    Overall, Nowhere Men #7 is a good continuation of the previous story and a strong beginning to the new one. Read Full Review

    The story itself is still very enthralling and I'm looking forward to where it goes. Bellegarde or no, I'm ready for more Nowhere Men. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Jan 21, 2016

    Nowhere Men is a very complex series. For ongoing and new readers, jumping into this arc might be a bit challenging and therefore a return to the first arc is likely necessary to keep all of the pieces straight. That said, issue #7 is a welcome return and feels as strong as the issues before it. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Garcia Jan 21, 2016

    All in all, “Nowhere Men” #7 is a fine return. It mostly deals with catching us up on what happened in the first arc, but Stephenson does well in grounding the characters and posing more questions. Dave Taylor's artwork serves it's purpose, but it's not until near the end where he starts to make it his own. It remains to be seen if Emi Lenox's prologue is probably the most effective piece, and if the world continues to expand, a wide plethora of styles could help. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, you're going to want to re-read previous issues of this series as a refresher, but it's nice to see this thoughtful comic back on the stands. Read Full Review

    I really do miss Nate Bellegarde on this book, but I think that Dave Taylor does a great job with this issue. Emi Lenox, who I am assuming did the art for the “webcomic”-looking prologue was a neat change of pace for this story, and one that definitely threw me for a loop jumping back into this book. I am not sure how many people are still keenly aware of this book, because it has been quite a while since issue six of this book came out. Not to bore you with too much backstory, or to try and tell story out of school- but it seemed like Nate Bellegarde was having some personal problems, which were interfering with him being able to complete his work because he was getting in his own way, mentally. It was sad to see him not coming back to this book for the new arc, because he put such a distinct spin on this book, that really helped set it apart. I love the entire idea behind this book- that the four biggest names in modern culture (being as close to the Beatles as they can) aren’t actually musicians at all, but scientists. Which is where the rallying cry and merchandising slogan came from for this series- “Science is the New Rock ‘n Roll”. Which is a great t-shirt slogan, if I do say so myself. I like the feel of this book incorporating book covers, posters and other promotional artwork into the pages to really give a depth and weight to the story that is greatly appreciated. I think that this story has a lot of momentum still left, even with such a lengthy break between arcs, but I like that things picked right back up where they left off in the last issue. The artwork is really stellar, Dave Taylor Jordie Bellaire and Fonografiks really have created such a unique looking book, and Eric Stephenson has written such a strange and unique sci-fi story with plenty of mystery and suspense, that it really is quite enjoyable to read. The first volume of this book is out in trade and available physically for $10 and on and Kindle for $8. I love how
