    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 13, 2022

    As a dystopian modern fable, Least We Can Dois a good start. The world is fascinating, with a backstory worth exploring further, and the concept of social classes is relatable and real. Throw in excellent costume design and interesting supporting characters, and you have a must-read comic for YA fans and adults alike. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - tcreadscomics Sep 14, 2022

    THE LEAST WE CAN DO #1 is largely carried by the visuals. The narrative tells us very little about Uriel, but Romboli's art makes her enthusiasm contagious. This goes a long way toward drawing the reader in. It also helps the narrative which, despite the somewhat heavy-handed delivery of exposition, effectively depicts a dangerous and oppressed world while somehow maintaining an almost light-hearted flair thanks to its depiction of Uriel. This is Zanfardino's chief success. Unfortunately, Uriel's actual story is barebones at best, and the extent to which THE LEAST WE CAN DO #1 is interesting is the result of whether or not the reader connects with its world.

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Sep 9, 2022

    The Least We Can Do #1 has colorful visuals (Elisa Romboli's use of side effects are a real treat.), energetic pacing until the end of the issue, and the cherry on top is that it features a protagonist that is driven by morals and her intellect in a violent, dystopian world. If you like unique, socially conscious takes on the fantasy genre, beefy resistance fighters, or shelves and shelves of books, then this comic is one to check out. Read Full Review

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Sep 14, 2022

    'The Least We Can Do' #1 has all the energy and style Zanfardino and Romboli are known for but in a whole new setting, creating a wonderful fantasy dystopia with a lot of intelligence and intrigue. Their latest protagonist is an inspiring wide-eyed optimist ready to make the world a better place as part of the resistance. Issue one should have you hooked. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Sep 15, 2022

    An intriguing opening chapter of a story that clearly has a huge amount of layers still to be revealed, particularly when it comes to our leading lady herself. Visually stunning and packed with clever ideas, this is another fascinating collaboration from one of the hottest creative teams in the business today. The least you can do is give it a look. Sorry, couldn't resist. Read Full Review

    While the character design and artwork is great, the plot and pacing (and also strangely the lettering) are a mess. Read Full Review
