    Graphic Policy - Ashley Leckwold Nov 17, 2016

    I recently compared Mother Panic to the comic series The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys in terms of pace and tone, and I was nearly ready to do the same for Motor Crush. However, that isnt true. Its more like the album companion My Chemical Romance released three years prior titled Danger Days. Frenetic and joyful even in the darkness, Motor Crush is about finding your place in the world and trying to survive set against a futuristic backdrop of motorcycle racing. While the first issue is mostly set-up, it refuses to let off the gas as you follow Domino along on her journey and the jolt of the ending leaves you wanting another ride as soon as it is over. When the first issue comes out on December 7, you owe it to yourself to take a ride with Motor Crush. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Richard Wanderman Jr. Nov 6, 2016

    Overall this is a fun read. There is much to be said about just letting oneself go in for a ride, like a roller coaster that keeps you off-balance by spinning twirls and sharp, hard cornering turns until it finally comes to rest with a jerk. Also, like that favorite amusement park ride, you nearly always know what's coming up, where the loops are, where the deep dives and heavy climbs, and where the twists will shove you hard against your seat and shoulder harness, but you won't mind it one bit as it's exactly what you got on the ride for in the first place.

    Comic Bastards - Justin Wood Nov 21, 2016

    I like everything so far, but it's also thin ground to be building on, reminding me a bit of Arcana's Rocket Salvage; entertaining but not memorably distinctive from the slew of stories it drew its inspiration from. Frankly, I think it's also that popcorn is just a hard sell for me this year, not getting enough 4-color nutrition as it is to be dropping hard won cash on amusing shooty-bang-bangs. Still, I will be back, because this is the best new Image property I've read this year I think, keeping my interest and leaving me looking forward to expanding the world and characters further. At the very least the authors knew they had actually made a book to go with their elevator pitch, which is more than I can say for some. Read Full Review
