CHAPTER ONE: Five years from now: the security of the internet has been totally destroyed. Secrets are no longer sent over the web, they're entrusted to armed couriers called "Ledger Men," like human punching-bag Jack McGinnis. He's got a gun in one hand and a briefcase handcuffed to the other. Danger lurks around every corner, and Jack has to watch his back-because he had a part in the cyber attack that changed the world. Get in on the ground floor of this new ongoing series and thrill as we slam Jack's fist into the faces of spies, mercs, fascists, and eventually less punchable adversaries like a very grumpy artificial intelligence.

    Comic Book Corps - Michael Jones Apr 11, 2018

    Overall, I highly recommend Analog. It hooked me immediately and has a great premise which I believe many readers will find very relevant to the current technological climate. I'm excited to explore this world and see where the story takes us. If you're a fan of hard-boiled detective stories, thrillers, or enjoy technology, Analog is right within your wheelhouse.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 3, 2018

    Analog #1 gives a highly promising start to the series, with Gerry Duggan showing once more his chops when it comes to sci-fi and comedy. OSullivan and Bellaire are no slouches either, making the comic look as good as it reads. This one gets a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Apr 7, 2018

    I loved this issue, loved the world it created, the scenario it set and the characters it gave us. A wise guy lead with fast shooting skills and a grumpy dad, and a great cliffhanger for issue 2. That coupled with splendid art and fine coloring work. A great start to the series. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Brendan F. Hodgdon Mar 20, 2018

    Overall, this is a solid debut issue. It cuts to the quick in setting up the world and its protagonist, while leaving a lot of intriguing balls up in the air for subsequent installments. Analog #1 is a fun read that does a bunch of cool things well. Definitely worth a look for old-school pulp fans who don't mind some new-school packaging. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Mar 20, 2018

    With comics as an industry so obsessed with the high concept, there's something refreshingly low-key about Gerry Duggan and David O'Sullivan's Analog, even if there are times it comes uncomfortably close to biting another comic's well-regarded style. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Apr 2, 2018

    In the aftermath of a digital age gone haywire, it takes a simple man to get the job done. He also needs to be brutal and deadly. Analog is a spy story for today reminding us that nothing stays secret for long, and sometimes they really are out to get us. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Rowan Grover Apr 6, 2018

    A fairly straightforward noir tale with futuristic elements, "Analog" is a fun blend of classical and modern storytelling with moody and evocative art. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Apr 3, 2018

    Analog is a nice first issue to what could turn into a cool story. I'm not exactly blown away by anything here; however, I like the potential I'm seeing. Jack has a lot of charisma and just enough gruff to him to make him fun, so if nothing else, we're in for a cool action showcase. I'm curious to see where this goes. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Joshua Page Apr 3, 2018

    Analog #1 establishes a very ambitious story that is very promising. Though it could use more character depth and maybe some more color variations, this may be a must-read series. I thoroughly enjoyed Analog #1, despite the few criticisms I mentioned above. It appears that this will be a worthwhile series that is not only interesting to read, but also relevant.

    You Don't Read Comics - Kevin A. Kimball Apr 16, 2018

    All told, Analog feels like a new telling of a familiar story. Its definitely worth hanging around for another issue or two to see what separates this iteration from others, or just to curl up in that freshly washed blanket of old. Either way, Jack is bound for varying levels of adventure and snark, and could very well prove worth taking that journey with. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ben Snyder Apr 4, 2018

    Analog #1 isn't a horrible comic, in many ways it is actually above standard fare. I love the world Gerry Duggan, David O' Sullivan, and Jordie Bellaire have created and I am heavily interested in the characters existing in it. But there are certain details that need to be refined if this series is ever to achieve something stellar. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Adam Frey Apr 4, 2018

    Analog is at least fine as a short-term reflection on the state of technology dependence and raises questions about what happens when things go too far and get too dependent on it. O'Sullivan's art is fine for the book, invoking the noir feel of Powers or Batman Adventures and helping set up a larger mystery for this book. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Marisa Carpico Apr 4, 2018

    Duggan is playing with a lot of promising, even prescient material here, but he tries to do too much in this first issue. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Apr 5, 2018

    Narratively, there's a promise that there's more going on than initially presented, but the problem is that Analog's concept isn't fresh enough to engage from the jump. Read Full Review
