Long after the rock out of space struck the world and turned it all to dust, in Bakerstown stands the last Radio Station on the planet. Radio Apocalypse broadcasting into the unknown, a beacon in the dark for those who wander the lost places. Now change is coming to Bakerstown. Among the refugees flocking into an already precarious settlement, an orphan boy Rion, caught in an indiscretion, will twine his fate with the Radio Station. And in doing so, begin this mixtape of love and heartbreak and interminable hope. This soundtrack to the end of the world.

    Ran V and Anand RK's 'Apocalypse Radio' #1 focuses on the last radio station in existence and the community that has built up around it. A beacon of hope as well as a source of comfort for those in earshot. And a salvation for some. Read Full Review

    Ill leave that decision to you. Single issues, all at once, buy the trade, buy both, but you should most definitely buy it. Read Full Review

    An innovative piece of art that, through enchanting visuals and a radio station's buzz at its center, becomes a story that you can feel. It definitely takes some narrative risks, and I'm intrigued to see where it would follow said risks. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jan 1, 1970

    Radio Apocalypse #1 puts its own spin on the end of the world, mixing a killer soundtrack with sci-fi and horror elements. If you're looking for a new series to read or a new take on the post-apocalyptic genre, I definitely recommend giving this series a look and curating a new playlist with each issue. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Nov 15, 2021

    Some many dismiss Radio Apocalypse #1 as a gimmick-driven comic that uses music to distinguish itself from all the other post-apocalyptic comics on the shelves. Your mileage may vary, but I personally think the comic stands on its own even if you don't elect to play along with the interactive element. In either case, the end of the world never sounded so good. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Nov 17, 2021

    Radio Apocalypse #1 is like the comic book equivalent a five minute opening track on a concept album establishing the visual language and color palette as well as the setting and key players. Ram V, Anand RK, and Anisha walk a tight rope between hope and hopelessness throughout the story and use seemingly throwaway dialogue between characters to set up the main brunt of the plot. (For now.) Compared to the areas outside it that are seen through the blurry, pain-filled POV of Cali and Tan, Bakerstown is pretty damn idyllic, but the darkness is coming. Read Full Review
