Poli (the titular Interceptor herself) and Weep (badass rebel kid) find themselves at the mercy of Sherriff Arden Reeve and the blood-drunk Baroness of the North, Matilda. Trapped in a vampire prison, surrounded on all sides and dangerously pissed off, Poli and Weep fight for survival as the fates of two worlds hang in the balance! From Donny Cates and Dylan Burnett with a variant cover from Nick "actual vampire" Pitarra (The Manhattan Projects).

    'Interceptor' is determined to give you your money's worth. This is a visceral experience that drops you in the middle of the action and dares you to hold on. If Mad Max and Aliens had a baby it would be Interceptor. Cates and Burnett are giving Heavy Metal the hardcore action, sci-fi, monster, extravaganza it deserves. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Feb 14, 2016

    Interceptor is one of the most fun comics on the stands today.  Look no further than the expression of sheer joy on Weep's face as she slaughters vampires to get an idea of what to expect.  Poli came here to put an end to the vampire threat, but now she's getting roped into the rebellion, which is a very different task.  This is no longer a solo mission.  Can she play nice with others?  I can't wait to find out.

    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Feb 17, 2016

    Interceptor #2 is a great follow-up to the debut issue that left many impressed. The second issue certainly keeps up the tradition as it is truly impressive and does a great job of building the current characters while introducing new characters in the mix. Be sure to follow this Heavy Metal title. It is going to be a major success! Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Feb 15, 2016

    Interceptor #2 is a rip-roaring adventure. It has excellent action sequences, compelling characters, and a multi-layered story. The action is fast-paced, violent, gory, and exciting. The dialogue is compelling and brings out the characters' personalities. If you are looking for a fun, violent, adventure story, you should pick up this book. It's great. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 9, 2016

    Perhaps the reason why is that Interceptor is not the kind of book that is meant to make heady judgment calls about the efficacy of war. This is the kind of book that grabs you sheerly on the strength of its high concept and its visual execution - it's the sort of visceral pleasure and deliberate design that made movies like Mad Max: Fury Road such a box office smash. If this creative team can keep the pedal to the metal and keep giving us more vampires, more combat, more sci-fi, Interceptor is going to make for a strong forerunner for Heavy Metal comic books.

    Comix I Read - Kyle Pitman Feb 11, 2016

    If you're aching for some light-hearted action/adventure, you wouldn't be in the wrong to pick up Interceptor #2. It'll suck you right into it's world and invest you with it's characters, all while leaving hope that there's plenty more to come for next month. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Feb 10, 2016

    Interceptor is a goddamn romp. It's entertaining and just two issues in and I'm really hooked. The story is all Cates, you can tell even if you didn't know he was writing it and the art team is a break out hit already. Now I will say that if Heavy Metal continues producing comics like this and Narcopolis, then they just might leave in impression on the industry in a way they haven't done since the 80s.

    Comic Crusaders - Dylan Hicks Feb 12, 2016

    Interceptor is definitely something to keep in mind if you are looking for some obscure sci-fi. There are a couple of minor complications in the dialogue, but that should not deter from the obvious talent this creative team has. Both Donny and Dylan seem to be having a lot of fun with this series, and they have a lot of coals in the fire. I am interested to see what comes next, and I suggest picking this one up.

    With a few flaws in the storytelling technique the second issue of Interceptor may have stumbled a bit, but it is still worthwhile read with potentially great things to come. Read Full Review
