    You may find it hard to connect with any character except Jessa, which will likely change as a new addition, Ri, comes into her own. This series has all the same upsides as before so we can hope it accelerates again on its way there and narrows its relationship focus on the way. This is a family, right? So who is it Jessa must rely on? Who counts on Jessa in return, believes in her, trusts her? As the family takes shape, hope to find those answers soon. Read Full Review

    Beem’s painted art continues to impress in this second issue and I would recommend this series on Beem’s art alone.The red cheeks that Beem seems to give to everyone can be a little distracting, but otherwise, each page is beautifully painted and helps sell the story as it unfolds.

    While the art is beautiful, if you go into "The Family Trade" expecting anything other than a light bit of intrigue and adventure, you're bound to be a bit disappointed. Read Full Review

    I fear that this review may come off as overly gripey, but thats only because I had (and still have) very high hopes for the series. The imaginative setting is rife for an equally riveting story. In the hands of a different creative team, I may have given up on The Family Trade already. But the optimist in me maintains hope that Jordan, Ryan, and Beem can bring these characters to life in a way that compels me to keep reading. 3.25 / 5 Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ben Snyder Nov 15, 2017

    At first, I really enjoyed the world of the float that the first issue of The Family Trade introduced. I thought the concept of a shadow family on the side of good that kept the politics in check could really stick out as unique in this ever growing and expanding catalogue of Image series. However, The Family Trade #2 fails to instill as much hope for this series going forward. Read Full Review
