    Doom Rocket - Sara Mitchell Sep 16, 2019

    Writer Carlos Giffoni has slipped us a complex pill to swallow after reeling us in with an astral-projecting space cat. He started me off with omfg CUUTE and left me with how can I improve upon the landscape in society which allows the exploitation and colonization of the many to profit the few? And is it possible to change that trajectory when you think of these people as having deep-seated fears of mortality and convince them to stop building monuments of wealth to themselves, or are some people just void of all empathy for the world around them?

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Sep 20, 2019

    Strayed #2 is carried by the premise of the series as a whole. This issue is utilitarian in the sense that it only seems to exist as a way to bridge the opening issue to a more interesting story on the horizon. With that being said, the issue is also saddled with an uninteresting antagonist, but is buoyed by a fun, adorable, astral projecting cat. Read Full Review

    For a comic about astral projecting cats, this is a very, very melancholic issue and I'm worried that it'll become much more tragedy before much longer. Read Full Review

    Develops nicely from the opening issue, with the moral quandary facing Kiera being explored. In places other characters feel a little two dimensional, but over all this remains an interesting and different comic. I'm looking forward to the next issue.
