It's three months since a haunted house walked through Santa Manos - and now the US military would like a walking ghost-powered weapon of their very own, thank you very much. The Home Sick Pilots might be the key to their getting one. If they can be convinced to sell out, that is.

    Home Sick Pilots #6 moves the action to the Nevada desert and we catch up with the remaining survivors as they embrace on a new chapter of their lives. A chapter they never asked for in the genre-breaking series that's only juts getting started. A welcome return! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 23, 2021

    With just the right mix of interpersonal drama, action, and supernatural horror, Watters story is gradually revealing itself to be a truly unique fusion. Wijngaards strikingly vivid art brings the story to the page in a way that fuses well with Watters scripting. There are countless potential paths that Meg and Rip could stumble through in the coming issues. Thanks to some very sharp characterization, the pair are as deeply engaging on the comics page as they are in their dialogue.  Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Jun 22, 2021

    The first story arc was a consistently good and surprising story, and it would have been an easy trap to fall into to just carry on with more of the same as this second part kicks off, but it continues to innovate and surprise readers. The mythology is rich and layered, and feels barely explored. The characters are relatable and real. The story consistently twists and turns, never taking the expected route. Incredible art with some fantastic designs. There is so much potential here, jump on board this crazy train now before it really takes off. Not to be missed. This comic is special and deserves to reach a wide audience. Read Full Review

    Home Sick Pilots kicks off its second story arc with a measured issue that establishes key players and new locations well. The chaotic elements of the first story arc are switched out for a lot more control here, which lets the scary elements scream through even louder when they do pop up. Home Sick Pilots continues to be the most exciting take on ghosts in the horror genre in some time. Read Full Review

    Wijngaard does some great work with both the characters and the action in this issue. There are some awesome horror moments in the beginning of the story and I was really impressed with the detailed backgrounds and use of shadow. Read Full Review

    While I struggled with the series' opening arc, Home Sick Pilots #6 does an excellent job of reintroducing its concept in a fashion that's inviting and might even make those first 5 issues more accessible. Read Full Review

    But, man do I really continue to like it and want more at the same time. These ghosts/mech/creature things continue to be great. I mean you mention '90s power rangers, punk rock and giant battles I am coming for more. Read Full Review
