Humanity has not yet reached for the stars, but the Solar System is still a busy, exciting, and sometimes very dangerous place, as young Eddie Wallace is about to discover, when he joins the crew of a freighter that hauls cargo along THE HIGH WAYS. John Byrne's all-new, space-faring series begins here!

    Comics Crux - Tatiana Christian Jan 16, 2013

    The only awkward thing about The Highways is how the panels are placed. It seemed atypical than what I normally read, and it was difficult to really follow along at first. Hopefully, by the next issue, I'll get used to it and it won't be a problem. I'm looking forward to issue #2.  Read Full Review

    It's sad that there's so little "real" science fiction represented in comics (not to mention high quality SF), so we have to treasure it when it arrives. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Shane Hannafey Oct 16, 2013

    The art is very fitting of a science fiction comic. Some great outer space scenes, fun characters and exciting action scenes are penciled beautifully giving you a cinematic feel. This is a fun read and definitely worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jan 16, 2013

    There's nothing like a John Byrne comic to lighten up the week. Being a fan from when I started reading comics, it's always a treat to see what he comes up with next. This space story is easily accessible to anyone willing to give something new a try. The set up is well explained and as we get to know the main characters, we start to see there is something else going on in the story, paving the way for the rest of the miniseries. After reading this first issue I'm still not completely sure what Byrne has planned but that is totally alight. I love sci-fi and it's not often I can tolerate the bright colors of a sci-fi comic. The colors combined with Byrne's art works here. Now comes the hard part in waiting for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Jan 17, 2013

    While it's anybody's guess as to how Byrne is going to flesh out a whole story with just three more issues to work with, overall, this is a campy but intelligent start to a brand new sci-fi miniseries. It's probably not for everyone " it is so very 80s " but it holds together well and looks great. Fans of Byrne's work should find plenty to enjoy here. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Jan 16, 2013

    In the hilarious dialogue of one of his characters, "Space law doesn't allow much wiggle room." Damn, confining "space law." Well, in the same way, good taste doesn't offer much wiggle room, either, and here, it's downright paralyzed. Like I said before, it's really fun to see John Byrne working in outer space, at least visually. I just wish his stories didn't exist in a vacuum these days, too. Read Full Review
