Whoever said, "You can't teach an old dog new tricks," never met Q. A birthday gift from his uncle Jake, the cyber canine is more than a companion to the young Kyle. Q is Kyle's best and only friend. And on the planet Kirawan where mining the time-travel mineral Imperium is all anyone does, having a companion like Q counts for just about everything, including saving Kyle from an alien assault from the hostile insectoid Kira intent on eradicating the human colonists from their planet!

    Although we're still in January, and only a mere two issues in, RED DOG is one of 2017's “Sci-Fi to Buy” and you can expect it'll be included in “Top Sci-Fi Comic Books of 2017” and “Best Of…” lists come the end of the year. This series is not only for science fictionbuffs either. The characters are as relatable as likely someone in your family. With its dynamic narrative and talented creators, this well-rounded, action-packed, emotionally-feuled title needs to be on your pull list. 451 Media has put together a brilliant ensemble of creators for RED DOG and has a winning title on their hands to kick off the New Year!

    Comic Bastards - Chris Tresson Jan 11, 2017

    Another great issue from 451 Media and the team behind Red Dog. It really was a refreshing book and I think I needed it this week to balance me out. If you missed/didn't pick up the first issue of Red Dog, hunt it down and read it. It's been a great series up to this point and it's really, really well done. I highly recommend adding it to your pull list. Read Full Review

    RED DOG #2 continues to flesh out the mysterious planet Kirawan by showing off some of its dangers and introducing readers toa full set of robot pooches that are sure to play a role in future issues. Cohen and Atkins also touch upon several points in this issue that bring up more questions that have yet to be answered. Aside from the lack of characters of color, it's a solid issue that pushes the plot forward. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Jan 3, 2017

    Our favourite part of the issue is the panel where Q comforts Kyle is wonderfully heartfelt, it's quietly brilliant. the artwork of the issue feels slick and smooth, swiftly bringing the reader from page to page. This issue builds upon the first instalment in an inventive way. We won't give it away, but it's a great way of adding to the premise of a boy and his best friend. Overall, Red Dog #2 expands the world of Kirawan with exciting prospects. The story from 451 Entertainment is rooted in science fiction influences that fans of classic movies, tv shows and comics will recognise and love – but also carves it's own place in the genre. Needless to say, we're looking forward to see what's in store from this lovable underdog comic book. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Richard Wanderman Jr. Jan 5, 2017

    We have a boy and his dog Q. I must say I'm a huge sucker for stories with dogs asa main character, and Q looks to become one of my favorites. From just being a silly playmate, to hazarding the exterior with his Kyle, Q has a personality that is unmistakable. Give him a pack and we can see what a quantum computer minded dog can accomplish, and just how much that can affect Kyle as he tries to master both childhood and adulthood at the same time. I can't wait to continue reading this six-issue series. Read Full Review

In issue #2 we really get some great insight into Kyle and his struggles with his family life. We also get some great interactions between Kyle, his uncle, Q and some new friends.
