    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Apr 11, 2014

    Artist Robbi Rodriguez and colorist Rico Renzi are the team of my dreams. Their work is gorgeous, especially when science itself goes insane and the imagery becomes captivating. Renzis soft colours are some of the best Ive seen, and I wish I saw his name on more books. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Apr 15, 2014

    When all's said and done, this is another solid issue of FBP. Yes, there isn't much plot movement, in terms of some of the larger plot threads. But the smaller, character driven scenarios that populate this issue seem to be where the creative team of Simon Oliver and Robbi Rodriguez really deliver. They really do a stellar job making these characters fun to spend time with, and, at the same time, understandable and relatable. And of course, the zany, out there, lack of physics always make this book interesting. Read Full Review

    I think that my assessment of FBP is really tainted by how much guidance Oliver has to provide in order for readers to understand his concept. The density of the book is both intriguing and frustrating as I feel a lot of the narration -- especially the conversation between Cicero and Sen -- is structured in a way that it leads the reader through the story.

    Infinite Comix - Oscar Bergeron-Oakes Apr 15, 2014

    The biggest problem with FBP #9 is that it seems that nothing is coming any closer to being resolved. Even more questions are asked, and characters seem to behave in mysterious ways, accelerating the plot at an uncomfortable pace. So many actions are occurring within a short frame of time, and it becomes difficult to catch why characters are doing the things they do. That being said, Oliver does deliver a nice bit of character growth for Adam, and displays that the male protagonist is learning how to care for someone other than himself. Also, the inclusion of the Nakeet mythology serves an an excellent narrative for the story. It provides the only sort of explanation for the events taking place, and it asks intriguing questions about the true nature of the universe. As the story's scribe, Oliver definitely had strong points in this issue, but it moves along a little too hastily, and the writing isn't able to compete with the fantastic art as a result.
