    Needless to say, this is worth the read. Despite the fact that we’ve read it and seen it in films before, it’s still a concept that we find interesting, and one that we won’t lose interest in any time soon. So, read this book as soon as you can, and with an open mind, too. Read Full Review

    Another strong issue in the vein of the previous two, but, it constantly feels like we're only seeing the tip of the iceberg in story terms. The concept and the characters are good but with just a little more scope this could be something truly outstanding. Read Full Review

    As the issue rounds out, there are still a number of unknowns surrounding Elena, the Pax group and the situation on Earth. With only one issue to go in the series, it will be interesting to see just how the creators intend to find a resolution. Barbiere has introduced a number of interesting story elements and the universe of Broken World is impressively rich. The third issue of the series maintains this intrigue, but with so much ground still to cover it feels a like there will be a lot packed into the final chapter. It is possibly with that in mind that this chapter seems slightly underwhelming. Read Full Review

    Broken World is a thoughtful mystery that lets readers experience one survivor's grief, uncertainty, and quest for answers. Read Full Review

    Elena must head to one of the Children of the Revelation camps, where the leader Ted Holmes is rumored to be, and execute him. Another familiar face from her past makes an appearance and assists her in getting close to Holmes. The man projects confusingly pure intentions and readers are left with a cliffhanger going into the final issue. Questions remain about Elena's past (why couldn't she get on a shuttle in the first place?) and where exactly this fabled extra shuttle might be " or what those shuttles in space are doing. Do they even know the Earth survived? It will be interesting to see how Barbiere chooses to wrap up this compelling series. Read Full Review

    All in all, Broken World has good elements coming together for this post-apocalyptic Earth. But the real star is Elena's story. I think you could have thrown her in any situation and following her story would still be intriguing. So you have to give credit for creating an awesome main character. My only fear is that with the apocalyptic vibe, many readers may fade out of this comic because of the overdone premise. I am hoping that Elena can carry the readers through this mini-series and make us forget about the setting. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Andrew McGlinn Aug 4, 2015

    I really wanted to like Broken World, and I see a lot of ideas from other titles (Y: The Last Man, TWD, even Contact) that are here and could work, but it just isn't gelling together like it should and I genuinely think this is a lost opportunity. An extended run would allow more balance and a better pace to this story; too much is being crammed into four episodes in a way that isn't working well for me. Read Full Review
