    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Nov 29, 2023

    Crave #1 has the feel of a great A24 horror film like Midsommar or Bodies Bodies Bodies, with a high concept (in this case involving the internet and apps), interesting characters and a heavy atmosphere and feeling of dread throughout. You feel something seriously malevolent is going to happen and every panel seems filled with omens of things to come. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 28, 2023

    Crave is an intriguing start to a series that toys with a new technology that takes dating and sex to a darker place. There's something deeper going on, and while it's unclear where Llovet is going with that, she's done an exceptional job setting up her characters. Read Full Review

    Crave #1 is as sexy as it is tense, a coming-of-age story shrouded in a story made for an older generation. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 29, 2023

    Crave #1 delivers an idea I want to come back more for but with the debut, I'm not sure how much it'll explore its relevant idea. It nails the issues with social media and technology head on, bluntly in some ways. Now a question is out there as to what it might do with it beyond getting characters laid. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Dec 2, 2023

    Crave #1 presents itself as if it has something interesting to say about desire, social media, trauma, wealth, and relationships but is ultimately a pretty shallow read. Read Full Review
