    Petrol Head #1 is a hell of a start and one of the better of the year. The story is familiar but the execution of this debut is so good. This is one that stands out this week and has us excited to see what's next. Read Full Review

    This was a thrilling amalgamation of so many different types of sci-fi tropes (dystopian society, sentient robotic/AI beings, ecological horror, etc.), yet it’s presented in a unique and refreshing way. We only got what feels like ankle deep in this new world and I hope we get to see even more world-building happen in subsequent issues before we get too far into the action and main plot from Rob Williams. Pye Parr’s artistic wizardry makes this a visually pleasing debut issue. Parr’s art really helps to give the new world definition and context and I can’t wait to see how the rest of this new world comes to life.
