    But Why Tho? - Jason Flatt Jul 20, 2022

    Barnstormers #1is just so much fun and so pretty. There is a whole lot I feel like I just can't say at the risk of spoiling some of the surprises, but this high-flying sci-fi mystery has me completely hooked and completely strapped in for whatever the series throws our way next.

    Comic Watch - Anthony Bergamini Jul 5, 2023

    Barnstormers #1 is as much an excellent period piece as it is a melodramatic romance. The character work is fantastic and the art is as grounded as it is breathtaking. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tom Smithyman Jul 5, 2023

    Some perfect visuals from Tula Lotay make this once digital-only series a must-have in print. Add to that some great writing from Scott Snyder and you have a compelling start to a throwback tale. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 19, 2022

    Tula Lotay's art feels painted and haunting, and an ongoing sci-fi subplot doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the story yet but only drives home how unpredictable this book is. Brilliant start. Read Full Review

    Capes & Tights - Jared Thomas Jul 2, 2023

    Scott Snyder's creative writing is a perfect match for the comic book's theme. The elegant characterization of both the protagonists, John and Helen, is what makes the comic book stand out. Snyder cleverly intertwines their backstory with the plot to create an engaging, character-driven story. The way their common passion for aviation brings them together and how their romance blossoms, all within the constraints of the era, will leave you wanting more. Read Full Review

    Barnstormers #1 has quite a few things going for it. Perhaps the biggest and best of those things is Tula Lotay's art. Read Full Review

    Art i beautiful but with little facial expressions - 7
    Story telling is a - 8
    But the dialog is really bad with the f' bombs and gd' bombs feeling out of place and even taking you out of the story when it is said. there was plenty of room for editing as well, with lots of things could have been said using less words - 3

    This is my first Snyder book as I say story good but atrocious dialog so not that impressed with him so far
