    Florida Geek Scene - Zackery Cote Jul 24, 2013

    I really can't say enough good things about Wild Blue Yonder. It certainly fits a specific Steampunk genre, but there's so many good elements that you don't even have to be a fan of Steampunk to enjoy it. The characters, artwork, and story all blend together in such fantastic harmony that you can't help but feel something special is happening here. There's a distinct lack of blatant exposition throughout the majority of the comic, and the characters are all so delightfully, wonderfully written that you just can't keep from becoming attached to them, even as you know, much like Cola, that some of them may not have the greatest prospects for future mortality. Now if only Cola could do something about that tragic haircut… Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jul 24, 2013

    I really think that a lot of people are missing out on this series due to how quite the coverage has been on it. I think it's one of the top books that IDW is publishing and frankly a very different take on the apocalyptic genre. There may not have been any dogfights in this issue, but they're coming; they're coming in a big way. Don't miss out on this series. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - George Chimples Jul 31, 2013

    If you're looking for a fresh original world, and you like post-apocalyptic settings, dogfighting, jet packs and/or good comic book art, there will be something in Wild Blue Yonder that appeals to you. This is only a five issue miniseries, and I wish it were longer. Already, these are characters and this is a world that I would like to be reading about for some time to come. Wild Blue Yonder #2 earns a lofty four out of five stars. Check it out. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Mario Miranda Nov 5, 2013

    If you're a fan of the Rocketeer or are just think guys rocketing around with a rocket pack sounds cool, I'd highly suggest you give this title a try. I'm not sure where this story is going but I've without a doubt enjoying the ride. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Jul 26, 2013

    Overall, this is a well-executed second chapter to an engaging, if not terribly unconventional, sci-fi series. Next issue promises to be a whopper " it's 27 pages long " so if you like a little more bang for your $3.99, you may well get it! Meantime, fans of the steampunk aesthetic " even if there is very little steam involved " should definitely give this series a try. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jul 24, 2013

    The issue ends with a very unsurprising, for me anyway, “twist” ending. This, combined with a slowly growing frustration of not knowing the bigger picture, took me out of the comic. I love Cola and the heroes in this comic, plus the jetpack wearing “bullets”, but I need more as far as what this world is about outside of the very small melodrama we've seen so far. Obviously time will tell if this series opens up, but based on how good it looks and how great the ideas are within it so far, I'm rather optimistic this could end up being a must buy series.
