    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Dec 2, 2020

    The high concepts in Far Sector continue to be exciting, interesting and thought provoking. This mitigates some of the pacing issues of the book. Jo continues to be a conundrum, far from the perfect hero, but she has all the potential to be a breakout character for DC Comics. Her indiscretion with Councilor Marth still haunt her and she may be blind to his machinations. As the story enters the last quarter next issue, it feels like big things are about to happen.

    Far Sector #9 reminds us that planets halfway across the galaxy are a lot like Earth. The people are miserable, and memes run the world. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Dec 1, 2020

    When all is said and done, Far Sector #9 delivers a strong story that helps flesh out the world and works to introduce the next act of its story. With all the action of the last couple of episodes, a bit of a slower pace is a welcome moment to let Mullein catch her breath. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 10, 2020

    The issues starts out rather talky, with CanHaz sharing a bit more of City Enduring's history with the Green Lantern and offering a suggestion on where she might poke around. The revelations, and the comic's limited action, are saved for the later pages as Sojourner sneaks into Platform Solid Ground, an alien farmland where most of the City's food comes from. However, what she uncovers looks more like a prison camp involving the forced servitude that gives her more information about how City Enduring functions and what really keeps things running. Far Sector #9 offers another solid issue, but we'll have to wait until the next issue for the Green Lantern's response to her discovery. Read Full Review

    Far Sector feels a bit long in the tooth at this point, but the general storytelling is still strong. The artwork is also still as gorgeous as can be! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 1, 2020

    Jamal Campbell delivers some beautiful imagery in this issue. Every page has some great visual moments. Unfortunately, there isn't much to the story and therefore the art is all that connects and engages. Read Full Review
