The second arc of Uber launches this issue as KIERON GILLEN opens a new chapter in this year's most talked about series. The first blow in the battle between English and German Ubers has been wrought and neither nation walks away whole. The war rages on in the Pacific Theatre as Japanese Kamikaze pilots attempt to drive the US forces out while delivering devastating losses to the enemy naval fleet. But the tides of war change as the Japanese deploy their own enhanced soldiers! Picking up directly after the events in Uber Vol 1, this second chapter is the perfect jump on point for new readers to experience the horrors of Uber war

    As far as alternate history stories go this has to be among my absolute favorites. I know Kieron has gone to great lengths to really flesh this world out and make it uniquely his and it's worked far beyond my wildest dreams, possibly his as well you never know. Who would have thought one of the BEST new series of the year would A. come from Avatar Press B. deal with Nazi's creating supermen and C. introduce the world to an incredibly talented new artist? But all that and more has happened within these pages. Read Full Review

    Uber keeps telling its own story. I like how the focus is on the impact of a new weapons system rather than on “great power” and “great responsibility”. We've had plenty of THAT, so it's nice to just have a clinical evaluation of how great power can change warfare. Read Full Review

    It's unfortunate that Avatar doesn't intend to issue the first trade paperback collection of Uber till next year (there's an expensive, limited-edition deluxe hardcover on the way first). While issue #6 is a theoretically decent jumping-on point, since we've moved on to a different setting and group of characters, it really needs the context of the first story arc to be truly effective (or even intelligible in some ways). Indeed, this is probably the weakest issue of the series so far, but that's largely due to it having less buildup, and fewer new discoveries for the reader. Avatar does have the previous individual issues in print for online ordering, but it would be nice for new readers to binge on the series' beginnings in a reasonably-priced collected form before it gets too much further along. Either way, though, if alternate history, and intelligently explored questions of science-fiction and superpowers, are of interest, it's time to get caught up on Uber. Read Full Review
