    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Nov 8, 2018

    Orlando is delivering a complex, often convoluted story picking up on a lot of dangling plot threads. I'm not sure it's always the most coherent story, but as it's moved on it's become a highly entertaining read. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - George Chrysostomou Nov 7, 2018

    I hope to see The Unexpected series continue for at least another arc. Mandrakk, and even The Bad Samaritan to an extent, have been built as significant enemies. Now that the team functions together well, we've got a flavour of what The Unexpected could be. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Nov 7, 2018

    More The Unexpected means more silliness, more Morrison homage, and more ludicrous action. Ronan Cliquet's art works well for this book, which requires a certain clarity and dynamism; Cliquet thankfully provides both. Orlando's storytelling continues to be characterised by an over-reliance on technobabble and characters shouting plot points at one another to drive things forward. That said, there are odd moments of mystery, interaction, and action which mean the issue is not a complete waste of time. Read Full Review

  • 4.0 - Chase Magnett Nov 7, 2018

    Characters are flimsy and the action is steeped in lore that has not actually been grounded in the pages of The Unexpected. There is nothing to be signified by all of this storm and fury; keep it. Read Full Review
