    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 3, 2019

    While I can track an idea of where this series is going to go, Jai Nitz has so many pieces in play that I can imagine a long arc spinning out across multiple miniseries for it. I like this cast of characters that we're introduced to and then get shuffled off out of the picture surprisingly quickly. It's all about Chen, which is how he lives his life, so it makes sense, but I'm wondering how many will circle back in when he least expects it. Tom Reilly again delivers a great looking book with so much detail to so many varied scenes and events that it's not exactly chaos but it's chaotic with how much is going on. And that makes it worth a couple of reads in order to soak up all the details of what's going on. I can't wait to see what's next. Read Full Review

    ASTRO HUSTLE #2 takes everything great about the debut issue and expands on it. We get a bit more backstory, without taking anything away from the action as we explore more of this fascinating and super-fun world. Definitely a book worth picking up. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Mar 29, 2019

    A likable hero, an unfolding mystery, plenty of suspense and intrigue, Astro Hustle has it all, and despite the apparent frivolousness on the surface, it looks like it will lead up to a more nuanced political thriller. Read Full Review
