    The Cornelius/Navigator dominated issue of Translucid this month took its time and it really paid off in spades. The Navigator section of this issue was the definite highlight, his existential crisis and incredibly human response to failure were expertly handled. Super heroes all too often feel like enormous figures, almost godlike, but in most cases they are still just people, human beings like you and me. The Navigator is an incredibly flawed and sympathetic character who I cant help but be astonished by. I cant wait to see what next months penultimate issue holds. Read Full Review

    The entire series is a wonder; the writing is exceptional and the artwork divine. The character growth and changes are surprising but layered in causality so make perfect sense while the utter despair of poor Cornelius life is powerful, emotive and scaringly realistic in this masterpiece. Issue four is as strong as all three previous and develops the story in a heart-breaking fashion that will leave readers in the foetal position on the floor crying for their young hero.

    BOOM Studios knows how to put out a series and pick great creators. Weve learned this time and time again and Translucid is no exception. If youre behind on the series and cant find the first three issues, check out Comixology. Failing that, start harassing your shops now to pre-order the trade now. Even if its not solicited yet, just go stand in front of them, or call/email, and harass them until they say theyre going to pre-order it for you. Read Full Review

    This series goes back and forth for me, but I never lose interest. I'm excited to see how it all wraps up, and I'm gonna keep coming back. I'm just a little confused. Read Full Review
