    As exciting and visually stunning as you could ask for. This is what comic books should be. Intelligent writing and sumptuous visuals make it a pleasure to take in. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Josh Owens Feb 26, 2015

    Suffice it to say, this issue executes perfectly on all fronts. The emotional payoff is huge, characters remain flawed and real, and the lack of a "happily ever after" all make for one of the most relatable and heartfelt books it has been my pleasure to read. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Forrest Hollingsworth Feb 25, 2015

    This single issue is strong enough to stand on its own, it could be the first issue of Low honestly, but it isn’t and that’s saying something. The emotional buildup and payoff that these creators have established is simply impressive and they show no signs of stopping now. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Ross Sweeney Feb 24, 2015

    All-in-all, its a fantastic end to another fantastic first slice of Remender science fiction that both satisfies in and of itself, and creates a distinct appetite for more going forward. Well played, gentlemen, well played. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Cody Mudge Feb 26, 2015

    Low #6 really feels like that for Remender and Tocchini despite a couple of stumbles along the way. If you were waiting to see how this first story-arc would turn out then Id argue in favour of it being a genuinely compelling series that warrants your support going farther. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Feb 26, 2015

    Low #6brings some of the biggest action of the series and also gives you plenty of those feels (get some tissues ready…it's okay…it'll be okay). Remender and Tocchini finish stage one of Stel's journey with a grand finish – but now what will happen next?! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Marykate Jasper Mar 2, 2015

    Despite my reservations, "Low" has such a cool world, and Remender isn't afraid to challenge his characters and let them struggle. I appreciate that bravery, and it bodes well for the next arc. However, the real benefit of putting characters through the ringer is that we get to see them develop; here's hoping there's more of that on the way. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Feb 26, 2015

    Low's first arc reaches its explosive conclusion, Rick Remender taking the world he's so carefully cultivated and turning it upside down like a snow globe. The resulting finale leads to a slew of new and enticing questions, but it also fails to fully tie up (or even address) those that came before. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - louis whiteford Feb 28, 2015

    Tocchini crafts some devastating action out of his increasingly cool world, with some astounding, heavily paneled pages. He also uses the page itself for grand emotional effects, drawing panels that go all the way to edge as a means of creating tension. He repeats the trick on the last page for a touching moment instead, and it's just as great. This comic is worth it for Tocchini's art. He knows when to pull back, when to go nuts and how much space to leave in the background to draw an awesome submarine. The story's good too, but not quite as enticing. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Nick Philpott Feb 25, 2015

    Obviously, there's something I'm missing. This series has been popular since its launch (although, again, I would say not as popular as Black Science, or even Deadly Class), and it's another in a line of titles by Remender that just don't grab me. In general, I try to review by Goethe's guidelines: What was the author trying to do; did they do it well; was it worth doing. At this point, I have to assume there's another reviewer on our staff who gets this book, because it certainly isn't me. I don't have any more to say here that hasn't been said before.
