    Overall, I thought that this was a clever and entertaining story. David is an excellent protagonist who has dry and sharp banter that gave me a good ol' laugh. The concept is fresh and original, and this combined with the lovely art makes for a highly enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    AHOY Comics continues to deliver with their second release in High Heaven. This is a comic company that burst on the scene with pretty big promises and has delivered with two issues. You feel like you're getting a lot for your money and all of it is quality. Not only do I look forward to this series' next issue but I'm also front and center to see what else AHOY has up their sleeve. Read Full Review

    With David's plight, it certainly seems true that misery loves company, or at least a company of readers love his misery, in this entertaining book. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Jarrod Jones Sep 21, 2018

    High Heaven juts a thumb in the direction of the crummier aspects of life, and the laughs that come because of it provide a hearty sense of satisfaction without too much of that dyspeptic acidity"though it's too early to say if that's self-satisfaction we're supposed to be feeling. I'm hanging around not just because I love these creators, but to see if there's any salvation to be found amid all this irony. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 26, 2018

    I wasn't sure what to expect going into this book but it proved to be a lot more fun than I expected it to be. David's a sympathetic enough character but not one that you actually want to be or aspire to. His journey from horrific rejection to heaven is one that's brief but it's intense. Read Full Review
