    Broken World #2 may not be quite as captivating as the tense first issue, but it's certainly an amazing continuation. Giving great depth to our characters, whilst also teasing the direction this series is heading in, there is a lot to get immersed in. Read Full Review

    This book is one that I love to keep up with. The series is home to a unique and interesting plot that we ourselves can put our lives in to think of what choices we would make if put in Elena’s situation(s). There was some foreshadowing to the use of weaponry against Elena and her two friends, so we’ll have to read issue #3 to find out what happens! Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - Sarah Swift Jul 6, 2015

    This series is a rather short one with only 4 issues planned so the writer seems to be focusing on the emotional journey for Elena and those around her instead of filling in specifics of her journey and I think it makes a lot of sense doing this as it keeps things more compact and exciting for the reader and it helps to make Elena a much more interesting and relatable character. I'm very much looking forward to next month's issue. Read Full Review

    The strong second issue the first demanded has been duly delivered. We get flashbacks, emotion, drama and a pretty nifty cliffhanger of an ending. The apocalyptic rollercoaster rolls on. Read Full Review

    Barbiere explores the themes of grief and helplessness in an intriguing and highly original story. Read Full Review

    Barbiere has a great story at hand. It has lots of different ways it can go. And almost has this survival of the fittest appeal. You really want to see where Elena goes next. I find myself after one issue attached to her. I haven't even met her family, so it does seem odd of why they are not in the picture. Maybe they chose to live without her. You would like to think that she is doing all this work for them that maybe her husband is fighting hard for her. But something makes me think there is more to this family and definitely more to Elena. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Daniel Gehen Jul 1, 2015

    This second issue suggests that the writer would perhaps be better off steering away from a direct consideration of the headier themes raised by his work, instead allowing them to develop more naturally whilst focusing on the miniseries as a high-stakes pulp adventure " an area where this issue excels.

    Big letdown after a great first issue. It's a retreading of a worn out storyline.
