    Simmonds art is visually provocative and engages me on a visceral level. There are so many great panels and pages to connect with.  Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 29, 2022

    There is SO MUCH to explore with respect to paranoid conspiracy theory. The rate at which Simmonds is introducing elements almost seems as random as the order in which they appear on the page. Theres a wild sense of disorder about it all, but long-running narratives that explore this sort of thing DO run the risk of becoming a big, hopeless mess as the episodes continue. Tynion DOES seem to have a very distinct idea for the flow of action and exposition, but a big part of the appeal of the series lies in the sense of madness and chaos that rest at its heart. As of the 21st issue, everything seems to be well-balanced. Its a tricky balance, and Tynion is managing it quite well. Read Full Review
