    Joyride so far has done a great job at getting people to care for and understand what it's like for Uma and Dewydd to finally be able to make their own decisions and mature into their own adults. Lanzing and Kelly really want you to get a sense of what real freedom feels like. I am starting to feel Catrin will eventually want to become a new person with the kids too. To and Kniivila give us beautiful and fun artwork withinan engaging and relateable story. I would say anytime the plot contains kids escaping an authoritarian-ruled Earth, its a must read for all sci fi fans, because lets be honest, what sci-fi kid hasn't had this fantasy. Joyrideis one of Boom's Studios top comics right now and you will regret not reading this stellar comic. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Jeremy Radick May 24, 2016

    Joyride #2 is a fun issue, and it really doesn't try to be anything more than an exciting classic space opera set in an irreverent vision of outer space. With engaging central characters and a charming and witty take on space adventures, you could do a lot worse when trying to find a comic to read for the simple old-school, gee-whizz fun of it.

    Flickering Myth - Zeb Larson May 25, 2016

    There's still a few lingering questions about the series that I want to see explored, the biggest of which is humanity's decision to isolate itself. We've seen that while the cosmos has some hostile elements, it's not full of genocidal beings or deadly viruses. Certainly, some of the beings exist on a higher plane than human beings, but not in a malevolent sense. Is that why humanity locked itself away in angry silence? The realization that we're just another small part of a big galaxy? That seems to be where we're headed, with the inevitable conflict between the Special Interceptor and Uma setting up opposite sides of that question. Uma wants to embrace the weirdness, while the Interceptor (and implicitly, earth's government) want to play it safe and stick to the known. Read Full Review

    Project-Nerd - Lee Jun 1, 2016

    This series has gone from strength to strength in just two issues. Boom! Studios are knocking it out of the park at the moment with their output. Kudos to all involved. Now I just have to impatiently wait for issue three. Read Full Review

    Joyride #2 is a worthy follow-up. Who doesn't love a fun outer space road trip story? The issue continues to develop the characters while introducing new ones at a nice pace and installs groundwork for future stories. I also really enjoy how this comic is taking its time by providing us with small hints to the couple of lingering mysteries in the background. While the artwork is not as solid as its debut issue, it's still visually pleasing. Boom Studios made a smart decision in turning this into an ongoing series. Read Full Review

    In short, this book remains awesome and I can't wait for the next issue. They are just a bunch of mismatched kids exploring a super weird galaxy and I love it. Read Full Review
