Day two on board the SOUTHERN CROSS’s five-day voyage to Titan, and the mysteries are already piling up. Like where has BRAITH’s cabin-mate disappeared to? Just how many people have died on board the ship? And how many of those spirits are still haunting the dark corners of the SOUTHERN CROSS? The plot thickens as BRAITH starts making connections, leading her through doors that should have been kept shut.

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Apr 8, 2015

    Though we are just in the first half of the year, I must say that Southern Cross has made a profound impact on me thus far. The creepy factor is off the charts and I can't remember feeling so paranoid while reading something like I have in reading this series. Like the Southern Cross ship itself, this story is pressing forward at a heavy and dark warp speed that has me anxious to see where we go from here. The only thing that I feel for certain is that things will be getting more intense for Ms. Alex and likewise for the reader too. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Apr 15, 2015

    Southern Cross is the kind of horror that sneaks up on you.  It bides its time, waiting for the right moment to strike.  This isn't some cheesy jump scare.  The soundtrack isn't going to spike as a killer leaps from the bushes.  Instead it's going to reach right into your chest and pull out your heart and it's going to do it all in space.  Even if you could get away, where are you going to go?

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Apr 11, 2015

    I am hoping that Cloonan and Belangers varied first two issues of Southern Cross are an intentional maneuver to establish the story and characters as well as make the world seem unlike it really is. It could be true that the creators are still trying to figure out what the series is, but I'm going to be optimistic for now, that Cloonan and Belanger have a plan and Southern Cross #2 is an important step on trajectory.

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Apr 8, 2015

    Southern Cross continues to be a rather average series, as though there's a lot that intrigues about this series, it doesn't quite reach it's full potential. The lack of atmosphere also makes it hard to immerse yourself into this story, and though the mystery is captivating, it's not quite enough to override this. It's this that makes it hard to recommend this comic, as though I'd love to say give this series a try, I can't quite bring myself to recommend this comic to anyone who missed out on #1.

    "Southern Cross" had a great concept, but it's not delivering yet. Cloonan and Belanger need to work more on the foundation of the story so that they can build on it. Read Full Review
