    I loved the art as usual (I mean just look at that cover!), and the coloring is incredible as well. I can't say what parts I enjoyed the most art-wise because that would give a ton away. I can say I love how the characters express emotion throughout these books thanks to the art. At this point I've become so engrossed in the series that I can see a blank panel with just Lucas's expression and almost come up with my own dialogue for what he's thinking. By being able to get inside these characters' heads helps to relate to them or in Lucas's case at least try to understand what's going on inside his head. I come back month after month to this great creative team and have yet to be let down. This is easily my favorite issue of the series next to the first one, and I can't wait for the next installment.

    Once again we get another great issue of Sheltered. If you haven't got into this series yet I highly recommend getting the first arc once a collected edition, which is already out right now, and picking up this issue as well. I'm giving Sheltered #6 a 4.7/5 Read Full Review

    Sheltered #6 takes the series in a new and unexpected direction, which will hopefully bring in great results as the story progresses. As always with “Sheltered”, I can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Jan 10, 2014

    All of this said, this first issue of the new arc is everything we've come to expect from “Sheltered”, plus a little bit more. Brisson and Christmas have a slightly broader palette to work with in terms of themes and emotions by the end, and things are all the more horrific for it. It's a great moment to jump on this series, as well an interesting side-trip for invested readers, and the fact that this issue manages to be both without getting too exposition-heavy is pretty damn impressive.

    A good issue… I'm just not sure it was a good Sheltered issue. Let's see how the story develops. Read Full Review

    Have you been reading SHELTERED? Ed Brisson and Johnnie Christmas are delivering the goods with this series. We have the beginning of a new arc and things are about to take a huge turn. If you haven't read the first five issues, do yourself a huge favor and pick up the trade. This is a different sort of 'survival' story and there are so many different ways it could go.

    Last month I hoped that Brisson and company would let us in on the secret and they have to some degree. The obvious question that emerges from this reveal is how Lucas will explain, exploit or bury the event. Even more interesting is the question of whether or not he can maintain control of his compatriots. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Mark Pritchard Jan 8, 2014

    Leaving the global freezing debate aside, this issue of Sheltered is ups and downs. It begins on a down, but the tension quickly rises and it ends on a huge up. The artwork whilst not of the highest quality is perfectly suited for the story. That story is progressing nicely and because of the events that take place at the close of this book, is well worth following for a few more issues yet. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Jan 13, 2014

    The series had been coming along okay, but "Sheltered" #6 gives it a shot in the arm that ratchets up the excitement a little bit. It's not quite so insular now and is all the better because of it. Read Full Review
