    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth May 20, 2021

    Home #2 continue its breakdown of the terrors of the American immigration system. Anta's script does a fantastic job of both being politically charged and telling a compelling, emotional story. The book works on multiple levels, and it's a joy to read, even if it does jerk the heartstrings. Wieszczyk's art doesn't seem like it should work with the subject matter, but it does brilliantly, really capturing the feeling of the whole thing. Home is a fantastic book, and this issue keeps that up. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder May 5, 2021

    Home is shaping up to be a story that will read brilliantly as a collection, but the single issues are solid additions to your pull. Anata and Wieszcyzk have put a lot of care into the characters and the story, and you can feel the passion they have to bring this modern generation superhero immigrant story to the page.

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea May 19, 2021

    'Home' #2 champion's the spirit of immigrants, Latinos specifically, to persevere in the face of dehumanizing cruelty. Issue two adds important context to the origins of Juan and Mercedes' journey from Guatemala and his sudden powers. It's infuriating, sad, inspiring, hopeful, and compelling. 'Home' will make you feel something as it mixes cold reality with the fantastical.    Read Full Review

    Caffeinated Critique - James Stone May 18, 2021

    This issue drives the story by slowly revealing more of Juan's powers but takes some huge steps forward in potential. The introduction of a new character gives Juan's journey more optimism while his mother Mercedes' future is still at great risk. This story feels honest and real with a wonderful element of fantasy.

    AIPT - Noelle Reyes May 18, 2021

    Home#2 is a refreshing representation of Latinx heroes in American comics and a powerful tale about the horrific risks of migration. Despite its serious subject matter and lack of subtlety when it comes to its racist antagonists and policies, Home #2 is still an uplifting story about family, love, and belonging. Read Full Review

    While there are some interesting elements in here, there is far too much-holding Home back from being one of the greats. Read Full Review

    Surprise surprise. Julio Anta not only propagates misleading information implicitly portraying whites as racist demons who hate anybody that's brown, but he also uses the term " Latinx" LOL. Reviewing this comic objectively I thought it to be slightly better than the first issue, which I felt was an absolute steaming pile of crap. Due to the race baiting, I could not score higher than a two.

    The life drawings still need work but the story is top-notch. This issue calls out ICE and also features a nice Caucasian father and son out hunting that try to help our protagonist... But notice how certain users will still characterize this book as somehow anti-white anyways. Interesting.
