    With each new installment, Port of Earth becomes a more ambitious and impressive book. There aren't too many sci-fi-polictical-action-thrillers out there (this might actually be the only thing that fits that description), and the creative team has done a marvelous job building a world that is as engrossing and depressing as our own. In the space of three issues, Port of Earth has transitioned from a title worth checking out to an absolute must read. Read Full Review

    Port of Earth #3 continues a gripping story with compelling characters engaging in a fully realized and believable sci-fi world. Although the latest issue slows the pacing of the story, the parallels of our own society found within the narrative and the questions that come from them continue to make this series a must read!

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Jan 11, 2018

    'Port of Earth' is an intense thought-provoking sci-fi thriller. It's really a smart meditation on more than just a spaceport on earth. With such an agreement comes costs that aren't foreseen but Kaplan does a great job challenging our own attitudes about a shared galactic community. It's a subversive allegory to our world with the added bonus of a police procedural. Things end on a cliffhanger that sets up a confrontation we've been waiting for.  Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Jan 9, 2018

    Port of Earth #3 sacrifices some of the momentum gained from the last two issues, but it does so to place emphasis on Mac and Rice's relationship. Thanks to strong artwork and a solid script, Port of Earth #3 is a great book with an ending that promises an exciting follow-up issue. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Michael D Jan 10, 2018

    Kaplan and the rest of the creative team offer up another solid issue in a series with a completely fresh concept. They have created a world that I want to explore even if the characters are a bit thin. Read Full Review
