    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Feb 10, 2015

    A strong title that I'm sad to see coming to an end, but one that will surely go out on top of its game. Read Full Review

    Geek Sushi - Kyle Rowsey Feb 11, 2015

    Howard Chaykin (American Flagg!, American Century, Black Kiss) was born to draw smutty pin-up girls wrapped in lace, and I think he's well aware of that. The detail on every page is a thing to admire. The stitching of hosiery, patterns of wallpaper, newspaper columns, pinstripes, checkerboard, polka dot, and plaid, any type of pattern or detail you could think up are found in the pages of this comic. It's almost as if Chaykin called up Fraction and said "challenge me." Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Feb 11, 2015

    "Satellite Sam" #11 is at a point in the series where Fraction and Chaykin have perfected their synergy in an issue that smoothly cruises along even as its story ramps up. It's the showcase of a series that has consistently remained among one of Image Comics' best titles. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Feb 10, 2015

    This series remains an excellent example of how the medium can be used in different ways that do not involve superheroes, and instead rely on characters and concepts which are of any creator's imagination and inspiration. The confusing story of this series will eventually lead to some ending when those behind the vile actions are forced to face the consequences of their own actions, but in the mean time it is not the overarching story line which keeps the readers engaged but rather it is the well written characters that draws the reader in. One thing is certain though, those that judge this series only by its covers are missing a completely different story. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge, III Feb 10, 2015

    Satellite Sam, with its sleaze-filled serial narrative, has always been an interesting and daring entry into Image Comics' oeuvre, but with #11, Fraction and Chaykin show that Satellite Sam is much more than just lace and ribald visuals. It is a well researched slice of the times starring men and women who are committed to their jobs to the point to ruin. The crew of Satellite Sam may not be the best group of people or the most reliable, but they have each other and, by God, they have their show and sometimes that's enough to keep them from spilling over the edge. For how long they can keep teetering on that edge, who can say - but at least they won't blow their start times. Read Full Review
