    I hope to see a sequel or even a prequel to The New World, as it feels like we barely touched the surface of what this universe has to offer. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Mickey Rivera Nov 26, 2018

    Visually and verbally, The New World has straddled a lava-filled chasm between pop-surrealism and complete anarchy. The lover's fable buried under glowing mounds of experimental futurism gains just enough traction to be compelling, helped along by a firmly entrenched sense of radical optimism (in the face of possible annihilation). This issue ties the fable up with some harsh lessons and some unavoidable sentimentality, but lives up to the bizarre, politically-tinged carnival that came before it. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - James Merritt Nov 21, 2018

    A fitting end to a sometimes inconsistent effort. Ales Kot and Tradd Moore finish up their socio-political work in style and with heart. Fans won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    I wanted to like The New World, but there isn't enough in it to like. After a promising start, there just isn't enough in this 5-issue limited series to make anyone want to spend a second more in this "New World."

    Despite the grand scope of issue # 1 and the aftermath of a second Civil War only glimpsed, none of the important questions are answered in the next 4 issues: (1) What happened to Stella's parents? Don't really know; (2) What happened between Logan Maximus and Kirby's dad (at the border)? Don't really know; (3) What happened to Herod to make him like that? Don't really know.

    And if everything is supposedly so divided and blown up, how does a television show reach and connect with the entire world?
