If there’s anything Crush knows, it’s that traveling through space is a great time to load up on coffee, catch up on murder podcasts, and definitely not get sucked into a spiral of depression while reflecting on your meet-cute with the ex-girlfriend who just dumped you. When Crush’s trusty travel mug runs dry, a pit stop for caffeine puts Lobo’s daughter face to face with an old enemy whose vicious revenge could put an end to her journey-when it’s only just barely begun! Tick tock, Crush…your father’s waiting.

    A nonchalant, ironic, emotionally touchy, overall awesome, dive deep into space, and well, into Crush's crushing! Can't wait for next issue! Read Full Review

    Tamaki is still having fun having Crush address the reader with a vague air of disdain, and it works because we understand how much that attitude is a front to protect Crush from herself. Read Full Review

    While there's some confusion with the story " not always a bad thing " Amancay Nahuelpan's artwork is anything but. Nahuelpan is very consistent, and Tamra Bonvillain is, of course, one of the best there is. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 6, 2021

    With Crush & Lobo #2, Mariko Tamaki gives minimal character work through flashbacks while telling a snails paced story filled with non-funny cringe.  Crush is an endearing and complex character, but unfortunatley, you wouldn't know it from reading this book, which seems to want her to be Deadpool with Daddy Issues.
