Lose yourself in a world of endless fantasy and creativity, where superheroes, monsters, magical creatures, and cartoon characters live and breathe alongside us.

    Something Epic is an experience that truly lives up to its name. It's been a long time since I've read a book that has left me with such a sense of wonder and hope. This comic book reminds us that it's okay to be a dreamer, to have an imagination, and to get lost in worlds that don't exist. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 10, 2023

    Theres real potential for a horror like the one Kudranski is developing for the series. Its an attractive concept: everything in every fantasy world that youve ever encountered actually exists alongside everyone you know in your real waking life. Given the right framing of the concept and the right creative momentum, Something Epic could really turn into something overwhelmingly cool and close to genius. At the end of the first issue, however, its very difficult to tell whether or not it might simply be cheesy horror with a reasonably novel premise. Read Full Review

  • 5.0 - Jamie Lovett May 10, 2023

    Something Epic has a strong premise and great artwork, but all the hand-wringing over the burden of creativity gets in the way of any semblance of plot, which makes it a nebulous read. Read Full Review
