    Shipwreck might not be the first title readers think of when they think of new Ellis works, but after #5, I have a feeling that that could (and should) change. Read Full Review

    Fans of dark sci-fi should check this out. It's creating an interestingstory. But the art is really the selling point for me and it makes me wish Phil Hester just did more work. This is a solid and unique book. Give it a chance! Read Full Review

    Ellis, Hester, Gapstur, and Englehert earn their recommendation with this issue of Shipwreck. Its a great read with solid characters and fantastic art. The story is simple at its heart, and its easily engaging. Pick this one up when it comes out. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - John Schaidler Aug 28, 2017

    Both as a series and individually within each issue, the introspective pacing and reflective mood are well suited to the central story and "Shipwreck" #5 is no exception. The book's erratic publishing schedule, however, makes it difficult to connect with. If the release schedule normalizes, this series will be brilliant. Otherwise, wait and experience it in trade paperback form. Read Full Review
