    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

    SciFiPulse - Ian Cullen Aug 5, 2019

    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
