    Stjepan's art here is really dynamic and vivid, as it has always been across his many different books. It amazes me to see that not only is he turning out some great artwork on IXth Generation, but that he's also doing the same on his creator-owned titled Death Vigil, which was a breakout hit for me last year and continues to be awesome. The scenes of the fight against the monsters of The Darkness, the facial expressions among the IXs whenever they get together for their meetings, and the general characterwork and backgrounds are impressive as well. This comic is a must-read just because of the art alone. Read Full Review

    It seems to be a fairly common occurrence with books coming out from Image Comics or any of its imprints, especially Top Cow these days, but this is another great series.IXth Generationis building to something huge and likely something that is going to completely change this end of the Top Cow Universe for the foreseeable future. Its hard to tell just where Hawkins and Sejic are taking this, and maybe thats just due to being so far behind on a lot of the series that are in play here, but its going to be exciting finding out. In Top Cow we trust, particularly when it comes to Hawkins and Sejic. Check this out. Read Full Review

    IXth Generation continues to bridge the gaps between the Top Cow Universe wonderfully, with the concept of Aphrodite IX wielding the Witchblade being truly astonishing. The story also takes some gripping twists, with there being some shocking moments throughout. Read Full Review

    AIPT - John F. Trent Feb 18, 2015

    IXth Generation #2 is a fun sci-fi story with a lot going for it from political back stabbings and machinations to mysterious ancient villains. You can find it all in this comic and Hawkins and Sejic do a good job of balancing it. There is one sequence where they aren't creating mystery or providing new knowledge of the world that is a little slow; however, this is offset by some good dialogue and artwork providing a fun and enjoyable read that also makes you think just a bit.
