Earth is an ancient myth, long forgotten. Now, the word of the god-like Celestials is absolute, and they rule with brutal efficiency. When Joss, an Engineward, discovers and reactivates the head of an ancient ghoulem, she finds all is not as intended. Her destiny-and that of her world-lies somewhere far beyond the borders of her shantytown.

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Jul 30, 2020

    Borrowing from such popular SF tropes mined from DUNE to BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, ENGINEWARD has potential to be a worthwhile saga, but it's going to take a few more issues to make that declaration. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 15, 2020

    Engineward gives us a lot to take in here and attempts to frame it with some context but it's a sliver of the big picture. I think it tries to introduce too much in the first issue and instead should have been focused on anything but Cancer and his side of things so that we really get to know Ichabod and Joss' world more as we get a good bit of it here and feel grounded through it.

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Jul 19, 2020

    Come for the creative endeavor, and stay for the chance to watch a rebellion build over future issues. ENGINEWARD #1 doesn't do anything particularly new within the boundaries of this particular genre, but it does it with attention to detail, entertaining dialog, and the promise of a satisfying and cathartic finale at the end of the series.

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jul 25, 2020

    Engineward #1 closes with what appears to be a startling discovery being made. While not nearly enough context is yet present to know just how big of an impact it will leave, the creative team here has delivered a strong enough story that Id be interested in potentially finding out.

    Bleeding Cool - Theo Dwyer Jul 19, 2020

    Engineward #1 is a bit heavy-handed with the world-building, but it counters that with interesting concept, cast, and art. Also... damn, that lettering is inventive. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 14, 2020

    This is an unfortunate example of a story having the right pieces, but making it too hard for readers to dive in and enjoy the story for what it is and what it is doing. When I reread the synopsis and the captions I liked this story a lot more, but the delivery is too clunky to make it recommended reading. There are 11 more issues to go through and plenty of time for this ship to right itself, but on the onset, I was left underwhelmed.  Read Full Review
