    There is a reason Skyward has been purchased to make into a major motion picture. Joe Henderson has a brilliant mind, an evil mind, a punch right into the emotions, but a brilliant mind nonetheless. Lee Garbett and Antnio Fabela are still killing it with amazing splash pages and making a beautiful world of Henderson's mind come to life. With a small cover tease for what is to come next month for Willow, Garbett and Fabela are sure to have fun with whatever crazy world Skyward has in store for us. Read Full Review

    I can't express in enough words just how enjoyable Skyward is, and why you should pick it up. It's an untapped concept for a world that Henderson is seeing to its fullest potential, and every issue reveals another aspect of how it works. You can tell that Henderson is having fun just building it for the reader piece by piece. Read Full Review

    The art alone is worth it, but the original premise and compelling lead are icing on the cake. I hope the team can continue delivering some good books beyond this initial arc. I can only wonder how a TV show or movie adaptation would look. Read Full Review

    What a great first five issues, wonderful art, great story, a light easy read, but one with significant depth. Buy it, revel in it and keep it on the shelf. This is a book you'll return to again to give you a hit of sunshine when you need it. Just like my Stevie Wonder records.  Read Full Review
