I found myself digging the concept and interested in finding out more about the series leads. Just take the story for what it is and don't expect all of the answers at once. WIth time travel books if you think about it all too hard the entire story unravels so it's best to just let things unfold and focus on the characterization of the leads. The last pages reveal had thatcertain touch of ‘doomed love' that the only a French writer can convey. I see great things forPierrick Colinetdown the line and look forward to reading more of this book. Read Full Review

    ComicWow!TV - Bhavna Bakshi Apr 20, 2015

    It has only been one issue, and I’m hooked. Will Teddy rectify the anomaly (her true love)? Will Ulysses ever get Teddy’s attention, romantically? What will happen to history if Teddy does not rectify the anomaly? There is so much to come, and we’re only one issue in. So if you’re interested, now is the time to get on board this story arc and read along for a fun and awesome adventure. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Marykate Jasper Apr 27, 2015

    Glossy and confident, "The Infinite Loop" #1 has me looking forward to issue #2. Though I wish this issue dove a bit more into Teddy and the anomaly, it's certainly built my anticipation for that encounter. This is a lovely addition to the science fiction landscape. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Stephenson Ardern-Sodje Apr 24, 2015

    Charretier's panelling does a lot for the frenetic pace of this issue, grabbing you from the first encounter with an anomaly (which, by the way, contains an interactive flow-chart that combines elements ofJurassic ParkwithBack to the Future) and keeping you on your toes till the final panel. She's constantly experimenting with perspective, colour, washes, and achronal settings in a way that makes every page feel unique and yet still tied together. By the time you reach the last page it's obvious that there has been no effort spared as far as inventiveness goes. Charretier pens a chase scene like few artists working at the moment, and her visual representation of the multilayered network of time is perfectly suited for this raucous, helter-skelter comic book.

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Apr 21, 2015

    The Infinite Loop is one of those series that will crack any preconceived notion of what you might expect from its story. A new series from relatively unknown creators are like a mystery box that you should open with an open mind. This was a decent start for TheInfinite Loop with some bumpy moments, but was overall a sincere debut to what may end up being the unique series that it will blossom into. Read Full Review
