    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Feb 26, 2015

    “Roche Limit” pushed the boundaries of science fiction in many different ways and while this isn't the issue you want to jump in with, it does perfectly illustrate why this is going to be a must buy when the trade paperback is released. You want this and you won't regret buying it. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Mar 11, 2015

    There's a feeling of finality with this issue of Roche Limit, but also the dawn of a new chapter. Writer Michael Moreci ties up all of the loose ends of this first arc while opening the door for more questions leading into the second volume. He provides an actual end for these characters, some are noble, others covered in blood, but all of them were fighting for something. Roche Limit is a sci-fi epic with a real human connection. It's for fans of Blade Runner or Chinatown. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Nicholas Turner Feb 21, 2015

    This series is going places, both figuratively and literally. After finding out that this is only the first volume of three, my anticipation for these next two volumes in incomprehensible. This is a series that, in my personal opinion, pulled off the poignant theme of man's fate in the universe far better than Interstellar, due to its unyielding approach to the idea. Nothing here is sugar-coated. Once again, this series is going places and I hope more of you come along for the ride. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Dennis Burns Mar 2, 2015

    Moreci writes at the end of this issue that the next volume of Roche Limit (Clandestiny) will feature a new artist and it will be set 75 years after the events of this issue. I think this is a cool idea for organizing the trilogy, but it also means that these characters are all but dead to us now, as we fast forward in the next arc. I love the setting and lore that Moreci has taken care to explore, I just wish I felt the same connection to the characters and dialogue. Read Full Review

    Geek Sushi - Kyle Rowsey Feb 24, 2015

    The back-ups, in place of a letter's column, serve as world-building, advertisements, magazine articles and the like. This is a great supplement to the series with so much crammed into 5 issues, for your money there's very little you can find that packs this much punch into such a small package. A review isn't going to do this story justice, if any of it peaks your interest do yourself a favor and grab these 5 issues or get the trade collection. Read Full Review

    Comix I Read - Boris Roberto Aguilar Feb 23, 2015

    The first volume of Roche Limit is now over. The ending was well executed and the epilogue left the readers in suspense. I am really excited for the second arc/volume. I have very high expectations for this series. While I did nit pick a bit, I have nothing but praise for this issue (and arc). The constant theme of one's fate is an ongoing theme through the series and I hope that we get to explore this further. I also hope that we see various points of views within Roche Limit. I have so many questions about the universe that Michael Moreci and Vic Malhotra have created. I want more now! I highly recommend this issue and series to anyone. Check your LCS for the back issues. You can also wait until march 25th for the first collected edition of this series. Long story short and do yourself a favour – go out and read Roche Limit. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Cody Mudge Feb 26, 2015

    Roche Limit #5 is a satisfying conclusion to a compelling science-fiction noir comic. The tone of the work is deadly serious and occasionally dark and brooding, but that made the warmth of the characters all the more appealing. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Feb 26, 2015

    As Roche Limit #5 concludes, the ending is bittersweet. In many ways, the final moments between the leads and the adrenaline induced events of the final surge all deliver. But the lingering questions about these other elements begin to seep back in. It is only as a result of the series having so many great ideas and mysteries that this feeling comes about. It is to the credit of Moreci, Malhotra and Boyd that readers want even more from them. With the knowledge that a new arc lays ahead and a definitive end has already been established, it may be possible that some of these questions get answers in the future. Read Full Review
