    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Feb 14, 2018

    'Port of Earth' is a solid series that treats an alien partnership like the business transaction that it is with all the political trappings and conflicts that come along with it. In issue four, circumstances make this a turning point that could reveal all the ugly dealings made behind closed doors while increased alien-related violence could expose an even larger threat. Kaplan and Mutti have a smart, intriguing, sci-fi drama and just need to stick the landing on closing out the first arc. Read Full Review

    Mutti again provides some great art that really helps to sell the tone of the book. Unfortunately, he wasn’t given much to work with as most of the issue was relegated to a boring, industrial factory. This was probably my least favorite issue so far but the story potential is still very promising. It’s worth staying to hopefully see the creative team find their legs and continue to build an interesting world. Read Full Review

    Despite the latest issue of Port of Earth failing to capture the momentum found in prior issues, it remains a beautiful reading experience that utilizes a sci-fi story to explore various societal issues found in todays world. Though not the series strongest entry to date, an unforeseen, but all too familiar revelation at the end will undoubtedly have readers checking back for more. Read Full Review
