    Issue 1 was rated five starts and Issue 2 is on track for the same thumbs up. Even if a space-crime-drama does not sound like your genre of choice, you should still pick up an issue of Satellite Falling. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Ross Sweeney Jun 1, 2016

    After that absolutely essential opening, the story is now settling into its sense of self and pace, and given that barely any time has been spent world-building, its genuinely jaw-dropping quite how familiar this world is starting to feel. Even as a stand-alone issue – detached final pages aside – it reads like a complete piece, throwing down stakes, raising them, and having our hero overcome them it a pleasingly inelegant, yet immensely effective manner. This remains a series that you absolutely must get aboard – seriously, just go out and buy it already. Read Full Review

    This is science fiction fun with a lot of action, cool ideas, and expressive interesting characters on display. If you love Fifth Element you owe yourself to read this comic. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 28, 2016

    The second installment of Satellite Falling keeps the momentum moving forward pretty well as there's a good bit of energy in here. Chase material is always a little dicey but Horton and Thompson bring it together well here to keep it going while revealing a little bit more about Lilly. The bigger picture for the opening arc is coming into focus more here as well and I'm curious to see what direction they'll take with it since it can go any number of ways, one of the beautiful things about science fiction. I'm enjoying the book and what it's presenting and hoping that it'll start digging a little deeper as it goes on and the comfort and familiarity level with the world that they're creating goes up.

    Doom Rocket - Brandy Dykhuizen May 26, 2016

    Satellite Falling is more than a high-speed chase through tangled love stories. While all the action is fun, engaging and deftly portrayed, it's the underlying themes of identity and trust that really make this book rise above the fray. Both Horton and Thompson are experts at balancing subtlety amidst the forces of overt turmoil, for an intriguing and visually sensational read. Read Full Review
