SERIES PREMIERE! Introducing a new creative team everyone will be talking about-superstar talent writer MAT GROOM and artist EDUARDO FERIGATO. When chaos besieges the kingdom of Arcadia, warrior Amala Citlali sees it as her chance to escape her clearly-defined role-and to change her destiny. But she could never have predicted that it would also be her chance to confront her God. In his debut editorial role, comics veteran KYLE HIGGINS guides this intimate, worlds-spanning story of self-discovery.

    Fantasy plus science fiction, this is a tale that comes down to the pros and cons of playing God, and the premiere issue has everything needed to make this series great. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - CJ Dec 3, 2018

    Overall, Self/Made is a wonderful entry into the fantasy/sci-fi genre, put together by a top-shelf creative team. I'm looking forward to what Groom and Ferigato bring us in future issues. Read Full Review

    SELF/MADE #1 is a well paced story with a fascinating sci-fi premise about self-determination. Although this issue is marred by too much exposition, Eduardo Ferigato's art and Marcelo Costa's colors make up for it. Color me interested in following the series well into 2019. Read Full Review

    This is an intensely fun first issue that had me engaged throughout to the point where I was pleasantly surpised with the twist at the end of the issue. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Dec 4, 2018

    There is way more here than meets the eye. The usual formulaic adventure tale of the quest for the McGuffin of ultimate power is well worth wading through for the fully satisfying and unexpected twist at the end. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 4, 2018

    A good start to a sci-fi fantasy series that is one to watch. Westworld fans are going to love this. The first issue knocks your socks off with a twist you won't see coming. Read Full Review

    Self/Made #1 is difficult to critique. It's greatest quality is, by far, its promise of what is to come. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alex Clark-McGlenn Dec 4, 2018

    A great start to a promising story. One only hopes the philosophical leanings brought up in this #1 continue throughout the run. Read Full Review

    While the actual artistic craft is in there, as well as future potential, this issue simply fails to excite. Read Full Review
