    If you like this kind of story, I highly recommend this title. It's something along the lines of Gotham Central, but looking through the prism of younger eyes instead of police officers. If you can get the previous issues, I'd seriously recommend that since it will help you understand all that's happening. Still, an engaging comic for sure! Read Full Review

    Plutona is getting better and better with every issue. It is definitely getting weirder, in the best way possible. There are a bunch of directions it could go, so I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens. Will Diane lose her friends? Are Mie and Ray going to get together? Will “Tugger” and Mike turn into superheroes? It’s insanity! Read Full Review

    Oddly enough, the least interesting aspect to me personally thus far is the actual backstory to the character Plutona herself. It seems we'll continue to see flashbacks of Plutona leading to her being laid out in the woods, but even with as good as the writers have been with space management, there just isn't enough of it to really develop that backstory. Instead, readers get snippets so short that they likely forgot what even happened in the previous one. It doesn't hurt the series too badly because the present-day story is still great, but I've been very "meh" on the flashbacks thus far. They just don't have the time they deserve. In the words of Ron Swanson, "Never half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing." Fortunately for us, the important part is still good. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Dec 2, 2015

    With another dark ending and much uncertainty, Plutona is beautifully captivating. It is a series that almost needs no story for how well crafted and engaging the creators have made their characters and universe. Still, it is all the more delightful to have the mystery of Plutona running behind it all. With so much to love about the series, the next issue is certainly anticipated highly. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Brandy Dykhuizen Dec 7, 2015

    In the final panels, we see Plutona's daughter witness her mother's final battle. We do not yet know if she was privy to her mother's actual death, or if she will choose to stand by her precocious advice (that to kill the White Wasp would make Plutona no better than her adversary), or if she'll choose instead to avenge her mother's death. It's likely that everyone involved in Plutona will face more crisis in the immediate future, forced to make decisions far beyond their tender years. Read Full Review

    PopOptiq - Erin Perry Dec 10, 2015

    In short, this issue was a disappointment after the first two. While there are a couple brilliant moments of storytelling, the bulk feels like filler material bridging between the set-up and the climax. Read Full Review
