    The journey to survive has begun and the first stop brings trouble. I really liked the story, with a familiar location revealing to be a haven for more than merchandise. Princess is going to be the most changed character by this trek/series and she's a great way for the reader to see the world. The visuals are excellent, with art and colors enhancing the story on every page. Read Full Review

    Orphan Age #2 is an excellent issue in this wonderful series and a classic case of out of the frying pan and Into the fire for both the characters and the reader. The story is masterfully crafted and the artwork is top notch. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 15, 2019

    Orphan Age is an intriguing book that is taking its time to show us the world that the characters inhabit. While we had our danger and action in the opening installment, this one presents us with more danger but it doesn't try to go for it in a really big way and that helps to keep it tight and personal. Anderson's script provides for a lot of good details and clues to how the world operates while Plati's artwork gives us the bleakness of it but also the hopefulness combined with the color design. This is the kind of book you could liken to a Walking Dead series without zombies as it focuses on the survival side of a post-apocalyptic world. I want more of it and depending on the intent and structure of this series, is one that could go on for quite some time. Read Full Review

    "Orphan Age" #2 doesn't exactly do anything new for the post-apocalyptic genre, but that doesn't stop it from being a greatly entertaining read. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson May 12, 2019

    A mediocre story is held up by fascinating art work and an aesthetic different from the type usually found in post-apocalyptic comics. Read Full Review
