The breakout hit of 2014 returns with volume two of the groundbreaking sci-fi trilogy!

It's 75 years after the events that left the Roche Limit colony in flames. When a crew of military and science personnel are sent to the forgotten and desolate planet on a mysterious expedition, they quickly learn its dark secrets-and that their mission is not what they thought it to be. With danger lurking all around, the crew members fight to find a way off the planet and resist the mysterious presence that haunts them all.

    It's a framing device you've probably seen before but where Clandestiny shines are in its many nuances and mysteries. Sasha is already incredibly complex, with so many unknowns floating around her it's hard to even get a bead on her true motivations. She's an exciting enigma and a worthy successor to Ford. (star of the last series) Clandestiny stands tall, meeting the high bar set by Roche Limit and possibly even raising it a few more notches. Do not miss this dynamite comic on May 6th.

    Rhymes With Geek - Nikki S. May 6, 2015

    Overall, Roche Limit: Clandestiny #1is a prime cut of comic book meat for old fans and first time readers alike. There's something for everyone here: the same philosophical, thought-provoking plot as the first volume, gorgeous art, and relatable characters. Each page was one heart-thudding event after another. I honestly couldn't believe I had reached the end until I was there. This is one book you don't want to miss. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson May 12, 2015

    Roche Limit: Clandestiny is a really interesting turn for the story, the kind that makes you want to know more right away.  It's a departure from the cold, cool tone of the first series, but not in a bad way at all.  Instead, it's a slight jump to a different sub-genre of science fiction, one filled with just as much dread and hopelessness.  This is not the bright, shiny future we were promised.  Humanity has failed.  The future sucks and we have to deal with it.

    Comics Bulletin - Michael Bettendorf Apr 29, 2015

    And while I havent quite got the feel for the pacing just yet, I know Roche Limit is like a good whiskey. It isnt meant to be shot. You sip it. You take it in. You let the flavors hit all your senses. By the time you reach the bottom of your glass, youve had a great experience and youre ready for more. As Sasha's crew approaches the forest leading up to the mines, she looks back and asks us, “You ready?” I know I am, how about you? Read Full Review

    AiPT! - John F. Trent May 6, 2015

    Roche Limit: Clandestiny #1 is an excellent opening issue. Moreci and Charles expertly combine emotional character development with high flying action sequences accentuated with planet exploration. It is a gripping and compelling tale. Moreci saves the best for last touching on what will most likely be an overarching philosophical discussion revolving around entropy. I can't wait for the next issue to see where Moreci will take the characters and how they adapt or change to their circumstances. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Keith Dooley May 7, 2015

    "Roche Limit: Anomalous" was one of the best series of 2014. Judging by the first issue of "Roche Limit: Clandestiny", Michael Moreci has continued to impress by upending expectations and continuing his epic that I can't wait to unfold and connect with the other parts as the issues are released. The addition of Kyle Charles on art, along with Matt Battaglia's colors, only enhances the abilities of the writer and artists. The complexity of Roche Limit and its mystery are, and will be, worth exploring. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Brian Reed May 6, 2015

    There's a lot of space-themed comics lately, but I feel Roche Limit does a good job of finding its own space. Sure, there's space ships and foreign worlds, but there's also a very familiar sense of dread and fear of the unknown. Read Full Review

    If this first issue is any indication, "Roche Limit Clandestiny" will definitely be a leaner animal than its predecessor. I'm quite curious to see how it will draw out the series' themes in such a different atmosphere and, more importantly, I want to see what these characters do next. Read Full Review
