    Almighty #1 is a badass comic with a lot of promise. The story has heart, grit, good writing, and strong Mad Max vibes. The first issue is a quick read and immediately makes you want to read the next one. If you like action comics, add Almighty #1 to your pull list. Read Full Review

As long as the creative team can pull it off. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 1, 2023

    Almighty #1 isn't a bad debut, it's just a teaser of what's to come and it's pretty standard. People are on the run and people are pursuing them. Beyond that, it's a thin for plot but there's potential here. Laroche has teased an intriguing world and hopefully that exploration delivers an interesting read. As is though, it's a story we've seen far too many times. Read Full Review
