What would happen if that idea of you took shape and took over? Would you be able to even compare to that “person?” Would you want to? So much to think about. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex McDonald Dec 7, 2020

    Penultiman #3 is another stellar installment of the series that asks "what if the world's greatest hero didn't feel like he belonged?" There's just the right balance of humor and emotional beats (Penultiman's pained, forced smile being particularly relatable and amusing). As with any AHOY Comic, there's plenty of extras to make the issue even more worth it. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 1, 1970

    Peyer delivers an entertaining story (as do the writers of the back-up text stories) and the art is a perfect balance of traditional superhero art and slightly wacky comedic funnybooks. Nicely done. Read Full Review
