    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Nov 3, 2021

    PRIMORDIAL #2 is one of those rare second issues that manages to outshine it's excellent debut issue as the creative team sucks you in with a brilliantly laid out yarn in both word and form that injects a massive layer of emotional investment into this sci-fi/noir thriller and takes you on a journey with its characters and plays up the mystery at the same time in a thrilling journey leaving you clambering to know more by its end.

    Like I said at the start of the review from Primordial #2, getting to watch a creative team hit a home run with an earlier series and then proceed to reunite and hit another home run is nothing but awe-inspiring. The words and narrative of Lemire have given Sorrentino and Stewart an incredible scaffolding to showcase an endless thrilling world that has me itching for the next issue. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Nov 10, 2021

    Primordial #2 is visual storytelling at its finest. Lemire takes a step back and lets Sorrentino and Stewart tell the story, and the effect is breathtaking. The book's plot is still inscrutable, but that's okay because this issue is a work of art. Read Full Review

    Sorrentino and Lemire use the visual language introduced in Primordial #1 to twist space-time and shift perspectives so that few words are required to explore the dog's journey. Even as they provide the animals with some recognizable language, the majority of communication is visual with precisely selected panels and clear expressions across multiple styles.

    All but dropping its human narrative, Primordial uses its second issue to let us hang out with a space dog and be awed by the implications of the infinite. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Kevin Mwenda Jan 20, 2022

    Primordial #2 story is quite vague and not easily understandable without prior knowledge of its background. The fragmentation of the narrative across time and space makes it hard to follow or understand what is happening. Some of the panels are also blurry and it is hard to make out the actual characters, seen in the darker panels. From my perspective, the artwork is nothing to write home about and the fragmented storyline takes away from the story's linear progression. The lack of a clear path and the disconnect created by the blurry artwork takes away from the comic making it too simple and non-memorable. Read Full Review
