    2021: LOST CHILDREN #1 uses great world building and the building of relationships to tell us about the plot and characters. We also see contrast through detail, and coloring that makes the comic real for readers. Read Full Review

    That's Not Current - Daniel Kilmurray Jun 21, 2018

    2021: Lost Children #1 is an excellent slow-burn comic that does well at delivering a deep and meaningful message that will hopefully continue in the coming issues despite the generic 3D-rendered art that accompanies it. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 1, 2018

    2021: Lost Children #1 is far from a bad comic, and it has a lot of good ideas. It just needs more personality, both in terms of the characters and the visuals. I find myself liking a lot of it and ready to recommend it. However, that recommendation is tentative and relies on you being ready for a slower and longer comic with a price hike. If youre up for that, feel free to check it out. Even then, its not a must-read. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jul 11, 2018

    The art is the best part. It's expressive and it's clean. I love the design work too except for the kids, who look too darn creepy for me. All in all, it's a book that doesn't make much in the way of choices story wise. But the art will make you stick with it. It may even make you skip reading the words, especially if bored.
