    Lucas provides aid to all the individuals who want to get off the train by flying them to the farm that he runs, transporting everyone by giant butterflies. I feel like Joe Henderson may have been motivated by Avatar in some way. Just when I thought dragonflies where the biggest thing Willa and Edison had to worry about, they get attacked by mosquitoes. Giant man eating, blood sucking, mosquitoes. A visually horrifying death in this issue makes me want to carry OFF! spray everywhere I go from now on. By the end of the issue I'm convinced that Willa has the worst luck in the world, but I know it's all for progression of the story and I'm always down for the ride. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, this is a strong issue and a good reminder of all the possibilities for the series going forward. Now is as good a time as any for new readers to catch up and follow along with Willa's adventures. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Oct 17, 2018

    I really like how Henderson is opening up this book. With the first arc, we focused on Willa playing around in the world she knew, now we see her facing dangerous and unknown obstacles. Henderson is really playing around with his imagination. More than anything, Skyward continues to prove that there are no limits the wonders its world can offer. Read Full Review

    Batman's Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Oct 17, 2018

    Another great issue in what has been one of the most solid and surprising new titles in years. Skyward #7, like the six issues that came before it, is impeccably structured and paced, accomplishing some of the best world-building in comics without sacrificing any tone or suspense.

    What a intelligent & beautiful book. Nothing his easy on skyward. We see Willa try to survive by her own before spending all resource she had. And then the mysterious farmers came one. And they seems nice but two things suggest they aren't.
    I also like how Emerson try to help but was shut off by the other passengers, then how they are ready to spend him (Humans ! Right ?)
    Henderson & Gabett add new insects to the bestiary : Giants Butterfly & Mosquito. Love that.
    Once again I would kill to play a RPG in this univers.

    Cover - Beautiful & related. Well done. 2/2
    Writing - Seriously I love reading it. 3/3
    Arts - And the layout & panel are beautiful. What do you want from more ? 3/3
    Feeling - Just perfec more
