    The only downside to this comic is that it's so self-contained that if you're looking for more information on Unfollow's 140, you're going to have to go online to put the pieces together. But as far as done-in-ones go, you could do a lot worse than Unfollow #7. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams May 4, 2016

    Once again, UNFOLLOW remains an absolutely essential purchase, for its sheer wanton creativity and unpredictability if nothing else. Were now seven issues in, and theres a feeling that weve only barely scratched the surface of whats to come. This is absolutely note-perfect ensemble storytelling, blending humour, violence, human drama and horror into one truly addictive cocktail. Buy it. Buy it now! Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze May 4, 2016

    Unfollow #7 gives you more reason to care for Courtney if you didn't already. She is fun, she has depth to her, and a fresh perspective of the world around her. She really represents the messed up world we live in both in real life and through various forms of media. The shallow life of a celebrity mocked. Because of the quality work they have put into these past two issues, I wouldn't mind if the next still focused on a single character or Akira's island. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori May 4, 2016

    Ultimately, Williams has a huge canvas to paint with the 138 (and dropping) in Unfollow, and its already clear that he aims for the kind of sophisticated characterization that mirrors the best television dramas and serial storytelling of the past decade. And if the first seven issues and that presumed pedigree are any indication, this is going to be the book to watch for a long time to come. Do yourself a favor and catch up. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 5, 2016

    This issue serves as an excellent character study of Courtney, a rich society girl who holds nothing but contempt for the vapid, celebrity-obsessed masses who swirl around her. Her tragic past and troubled personality help t balance out her more self-absorbed qualities. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Chris Smith May 10, 2016

    With so many characters floating around (presumably about 136 we have yet to be introduced to) it was a wise choice to change the artist from issue to issue. Artists Marguerite Sauvage's art is a perfect fit for Courtney's rampant lifestyle. Her style is slightly reminiscent of Bruce Timm; cartoonish but only slightly so. The constant shifting line-up provides a change in tone every issue, perfect for the massive line up of characters to come. Unfollow #7 doesn't provide the suspenseful thrills that the earlier issues pulled off so well, but it is obvious that Williams and company are playing a long game. This series is well paced, allowing us plenty of time with each character, which will make their inevitable deaths all the more painful to watch. Unfollow is still one of the most exciting series on the shelves right now, and definitely worth picking up. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards May 4, 2016

    Unfollow #7 is a big step up for the series, providing an important look into the backstories of one of the main characters, with some lovely looking artwork to go along with it. It's fascinating to read and it's easy to see how Courtney turned out the way she did. While there have been a few problems along the way, Unfollow is turning out to be one of the more intriguing character dramas currently in comics. Read Full Review
