    Oh, and as an aside, any issue of any comic that manages to include an insanely topical Jurassic Park reference without it feeling tacky earns an additional tip of the hat from me. Well played, sirs. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Zeb Larson Jun 17, 2015

    The slow-burn is really paying off now. Whatever happens next issue is going to be bad, and now that Asag has had an issue to lie relatively low, the chaos that comes will be the next opportunity for the creature to strike. Bad news for the characters, but good news for us. Read Full Review

    If you're looking for chuckles and quippy one-liners you may want to look elsewhere. Although there is a nice timely Jurassic Park reference that works extremely well in context. Burning Fields is a seriously haunting procedural that burns and wallows in the mud looking for a release that never comes. This is a high-grade political thriller that needs to be experienced.

    Comic Bastards - Andr Habet Jun 19, 2015

    My only qualm with this issue was the first two pages when Dana and Aban meet up with Ghada and the Brotherhood. I didn't have much of a sense of where they were at the time or how much time had lapsed since their departure from the Carapace facility. While this is a minor issue, it does impact the sense of urgency within the issue since it's not clear whether only a few hours or an entire day had passed since the previous scene. It's definitely not something that took away from my enjoyment of this issue though, and I'm looking forward to seeing just what the hell is up with the blue eyes of Renfro and the others, and whether there actually is something supernatural lurking within the tunnels.

    Comix I Read - Boris Roberto Aguilar Jun 16, 2015

    As usual Michael Moreci and Tim Daniel's thriller is really shaping up to be a phenomenal series. I really cannot get enough of the overall story. While the comic book is very plot and story heavy, they do a fantastic job of telling a suspenseful and well thought out story that really keeps the reader wanting more. While I love reading the next issue of this series, I get a bit concerned knowing that we are inching towards the end of the series. If you have not read this series yet, just stop what you're doing right now and get caught up with BURNING FIELDS ASAP! You can't just pick this issue up so you NEED to catch up"do it".do it now!
