    All-Comic - Matthew Strackbein Sep 23, 2016

    With so many new titles hitting the shelves at local comic shops on a weekly basis, there's no way they are all worth checking out. Eclipse is one of those original, standout concepts that brings the diversity in story so sorely needed in comics and issue #2 makes that even clearer. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Caleb Palmquist Oct 5, 2016

    The scenes on the surface during the day are where artist Giovanni Timpano and colorist Chris Northrop really shine (quite literally). The idea that the characters would need special climate controlled suits just to walk through city streets during the day is incredibly surreal, and the creative team does an excellent job of capturing the concept. The sepia-toned landscapes are broken down and washed out. Even though the backgrounds are recognizable as city streets, they feel alien. Between the intense light, the eerie emptiness of the streets, and Timpano's rough cut figures, every scene on the surface feels as breathless as a Cormac McCarthy novel. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Todd Young Oct 5, 2016

    I had my hopes up for this one, but I don't think my expectations are the reason I feel let down. It's still a compelling world and story. It keeps me interested enough to want to know where its going, but this issue felt like it would come off better if it was read as part of a collected volume, as the story doesn't stand so well on its own. There's some background that will be important moving forward, I'm sure, but by itself this issue isn't particularly memorable. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Oct 7, 2016

    While writer Zack Kaplan and artist Giovanni Timpano delivered a rousing sci-fi world in their first installment of Eclipse, their sophomore effort leans a bit too heavily into the realm of police procedural, rather than fleshing out their evocative high concept further. Read Full Review
