    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson Nov 27, 2014

    Readers looking for a fast-paced quick-fix of a horror comic will likely leave disappointed, but those who take the time to absorb the world that Miller and Granda have created here are in for an absolute treat. The pace is slow, but the mood and characterisation are right on the money, and the emotion packed into the final couple of pages of this issue make issue three an all-but-guaranteed purchase.

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Nov 28, 2014

    There is little to complain about in this issue, nor in this series so far. Its pace is frenetic, meeting that of the attitude of its main character, and similar to the work being done on Gotham Academy, the reader explores the world of Pirouette in an organic and logical way, through her own eyes, without it feeling forced. There are for sure other secrets hiding within this circus, but Pirouette seems like she will have an answer for all of them and the reader will be treated to the experience. Read Full Review

    While I'm not a huge fan of the dark portrayal of the circus, it is certainly believable and enjoyable. We root for Pirouette right from the start, even when it looks like nothing will ever go her way. The art is great and the style is perfect for the theme. This is a solid book, and all those without Coulrophobia should check it out! Read Full Review

    Comix I Read - Boris Roberto Aguilar Nov 26, 2014

    Pirouette continues to be a well done comic book. The story is very original and the art is wonderful. It really gets you thinking about how far down the rabbit hole a person would go to find out where they came from. When someone is desperate for the information they are willing to go to great lengths to get the truth. The overall symbolism contained within this story is so strong that it makes the entire series that much more enjoyable. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of a strong and intelligent story. I would also recommend that you read issue #1. Overall, I cannot wait for issue #3 to see where Mark Miller takes Pirouette. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Thanos T. Theodoropoulos Dec 3, 2014

    A good second issue after a truly great start. The distinct characters and the not-so-jolly circus atmosphere are the biggest draws to the story, but I hope the pace picks up again in the third issue, because there are lots of interesting seeds lying around, unused. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Adam Cadmon Nov 28, 2014

    That said, I can't in good conscious recommend this book to anyone who hasn't read issue one, as this is mostly filler. It's a little troubling to find that so early in the book's run, but I'm confident given Miller's storytelling pedigree that things will get back on track soon. Read Full Review
