    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Dec 21, 2017

    The Family Trade at first seemed like it was going to be the simple story of our protagonist Jessa as she tries to navigate her way through this strange world. However, now that three issues have come out, you can start to tell that Jordan and Ryan are trying to craft something much more complex than that. The great thing about this series is the postscript that Jordan writes after issue where he explains some of his story related motivations, and in this issue, he touches upon something that isn’t screaming off the page, but that you could surmise is happening: the system that controls the Float, it isn’t perfect by any means and the fact that the Family fights to keep that system in balance doesn’t necessarily make them the good guys in this situation. This ambiguity is then at the heart of the series as we get to follow Jessa as she tries to navigate through all this craziness. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ben Snyder Dec 20, 2017

    The Family Trade #3 finally receives its best entry yet. While still not perfect, it finally feels as if the plot is in motion and the main character is worth following. I am interested in how far they take the political commentary as it is especially important in our current political climate. Also, it makes the book even more enjoyable to read. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Dec 22, 2017

    Overall, things have sped up, and this comic lives on the cusp of reaching the promise of its premise. Interested to see how Jessa's character arc evolves following betrayal, and how she gets herself out of another corner. She stays forever on the run, and hopefully her character arc can catch up soon so we care about her goals beyond survival. Read Full Review
