    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Feb 16, 2022

    Primordial #6 is visual storytelling at its finest. Theres not a wasted image in the whole thing, and Sorrentino and Stewart are on fire throughout. Lemire makes the ending opaque, but that opacity sharpens the whole point of the book for what it really is- trying to get home. Everything else is just window dressing. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Feb 16, 2022

    Primordial #6 is a smart, beautifully executed, emotionally charged conclusion to a story that is masterfully told by the entire team on all levels in an open-ended manner. We are presented with an ending that could be the ultimate ending or a beginning depending on one interpretation of the events presented on the final pages. It's brilliant emotion-laden Sci-fi that makes you think which is in my opinion the best kind. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Feb 17, 2022

    I probably could have used a dozen more issues of this science fiction epic, but by that same virtue, the six-issue mini-series laid out an incredible journey through space and time, and I couldn't really ask for that much more at the end of it. Read Full Review
