SERIES PREMIERE! Ten minutes in the future, the world runs on an economy of job shares and apps, including Reapr: a crowdfunding platform to fund assassinations. Charlie Ellison leads a quiet, normal life until she's suddenly targeted by a million-dollar Reapr campaign. Hunted by all of Los Angeles, Charlie hires Vita, the lowest-rated bodyguard on the Dfend app. As the campaign picks up speed, they'll have to figure out who wants Charlie dead before the campaign's 30 days-or their lives-are over.

    The Brazen Bull - Jaimee Nadzan Aug 14, 2018

    Set in the very near future, apps have taken over our day-today lives, but it's not all for the convenience and connection. Crowded #1 is a thoroughly interesting and exciting read that will leave the readers eager for issue #2. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Mar 6, 2018

    The book is a co-creation of the entire creative team (including letterer Cardinal Rae, who does some particularly clever work with the tails of speech balloons to indicate height differences or speaking around the corner), and it shows - Crowded is a collaborative effort that wouldn't be nearly as engaging and entertaining to read without the contributions of its full roster of creators.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Gary Moloney Aug 6, 2018

    Crowded delivers on the promise of its premise with skill and style that practically ensures its place as one of the year's best comics. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Jenna Clark Aug 14, 2018

    There have not been many titles that I have been looking forward to, yet this one is a definite "must read." It was strong enough to get through its premise and is just right in keeping you hanging at the end. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Marcus Orchard Aug 14, 2018

    Crowded #1 is a successful debut to an original series. Its timely, fun, and exciting. This is an easy recommendation for fans of summer blockbuster comedies and for those who want a little mystery sprinkled into their action. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 1, 2018

    I've said this a few times, but there hasn't been a lot of Image titles that I've been excited for lately. Crowded is interesting, not just the concept, but with its execution. The first issue comes out strong, but not so strong that it feels like the story can never top what it accomplishes here. Rather, I'm looking forward to more from this series and seeing how the thirty days pan out. To put it another way, Crowded may be the next big thing from Image. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nathaniel Muir Aug 14, 2018

    Crowded is a fun story filled with action that uses blunt social commentary to get across its frightening message. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Adam Brown Aug 8, 2018

    The story is set up as a genuinely interesting mystery; why would a nobody command such a high crowd funded campaign total? The thriller aspect aptly backed up by some Hollywood style action and dark humour keeps everything from becoming too dark and wobbling off course. Read Full Review
