“While fans might know him from his adept handling of diverse superhero characters, they still might be surprised by the subtlety and suspense Underground #1 provides. Neither Lieber’s facility with normal humans nor his status as a superb storytelling craftsman are anything new, but he seems to be exceptionally matched with Parker for this project. The characters seem real, the pace subtly ensnares you, and the project is filled with potential.”

“This is the way comic books should always be done; sharp dialogue, crisp art and dynamic colors all mixed in equal, complimentary parts. In case I’m not getting my point across, this is a five-star, two thumbs up kind of book that you really don’t want to miss. Underground #1 is my favorite single issue so far this year and I’m confident it’ll be yours. “
Joseph Dilworth, Pop Culture Zoo

“I find the whole story setup very interesting. It highlights a very topical conflict when it comes to caves, that is the age-old commerce vs. conservation argument, and does so unobtrusively within the context of the story. Characterization is strong, as is to be expected from Parker.”

“I had the chance to read a preview copy, and I was impressed by how quickly I got to know and care about the characters, as well as the (literal) cliffhanger. I can’t wait to read more!”
Johanna Draper Carlson, Comics Worth Reading

“Lieber here has a knack for facial expression that I think is only matched by Kevin Maguire and Terry Moore. Just wonderful stuff. Parker’s script really surprised me, too. Coming into this having read a lot of his Marvel work, Mysterius the Unfathomable, and The Interman, I was surprised by just how down to earth this was. I knew he’d be able to handle the action elements well, but wouldn’t you know it, he can write reg’lar folks, too… this is a great book by talented creators. If you like some of your comics in the Queen & Country / Whiteout / real-life adventure vein, you’d do well to check this out.”

“…a slow burn early on that leads to an explosive finish that has the reader begging for the next issue. Underground strikes a delicate balance between plot and character development and immerses the reader into the town of Marion.”
Stumptown Trade Review

“Parker has managed to find time in his busy schedule of revamping the EXILES book (which I am loving, by the way) to come up with this grounded and interesting story. Lieber’s art is more than decent; gritty and real without being too dark or jaded, synonymous with the script, and as stated before, the opening sequence hit a very haunting note. If you are interested in nature, be it human or earth related, UNDERGROUND is worth checking out.”
Avril Brown, Comics Waiting Room

“Parker’s writing is great here. He does a good job in Underground with the many different aspects of the story. Parker’s control of the romantic dialogue, witty banter, and mysterious foreshadowing does the comic well. Lieber is no slouch either as his artwork really brings Wesley and the cast alive with the excellent detail in both facial features and background work.”
