Comicscore Index
Universal acclaim

Based on 9 critic ratings.

Writer ALEX PAKNADEL (DC vs. Vampires: All Out War, Giga), artist CASPAR WIJNGAARD (HOME SICK PILOTS), and letterer HASSAN OTSMANE-ELHAOU present a primal vision of humanity gone terribly wrong.

In All Against All, it is the distant future. Earth is long gone, but a race of alien conquerors knows as “the Operators” have preserved its most savage animals in an artificial jungle environment they barely understand. With no bodies of their own, the Operators move from world to world, harvesting bodies for the organic exosuits they use to wage their endless wars. Ignored and underestimated by his captors is the habitat’s sole human specimen, Helpless. However, when their efforts to find and harvest an apex predator intensify, he gives them far more than they bargained for.

    A bold new sci-fi world is the last must-read of 2022. The world-building is exciting, the story is tense and the art is incredible. Get in on this before getting left behind!

    Major Spoilers

    All Against All #1 has a terrific set up with a premise that leaves us certain there is significant trouble ahead. It pulls no punches in using the Operators to comment on an Earth that has been destroyed by its own inhabitants. It is uncomfortable to hear them wondering whether there was ever any intelligent life here.

    All Against All #1 is an incredibly well thought out, beautifully rendered sci-fi debut that takes an alternative view of humanity through Alien eyes while smartly commenting on very human themes, spinning a hardcore gritty, grisly sci-fi thriller brought to life with a distinctively punk-flavored art style that is as irresistible to the eye as a stacked pile of candy to a child.

    Caspar and Paknadel draw you into this curious sci-fi world and shake you with a flesh-frazzled visceral grip. Introducing an alien race that feels incredibly original and fresh, there’s a lot here to enjoy besides the enjoyable action. There’s a carnal violence in All Against All not to be missed.

    ‘All Against All’ offers the type of intelligent sci-fi drama usually associated with ‘Star Trek’ in that, science and research are given equal weight to the unpredictability of violent primal instincts. It’s a balancing act of creating a logical foundation for the story with some badass visceral conflict. It’s the perfect right-brain, left-brain storytelling that’ll get your synapses popping.
