Laurelwood isn't supposed to exist. Aleph Null shouldn't be alive. When two impossibles intersect-in a midwestern arena where the future is test-marketed to the present-Aleph will find themselves trapped. Torn between the resistance and the zealots, with a chemical NDA running through their bloodstream, Aleph will have to figure out where the future is coming from, what it's being used for, and where their allegiances lie-all while fighting to keep themselves intact.

    Two issues in, I'm already a dedicated fan because of how Test handles its characters and setting. Aleph's journey is riddled with these fantastic tribulations that resonate to the core, and Sebela and Hickman do them justice in such a captivating way. The story is just beginning, but I'm ready for the long haul. Read Full Review

    Test is exploding and beautiful. I dont know where the story of Aleph is going, but Sebela, Hickman, Saxon, and Otsame-Elhaou have created such a strong opening with these first two issues that Im along for whatever wild, dark, beautiful things they throw at me next. Read Full Review

    Sebela, Hickman, Saxon, and Otsmane-Elhaou use Test #2 to help us realize that "No pain, no gain" can be easily abused, and that it's okay to not be okay. Read Full Review

    Test continues to be a visual onslaught delivering a stream of social commentary housed in a technological futruescape. It is worth dedicating some time to submerge into Sebela's world. Read Full Review

    Great second issue that managed to build upon the reckless confusion of the first. The world building is stellar, and the rabbit hole is getting deeper and deeper. The strength of the creative team is in navigating our fragile minds through the virtual landscape whilst asking big questions, and teasing our perceptions of both the main character’s purpose and morality. It’s artful stuff.
