    Max Landis may have a very short comic book resume, but his talent is undeniable. His latest series gets off to a tremendous start, immersing you in a world of knights, barbarians, and some of the most entertaining banter you're bound to read. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Nikki Sherman Oct 5, 2016

    This book was an immediate addition to my pull-list. While I wasn't thrilled at first with the man-pain unfolding in the last few pages, I'm hoping that Landis will stay true to his words in his letter at the end that we have no idea what's coming. I can't wait to see these four friends battle through the toughest enemies as the story continues. What a truly exciting book this is. Read Full Review

    Pastrami Nation - Nolan Smith Oct 10, 2016

    I love comic books, especially comics that step out of the norm of what most people think a comic should be. Like Green Valley, which is a comic book set to knights chopping enemies down and defending their kingdom- sounds more like a movie. But thats it: the comic book medium can be used to tell any genre of story, something Landis and Camuncoli both show masterfully here. I cant wait for issue #2, and it looks like Im not the only one as Image has always stated that the first issue has sold out. Go seek Green Valley #1, and get ready for a hell of a ride.

    AiPT! - David Brooke Oct 3, 2016

    Green Valley #1 is a calm before the storm opening salvo that will kick you in the teeth more than once. It has a handle on dialogue that's expected from Landis at this point, but just as satisfying as ever. You will dig this tale if you like your knights believable and primed for violence.

    Graphic Policy - Joe Ryan Oct 5, 2016

    This book went from something I was thinking of picking up eventually simply because of the mention of knights, dragons, and the fantasy setting to an absolute must read. Do yourself a favor, and enter the Green Valley, it is beautiful. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Patrick Larose Oct 9, 2016

    What I want from Green Valley #1 isn't necessarily what Green Valley wants to do and what it wants to do doesn't even necessarily align with its marketing and while there's a mystery to be unraveled here but I couldn't even tell you where it might begin. So hurry up, Green Valley #2, and show me what you're really trying to do here. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Bob Bretall Oct 18, 2016

    If you like epic battles, sieges, and sword fights Green Valley should be right up your alley. Landis promises to take us places we don't expect: “Nothing you've seen so far has betrayed how complicated our story really is”. I'll believe him. I enjoyed this issue and the cliffhanger he leaves us with is a jumping off point to a couple of obvious continuation points, I'm very interested to see how Landis makes good on his promise to give us a ‘what happened next' that is totally unexpected.

    Bounding Into Comics - David Edwards Oct 6, 2016

    Green Valley #1 clearly achieves what Landis and co. set out to do. The trouble is, for now at least, I'm left slightly unsure as to what exactly that is. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Dylan Hicks Oct 6, 2016

    However, even with the amazing art, I still have to give this book a 2.5 out 5. Max's work was just not up to par with the quality I have grown to expect from Image, which begs the question, how did his script get picked up in the first place? Needless to say, save your money, unless you really want to support the artists. Read Full Review
