    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 11, 2020

    The large plot structure that Horn is working with looks to be leading in some exciting directions in future arcs of SFSX. The opening seven-issue arc seems to have been about establishing the world and the people in it. The single most prominent character in the series is the dystopia itself, which continues to lumber over everything throughout the seventh issue. As it is so very, very central to the plot, the total eradication of that dystopia would have hampered the series moving forward. Horn and Hickman have so much more to explore in this darkness, but the end of the seventh issue might have been more heartening if it had shown a little bit more hope for the heroes.  Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Elizabeth Fazzio Mar 16, 2020

    SFSX #7 ends on an exceptionally bittersweet note. There's a great deal of emotion throughout the issue which is beautifully rendered throughout by Jen Hickman. This issue is as story-heavy as issue #6 was action-packed, and through that means heavier dialogue and exposition, it is still a captivating read with an ending that doubles as a perfect segue into the next arc. The crew from The Dirty Mind get out of one jam, but one of them falls immediately into another, and since The Dirty Mind is family, you know that it will only be so long until they take another poke at the establishment to try to regain what they've lost.

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Mar 10, 2020

    SFSX #7 brings about a distinct feeling of change. By the end, it feels like a page has turned and a new chapter is set to begin. Things move fast in this issue, but that also means plenty happens. The Party is still an interesting entity that you want to see be torn down and the Dirty Mind crew are just the folks you want to see do it. I’m not sure what’s in store, but this dystopian world feels just as ready for change as when the book first began. Read Full Review
