    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Aug 7, 2015

    The only real problem with the issue is that it may make new readers feel a bit lost. They will wonder if they are supposed to have a familiarity with the character. Otherwise, Krul does an excellent job this issue. The narrative and exposition was great. The art is simply some of the best I seen in comics " period. There is a great amount of mystique and wonder for the future of this series and it looks to be a fun ride. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jun 10, 2014

    It's not deep, but it's very entertaining, with strong visuals - a battle for survival, fighting against the environment (and a huge wild animal) - and it's a lot of old-school fun. Read Full Review

    Herotaku - Frankie Rodriguez Jun 3, 2014

    Jirni is back and ready to travel all over in order to find her mother. The fact how far Ara is willing to go is displayed in this issue. And while a bit on the breezy side, it is still a solid story with a strong main heroine. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jun 4, 2014

    Jirni (vol.2) #1 doesn't break new ground necessarily but it proves the worth of the franchise as it mines into the far reaches of this epic and compelling quest. I'm sold and this comes recommended. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Aug 7, 2015

    The epic visuals of this book illustrate an average story, which is a shame. I'm going to continue to follow this five issue series in the hopes that what occurred in this issue is leading to something big, but I've got to have a story that is strong as the visuals. Read Full Review

    SnapPow.com - Harrison Rawdin Aug 5, 2015

    Jirni Vol. 2 #1 is a solid jump-on point that gets the ball rolling for the next leg of this adventure. There are some flaws but never enough to derail a title that's eager to expand the scope of its own already diverse realm. Read Full Review

    The detailed artwork and vibrant coloring really transports you to Ara's world, as well as the breathtaking illustration that reflects Ara's bold and soft nature. Every page is cover art quality Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 6, 2015

    Overall I enjoyed this book, mostly for the art and for the possibilities the character holds. I wish the story was more interesting and that it didn't waste an issue establishing nothing. Will we ever go back to this location? No. Will we deal with these creatures again? No. Is the cargo the important part of the story? Yes, but that's not something I care about. Maybe the next chapter has something new to offer, but this is feeling like a forced sequel to a story that had a natural conclusion. Why else would you spend an entire issue giving shallow character development and establishing a setting that will never be used again and wasn't cool to begin with? Read Full Review
