    We have no idea where Into the Unbeing is going, but it’s off to such a strong start that we almost don’t want to see what the future holds, in case it isn’t as effective as the debut issue. Still, even if future chapters don’t match the heights of this premiere, it’ll still likely be one of the most compelling genre comics of 2024.

    Capes & Tights

    The debut issue of Into the Unbeing was well written and illustrated by Zac Thompson and Hayden Sherman respectively. The story is a great combination of climate crisis, cosmic horror, and human emotion. The cliffhanger of an ending to the debut issue leaves us wanting so much more in such a good way. Let’s get lost in a cosmic wilderness.

    This series premiere is a satisfying slow burn that rewards readers as they explore alongside the ensemble of characters. Watch your step—you never know what you might wake up.

    Nerd Initiative

    Overall, Into The Unbeing has me locked in and starving for more. The use of real science with physical anomalies and unnatural environments make everything feel grounded and familiar while also alien and almost supernatural. The characters also feel real, tangible, and relatable. There is something so much bigger brewing underneath all of this and it’s going to be a pleasure to watch the layers being peeled back to reveal it all.

    The Fandom Post

    Into the Unbeing has an interesting setup and concept behind it and I’m curious to see where Thompson goes with it. Right now, it’s pretty standard stuff in that we’ve seen the setup before. The visuals are what’s carrying it and that certainly does a good job in selling it as something that’s going to be messed up once we dig into the reality of what thi solace is. The cast hasn’t given me anyone to like at the moment and Hildur writing about them while processing the journey just made it clear she thinks everyone is pretty terrible in different ways. Thompson’s works have gone with this approach before and the payoff can be pretty spectacular so I’m curious to see what’s next as we literally go down the hole.

    Major Spoilers

    Into The Unbeing #1 appears to be establishing itself as another cosmic horror comic, although the setting and the premise are doing enough to set it apart from the others, unfortunately some lackluster characters are keeping it from being better.

    Graphic Policy

    Into the Unbeing #1 teases the weird and wtf and mixes it all with dread and tension. You know things are going to go wrong as the team sets up the debut with moments that are familiar and plentiful in the horror genre. But, even packed with the familiar, the comic will leave readers guessing as to what happens next.

    Comic Watch

    The series’ first issue proceeds slowly. While Earth itself may be a horror show, there are almost no traditional horror elements. But the early pages create an ominous feeling that follows the story from start to finish. Into The Unbeing #1 starts slowly but hints at otherworldly and disturbing visual horrors.
