    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Mar 29, 2023

    Indigo Children is a near perfect first issue that successfully takes a fairly common trope of the sci-fi gifted child and invigorates it by taking some interesting risks with how much it shows the reader while the art team execute an absolutely flawlessly paced cinematic comic that sucks you in and doesn't let go till the last page. A very strong and promising debut issue from everyone involved. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Collier Jennings Mar 30, 2023

    Indigo Children #1 delivers a tightly plotted, starkly illustrated sci-fi thriller that raises just as many questions as it answers. Is Alexei a savior or a tyrant? Is he the next stage of evolution, or a force from beyond the stars? Whatever the answers, I look forward to where future issues take us. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Mar 29, 2023

    Indigo Children #1 is an intriguing start. It uses a rather controversial term for its title but overall the comic steers clear of the controversy. Instead, it's a placeholder for mutant or meta that other publishers use. How it all plays out should be rather interesting as the setup is intriguing and the comic itself paces things out nicely.

    Capes & Tights - Justin Soderberg Mar 30, 2023

    This double-length debut issue is action packed with outstanding simple artwork from Alex Diotto, amazing colors from Dee Cunniffe, and eye-catching lettering from Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou. The creative team uses color changes to decipher between current times and flashbacks which is something that works well for simple comic readers. The book is both well written, which is to be expected with Pires and Rockwell White, and great to look at visually. Read Full Review

    Final ThoughtsGovernment conspiracies, a hint of Heinleins novel Stranger In A Strange Land, and an overt reference to The Truman Show make this an intriguing debut. After two readings, I dont understand everything in Indigo Children #1, but I welcome learning more. Read Full Review

  • 4.0 - Jamie Lovett Mar 29, 2023

    Indigo Children #1 doesn't deliver enough. It's derivative, ineffective at the basic tenets of the genre it's trying to play in, and the execution of its simple plot is rough around the edges. Read Full Review
