    While I wouldn't recommend this particular #1 for readers new to the series, I would definitely send them back to ROCHE LIMIT Vol 1 to start the whole story. The philosophy aspect of the series doesn't hit so hard in this issue, but because of the nature of the series, I'm anticipating more exciting revelations as to what these characters are doing in MONADIC after their deaths in their previous books. Moreci has us right where he wants us. Read Full Review

    There's not too much more that I can say in this review without completely spoiling the whole book. I want to see how these two characters are working in relation to one another. If time doesn't matter where they are, then they might be closer than we're initially led to believe. It's good to have you back, Roche Limit, at least one last time. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Mar 14, 2016

    Existential science fiction is a relatively untapped genre in the world of comics, and in a market increasingly filled with dumbed-down‘shoot the aliens, save humanity' type sci-fi yarns, it's truly refreshing to have such a boldly ambitious series as Roche Limit out there on the shelves. Head-scratching it may be at times, and the lack of explanation for what we're seeing in this first issue could potentially frustrate less patient readers, but I think it's safe to say that if a reader has made it this far into the series, they should share my same confidence that Moreci is going to deliver the goods over these final four issues. Either way, the uncertainty of the conclusion and the sheer wanton creativity on display here is more than enough for me to recommend this series to anyone who'll care to listen. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Mar 15, 2016

    Moreci and company are back with a defiant series that asks you to take the plunge and dive into their dark and mysterious world. A world where you have to pay attention, invest in these characters' lives, because you're either all-in or you're out. As we've witnessed in the last two arcs the pay-off is worth the journey.
