    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Mar 12, 2014

    I can't recommend this book enough. Granted there is a message and its present and clear throughout the issue, but Miner gets it right by not being preachy or shoving it down the readers throat. He doesn't forget that there's a story to be told and he makes the story enjoyable (if not also heavy) to read. Even sad stories should be enjoyable to read and in fact the best ones are. If you missed the first volume you should definitely give this volume a chance. It's an incredible comic book that's perfect for the medium. Read Full Review

    Stash My Comics - Leo Johnson Mar 11, 2014

    While the story might feel a bit rushed in places, Miner and Earth Crisis write something that makes you think, which so few comics do. Even as someone who isn't involved in the culture depicted, it's an interesting read and one that ultimately functions as more than just a simple comic story. While it isn't perfect, it's a solid comic that has a message and accomplishes more than most, all while it manages to be an enjoyable read. For anyone interested, print and digital copies can be purchased at the Black Mask Studios store. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Jen 'Miss J' Aprahamian Mar 12, 2014

    The newest inclusion in the LIBERATOR line keeps up the "comics for a cause" spirit of the original, and it's not afraid to demand that readers think about their world. Combining music, story, and a strong message, SALVATION OF THE INNOCENTS will make you want to cuddle the nearest animal -- and possibly adopt a rescue pet. It's not a series for the faint of heart, but heart is definitely something that this book carries in spades. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Schenker Mar 14, 2014

    Miner has a solid second volume in the making. Again he puts together a socially relevant and “political” comic without being overtly preaching. While moments are shocking, the story is entertainment with a message. Pulling that off is impressive. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Forrest C. Helvie Mar 13, 2014

    Make no mistake " this book looks to take a stand on an emotionally charged issue and will not be to everyone's tastes. Nevertheless, it is thought-provoking whatever side of the fence one sits on, and the medium can only stand to benefit from more works that challenge readers to think. Read Full Review
