    Sirens of Sequentials - Jude Deluca Mar 23, 2020

    With the way things are going in the real world right now, from the pending reelection to the coronavirus pandemic and the fear of mass unemployment, it's been such a relief to journey back into the world of Heavy Vinyl to see the women of Vinyl Destination fighting against corporate greed in the name of artistic and queer empowerment. The journey these women go on gives me sorely needed hope for the future. It's a testament to the creative team's skills that, while certain big things are revealed, there's more surprises to come from the world of Heavy Vinyl. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Duna Haller Apr 9, 2020

    This book is an uplifting and engaging story, filled with LGBT+ teen positivity and romance and a vibrant style you won't want to miss. Even with it being a follow up to an equally great volume, said volume is not necessary to enjoy this engaging story set in the birth of digital music sharing. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Kat Calamia Mar 27, 2020

    The first volume of Heavy Vinyl did an extraordinary job at introducing the band, and just like any good second entry, Y2K expands on that development with some stand-out character beats, especially when it came to their romantic sub-plots. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Zachary Whittaker Apr 16, 2020

    'Y2K-O!' is a solid continuation of 'Heavy Vinyl', bringing back everything that was enjoyable from the first volume with an extra helping of late '90s nostalgia. With no shortage of positive representation and a great cast of characters, I'll always have time for more from this series. Read Full Review
