    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Feb 29, 2016

    The collaboration on Interceptor is perfectly in sync. I can't remember the last time I read a first issue in which the writer and artist were working this tightly together and weren't the same person. Here's the thing, this book is for people who enjoy comics. Not superhero comics. Not big two only comic readers, but people who have grown up with the medium and figured out, "hey this shit is like tv, movies and video games all rolled into one." With comics you get stories that are amazing and would never exist anywhere else. This is one of those stories. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Jan 6, 2016

    “Interceptor” wants you to have a good time and with a fully formed set of characters and amazing, bombastic art, it's easy to do that. Heavy Metal is poised to have a big 2016 and if “Interceptor” is any indication of what's to come, we're in for a real treat. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 9, 2016

    I had no expectations going in to this first issue, I hadn't even paid attention as to the creative team. I'm so glad I picked up this first issue. Such a fun solid start that has me wanting to check out the next issue, and maybe see what else I've been missing from Heavy Metal. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield Nov 2, 2015

    Cates and Burnett have given themselves a heap of ideas and contrivances to juggle and explore, but hopefully the getting everyone up to speed portion is set in stone and the focus can shift firmly on developing two irresistibly captivating female leads in a richly realized setting. An aggressive salvo of an opening issue that accomplishes everything a #1 is supposed to including a tantalizing premise, rich and engaging characters, effervescently mesmerizing visuals, and the promise of an absolute planet-wide frenzy of vampiric future sci-fi war. Welcome to Earth. Read Full Review

    GWW - Enrique Rea Jan 8, 2016

    ‘Interceptor' #1 is a fantastic addition to Heavy Metal's fledgling comic book division. It's already off to a promising start with much of the exposition and backstory out of the way the perilous mission on the vampire-controlled earth can begin. You can't go wrong with an interstellar vampire space adventure with two courageous girls as its leads. If we've learned anything from the movies over the last year is that women rule and that's just the cherry on top for ‘Interceptor.' Read Full Review
