    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Jan 12, 2021

    The debut issue made an excellent first impression, now that we’re beginning to settle into the larger series it’s obvious that all the favourable reviews were earned, and this is a series to jump on board now. A mesh of so many different genres it would be a disservice to try to boil it down to just one. This comic is an excellent demonstration of creators who understand the strengths of the medium and have crafted something which will appeal to any and all comic book fans. Pick this series up now, while it's just starting. You won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - CJ Jan 14, 2021

    Home Sick Pilots #2 continues to blend horror and anime elements while presenting a realistic look at the ongoing effects of trauma. With the central conceit of the series established, the creative team can now continue to weave their haunted house rock opera, which continues Image Comics' trend of compelling creator-owned comics.

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 12, 2021

    'Home Sick Pilots' is a supernatural horror that has the stylistic resources to match the freshness of its ideas. The second issue improves on the already exciting first issue in ways that will challenge what you think a comic book can do. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - christopher scott author Jan 13, 2021

    Home Sick Pilots #2 moves the story along as well as delivering the backstory of Ami and her friends. It's a solid horror story that feels like some classics in the genre. It's not completely clear what's going on but what has been presented is surely interesting and well worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Mark Scott Jan 19, 2021

    There is a lot going on in this series, and a lot to like. As I said earlier, I think that this is aimed at the YA audience, but its a bit close to the knuckle in places for the younger end of the market and I may review this assessment when Ive read more issues. If youre a YA horror fan then this is an absolute must read. However, if youre a mature reader then I still think this should still be considered a must read, as there are some darker aspects that are well worth your attention. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 13, 2021

    Caspar Wijngaard does a great job with the art in the issue. The characters are vibrant and interesting and the supernatural elements are done very well. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jan 12, 2021

    Home Sick Pilots #2 is an odd book. From a high school punk band finding a place to do a show, to a girl dealing with her own self and tragedy by becoming a specter of a house and findings its lost objects, it is a weird setup. But man, I am certainly digging it right now. I won't say it is perfect, but I find myself captivated by it. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Danilo To Jan 19, 2021

    Readers beware! This is not a nice story about drivers missing their homes. This is an incredible horror comic book about fitting in and handling change. With a talented creative team working together this series is bound to enter the industry's history with a nice change to the haunted manor story frame. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jan 22, 2021

    Home Sick Pilots has taken some twists and turns with this issue. I feel like I'm playing catch-up a bit, but I'm still very much intrigued. This mesh of fantasy and reality is going to cause some great drama. It's already led to some bloodshed and it's clear this place isn't done. It's one thing to have a haunted house, but it's quite another to have one that can move around or send out soldiers to do its bidding. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Brendan M. Allen Jan 15, 2021

    The second chapter of Home Sick Pilots doesn't quite live up to last month's installment. It is a pretty book, but I'm not sure I'm looking for ‘pretty' in a hardcore punk horror book. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Jan 13, 2021

    'Home Sick Pilots' #2 picks up where the first issue left off but jumps the gun in diving into an emotional storyline that doesn't resonate. New revelations about what the House wants and how it'll go about getting it does provide an exciting angle going forward. There are enough mysteries and supernatural shenanigans going on, beautifully designed by Wijngaard, to keep readers hooked for now.  Read Full Review

    The artwork is still great and there's a fun horror-themed reinterpretation of the "Lucky Horseshoe," but the character dialogue is still teeth-grindingly annoying. Read Full Review
