    Word Of The Nerd - Zina Hutton Aug 31, 2016

    Kim & Kim #2 has all of my favorite things: cool, strong, andQUEERwomen in main roles, necromancy, and some serious potential when it comes to worldbuilding. It's also ridiculously cute and has fantastic character designs. If that even remotely sounds like your thing, catch up now before issue three comes out! Read Full Review

    Overall Issue #2 was a great find and a wonderful read and, I will be back again to see how the story plays out and how two of my new fave female comic book bad asses get through their mission, to save Tom Quilt and get him and the other drug mule slaves El Scorcho is holding hostage free.

    Newsarama - C.K. Stewart Sep 8, 2016

    Kim & Kim remains a must-read title for the summer; this team has created an impressively rich and vibrant world in just two issues, and it will be interesting to see if they're able to give it a similarly satisfying conclusion with just two issues left. Read Full Review

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Aug 25, 2016

    Kim & Kim #2 follows up to the first issue well, giving spectacular art with strong development. Vissagio develops the overall plot well, while giving readers enough curveballs and fun editions that will make for exciting reads and re-reads. The character work is top notch, making both Kims, Tom and more feel and sounds like fully realized characters. The art is cartoony, but wonderfully expressive and vibrant. Cabrera and Aguirre seem to have a perfect marriage of art and color that will not be denied. The search for Lady Babylon ends up being so much more than what readers will expect and the payoff and cliffhanger are definitely worth it. A fun read! Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Emma Houxbois Aug 31, 2016

    Theres a lot of ways for Kim & Kim to refine itself as it continues, namely finding ways to tighten up the slack when the narration and dialog overrun the flow of the page or pushing the art to lead both the eye across the page and the reader through the story more directly. Regardless of those shortcomings, it remains a refreshing and accessible title that the entire industry could stand to learn some lessons from. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Jay Loving Sep 1, 2016

    Highly recommended. Kim & Kim is an important book, and not because of it's somewhat ground breaking dealings with gender. It's simply a good story, with unique, complex characters who are, after all, like any of us. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 3, 2016

    Kim & Kim is still just getting started, but it's definitely putting its best foot forward. The comic and its world are building nicely, and I hope for even more awesomeness going forward. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Brandy Dykhuizen Sep 12, 2016

    While the Kims don't take "no" for an answer, they are (eventually) aware of their restrictions and open to listening and learning. Tom Quilty may not be any closer to home yet, but you can bet the girls will invent a way to put as much space between him and the dreaded El Scorcho as an electric guitar and a space van will allow. Quantum jams are go. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hctor A Sep 12, 2016

    Overall, I had some qualms with this issue but it still had a lot of good things going for it. The world-building is great and the characters are very endearing. More importantly, it is a lot of fun. Read Full Review
