    Made in Korea packs a lot into its first issue. The six-issue miniseries is ambitious and expansive, worthy of the topic it settled on. There's something lurking in its pages that looks like it'll blow up in later issues concerning the questions that come with adopting a child among couples that can't conceive. Just how much that'll figure in the story remains to be seen, but what's here is already enough to make for an exceptional comic. Read Full Review

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea May 29, 2021

    'Made in Korea' #1 is an involving story not dependent on spectacle but ideas and human nature. It's a science-fiction story built on emotions and wants. What this all means after issue one, only the creators know, but readers will get sucked into the story of a family made whole by the questionable methods of a man with his own agenda. This is the stuff of Philip K. Dick, a quiet triumph, and should not be missed.  Read Full Review
