When the world ended, the executive branch failed to reach the sanctuary, but the elite citizenry did. Eighty years later, one of their own has named himself the new President of the United States. His plan? Subjugate the survivors of the America more

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Nov 23, 2020

    The best comic about America falling to pieces in terms of art, plotting and execution, Post Americana #1 joins a crowded field of near-future dystopian stories about the United States and immediately sets itself apart from the field, doing so with top-tier art and memorable characters.

    Sequential Planet - Danilo To Dec 17, 2020

    Post Americana may have come during a time quite too close to its own fictional world. However, the story progresses a lot differently than what we're seeing nowadays so it's up to us to relax, lean back, and read this amazing comic composed by, honestly, a ridiculously talented set of artists.

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Jan 1, 1970

    There's a lot going on in Post Americana #1, in terms of the set up for future issues. Skroce expertly handles the introduction to the setting and the main characters, while along the way, takes a knife to just about every major American cultural point over the last decade. It's fun and furious, and just a little bit dangerous. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Cody White Dec 16, 2020

    Post-Americana #1(#ImageComics @Skroce01 @Dragonmnky) delivers a violent, grindhouse feel in this post-cataclysmic tale of an America falling apart that strikes very close to home. Read Full Review

    GWW - B Ferg Dec 15, 2020

    Post Americana is everything that a country could be and not know it. It doesn't take much to expose those ugly truths and realities. In Carolyn we are given a character with a vision, perhaps a vision for Post Americana…or what is to become of it. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Chase Magnett Dec 16, 2020

    Skroce channels the ultraviolent appearances and grungy future tech that made even the darkest chapters of We Stand On Guard a thrill to read and unleashes them in a torrent of nightmare sequences most effectively described as "fun." Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Dec 16, 2020

    Post Americana is fine. It gets points for its woman of color lead, but for me it lacks a compelling enough hook, narratively speaking, and in conjunction with its art style not quite meshing with my preferences, it's hard to say any more than it's just fine. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 16, 2020

    Post Americana #1 delivers a good amount of action and some interesting concepts but as a whole has presented a lot of bad guys and no one to cheer on. Why wouldn't I want a government to restore order when cannibals are running about? Where is the part of society that's functioning and I'm supposed to care about? None of it is presented and none of it is really hinted at. For once, I'm hoping the 1% wins. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Nov 25, 2020

    In the end, Post Americana #1 delivers a solid start to its tale. While all the elements come together well enough, there isnt a whole lot to set this story apart from the many other offerings in its genre. So if you are a die-hard fan of the off-color post-apocalyptic looking for a fix, this book might provide just the thing you are looking for. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Curtis Dec 16, 2020

    Overall, Post Americana is not terribly original, and it's certainly not high-brow. But its art and irreverent tone make for an engaging read worth several re-readings for the energy and grandiose details supplied. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Dec 16, 2020

    Post Americana's first issue is serviceable, if unoriginal. It's possible Skroce's story could move in unexpected directions in later issues. Even if it does not, the action is solid enough and the excellent artwork is reason enough to continue reading this series, which reads like a good piece of Fallout fan-fiction. Read Full Review
