    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jan 30, 2013

    There is so much I want to say about this issue. I want to gush about how fantastic it is and with all my excitement talk about every amazing scene that happens in the story. It’s like watching an amazing TV show and then talking to a friend the next day about every aspect of it. That’s what I want to do, but I won’t spoil it for you. As I say with every issue of The Activity, anyone can begin the series with this issue or any issue. Sure the subplot won’t have as much impact for you as it does for someone like me, but you’ll still understand what’s happening and that some shit major shit is about to go down. This is a great series that more people should check out and share with their friends and this issue in particular is the best in the series thus far. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Max Delgado Aug 7, 2013

    My only criticism of The Activity is its tendency to ignore the human drama of the soldiers it so dutifully profiles. Yes, we get awesome action and in-depth insight into military strategy, but missing is the messy and heartbreaking humanity of people who kill people for a living. Again, consider Tara Chace, the complex heroine from Queen and Country as an example. It was Ruka's willingness to explore Tara's emotional fucked-up-ness that helped Q&C transcended the spy genre. And it's what made that title great. I'd love that for The Activity, too. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - William Tournas Jan 29, 2013

    I've never been much of a fan of military/modern warfare style comics, but I really enjoy this series and cannot speak highly enough about it. This was another great issue in a continually amazing run. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Schenker Feb 1, 2013

    This comic is amazing and while all of it might not be perfect for new readers, if it doesn't get people interested in previous issues, I'd be shocked. Pure awesome and one of my favorite comics this week. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - ToriBee Jan 30, 2013

    Maybe it’s this issue in particular due to their methods of problem solving, but that mix of unorthodox in an otherwise realistic and likely setting, creates an enticing atmosphere where the reader can’t help but keep turning the page. Read Full Review

    Overall, I think this was a solid read and would be enjoyable for anyone into military/cop/investigative stories that keep the reader guessing until the very end. Read Full Review
