    'Break Out' continues to build one of the wildest and hardest heists in science fiction. Kaplan raises the bar with a near-impossible mission but keeps things moving with inner team hope and then crisis. Issue two is chockful of development and wastes no time getting to the task at hand. Precisely and thoughtfully illustrated by Santos and Wordie, 'Break Out' is the perfect sci-fi heist comic for discerning readers. I need to see how this ends.  Read Full Review

    Santos offers some brilliantly detailed panels throughout the issue. There are great visual moments from the description of the inside of the alien ships to the abduction scene. The art is intense and beautifully captures the mood of the story. Read Full Review

    Many of the larger questions at the center of Break Out don't get answered in this second issue, but it has done a great job of continuing to get me invested before these payoffs arrive. Read Full Review

    Break Out #2 is a good set up for our big confrontation. Like any heist story, the buildup to the actual heist needs to be entertaining and quick, which this issue depicts well. The main character isn't the most likable, but boy does this issue make you feel like you need to read the next chapter. Read Full Review
