SERIES PREMIERE! Newcomer artist JENNY D. FINE shines alongside Marvel Comics' Iceman writer SINA GRACE and co-creator OMAR SPAHI in the all-new modern dramedy you didn't know you needed! Sam and Jack are best friends, and Sam is dating Lauren, Jack's indie rocker sister and roommate. When Sam and Lauren open up their long-term relationship, skyrocketing tensions send social shockwaves through their friend group and the entire Bay Area. And Jack, caught in the middle of it all, may be forced to take sides in a conflict he never wanted to be a part of. Life gets pretty messy when you're in your 20s and your friends are your family.

    Getting it Together is the precious work of creating from experiences, collaboration, detailed design and coloring, with inspiration and alikeness to sitcoms and other forms of media, but ultimately bringing something unique to comics. This wrap up makes the story interesting and defying, and the story itself, while still unfolding, isn't afraid of getting into some gritty territories as it explores the riskiness of things like friendship, sex or romance.

    In the end, Getting it Together #1delivers a decent story. It has some heart mixed with some nice moments but just never really gets to step beyond that to be something truly noteworthy. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Kat Calamia Oct 2, 2020

    This number one had a few missing elements for a well-rounded debut but carves a unique space in mainstream comics for a potentially promising overall series. Getting it Together #1 displays a variety of unique voices into the slice of life and romance genre, but doesn't give enough characterization outside of the main characters' romances to get the reader fully hooked.

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Oct 10, 2020

    Getting It Together #1 is desperately trying to be a trendy and honest story about love and sex, much like so many others before it. Unfortunately it doesn't do enough to set itself apart from those other stories and comes across as bland. Read Full Review
