    Blue Book was a welcome change of pace from a lot of other books I'd been reading from Dark Horse recently. It's a solid and small story with some personal flair to it for the characters and it was done with gorgeous artwork and color design to make it stand out all the more. And to be thematic in a fun way as well. I kind of dread the usual mini-glut of black, white, and red books we get these days but there are areas where doing specific single-color work can be a big plus and enhance the story. The artwork for this was able to do that thanks to Oeming's talent here as it all comes together wonderfully. This is going to be a book I hope more people discover in trade form over the next few years and find something wonderful within for this genre. Read Full Review

    Honestly, Blue Book has mostly felt like a big whiff, despite the caliber of creators involved. Read Full Review

    Tynions interest in the Hill abduction case is kind of a fun trip back to an old mystery, but the author isnt really adding anything to the story that makes the journey worth making. Still--Oemings art and the coolly distinctive visual feel of the issue make it graphically appealing in a way that old accounts of alien abduction so rarely are.  Read Full Review
