    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Dec 2, 2014

    When you open this book, just get ready for one of the craziest rides you've ever been on. Keller and Neely make no apologies as they trash the proverbial hotel room that is the traditional comic book format. Monkey erections, humans referred to as “skins”, all out parties, drinking and drugs. Keller keeps the words flowing while Neely fills the pages with humorous and insane imagery. Kristina packs in the colors, making every panel its own little acid trip as bright colors fill the background and push the character to the forefront. Say what you want about this title, one thing is for sure: these artists are giving you their all. They're also making it as fun as possible as from cover-to-cover this series has the feel of a non-stop party. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Sam Marx Dec 3, 2014

    Though it may not be as over the top as the first issue, The Humans #2 is very successful in introducing new, strong characters into the mix without going too deep into the realm of complete absurdity. The humanity of the characters shines through at all times, whether it is the representation of Johnnys own struggle or the other gang members just happy to see their friend back home. Its clear that Keller and Neely are building up the foundations for an impending storm of violence, and this issue goes a long way in making the reader better understand the pain and motivation of what's to come.

    Comic Bastards - Andr Habet Dec 4, 2014

    Much of The Humans' unique style comes from its lettering, drastically changing throughout from word balloons to scratchy red texts when Johnny loses his temper to great use of onomatopoeic melodies in the later party scenes. Start to end, The Humans' roars with energy, and its unapologetic tone makes it easy to want to come back for more. Plus, I need to figure out just what the hell Skins are. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Pablo Arriaga Dec 4, 2014

    One of the amazing things about this book is not the story itself, but the weight it carries. Keller and Neely have successfully presented a world that's well complimented by the philosophy of the characters. I'm not asking questions about the logic of the world, I'm wondering what the fuck are the Humans doing now and what's the next mayhem they're gonna get into, I'm enamored by the thought of being a Human, to "Ride or Die." And if you're wondering about actual existence of us "skins," you'll be able to know in this issue. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Akadavid Dec 5, 2014

    The Humans #2 is worth picking up if you want to read something a little different. It's a good mix of story, art and character development that makes you forget you're reading a comic about a biker gang of talking apes. Keller and Neely have created one of the most interesting and original series I've read this year, I'm looking forward to seeing what's coming up next. Read Full Review

    An offbeat and often times insane comic that still knows how to be a good story. Read Full Review
