    Strange is Graham's modus operandi, and with Multiple Warheads he gives us strangeness, violence, love, sex, and puns -- oh god, the puns! -- in what I would call a career-defining work for anyone else. For Graham, it's just business as usual. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Oct 26, 2012

    Sometimes a comic book can celebrate the entire medium simply by being different, and by being very, very good. This is one of those times. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Ryan Rodriguez Oct 29, 2012

    Every cell of "Multiple Warheads" is extremely lively and every being has peculiar characteristics; radiation-sniffing creatures hiss out racial slurs, cigarettes sing obnoxious tunes and motorcycles posses blood-hound-like senses. Nothing is ordinary in any sense. Understanding the world can be daunting at first, but there is much to discover and enjoy within this obscure world. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ed Allen Oct 31, 2012

    Those of you who are already fans of Brandon Graham's previous work shouldn't need much encouragement to give Multiple Warheads (Alphabet to Infinity) #1 a try; the rich imagination we've come to expect from Graham is hard at work and his artwork has never looked better. If you haven't already encountered his comics then this issue is the perfect place to start. Multiple Warheads is a charming comic, one which features high adventure and a scattering of madcap concepts yet remains (relatively) grounded by a knowing sense of humor. I can promise you that this comic will be unlike anything else you read this month and I can't wait to read next month's installment. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Edward Kaye Oct 25, 2012

    The story is trippy and bizarre, and jam packed full of fascinating concepts and ideas. It's a real wild ride that is sure to make your head spin. Graham's artwork has a wonderfully cartoony look to it that brings to mind the work of Jamie Hewlett, and he packs every page with an amazing amount of detail and little easter eggs. This is an unmissable comic that you need in your collection. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 25, 2012

    "Multiple Warheads: Alphabet to Infinity" #1 is the start of a mini-series, but as Graham notes on the inside front cover, the idea is really to have it be the start of an ongoing series where Graham stockpiles enough art to have regular monthly releases, with pauses to let him then catch back up. With the first issue clocking in at 48-pages, that approach feels more than reasonable to me. If you haven't read "King City" or "Prophet" yet, you absolutely should. But until then, check out "Multiple Warheads: Alphabet to Infinity" #1. This is pure fun from start to finish. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Elijah Williams Oct 28, 2012

    If you are sick of comics all being the same then this is the comic for you. I cannot promise you will like it, it's not for everyone, but you will definitely remember it and find it different from anything else you are currently reading. It definitely jived well with me, so pick it up. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Oct 25, 2012

    Overall, the book pairs nicely the, if not post-apocalyptic than pretty damn close, world with the beauty and joy that Graham finds in these creatures and landscapes. While at times I felt lost, there was nothing a little deeper reading couldn't fix, and my reading experience was all the better for it. While I wish I had read the initial Oni chapter, I still feel I got a lot out of this comic, and I'm looking forward to the next installment " hopefully not five years away. Read Full Review
