    I cant imagine the reaction to you discovering this like I have. Its everything those other books aren't. Mayburry has made an impression on me like some comic art junk dragon I need to chase now. McDaid alone makes this feel like a bargain. Farinas gets all 80"s VCR jams on it and I'm like "yo everyone!!! I'm outside your window and I am holding this comic over my head. Do you like my Jean Jacket?". Its a 10 a "must buy". It's a theme park of comic book dreams and I want you all to go there. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 7, 2013

    And at $2.99 this issue took me forever to read, especially when compared to the leading Marvel and DC comic books. I finished the last issue loving how much content there was, but not feeling the story. This issue dispelled all of those problems by fleshing out the characters and delivering surprises that'll make you laugh and cry out in shock. It's typical for the second issue in a series to get bogged down on plot, but not so here. If anything it was the first issue that was bogged down. There's just so much to love in this issue and I can't help but get excited for what is instore for each character in the upcoming issues. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Sean Tonelli Aug 7, 2013

    Catalyst Comix #2 manages to avoid the sophomore slump and delivers an introspective superhero tale that's unlike any book on the shelves. I cannot stress this enough; Catalyst Comix is a must grab. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 8, 2013

    The art shines in this series. For me personally it does all of the heavy lifting because if even one of the artists were to leave the book I doubt I would continue. Their different styles add a ton to the tone and feel of the world and yet they still come across as connected. The actual narration is what actually gives this series an anthology feel, but not in a good way. If you dug the first issue and can put up with an excess of reading that doesn't contribute to anything else in the story, then pick up the issue. If you just want to see some great art then ignore the caption boxes and stick to the dialog and you'll enjoy it a lot more. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Alex Aug 7, 2013

    The amount of ideas per page in this title are staggering. Joe Casey and friends should be admired for putting out such a challenging product. They need to start grounding some of these ideas or readers may not care much longer. Read Full Review

    Culture Mass - Stephen Wilds Aug 9, 2013

    Sadly disappointing is more appropriate. There are moments of what could be seen as brilliance in Catalyst Comix that barely get to shine through the dense smog of bad writing, lackluster art, and odd sex-obsessed hippie characters. Read Full Review
