    With four issues done, I am glad to say that I am reading this title. The fact that Ken Garing does every part of the creative process on his own is incredible. That is an incredible achievement and he should be commended by his hard work. My fear is that this series won't get the sales, because of DC, Marvel, a longer shipping schedule, and an unjustly small amount of attention. I hope that a few people who have read this review will give this comic a shot, I doubt that those people would be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Dec 3, 2012

    This is another great issue. If you like post-apocalyptic stories, don't be scared off by the alien setting. Garing just put his characters on an alien planet rather than having Earth ravaged by a virus or zombies or whatever. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Nov 30, 2012

    Planetoid has been one of my favourite finds of 2012, and issue #4 has the same level of quality as the first three issues. This series refuses to stand still, offering something new each and every issue while still maintaining a strong sense of continuity from one to the next. There's been some problems with delays, but I'll be ready and waiting for Planetoid #5 when it hits stands. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Nov 27, 2012

    As is common with Planetoid, the end certainly leaves you wanting more, yet feeling thoroughly satisfied at the same time. The pacing moves well, with a lengthy enough passage of time that the world doesn't feel bogged down in minor details, and the over all plot gets plenty of room to breath and grow. Throw in Ken Garing's usual artistic flair for a rusty sci-fi look, and its easy to see this is a title that's still going strong. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Nov 28, 2012

    The thing about this issue is that it really seems that the story is drawing to a close. There is only so many routes it can go from here and if it doesn’t pan out in our survivors favor it won’t be nearly as interesting to see them start over again. The great thing is that the series could flash-forward fifty years in the future and begin again and it would work just fine with the story. I don’t know what’s going to happen in the next issue and that’s why I love Planetoid, it’s unpredictable for the most part and always interesting. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Nov 29, 2012

    While this isn't a perfect issue, it's still got a very long list of strengths, and the plot has moved certainly moved forward enough and raised the stakes high enough that the final chapter has its work cut out for it. And while the emotions here may not always been running as high as they could be, the sheer spaciousness in terms of art and plot elements gives it a lot of weight, making this a chapter that more than makes its imprint on the mind's eye.

    I truly love & admired what Ken Garing has done here and I’m looking forward to the next issue’s epic finale. Just don’t keep me waiting for another 2 months is all I ask. Read Full Review
