From writer RYAN O'SULLIVAN (Turncoat, The Evil Within, Warhammer 40,000) and illustrator PLAID KLAUS (Turncoat), comes the story of Ana and Gabe, the last two humans left alive in the galaxy. They're low on fuel, they're low on food, and they're low on psychedelic space froot, but they're still determined to make it to the promised land: hippy-paradise, super-planet Euphoria. This is the story of their journey, the friends and enemies they made along the way, and how the universe responded to those who dared to live freely within it.
"Beautiful, drugged, and hilarious sci-fi from an alternate universe where the only Captain America anyon more

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Joshua Evans Nov 3, 2017

    This latest Image offering is just so tantalizingly good on so many levels and has all the elements to really go the distance, and become a sprawling saga that the industry will never forget. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Pierre Brown Nov 22, 2017

    Writing from Ryan OSullivan and art from Plaid Klaus keeps this comic engaging and throwing curveballs at every turn. Its not easy to pull a reader in completely with a single issue but Im fully convinced that this will be a great read. Unfortunately, though the end is already in sight since this will be only 5 issues long but Ill be waiting for Issue #2 in December. Read Full Review

    The art of Ryan O'Sullivan and Plaid Klaus' VOID TRIP #1 is absolutely phenomenal. Although at times the characters feel a little clich, they do not feel overdone or out of place. The story is a fun and funny adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Read Full Review

    We've always said that the best science fiction comes when the human story underneath is just as powerful as the out-of-this-world setting in which the story takes place. Void Trip is a perfect example of this. Searching for a higher meaning in a galaxy that has forgotten them truly benefits Ana and Gabe. Plus, the companions they keep ensure that the backbone of the story is quite light, cutting in with brilliant lines of dialogue and comedic moments that would fit perfectly in a stoner movie. If you're looking for a wild adventure spanning across the galaxy, but also takes time to develop its characters in genuinely interesting ways, we could not recommend this more. Read Full Review

    Void Trip #1 is an enjoyable and entertaining read that will leave you craving more. The characters are perfectly suited for one another, giving off a vibrant and bubbly energy that will have you in stitches. I'm very intrigued by their mysterious pursuer and why he wishes to ruin the fun for them and what this might mean for their future plans. If you're looking for a fun-filled space adventure with a bunch of space froot munching crazies, then grab a copy and enjoy the trip. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Oct 23, 2017

    Image Comics have never shied away from books that depict sex, violence or drugs. The pair in this book may very well be metaphoric stoners, and I am sure that will engender them to a raft of readers. Whilst I am an "each to their own" kind of guy, this isn't a subculture I havea lot of experience in, so at times, throughout the issue, I got the feeling that I wasn'tthe target audience. Still, I am not going to let that little fact detract from a well thought out, well put together book. Read Full Review

    Science-fiction fans looking for something different may find this to be a Trip worth taking, provided you don't expect Robert Heinlein. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Nov 25, 2017

    At the end of this issue Ana and Gabe have been tracked down despite their best efforts, and one gets the feeling that they are both going to experience a big "low", coming down off this excellent "high" of an issue. This book has me intrigued, and I had a blast with its chilled-out vibe. A fun start to the series. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Brad Doskas Nov 19, 2017

    In the wake of a ton of serious drama titles his one purposely doesn't take itself too seriously. As this star hopping Pineapple Express moves along who knows where this title will take Ana and Gabe. This looks like it is going to be a fun ride though. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matt Sadowski Nov 27, 2017

    "Void Trip" doesn't do much to transcend the stoner comedy feel of its first issue. Aside from the vibrant art, this trip feels a bit, well, void. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Robbie Rowe May 30, 2018

    I don't recommend Void Trip to everyone, but if a mix of psychedelic drug trips, a topless, rebellious bike rider, many robots and lots of sadness sounds like something you'd like " then give it a go. You likely won't find a story quite like this every day. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Nov 21, 2017

    The question of Void Trip, at this point, is whether or not the sweet, sweet taste of froot is enough to turn a one-time customer into someone jonesing for more. And that's going to be an uphill battle for this book, particularly since we've seen similar threads in books like Joyride, Quantum and Woody, or even Image's recently concluded Chew. But there is a certain bit of magic to Plaid Klaus's artwork that makes Void Trip transcend some of its early growing pains, and it's definitely a series I plan to keep an eye on in the future.

    Alright, that was interesting. A silly psychedelic stoner sci-fi adventure in the making. Makes for a fun light read after blazing one up. Also gorgeous artwork.

    I was totally unexpected, but I buy it. I open, the art was fun, so I tried.
    And that wasn't bad at all. Maybe a little too mad, like the writing was mad under illegal substance.
    But the two characters are lovables even with their flaws.
    I would have liked to know why their was some cop after them.
    And when at the end when he stat that because, free spirit are dangerous, I find it a little dump & low.

    Cover - Funny. Not very good because that wasn't what would make me buy the book. That's the "1" who make me open it and the art who do the charm. And that don't tell anything about what inside outside a little of both character. But I find them repulsive in my first looking. That was after reading it, that I see more

    The story of "Void Trip" is basically of two outlaw junkies on the run from the law, except that it's in SPAAAACE so you can enjoy some original art. Besides the gorgeous art, though, there's nothing very original or likable about this issue.

    I'm not sure what direction this is going, but it is a fun issue with cool, trippy space visuals.
