    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Dec 27, 2014

    This is a dynamite first issue that gives you a great quick primer on a brand new universe. There's no time wasted on exposition or character backgrounds. Mercado gets right into the meat of the story and doesn't look back. Rocket Salvage has the makings of a great sci-fi adventure. Read Full Review

    This first issue is really promising, and I expect a lot from the next few chapters. Rocket Salvage is a great read, and I recommend it to anyone who is in need of a fresh space adventure. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jason DiGioia Dec 17, 2014

    I can deal with a few character problems, or a few predictable story elements. There's entertaining stuff here, and despite all the obvious content inspirations, RS1 is something unique. You owe it to yourself to give it a read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 19, 2014

    With the shadows cast by a war between the Republic of Galaxies and the Galactic Republic (not unlike the bickering between the Judean People's Front and the People's Front of Judea) and a chin-scratching mystery lurking in the shadows, "Rocket Salvage" #1 is fun, different and worth seeking out. It's not "Star Wars," it's not even "Spaceballs," it's a new look at a new world in a story that immediately seems comfortable and familiar as Mercado introduces readers to Primo Rocket, his glory days and his fallow attempts at finding happiness and redemption.

    Florida Geek Scene - Brian Reed Feb 18, 2015

    This is probably the hardest kind of book to recommend or not. There's nothing wrong with it, but it fails to really blow me away too. It's good, if you like that kind of thing, which I do! So, if you're into racing comics, or stylized future adventures, or just in the mood to check out a Space Dandy-esque world in comic form, pick this up. If not, it's still a pretty good book. You might enjoy it anyway. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Dec 18, 2014

    With a curious cast and a very interesting premise, the opening of Rocket Salvage is a good bit of fun. Issue one is just a tease of what lies ahead as Mercado spends more time allowing the characters and city to breath than on getting plot on the page. But with enough pieces, it makes for a very solid beginning. Read Full Review
