    Bring on October and issue #6! The final panel/page for this issue is an absolute rocker and I really can't wait to see what exactly Matt and Stjepan have in store next. It was a really exciting ending and also completely unexpected, so bonus points there! Read Full Review

    Aphrodite IX #5 is an excellent release that flows with the essence of what make this universe unique. If you like science fiction with more than a few moral quandaries embedded within its text than this title deserves to be on your pull-list. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Definitely one of the most entertaining, innovative and beautifully rendered books on the market right now. I would pick it up for the art alone but this really is the whole package. Read Full Review

    Aphrodite IX #5 wont change the landscape of the medium, but that is a lofty bill to complete. However, it is the product of two individuals who are clearly very passionate about the story they are telling and the work that they do. This translates to the page, as this latest installment of an already incredibly interesting series takes readers into some exciting new territory, while providing a whole lot of action and intelligent, thought-provoking material.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 18, 2013

    If you haven't been following the series then this isn't a great issue to jump on board with, but I'm sure the next one will offer a place to start. Otherwise you could hit up a digital storefront and buy the back issues or wait for the trade. Whatever you do, you should definitely check this series out as it combines Sci-fi and Assassins" kind of a no-brainer to like it when I put it that way. Read Full Review
