    The creators told the story of their youth the way they wanted to and so it offed itself so we can grow and change and move to the next thing which is the creative team's new series, The Wicked + The Divine. May Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie have 100 years until their Blackstar. Read Full Review

    In an accidental coincidence, this last issue of Phonogram brings into light aspects of Emily and Michael Jackson's death, which ultimately turns the finale into a discussion on music love. It's a very beautiful and successful discussion of the fact that, whether they admit it or not, music has an effect on everyone and it causes so much pain and magic within us. Read Full Review

    PopOptiq - Ashley Leckwold Jan 20, 2016

    The fact thatPhonogram is ending is sad, but The Immaterial Girl was the story it needed to go out on. The final issue isnt full of bombast or drama, but of goodbyes, uncertainty of the future, and new beginnings. It talks about how we imbue meanings in songs and images through the death of one pop star and inadvertently the death of another. Emilys story was one of the trippieststories of letting go and self discovery one could ever read, but damn, was it just right for her and this series. Read Full Review

    If I had a hat, I'd probably be eating it around now. Issue six closes this wonderfully crafted love letter to the halcyon days of music video in fine fashion, and sets the seal on a series that will resonate with lovers of music, and good comics. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Stephenson Ardern-Sodje Jan 25, 2016

    Strong and stylised from beginning to end, Gillen and McKelvie present bravado in the face of uncertainty in a way that feels both peculiarly British and reassuringly universal. Read Full Review
