    At the same time, based on a few things that Sam talks about you get a sense that there's something just a little bit off with her. I don't want to get into any spoilers, but Moore does a great job of hinting that Sam may have some issues based on a troubled past. It's definitely subtle, but it's enough to make me question some of what she encounters and sees in this first issue. Moore's art is looser than what we've seen from him in the past, but definitely fits the subject matter. His shadows are scratchier and in a few panels are much more cartoony than what I am used to from his work in the past. But it's a style that matches the tone and character of this series. Overall, Motor Girl is a fun, happy and lighthearted book that you should be reading, especially if you want to smile! I can't wait to read more. Read Full Review

    The idea that a girl like Sam and her gorilla pal can set up shop as a repair station for passing extra terrestrials is certainly unique, and it’ll be exciting to see what adventures are in store for them. Read Full Review

    I really dig Mooree artwork, but his dialogue is amazing. It makes the book, and really makes it feel like these characters are right in front of me, conversing and such. I dont have any of Moores work to measure this to, but if Strangers in Paradise, Echoes or Rachel Rising are anything like Motor Girl, then I need to hurry up and check them out. If you are looking for a break from the superhero books and want something that just looks and feels like a great story, then give Motor Girl a shot, you wont regret it. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 3, 2016

    No two Terry Moore comics feel remotely alike. Moore is following up the dark horror drama Rachel Rising with this much more lighthearted project, one that's equal parts comedy and science fiction. It allows Moore to showcase his sillier side without ignoring the character drama that makes his work so engrossing in the first place. Read Full Review

    A very strong start to a series very different than anything Moore has done before. Read Full Review
