    Simmonds' artistic style is irreverent and reminiscent. In general, the color tones of the PND world are dark, Simmonds craftily uses specific shades to wash certain pages and mark them as either flashing forward (red) or back (purple) in time. It's a stunning artistic choice with great narrative effect for the reader. But even with all of these visual cues and the "story so far" set up, PND needs to be read in its entirety in order to be properly enjoyed. Lucky for you issue #1 should still be available at your LCBS so you can start from the beginning of this masterful tale. Read Full Review

    This issue is a can’t miss. If you are new to the series, still pick it up. The “Story so far…” on the title page does a good job of getting you up to speed, so you have no excuses not to dive into the story. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 26, 2018

    Punks Not Dead #2 continues to deliver on the promise and potential presented by the premise and the premiere issue. No, I dont know why that was so alliterative, but thats not the point. The point is that Barnett, Simmonds, and Cunniffe deliver a damn solid comic, and it is definitely recommended. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Mar 21, 2018

    This Odd Couple of teenage angst and unfocused rebellion has enough personality and humor to start building momentum. Oh, and the encapsulation of adolescent torment with the Undertones reference is awesome. Teenage Kicks, indeed. Read Full Review
