    Ballistic is currently my favorite thing happening in comics. There is no better place to spend your money than on Repo City State. The book defies most conventions of the science fiction genre and masterfully blends biology with technology. There is so much under the surface of this book that multiple readings should garner something new each time. Dont miss it, and tell everyone you know about it. Read Full Review

    Ballistic is one of the freshest debuts of 2013 with a retro-style to it that harkens back to the great British comics of the 80s. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Jason Sacks Sep 16, 2013

    Not very comics leave me with a combination of euphoria and depression at the same time, but the brilliantly dystopian world that Adam Egypt Mortimer and Darick Robertson create with Ballistic put me in a thoroughly alien state of mind. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Sep 11, 2013

    I really have to hand it to this comic, because it is just plain weird" with all the right weirdness. Darick Robertson's art is perfect for this series too. He really put Repo City right in your face. The comic doesn't try to explain everything about this world, and here it works; keeping me entertained with this new city that is unlike anything I have seen. Am I lost? Well hell yes, but I couldn't imagine a more creative world to be sucked into. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Sep 12, 2013

    Essentially, if the first issue of "Ballistic" had you intrigued, this one definitely will not put you off. It's still overwhelmingly inventive, bursting with ideas and colour and detail, and it's still a bit hard to follow. But then, this may be one of those cases where the overall gestalt of a comic is so gobsmacking that it's easy to overlook the flaws. If you know what you're signing on for, and are willing to invest that extra bit of effort and really get immersed in the world that Mortimer and Robertson have created, "Ballistic" really does reward.

    Front Towards Gamer - FTG Contributor Sep 17, 2013

    The artwork in Ballistic is generally pretty solid but the coloring and cluttered eco-tech has a bad tendency to blend together, as I said though the most interesting thing here is the weird world but that's also the least well explained. If you're like me and you actually can get into trying to make sense of jumbled but fascinating weirdness it might be worth a look down the line but ultimately I'd say even if you are interested I'd wait for the trade.
