    Unleash The Fanboy - Daniel Alvarez Oct 23, 2012

    Overall, while not the super fantastic five star closure I was expecting, still a fine issue. We got some pretty great writing, (aside from the Kesselfiasco) the dialogue between Maya and the chief was very good. We got a little giant monster action, and a rather nice ending. If you haven't been reading Debris, I strongly recommend you give the trade paperback a shot when it releases. Read Full Review

    If you haven't had a chance to read this series from start to finish I would suggest picking up all four issues, or wait for the trade paperback to come out. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Augie De Blieck Jr. Oct 26, 2012

    "Debris" does not feel like a story created to set up a new franchise or to create marketable intellectual property. It is, instead, a concise short story with a lead female warrior character you can root for. It's beautifully illustrated with moments that will make you stop to stare at the images. Good story combined with strong art: what more do you want from your comics? Read Full Review

    Geekality - Julius Freeman Oct 23, 2012

    I feel Rossmo's absence hurt the actual book because, nothing against Mr. Geini, some of the artwork didn't look finished. I really expected this issue to be Goliath from Six Flags Magic Mountain, but instead got Space Mountain from Disneyland. It's still a good roller coaster ride, but it doesn't compare to the ferocity that is Goliath. Read Full Review

    Its sad to say goodbye to a fearless, strong, and determined female protagonist like Maya. Shes a champion, a saviour of humankind, shes the real deal! Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Oct 26, 2012

    Taking the four issues together, Debris is still one of the strongest and most original mini-series we've seen in a while. What will be especially good will be the inevitable trade collection, where all of this saga can be read in its cinematic whole. The lack of a prolonged ending should be a minor quibble, and perhaps it is simply that we didn't want this series to end so soon. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Oct 24, 2012

    Sadly, I can't say the same for the art. It's not even second class. It's coach. Riley Rossmo's stunning visuals have been one of the books highlights. For reasons that I can't fathom, Rossmo merely provides breakdowns in this issue and has colorist Owen Gieni produce the finished art. The end result is a muddled, unfinished look that sucks the heart right out of the issue. The book really falls apart towards the end, when it should be at its strongest. The epic battle looks like a mess. It's a damn shame, because before this issue hit stands I had Debris pegged as one of the best series of the year. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Oct 26, 2012

    Kurtis J. Wiebe and Riley Rossmo's Debris was a rather large departure from their previous work on Green Wake. But it was also a welcome one. This story is built far more on action scenes and beautiful landscapes, providing for a different type of stunning art. A sci-fi tale of adventure and discovery, Debris was definitely an enjoyable, if slightly rushed, comic book. Read Full Review
