    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Oct 28, 2017

    This issue keeps the momentum going from issue 1 and proceeds at a stately pace. From the very first page it grips the reader into the story and there is an all pervading sense of an accomplished creative team at work in this book. Yet again the title strikes the right balance between the information it gives us, and the information it deliberately holds back. The fact that you still come away satisfied results from the confident mode of storytelling, and the delicious artwork. Warning though, this issue gets pretty grizzly at times so it may not be to everyone's taste. I am, however, hooked and can't wait for the next installment. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - David Conine aka Ghostwriter Nov 10, 2017

    I find Gasolina an intriguing piece of work that leaves me wanting more. The whole premise of the book is enticing, my only complaint is that each issue seems like a teaser and leaves me craving more. Read Full Review

    Fans of suspense comics such as The Black Monday Murders and/or Kill or Be Killed may see this as an off-week filler series with potential for expansion into a full-blown international crime drama centered around drug cartels, black magic, and murder. With the improvements noted, Gasolina has earned my money for another month but remains far behind other titles in the genre. Read Full Review

    I like certain aspects of the story, but there is a lot going on that I think takes away from the focal point of the story. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Frantz Jerome Oct 25, 2017

    Gasolina is shaping up to be a gem in its genre if you can pin it to just one genre. The grimy atmosphere, clean artwork, and keen writing keep me coming back for more despite some muddled storytelling this go-round. Read Full Review
