    Arcadia is definitely worth picking up. It appears to surmount the difficulty that the Its Canon team have brought up regarding publishing schedules making story lines stilted. Whether you grab it now, or wait for the collection, Arcadia is probably good for anyone in the mood for a sci fi thriller. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Jun 3, 2015

    When you can spend $3.99 on a comic and know that it is worth the full price and that you won't just read it one time and throw it in some pile, then you have got an awesome story that deserves more credit than it is getting. Arcadia is brilliant. I continue to think about the questions this comic raises through the night. Paknadel has got something special here and I am digging every word of it. Read Full Review

    Arcadia is 2/2 for successful issues. >Arcadia #2 compounds on the first issue's hook with a solid and unique storyline that provides plenty of intrigue. The art isn't my favorite, but it does enough to make the series one of my current top five. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Eric Switzer Jun 6, 2015

    Alice tells Lee that his immunity is a miracle giftwrapped in barbed wire. That is a description that applies to this book in many ways. Living comes at the price of inhospitable conditions and agonizing loneliness. You might live in a utopia world of endless possibilities where you can live forever, but the cost is first dying a horrible death. Theres a price for everything Arcadia and two sides to every coin. If this series can continue to walk the line between introducing fresh ideas and overloading us with concepts I imagine it will turn out to be a remarkable story. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Matthew Sardo Jun 2, 2015

    Did we get all the answers in issue two of a six issue mini-series, no. But why would we want that? This is the part of the roller coaster ride where you look around and admire the scenery, enjoy the suspense before the big climb to the drop. Read Full Review

    Arcadia is good, though not necessarily spectacular " yet. It has in its first few issues the promise of something great; there is enough substance here to entice a purchase and it's definitely worth reading if you have a couple of extra bucks. If you can't spare the money on singles, Arcadia will likely be a great read in trade. Read Full Review
