    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Mar 9, 2022

    Little Monsters #1 is a perfect opening issue that seamlessly marries Lemire's smart, sharp, and to the point script with Nguyen's moody choices in look and feel for a brilliant establishing shot of an apocalyptic world where immortal children play endlessly in the moonlit ruins of a fallen society night after night waiting for the return of the one that made them. Compelling in the ideas it posits and the questions that it will raise on the horizon, Little Monsters #1 is a perfect first issue. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Adam Brown Mar 9, 2022

    As a debut issue, I really enjoyed this. Good concept, good pacing, just enough plot to get you intrigued but not so much as to swamp the characters, and so many panels to linger over. From a world building perspective, there are gaps which you want to fill and for me this is a good sign. Little Monsters has a strong grasp of what it wants to be and where it wants to go, leaving you thirsty for more in its bloody wake. Read Full Review
