    Multiversity Comics - Rowan Grover Jan 11, 2018

    "Atlas & Axis" #1, like others of its genre, is a labour of love: infectiously merry character work, breakneck pacing, and beautiful art make this comic one to keep an eye on. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed it! This is just the beginning of the story, but with striking art and a quest with lots of twists and turns along the way, I'm anxious to see where it goes from here. Read Full Review

    While light in story, the comic provides an endearing nod to older comics and cartoon characters. Read Full Review

    Atlas & Axis #1 is not going to be the first item you grab from your local shop this week but you totally should nab yourself a copy! This a odd but engaging ride that's just getting started so by all means, especially if you love dogs, you owe it to yourself: add this to your pull-list. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Jan 9, 2018

    Titan Comics have taken the original 72-page albums and cut them in half for the American market. Given that the robust formatting of the European album offers way more bang for your buck than the U.S. floppies, this is a disappointing move. The story also frustratingly cuts off at an arbitrary point around the 36-page mark. Despite this, the story itself remains as strong as it did in its original format, and this release should ultimately earn these puppers a few more fans across the pond. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Jan 10, 2018

    Atlas & Axis #1 is a fun little romp through a fantasy world I'm hoping I'll be interested in returning to next month. I want to say I'm ready for more, but while I like what's here and think there's some cool world building going on, this one feels a bit more "kids property" than what I'd like. It's a fine cartoon, but I don't have the nostalgic connection to it like I do with Redwall. Worth a look if you got kids; worth a look if you want something fun but not all that intellectually stimulating. Read Full Review
