    Roche Limit #2 is intriguing and the leaves readers with not just one, but multiple hooks to keep us interested. Its a book with fabulous art and a well-constructed story that is mentally engaging on numerous levels and has a lot to offer to readers. Its bigger than we are. After reading the story and researching the theoreticallimit known as the Roche limit or Roche radius, it is clear that whatever the story is that this team is telling us, one thing is certain we are small and the universe is simply more amazing than we can fathom, but we shouldnt stop trying.

    Comix I Read - Boris Roberto Aguilar Oct 30, 2014

    There seems to be something very dangerous at play at Roche Limit. This issue continues to explore Roche Limit's past while preparing the readers for the future. This issue is arguably better than the last issue as it can go deeper in the elaborate world created by Malhorta and Moreci. The character development, story progression and fantastic art make Roche Limit a must read.  Read Full Review

    The beauty of Roche Limit is that it's merging all of the best elements of science fiction with some great noir tropes. It's a heady, futuristic tale that is humanized by a mystery that pulls you in with each page. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Torin Chambers Oct 29, 2014

    In a lot of ways Roche Limit #2 is even better than #1, our cast of characters has been significantly broadened and details of the bigger story are coming into focus. It's a testament to Moreci that each and every single one are enthralling in their own way. They all feel like genuine people too, who have real personalities and not stereotypes. Roche Limit is blowing up right now, make sure you don't get left behind. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Oct 29, 2014

    Roche Limit #2 is a solid follow up to a strong debut for the creator-owned series that feels like it is going all out…and succeeding. Moreci and Malhotra are building a world and telling a character driven story all at once, an ambitious goal that they are achieving so far. The design of this book is great, with integration of corporate-style infographics juxtaposing with Malhotra's artwork well, giving Roche Limit a very unique feel. If you are a noir fan, or someone who enjoys gritty comics with a bit of a scientific flair, I highly recommend Roche Limit. Moreci and Malhotra are delivering some of their best work I have ever read. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Oct 28, 2014

    The most intriguing elements of Roche Limit thus far are the actions and intentions of the scientist that has been shown and referenced. The man with the limp seems to be plotting something, but Moreci has given little acknowledgment as to what that might be. Though it is still early on in the series, this issue takes too long on its other sequences, leaving little time for its most engaging plot. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steven E. Paugh Oct 29, 2014

    Even though I wasn't a huge fan of this issue, I'm going to stick with Roche Limit. I think Moreci and co. have some very interesting things planned for this series, and I want to be there when it all unfurls. I'll just chalk this one up to the creative team needing to fit the story into a trade, and hope that its pacing finds its own Roche limit soon. Otherwise, this thing is going to collapse under far too oppressive a gravity. Read Full Review
