    I'm digging Space Bandits so far and if Millar makes this a Netflix series I would absolutely binge the heck out of this one. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Aug 6, 2019

    The creative team behind Space Bandits is perfection. The series shows an understanding of cyberpunk aesthetics and science fiction tropes in a way that empowers the narrative. And let's be honest, Thena and Cody are just badass. If you haven't picked it up yet, Space Bandits #2 is a must-read for science fiction fans. Read Full Review

    OverallThis second issue continues the story that was so wonderfully set up in the first issue. Mark Millar provides a hatful of fun dialogue and some of the exchanges between the main two character are already sounding very much like banter. I loved how he has Cody take Thena through her plan and the various stages of it. It felt a little like Oceans 11 meets Prison Break and Star Wars. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Aug 7, 2019

    Space Bandits continues to please as the two criminals figure out what to do first, or rather who to do in. They plot moves quickly, the action abundant, and the inherent absurdity well represented. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - David DeCorte Aug 5, 2019

    SPACE BANDITS #2 takes many of the elements that worked in the first book and expands upon them. The book relies on the tropes of prison drama stories, without leaning on them. It's a great next chapter in this ongoing story. Read Full Review

    Space Bandits feels more like a television adaption than a modern comic. I mean that in a good way. The story would work in either medium but I think would easily translate to the big or small screen if given the chance. Thena and Cody are characters you'd love to have a beer with even though they are both noted as being extremely dangerous.

    This issue dials back the 80's motif and focuses on fleshing out our two leads and the dynamic they will have with one another. Cody is the brains and Thena is the brawn. The relationship is set here and it works beautifully. It's also great to see that the women don't instantly gel and become besties. This is common in most modern comics when two women are paired together. My favorite scen more

    Undoubtedly one of the best comics on the shelves right now. Fun, fast-paced and high-octane story with art that takes it up a notch. You wouldn't want to miss the prison break of the century.

    This was... a pretty dumb issue. That being said, I'll probably stick with it for a couple more issue or until the end of it's a mini-series.

    High reviews got me to read the 2nd one. More of the same from the first issue. Not my kind of book, but can totally see why some would enjoy it. I hope those who continue to get this enjoy the ride.

    Eh. Pretty boring revenge story with amoral characters. The art was good though.
