Civilization is a lie. Hidden deep in our genes is the truth. And it is slowly clawing its way to the surface. Olivia Kade knows the truth, and she has become the prophet of the coming collapse. Her book, SATYR, is an international bestseller, and it is being blamed for acts of senseless violence and bloodshed all over the world. Olivia's own life is in danger from those who have read her work. Determined to conduct a book tour, she hires security professional Connor Wilson to act as her bodyguard. She only has one requirement: he cannot read her work.

    It has been a while since I last looked through a Vault book. It is good to see that during my time away the quality that Vault brings to the comic book shop is still there. With #BuyIndieComicDay on 31st July, just around the corner, Vault Comics, along with The Last Book You'll Ever Read, are both well worth your attention. Read Full Review

    There's a lot of familiar material here if you're someone that has dealt with lengthy conversations about morality, violence, and the thin layer of civilization that in the eyes of some is a form of control to keep us docile. Olivia's book looks to be something that has triggered events so that it's causing people to push away that veil and they're thoroughly into the violence that feels very out of character for them. I'm curious as to what direction Bunn will take it but I quickly took to Kade and everything about her. It didn't hurt that Leiz's artwork is fantastic and I really liked the design for Olivia herself, as well as the world she inhabits. I'm definitely intrigued to see what the endgame is for this.

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 28, 2021

    The Last Book You'll Ever Read is a strong start to a series with a unique premise and a devilish deeper meaning. Most of all, it comes with a smart introduction that draws you in and won't let you go. Read Full Review

    On the whole, this isnt a bad first issue but its not a great first issue. I think it has the possibility to be a good series when taken as a whole, so while I probably wont collect the single issues, I will still more than likely wait and grab the collected edition when it comes out.

    Multiversity Comics - Elias Rosner Aug 2, 2021

    "The Last Book You'll Ever Read" #1 is a slight first issue that would be better suited as the start of an OGN. The art is well-suited for the book in all respects but the ideas have yet to show why they are unique and deserving of attention. Fans of the genre may have fun but for those burnt out by "what if moral panic X held weight" type books, I would skip this one. Read Full Review
