The Planet Covenant is live! Warrior representatives from across the known galaxies have gathered to wage battle and prove their cosmic superiority. Representing the humans of Earth is War Cry, who enters into his first gladiatorial match with all the ego and bluster we can expect from Earthlings. But will it be enough to stop the lava-spewing champion of Saturn? Alliances are formed in and out of the arena, as each fighter starts to establish their rank. War Cry thinks he has found a friend in an empathic healer from distant Vrang, but he can't help but think his only true friend may be the oceanic Deep Dweller, his rival from Earth. And of more

    One of the most inventive and unexpected comics to come out of DC's roster in a long time, Steve Orlando and Travel Foreman's Electric Warriors continue to impress with its second issue. Read Full Review

    ELECTRIC WARRIORS #2 steps up the action as we see the Electric Warriors, including Ian and Kana, fight for their respective planets. Steve Orlando makes Ian a bit stand-offish, and it's hard to like him. With a compelling plot, but jerky protagonist and visuals that took a step back, this issue was ultimately a step below the first. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 17, 2018

    With all the mountains of mythology that has become the bedrock of DC Comics, there's something wild and unrestrained about Steve Orlando and Travel Foreman's work Electric Warriors, a work that " beyond a few minor touchstones to DC continuity " feels not like it's from another company, but almost from an entirely different world of storytelling.

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Dec 12, 2018

    In terms of presentation, this is a quality product. Letterer, colourist, and artist are all pulling out the stops to make this book's look distinctive and memorable. Orlando's plotting provides enough incident to maintain the sense of smooth forward momentum and, although the dialogue is occasionally overblown and some of the supporting cast is not especially fleshed out, the central character and the situation in which he finds himself are interesting enough to keep me invested. This is easily the best of the three Orlando books on the market at the moment. Read Full Review

    So I was mixed after the first issue. The second isn't much a help to determine if I like it or not.
    In one hand that remember me a lot Deathmatch. But if in deathmatch we discovered a mysterious battle between heroes & friends, the mystery was a part of what was hidden. There some of the fight are difficult to apprehend. And their is no mystery, they know for what they fight. Also I'm not a fan of Ian, and he disappoint me in his fight. Ok that give a nice cliffangrer, but I'm more interested in Kana.

    Cover - Weird and not related to what I read. 0.5/2
    Writing - I find it hard to understand, but some part are interesting too. And I understand what they want to tell. Is just ... I'm not shure it's a DC univers. I'm not more

    This is the best Orlando comic right now in that it's the least offensive with its sheer blandness. This writer needs to figure out how to create interesting stories. Seriously.
