The acclaimed miniseries continues! Luna has crash-landed back into her life after spending a year in a mental institution . . . but that might just mean she's closer to the edge than she's ever been before. After discovering clues about the Flying Woman's missing family, Luna's obsession reignites, threatening to again unravel her fragile mind. Meanwhile, a mysterious guru appears in the sewers of Chicago and a Russian mercenary seeks old secret technology, and the specter of violence begins to loom over everyone once more. Luna begins to wonder . . . will she even survive long enough to go insane?

    She Could Fly - The Lost Pilot #1 continues the dual storythreads of mental health and global scientific espionage that the first miniseries did so well, this time with more emphasis on deep character perspectives and less on a central mystery. A must-read for fans of this comic. Read Full Review

    For a debut issue, Lost Pilot had just the right things to make it an intriguing read and suck you in for more, whether it be its realistic take on mental illness or the absolutely bonkers delusions. Read Full Review

    While part of me is happy to hear that Cantwell and Morazzo are back to tell the tale of Luna and the She Could Fly universe, this issue turns out to be more of a set up and a preparation for what is next rather than actually continuing the story per se. Hopefully in the next chapter we begin to progress the story and see some new perspectives on the mental health theme. Read Full Review

    Berger books have delivered a series of great books from its inception. With this book however, I am not sure that the Dark Horse model of mini series actually benefits this book, with the complexity of Luna's story maybe needing a more consistent schedule. Still, She Could Fly The Lost Pilot remains consistent in its quality of storytelling. Read Full Review

    I really liked the first series in the beginning but it collapsed a bit under its own weight with too much put in too soon. There are interesting ideas in here still, especially with Luna and the issues she struggles with, but I'm feeling uncertain about the way it's being presented at this point, at least in terms of it feeling like it's landing right with the story being told. Cantwell's script may be losing me but I continue to enjoy what Morazzo brings to the page with the designs and the general flow of it, especially the look of everything with Clockovich and the brief bit we see of what's to come for Luna's grandmother.
