The first volume of Elwood contains 11 issues, including one two-parter, which were all released in May 2014. Volume 1 is the first of two volumes that do not have reliably-recorded release dates for each issue.


Volume 1 is one of the least-serialized volumes of Elwood, meaning that each issue is almost completely self-contained and there are no overarching story-lines. Some details from past issues do appear in later issues, however, such as the bullet wound in Muffy's forehead and the stitches in Buster's neck.


This volume was initially praised for its originality and comedy, but its art was criticized. As the series continued, retrospective critiques of Volume 1 were more harsh, and it came to be considered greatly inferior to the most recent issues.
