    Adventureman #2 hits all the right notes. Claire and her son Tommy are quirky and close without being saccharine, and the background of 1930's pulp heroes is an irresistible draw. The art is super-fun and the plot is developing at the perfect pace. Now is the perfect time to get hooked on a thrilling tale like this one. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Jul 14, 2020

    The Adventureman team has successfully made me fall in love with a fictional family and a fictional character that two of those family members are fans of. This is distilled escapist speculative fiction at its fines and more than worthwhile to read this summer. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Jul 9, 2020

    Adventureman takes elements we have seen used before but pushes them into new directions, injects and incredible amount of joy and gives us an amazing heroine that we instantly can relate to and root for. The ending leaves us with the promise of more incredible stories to come. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Adam Brown Jul 8, 2020

    I could have as easily enjoyed a simple pulp tale of Adventum Worldwide, but this phased reality story really appeals. Were already in high gear so the test will be if Adventureman can hold its early momentum. It would also be remiss of me to not also mention the additional support material given in this issue. Good choices done with tact and decorum. Read Full Review

    This series is off to an unbelievable start! This concept by Fraction has been bouncing around in his mind since 2008. I am so excited that Adventureman has been unleashed on the world for all to read. And possibly Adventurewoman? It's going to be fun finding out! Read Full Review
