    Bounding Into Comics - Phillip Pratt Sep 13, 2018

    Exilium is something of a love letter to old-school fans of Science Fiction, obviously crafted by those same fans. It's a refreshing, yet familiar read. The artwork is very pleasing. Character facial expressions and body language are impressively and consistently illustrated. Slabak's lines help emphasize both the humor and desperation within the story. Dialogue is well-crafted and downright funny in spots especially during a particularly meta exchange between Tr'U and Ken where they reference Independence Day and Spaceballs. This may only be a 6-part series, but I can easily see an entire universe spin out of Exilium. It's a fun read with lots of potential- a high recommendation for Sci-Fi fans. Read Full Review

    A decent opening issue that tells an interesting sci-fi tale. The series gets stronger, although it does feel a little lightweight, and would benefit from a bit more space to fill in some of the background. Sadly, Comicbook Round Up don't have the remaining five issues up to add reviews for.
