Lloyd believes as much as a boy ever has. As such, he's ready to be heartbroken. In the sixth of seven stories set around a single club night, we join the fledgling phonomancer as he sifts through the evening's wreckage and tries to piece together meaning with glue, scissors and magic. Complete with two back-up stories with art from PJ HOLDEN (2000AD, FEARLESS) and ADAM CADWELL (The Everyday).

    The issue is also rounded out by two more b-sides, both starring Kohl (David, not Helmut). In the first, PJ Holden's dark and moody visuals perfectly evoke the kind of provincial drinking establishment the story is set in, and briefly return "Phonogram" to its "Hellblazer"-tinged past. Elsewhere, Cadwell's clean lines and vivid colors are an instant fit for the Phonoverse, and for someone more familiar with smaller chunks of art from his webcomic, "The Everyday," it's a treat to see him tackling full-size storytelling and composition. His is clearly a name to watch out for in the future, but then that seems to be true of just about everyone who touches "Phonogram." Read Full Review

    This might not be quite the strongest issue of Phonogram 2 yet, as I think others have offered a more consistent overall package, but that hardly matters in the end. This is easily the best book I've read all week. But praise like that should come as no surprise to the Phonogram faithful by now. Read Full Review

    I follow both Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie on Twitter, and all indications are that this could be the last we see of Phonogram, at least for a while. The sales just arent there for a third season. This is incredibly sad. I can only hope that an eventual trade paperback collection is able to give this book new life. Read Full Review
