    Big Comic Page - Ross Sweeney May 3, 2015

    The series as a whole raises the age-old question of 'does great responsibility come automatically with great power?' " recalling Mark Millar's work, as well as some of the more cynical super-'hero' flicks of late, but filtered through a lovely 80's vibe. Scintillating dialgoue, t'r'ific art and an genuinely interesting story all combine to continue Black Mask's run of exceptional books. Read Full Review

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Jun 4, 2015

    A compelling, relateable story with gripping characters, interesting plot twists and perfect pacing makes this book one of comics best out there. Even if you don't like old 80s movies like this, this is very hard to not find something relateable in this book. The characters are well fleshed out. The art is superb. And with the mysteries, actions and depths that our characters will or have gone, We Can Never Go Home might be something that you just want to hang on to forever. Comics at its best!

    If I could only recommend one independent comic to try this month, then it'd have to be We Can Never Go Home. Having been enthralled by it's opening issue, I was overjoyed to see the same level of quality in this second issue, with the energetic and thrilling developments captivating at every moment. It is however the great character depth that makes this a must have, as though the dramatic twists are needed to generate the dynamic tempo, it'd be nothing without the personality of Duncan and Maddie.

    I can't wait to see where Team We Can Never Go Home heads with this in the coming months. This mini from Black Mask is shaping up to be the kind of series you want to see from an indie publisher, with dynamic characters, a fully realized world, and the kind of cliffhangers that leave you wanting more without beating you over the head with it. Can't wait for next month's installment. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Taylor Hoffman May 6, 2015

    Were left on an even more intense cliffhanger than before as any illusion of safety is at risk yet again. Now its all about the consequences and justifications. All we can do is wait in anticipation for the next issue and listen to some Missions of Burma and hope that alls not lost and this is not a waste. Read Full Review

    We Can Never Go Home #2 is another fantastic entry into this new series that looks to push the boundaries on what a story about having powers can be. The artwork is once again excellent with its distinct style, and the writing is also on-point. You really can't go wrong with having this book in your pull-list, and I can't recommend it highly enough to fans that are looking for something really fun. Read Full Review

    This new minimalist series acts as a love letter of sorts, and if you like Crime Road movies like Badlands and True Romance, outcast inspired tales like Pump Up The Volume and Heathers or character driven adventure comics like Love & Rockets and Stray Bullets, then We Can Never Go Home could belong in your wheelhouse.
