    Pastrami Nation - Daniel Schwartz Jan 31, 2016

    With spot-on dialogue and an amazing art style (the solid dark lines and sharp colors are a personal favorite of mine), Symmetry #2 provides a visually stunning story that is entertaining and makes the reader think. Follow that with a daring cliff-hangar to end the issue and it appears that Image has published another winner. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Zina Hutton Jan 25, 2016

    I'm still enjoying Symmetry as a comic because it makes me think. It's a work of utopian science fiction, but there's also a philosophical and sociological slant to it, something that I find fascinating. What will the future bring Michael and Maricela? Who knows, but I'm excited to find out! Read Full Review

    Symmetry #2 moves the story along nicely, as following the catastrophic developments from the opening issue, we needed something with a lot of punch. The narrative also gets some much needed tension, and when you add in the dramatic revelations there is certainly enough elements to create a spectacular story. Read Full Review

    Matt Hawkins and Raffaele Ienco continue to engage readers in this second issue. As more details are revealed, the storyline becomes even more fascinating. Hawkins has created an expos of our society's flaws in an intriguing and creative way. It'll be interesting to see where the story goes as characters become more developed. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Kieran Fisher Jan 20, 2016

    There are some great ideas in Symmetry, and it's on course to becoming an enjoyable Utopian sci-fi fare. It flips the script in some ways to standout from other stories of a similar ilk, so if you're a fan of this genre I highly recommend it. If not, I doubt this will change your mind. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Asa Giannini Jan 20, 2016

    The stiff writing and unnatural art of Symmetry #2 work together to make one a comic entirely devoid of charisma and life. Each over-sincere narration box and clichd sci-fi plot point is perfectly tone-deaf creating what will likely be one of the worst comics of the year. Read Full Review
