    This is a great comic. This book is filled with heart that is felt in every panel. This is not just an ode to the medium comic fans love, but it’s one of the best stories currently being told in it. This is comic books in excelsis. I highly recommend this book. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Geoffrey Luu Jan 8, 2020

    Olympia #2 is mostly a step forward in terms of story but a step back in terms of its characters. Concepts from the first issue that could be worth exploring aren't fully utilized and the issue feels too caught up in Kirby homage rather than making its characters feel unique and interesting. It's not a bad issue, as the story is still decently strong, but given the potential of the series' debut and the huge amount of work that it still needs to do to avoid being strictly derivative of the classic Kirby comics, it's sadly not as good as I hoped it would be.

    I don't like being a prick when it comes to books like this. It takes a lot of time, money, and energy to produce the final product that I'm reviewing. I understand for the creators that this was their life for months, if not years. I take no enjoyment in calling this book sub-par but that's what it is when held to the same standard as the rest of the industry. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Lenora Pentecost Feb 4, 2020

    While Olympia #2 (Pires, Diotto, Cunniffe, Myers) is attempting to develop some sort of nostalgic charm, it falls flat under the lightest scrutiny, relying too much on a mix of homage and shock value. Read Full Review

    Elon is a protagonist with so few memorable features that it's difficult to remember his name between pages. Read Full Review
