    On Comics Ground - Elizabeth Fazzio Feb 13, 2020

    I was a little thrown by the resurgence of the excessive bold text in this issue, especially since it seemed to have disappeared after the first issue. I know it sounds like such a little thing, but when your images tell more of the story than your words do, you need to be sure that those words are formatted in a way which doesn't mar the flow of the narrative. There were a few 'deus ex machina's in this issue"Powell falling for the 'villain monologues and allows prisoners to escape' trope, Sylvia falling for Jones' emotional 180, ***SPOILERS*** Nick effectively falling on his sword for the benefit of the group"which makes the book lose points for predictability, but the power behind the story still obtains.

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Feb 16, 2020

    A rollicking ride as two sides go to war to impose/defend their way of living. Fluid artwork coupled with didatic storytelling come together to produce an entertaining, compelling (if one sided) story of sex and freedom. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 12, 2020

    Now that the series crawls out of the Pleasure Center with new revelations, Horn and Hickman can start to move the series in a new direction that takes into account a larger perspective on the world of SFSX. Its been a strangely-paced journey into a dystopia thus far. A lot of the basic elements of the world have been rendered now. Itll be interesting to see where the story moves from here. Theres a potential danger in repetition as the fugitives continue to explore the edges of the dystopia. Still, Horn and Hickman seem to have a solid grasp of where theyre going with the story in an issue that has an excellent progression. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Feb 12, 2020

    SFSX #6 continues the dirty dystopia's struggle for freedom. The Dirty Mind team's plan isn't going as planned but it was obvious the Party wasn't going down without a fight. The big reveals of this issue were slightly expected, but the conclusion doesn't close the door on there being more surprises to come. Read Full Review

    While this issue had the makings of some huge emotional moments, things didn't deliver as intended. Read Full Review
