    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Justin Munday Nov 7, 2021

    A mix of The Warriors, Mad Max, and the sensibilities of My Chemical Romance's Danger Days, this is an impossibly cool mix of styles and mediums into comics. Read Full Review

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Nov 8, 2021

    'What's The Furthest Place From Here' #1 is a fun but powerful work of storytelling from a team of creatives at the height of their powers. Rosenberg, Boss, and Otsmane-Elhaou put together an irresistible mix of High Fidelity meetsMad Max that stylistically stands alone. So put on The Stooges (or Hall & Oates, we won't tell) and enjoy this marvelous new title. Read Full Review

    If I had to choose one album to show me as a character it would be the 1991 KLF White Room, I wonder what that actually says about me as a person. Back to the issue though this is as good as it gets hilariously bizarre script with top in class artwork and lettering. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Michael Farris Jr. Nov 10, 2021

    What's the Furthest Place from Here is a wild, music-infused ride through a pubescent post-apocalypse that is sure to take a primary spot on your pull list. The band is back together with Boss and Rosenberg, and this twist-filled yarn ain't nothing but a good time. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Nov 10, 2021

    Whats The Furthest Place From Here? #1 is a wonderful first issue. Rosenberg, Boss, and Otsame-Elhaou work together beautifully, creating a world that sucks readers in and leaves them begging for more, like a great 7-inch. Itll be great to see how this album, as the metaphor goes, plays out. Read Full Review

    This is a gorgeous and sweet coming-of-age story set in an apocalypse that has taken adults out of the picture. A nearly perfect must-read. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Oct 12, 2021

    Another banger of a first issue from Image Comics then, as Rosenberg and Boss effortlessly recapture the magic of their previous collaboration, delivering a fresh take on the post-apocalyptic genre. The themes of record collecting and music as a whole tie into the adolescent experience beautifully, and the way these themes are framed in a world where groups of kids battle for survival in an adult-free wasteland is likely to speak to a lot of readers on a lot of different levels. I'm well and truly hooked anyway, and can't wait to see where this story goes next. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Colin Moon Nov 9, 2021

    A creepy, seedy world full of cool kids doing violent stuff, 'Furthest Place' is a book that doesn't just want to present a good story but also the contagious joy of music. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Nov 10, 2021

    The illustration in this issue features a traditional drawing style and cool color palette. The artwork does a good job with matching the tone of the story and I was emotionally engaged throughout the tale. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 10, 2021

    What's the Furthest Place From Here #1 is a hell of a start that delivers an interesting world. The concept isn't anything super new but the comic as a whole has a an aspect about it where it feels really fleshed out. It feels like there's thought put into every small detail. This is an interesting start that should have comic and music fans buzzing. For everyone else, this is absolutely going to be a hit to keep an eye on. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Mike Eakins Oct 23, 2021

    I wasnt prepared for how real this book would feel or how strong the characters would be. I enjoy both Rosenberg and Boss so, it seemed like a no-brainer when this book came up that I would act like it was Black Friday, and I was in line for a tv. This book is super fun; I wish I could talk more about it. I will say this, once you read the book, listen to the Husker Du song, Ill Never Forget You, from their Zen Arcade album. It could be me, but theres something there. Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar Nov 10, 2021

    What's The Furthest Place From Here? #1 is a lot. In terms of the page count and when you look at what happens in the issue. It should go without saying, but electing to churn out a triple-sized issue from the jump is a bold move. Not something I'd like to see with the series consistently, but it worked. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 15, 2021

    A post-apocalyptic look at identity in the wake of the end of the world, this book has a LOT of familiar bits and bobs circling a center that doesn't quite hang together. There's promise in these pages, though. Read Full Review
