    Caspar and Paknadel draw you into this curious sci-fi world and shake you with a flesh-frazzled visceral grip.

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Dec 7, 2022

    'All Against All' offers the type of intelligent sci-fi drama usually associated with 'Star Trek' in that, science and research are given equal weight to the unpredictability of violent primal instincts. It's a balancing act of creating a logical foundation for the story with some badass visceral conflict. It's the perfect right-brain, left-brain storytelling that'll get your synapses popping.  Read Full Review

    While science fiction comics are a dime a dozen these days, genuinely interesting sci-fi is a far rarer beast.
