    “The Saviors” couldn't really come recommended more highly for a title that is doing exactly what it means to do. There's enough that sets it apart from other genre stories, but ultimately it just wants to be a paranormal conspiracy chase book with a memorable character dynamic at its center. It's a very good one, at that. J. Bone's visual approach is so simply stunning and playful that readers will want to stick around to see what James Robinson gives him to do next. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Jan 28, 2014

    This second issue of The Saviors when paired with the first actually work much better than being read separately. Both issue one and two should be read together because together they really give you a real solid feeling of what this series is about. It's nice to have two creators who made their names working on mostly established characters team up to finally make an ongoing creator owned series that is all their own story. These first two issues were a good start but it will be interesting to see what these guys have in store for us as The Saviors progresses from here. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Eric Bridges Jan 28, 2014

    The writing for this wonderful and works well. The way that you feel the urgency for the character and how it develops is very nice and flowing. I have to say that with everything going on in this book, you better believe that the writer knows how to focus in but develop the story. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jan 30, 2014

    Leave it to James Robinson to create a new series about aliens in hiding that feels fresh and exciting. By giving us a story with an unlikely main character, it doesn't fall into the typical stories we've often seen in this genre. J. Bone's art compliments the story in giving it a classic feel while also making it stand out from other comics. There's no telling what Robinson is planning for this comic and you'll want to experience it all for yourself. Read Full Review

    The story itself while simplistic and perhaps a little thin on plot, does have its fair share of twists and turns. Where do the Lizard Men hail from? What is their hidden agenda for all humanity? Not all has been unravelled yet, there are still mysteries that a comic addict can look forward to in the coming issues. So I am definitely putting The Saviors on my recommended reading list. I suggest you do the same. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Soup Owens-Fowler Jan 29, 2014

    Image once again proves to be the home of creators who want to tell the kind of stories they want to read, the bottom line and market shares be damned. Robinson and J-Bone have begun a tale that exudes passion for the material, and for them that can be it's own reward. The Saviors is not out to reinvent or deconstruct genres, it just wants to tell an oddball story that's fun in an 'Outer Limits" kind of way. For some, the simplicity may be a turn off, but for those who can enjoy an extremely visual telling of an aliens-among-us story, this is definitely worth a look. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jan 29, 2014

    The Saviors #2 is a good, but slow second issue for the series. It feels uneventful, but it is still necessary since it reveals a lot of important information in a very heavy exposition scene. It's a decent issue regardless, but maybe wait on picking this one up until the next issue comes out. Read Full Review

    "The Saviors" #2 is a fun second installment, and enough to seal the desire to stick around to see what happens next. This is a fun story and a good looking book to boot. With the exposition out of the way for now, the next issue should be able to move at a faster clip. Consider me sold. Read Full Review

    It's enjoyable and has you on the edge of your seat in the opening pages. It's a bit of a shame that the main character is a pot head because this is shaping into a story that I think your readers would really enjoy.
