    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Mar 11, 2021

    One of the most original comics currently on the market, it’s clear that the story is only just beginning, and there is still so much more of the rich mythology to explore. Watters and Wijngaard make a great partnership, and this comic is one that is going to be talked about for a long time. It’s only four issues in, if you haven’t picked it up yet you want to get on board this comic now, it’s fantastic. Original concept, stunning art, excellent writing, a true showcase of why comics are such a great storytelling medium. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 10, 2021

    Much like his work on  Coffinbound, Watters scripting for Home Sick Pilots has leaned heavily into the art to tell the story. Theres a tremendous amount of trust in the artist to deliver the bulk of whats going on thats paid-off quite well in Watters work. Watters approach has been impressive. Give the artist the freedom to work on the visuals without too much dialogue, and you just might end up with something beautiful.  Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 9, 2021

    Home Sick Pilots is a comic series that makes you pay attention, makes you care, and defies expectations. It's brilliantly original and a work you can't look away from. Read Full Review

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Mar 9, 2021

    Reading 'Home Sick Pilots' has been a complicated journey so far but with issue four, the story is beginning to make more sense and take some leaps forward while also remaining mysterious. The band reunites, albeit momentarily, and not in the way you'd expect or hoped for. This issue is a blockbuster for the series and the creative team. Watters and Wijngaard just flexed their generous muscles on this one and it's awesome. Read Full Review

    A new set of black ops characters can only spell trouble for Ami and the old James House. Although the haunted house in question is certainly giving Ami enough trouble of its own as she discovers their relationship is not an equal one in Home Sick Pilots #4 from Dan Watters and Caspar Wijngaard.

    GWW - B Ferg Mar 9, 2021

    Issue # 4 may have seen the turning point for Ami and the Old James House in more ways than one. Both Buzz and the Monitor(s) (me again) seem interested in retrieving some of it's prior possessions. Also this issue shows that Ami's safety takes precedence over retrieving Ghost # 6, Ami's original mission. Is the Old James House choosing what stays and what goes? They say it's the little things that make a house a home. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 10, 2021

    Wijngaard crafts some beautiful and disturbing visuals throughout the issue. The action scenes work really well and there is a great tone to the art that reflects the tone and mood of the story and characters. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Mar 9, 2021

    I just don't know what to really think about Home Sick Pilots #4 or the series. Look, I am very much enjoying myself with each and every issue. It mixes and matches seriousness with fun. It is weird and interesting. I just wish I had a little more of the story to hold onto. We get some interesting developments in this issue, but it also opens up a whole new set of questions, while others have yet to be answered. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Danilo To Mar 14, 2021

    Home Sick Pilots' creative team continues to be amazing at what they're doing and deliver an original story and setting. The series' lore is yet to expand as we see in this issue and I'm excited for that most of all. I did like Watter's approach to describing an abusive relationship but there are still somethings I don't understand with this book. However, for this reviewer, this is all the more reason to keep reading it for now. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Mar 11, 2021

    In conclusion, I keep harping that this would be great tv series adaptation. So Not only do you want to pick up issue #1, but this one has a lot of 1st appearances as well. The sucess of Jupiter legacy will definitely factor into how fast this gets picked up. Read Full Review

    But why doesn't Home Sick Pilots finally stick the landing with Issue #4? Because every time the characters talk it's like rubbing a cheese grater on your brain. Read Full Review
