The journey to the island doesnt go quite as Dave expected when he meets hungover heiress Courtney, but you wont hear him complaining. As each of the 140 arrives, social media mogul and Headspace mastermind Laurence Farrell has a very special message for his new heirs. Also, did anyone notice that the app changed to 139? Whats that all about?

    Unfollow is a masterpiece. Rob Williams and his art team have created something here that is as imaginative as an Oscar winning film, but is believable enough to be a documentary. The social commentary is beautiful and rife with touching moments that keep the series grounded in reality and allows the creators to embolden their message. Its clear that Unfollow is just getting started, and weve all just been reminded to hang on for dear life. Read Full Review

    Together, the two creators are weaving a saga that's part Social Network, part Battle Royale and very much worthy of your attention. Read Full Review

    Overall, Unfollow is a series with an undoubtedly brilliant hook which, while it may have taken a little longer than expected to finally its full stride, finally seems poised to deliver on the potential of its premise. The basic concept offers up a lot of unique moral and societal questions, something that " given the diversity of the 140 (or should that be 139?) characters, ranging from podgy businessmen to skilled hunters " I'm expecting to be fully explored in the issues to come. Slick, tense and wonderfully scripted, Unfollow is a truly gripping series thus far, and with it surely only being a matter of time before things break down into a social media-inspired Battle Royale, you can definitely count me in for the rest of this twisted journey.

    I'm assuming that Unfollow #4 is going to have like a major murder early on and honestly, as horrible as it sounds, I can't wait to see who bites the bullet. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jan 6, 2016

    Unfollow #3 ends on a note where things seem like they're picking up and that big things will be happening. However, the remainder of the issue is more of the same. Decent writing, artwork that struggles with depicting characters, and a story that's moving too slow for its own good. I'm still very interested personally with seeing where this series goes next and what will happen. However, it's very hard to recommend it when there are just better executed and more exciting comics out there, especially in a monthly format. Read Full Review

    This was a book that I was very unsure of after the first two issues. It could have either gone way up or way down in overall quality; because there just wasn’t a lot of story to go off of early on. But with the third issue things got a little clearer, and we actually get to see some of the members of the 140 interacting, and the end of the issue we get the big reveal as to what our “benevolent” dying billionaire has in store for the 140 (which after last issue is the 139, but I’ll get to that part later). I had been concerned from the beginning that this book would be a bit too “preachy” and try too hard to be modern, because the incorporation of a twitter-analogue and the idea that certain people are picked at random to share in the social media creator’s billions as part of his dying wish all seemed to be a bit on-the-nose, and it reminded me of all the stories of late that try too hard to shoehorn in “hip” ideas and to force themselves to be modern and topical, when things in comics should (try, at least) to happen naturally; or at least as “naturally” as anything can in a comic book. The opening pages showing some of the events in Ferguson, while well done and not feeling “exploitative” will most likely be the kind of thing that is utterly lost on another generation of comic book readers who may go back and read this story 40-50 years from now. But besides that point, I really liked the way that opening scene ended, with Dave and Devon (the brothers from the first two issues) standing in Ferguson when Devon asked Dave “how many rich folk do you see in Ferguson right now?” which is something that really floored me, personally. I am a Midwestern boy, born and raised in Central Illinois, and have been to St. Louis more times than I can count. It is roughly 2 ½ hours by car for me to drive into STL proper, and to think that the kinds of things occurring “a world away” in Ferguson were really happening only a few hours from my ho
