    There is a labored Gamergate reference that took me out of the world of Arcadia for the first time but, ignoring that, the writing continues to be intriguing and on point social commentary wrapped up in a narrative that really makes you stop and think. Beyond Binetti's new power, there's a greater danger in Arcadia; people " their source codes " are permanently dying, being wiped out from the mainframe, something that shouldn't be possible. One the fault of The Meat, but the other death seems to have come from inside Arcadia. Each character has a different pressing issue or question that motivates their actions and that's what makes each issue of Arcadia so interesting. I can't stress enough that everyone should be reading Arcadia and delving into these issues of cyber-ethics and human consciousness with me. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Aug 12, 2015

    I have no complaints about this comic. I also think that the story is more real than any other futuristic story out there. And Paknadel focuses on it all without getting lost. He shows us the emotional side of a family while dealing with the social changes in the United States. I look forward to every single issue and you should too, because damn this is getting real.
