    I'm interested to see where it goes from here, and how quickly readers gravitate towards it, but this series has the potential to be the next truly great book from Image. Read Full Review

    One thing that I personally love from a movie or a comic is that it takes you to the time where the events happens, MCMLXXV makes you feel like if you're watching an old movie from the 70's, this excellent comic has a lot of influence from elements of Pop culture of those years and great references to classic artists like Kirby and Moebius, this first issue full of good action quickly allows us to know many aspects of the life of Pamela Evans as well as her past.

    Bounding Into Comics - Nathan Braudrick Jul 27, 2018

    There are a lot of elements at play in MCMLXXV and a lot of genre mashups, but the book has it's own unique voice, even while bothering so many tropes from well known genres. The entire issue reminded me of a movie I would have loved to have watched on the Syfy channel late at night, or even better, would have rented off the dusty shelves of the horror section of my boyhood VHS rental store. It is a nostalgic trip that manages to make itself feel incredibly new, while also being wonderfully familiar. The final pages left me wanting more and wondering what kind of tone this book will ultimately settle on, but whatever that happens to be, Joe Casey and Ian MacEwan have my attention.

    Comic Bastards - Hunter T. Patrick Jul 18, 2018

    This is a good start to a series. It is more compelling than other first issues on stands. A big complaint is reading without ever learning any background or any promise of why things are the way they are or if it is just a world that has always been this haunted, but that is a complaint that should only be a complaint if the series never fixes it, being the first issue, it is excused for that. This is not a work that will appeal to everyone, but for those that are looking for a fun, dark ride, then they will be pleased. Read Full Review
