    Join the Future continues to be a solid book and I liked this installment of it. It did feel a bit more repetitive than it should have, assuming this is still a six-issue series, as covering the same ground again so quickly doesn't sit well with me. But Clementine is already in a better place to handle what's going on and it unfolds well here as she deals with three different types of authority that are telling her what to do and how to do it. Kaplan's script is solid and keeps things moving forward but making me want to see a dive into one of these underwater cities. I like what we get with the main pieces here and how Clementine handles most of it and am curious to see how this new stand she's taking at the end of the book will really unfold. Read Full Review

    Well, it still is a great series, and this itself is still a great issue, but I find it kind of lousy how Clem just snuck out so easily from the " Future ". However, the art, simple panel-work, colors, spectacular. The writing and world-building and the ideas relayed through that world, still absolutely stellar. A little action thrown in, and what seems to be sneak peak of a clever plan Clem is hatching up with what primitive material she has left against an ever evolutionizing world. Hopefully the Trader isn't just thrown out of the story, but overall still a fantastic book.
