    AIPT - Chris Coplan Sep 24, 2019

    Relics has earned my attention as much as my caution. There's a lot to hope for this book to eventually display or achieve, but that could just as easily not be the case as we're left with more mid-tier Y.A. I'll keep reading regardless, but like dealing with actual teenagers, I only have so much time and patience. Read Full Review

    I’m giving this opening issue a solid 7. It was an easy, and enjoyable read with enough of a last moment twist to imply that the concept could be thrilling fun.

    A small moment when Derek is noted as having green eyes, but shown to have blue puzzled me and I wasn’t sure if it was a clue or a small error.

    After one issue there is enough to whet my appetite but not enough to make an out and out decision on if this book will resonate with me.
