    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Apr 9, 2015

    Of course, itd be a crime not to talk about the fantastic art of Andrei Bressan. He once again draws a beautiful issue with jaw dropping landscapes that complete the idyllic and relaxed pace for the most part of this issue. However, the highlight is our first ever look and The God King Lore, and man is he terrifying. After so much build up itd be easy to be cynical and imagine the payoff would be a disappointment, but nope, Lore is one of the most instantly terrifying and intimidating comic villains in a long time. His domain looks absolutely hellish and is the most impressively gruesome Bressan has been. After spending so much time drawing beautiful scenery and heroic action I cant wait to see more of this twisted, gruesome style Bressan has been hiding. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Apr 8, 2015

    BIRTHRIGHT #6 is made up of a lot of little, memorable moments that add an incredible amount of depth to the characters and story. The art and colors on this book are outstanding and visually stunning, especially during key turning points here. The story, on the surface, may not seem to move forward too much, but that's because the focus is more on the characters and developing relationships between them. This is one of the better issues of BIRTHRIGHT, in a series of great issues thus far. I highly recommend checking this series out. You won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Apr 8, 2015

    Birthright‘s second arc gets off to an amazing start, as though it was slightly disappointing to see so little of Terrenos, the character depth and development more than made up. The intense notion of symbolism also allows for some powerful moments, that result in this comic coming highly recommended. So if you're not currently getting this series, then do so now!

    Comic Spectrum - Bob Bretall Apr 25, 2015

    Fantasy fans like me who enjoy these kinds of “fish out of water” stories where a character is pulled out of one world and thrust into another should check this series out. Birthright layers this theme in a number of ways so far and it appears we'll be getting even more layers in upcoming issues. Creators Joshua Williamson and Andrei Bressan have created a cast of characters I really like, put them into a situation that I'm really curious how they're going to work their way out of, and made me care about that happening. Essential ingredients for me loving a series. I'm guessing that some of the plot points revealed so far are misdirection while others are seeding some serious conflict points to come. I'm looking forward to seeing where Williamson takes us in the upcoming story arcs. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Thomas Harbaugh Apr 8, 2015

    This is the start of a new arc for one of my favorite Image series, and should be the perfect incentive to start reading it. It's definitely my favorite issue, as of now, and it provides more than enough evidence as to what makes Birthright so great. Read Full Review

    Nerd Rock from the Sun - Trevor Coelho Aug 26, 2015

    Representing the start of a new story arc, issue 6 feels more like a bridge than anything else, something to connect the frantic first 5 issues with what will come in issues 7 onwards. A little slower than I'm used to from the series, but consistently entertaining, beautifully written and drawn. As with the issues before it, heartily recommended. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Apr 8, 2015

    Birthright #6 gives us more to wonder about this growing world(s), and sets us up for more exploration to come. All sides of this conflict are given proper time to develop and that is something which should be consistently pressed for as we are far from hitting that climax in this plot. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Josh Pierce Apr 7, 2015

    While reading the first volume would have been helpful for me to know what's going on, and who these characters are, but it wasn't a deal breaker for me. If you're interested in reading Birthright #6 seems to be a pretty easy jumping on point, and if you're into fantasy stories, then Birthright is a book you need to check out. The art is rad, the writing is good, and the two combined are going to give us one wild ride. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - ChrisG Apr 17, 2015

    It's good to have Birthright back. It's short hiatus was noticeable and It's great to be able to delve into this fantasy world again. The story is a slow burn fantasy that feels like it has a lot of story and character to show us. So far the journey has been excellent, with a creative team that clearly compliment each other in their storytelling techniques. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Apr 13, 2015

    "Birthright" #6 is a bridge issue, a brief rest in the story as the creative team builds from one story to the next. The characters were on the move so much in the first five issues that Williamson needed a chance to slow them down and bounce them off one another to find out who they are. It's a good character issue for fans of the book and a good jumping on point for new readers. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Apr 8, 2015

    When not content to simply let his art team run free, Williamson does a solid job checking in with the more Earth based members of his expansive tale. There's a nice bit between the Rhodes' parental units that stands out, but by and large the fun of the book revolves around Mikey and Brennan making up for lost bro time. It's here that the book's character work, particularly Mikey's, proves a bit divisive. It's tough to gauge in what light we're meant to view him"troubled solider, possessed lackey, returning hero"and as such some of his bits don't fully register. Add in the fact that Brennan's wait-a-minute" light bulb continues to be slow illuminating and you get an issue that's fun, but incomplete. Read Full Review
