    Comic Bastards - Eric Biewenga Mar 28, 2013

    There is so much to this book and wraps the story up very well. I went through it twice because I liked it so much and I picked up on more details the more I went through it. This last issue gave me the desire to go through the entire series from start to finish. It shows the character journey that Silas goes through. Pick them all up if you find them all or at least this issue if you haven’t checked it out before since it does a great job of standing on its own. Read Full Review

    Planetoid has been a truly remarkable debut for creator Ken Garing. It wasn't enough that he handled all of the creative work himself, but he also managed to make it good,damn good. Planetoid will rank among my favourite mini-series from the past year and is definitely something I recommend for readers that enjoy venturing away from capes and tights. And don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for Ken's next project! Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Mar 29, 2013

    Taken as a whole, it's pretty cool just how much story and the wide span of time Garing has packed into these 5 issues. When this is collected, the existence of this story will be that much more impressive and the strength of the storytelling will be much more apparent. It hurt that this final issue spent months and months in a delayed limbo. Hopefully comic shop goers have kept it in the back of their minds, because a one-man operation this impressive shouldn't be missed by anybody. “Planetoid” is a terrific effort from a new creative talent that very clearly has the brightest of futures in the comic book industry.

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Mar 27, 2013

    Planetoid has been a great pleasure to follow. Ken Garing has slowly built this wonderful story up over the course of these five issues, and while I'm sad to see it end, Planetoid #5 was a great note to go out on. There were a lot of great moments in this issue, and they will not be soon forgotten. It was brutal, it was harsh, and it was beautiful. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Mar 27, 2013

    In closing, I'd say this is a fairly impressive finish. In only 5 issues, Planetoid has been a fun, yet deep enough, adventure in a hostile, gritty science fiction setting. Also, there's a robot dinosaur at various points. Does it need to make sense? Not really; its just awesome. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Mar 27, 2013

    I’ve said this before in a previous review, if you’re a fan of movies like The Terminator, Mad Max, sci-fi schlock like Spacehunter : Adventures in the Forbidden Zone & Soldier (yeah I know it’s pretty bad, but in a good way) then this series if definitely for you. Get the comics or better yet just wait for the TPB, you won’t regret it. I can’t wait to see what Ken Garing does next. It’s funny, in my review for Planetoid #1 I said to disregard this comic, but I’m glad I gave it another chance. This issue gets an 8 and the entire story arc gets a 9. Click here for my reviews on #1, #2, #3 & #4. Read Full Review

    __ $3, 32pgs! NO ADs, ALL comic! ___ Ken Garing does an excellent job of wrapping up this sci-fi space marooning min series. Not only does he knock it out of the park with 32, AD FREE pages of glorious color comics, its just a great action packed finale with a heroic twist and and very sweet epilog. My hats off to Mr.Garing, i look forward to any all work from him in the future. He has certainly proven himself a well rounded creator capable of producing his vision across the board from writing to art, colors, even lettering. And in return for a delay in the last issue, we get 32 pages for only $3, wow!
