    Overall, if you're not reading Sheltered"why? This book has grabbed us all by the throat on day one and has refused to let up thus far. By reading the description for next month's issue, I can surmise that it's going to be even crazier than this issue. Until then, Sheltered #9 is more than enough to hold you over. Read Full Review

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire May 26, 2014

    We've had 9 issues of SHELTERED now, and I still can't get enough. Ultimately, it's the well-formed character drama and art that makes this book work so well, and with so much more likely to come, I can't wait to see what Brisson, Christmas and Chankhamma have up their sleeves. Sheltered is well worth your hard-earned comics money and should have a place on every pull list. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards May 28, 2014

    Sheltered #9 is brutal and vicious and reaches a rather nasty climax for one of the storylines. Despite it all, it's highly engaging and will keep you glued to your seat as you read through the pages. Easily the best issue of the series and hopefully, the end of the arc will prove to be just as good. Read Full Review

    At the end, Lucas tries to recapture some of the moral high ground, and with only 6 issues remaining, I've never been more excited to see how it'll all unfold. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Cody Mudge May 27, 2014

    Sheltered was just missing a few key elements I needed to start recommending it whole-heartedly to friends and other comic lovers. Those elements have, in large part, been answered with "Sheltered #9". Brisson and Christmas have made me a believer in the depth and length of story they have here and, like The Walking Dead, you might come for the interesting plot pitch, but youll stay for the unpredictable and relatable characters.

    All-Comic - Kyle Welch May 27, 2014

    Sheltered is as captivating as ever. Brisson's writing will leave you disgusted with some characters and cheering for others. Christmas' art is kinetic and gruesome. Each issue is filled with tension that never really subsides. Issue nine is another great chapter in the series. Read Full Review

    The most pathos in "Sheltered" #9 belongs to Cliff, who must kill or be killed. Christmas does great work with his facial expressions; it's painful to look at Cliff's face in any panel he's in, Christmas' art broadcasting his terrible physical and mental pain. Through facial expressions, body language and pacing, Christmas also does a great job of maintaining narrative tension throughout. Shari Chankhamma keeps the color palette mostly grim, but some of the quiet nighttime scenes have beautiful rich greens and blues. """Sheltered" #9 will read better when collected into trade; as a single issue, it's filled out with movements that feel like adjustments to a game board. Many moving parts come together from events set up in earlier issues, but there is no resting place, resolution or a game-changer at the end of the chapter, just a recombination-- though the cliffhanger on the final page indicates that fresh stakes are on the verge of being introduced.
