With great power comes great responsibility, but who has time for that in the New York City art scene? Tim is finally realizing that his powers are not just a manifestation of his manic depression, and what better way to use them than to exact total revenge on the hipsters and jocks that have tormented him? Tune in to issue #2 of POLARITY where Tim defames and debases hipsters as only SAY ANYTHING frontman Max Bemis could write. Each issue comes with a free download for a new original song written and performed by Max Bemis!

    Polarity #2 shows us that the series' creators have a lot in store for us, and reminds us yet again why we should be checking out titles outside of the big name publishers. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White May 2, 2013

    Overall, "Polarity" #2 is a strong follow-up to an excellent first issue, and it's got so much in it " humour, a bit of social criticism, and yes, something of a superhero story " that (hipsters be horrified!) it's actually got wide appeal. Be sure to get onboard with this one before it's cool. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Kevin Mak May 6, 2013

    Max Bemis and Jorge Coelho deliver a powerful comic with Polarity. With a combination of solid dialogue and in-depth conversations, Max Bemis portrays a smart, but troubled individual with Tim. With Jorge Coelho's art direction, Polarity is a solid piece of storytelling. Although Tim as an all powerful being does not provide much conflict at the moment, the comic represents a modern day superhero origin story. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - TylerM May 3, 2013

    Oh, it took ten pages into the second issue for a Say Anything reference to come up. I was hoping it wouldn't happen, but it was pretty obtuse. I also may have been looking too hard. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Jen 'MissJ' Aprahamian May 1, 2013

    POLARITY is still an interesting read, especially with the new twist that the story involves superpowers, but Issue #2 just doesn't bring it as strongly as Issue #1 did. Half the story awaits in the remaining two issues, and I'll be keeping up just to see how much of this was real and how much was the product of Tim's fluctuating brain chemistry. I'm hoping to see him truly step into the hero role he's been set to play; the payoff will be much stronger if he ditches the shallow stuff and do something of significance. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal May 3, 2013

    Initially I was beyond excited for this book and definitely over-hyped the first issue for myself, but I learned from that and came into this issue with lower expectations. For the third issue, I don't know how much lower my expectations can go. You've probably already blindly bought this comic and if you didn't and were thinking about it, I have a logic chart that we can follow. Do you like Say Anything/Max Bemis? If yes then go ahead and buy since you probably already did. If you've never heard of him or the band, then give it a pass. Also billing this as a new take on the superhero genre is like billing Archie as a fresh take on the life of a teenager. Read Full Review
