    Emboldened by the time skip, the second arc of We Only Find Them When They're Dead takes the series in a new and exciting vector. Between new characters, new situations, and new motivations, there are several enthralling prospects with the return to the world, and I'm excited for all of them. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams May 20, 2021

    I'll freely admit that I was initially a little skeptical about how Ewing could continue his narrative in a compelling way following the conclusion of the first arc, but he and the rest of the team simply haven't missed a beat here, and the shift in pace has added even more depth and intrigue to this already fascinating world. A richly textured, gorgeously illustrated sci-fi comic that gets my highest recommendation. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson May 19, 2021

    This issue is an exemplary example of Ewing's ability to world-build with an entire universe, expand on the ideas of the first arc using an almost entirely new cast and interpersonal dialogue as the means of exposition and explanation to orient the reader. It's a superb example of science fiction storytelling combined with brilliant art with an absolutely killer hook on the last page. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - ozwoods May 19, 2021

    We Only Find Them When They're Dead #6 re-introduces readers to this cosmic setting of space titans with a familiar face and plenty of new ones. The new protagonist, Marlyn Chen, is an entertainingly shady character, and we'll see if she becomes likable over time. The comic has a lot of epic visuals thanks to Simone Di Meo's art and Mariasara's colors, however, the story is less of a thrilling tale and more of a slow introduction to all of the new players.

    BGCP - Michael Lennox Jul 5, 2021

    Compared to the first five issues, this is a much slower dialogue-heavy issue and call me a cynic but the holes in the story that we could ignore in previous issues now come to the forefront. The justle between Malik and Richter gave tension and allowed the lesser cast to hide in plain view. With this jump forward in time, we're disconnected from the original arc and it feels like a painful wound. Read Full Review
