    Like I mentioned earlier, I'm completely sold on The Red Wing. This issue solidified that. If you haven't looked into this series yet, I recommend you do so. It's quite the wild ride. Read Full Review

    Danny: Exactly -- in addition to being a fairly common trope (The botched training simulation! "You think this is a game, son?!") we learn along with these characters what kind of weapons the time pilots are working with. Read Full Review

    I'm noticing an awful lot of white space in this book " from the covers to the title page to many, many of the actual story pages, there's way more empty white than I'm used to seeing in a comic book. Looking back, it seems that issue one was that way as well, and I find myself wondering just what that's all about. Is it simply a design choice, or is it something that has story resonance? I'm curious, I'm engaged, and I'm looking forward to issue three. Read Full Review

    The second issue of "The Red Wing" is a good follow-up to the first, grounding the story in the characters a bit more, and ending with a fantastic revelation. The final three pages make for one of those cliffhangers that dare you not to pick up the next issue. And, like most Hickman books, it's hard to tell where this is going or what the final scope will be. Right now, it's just a fun ride. Read Full Review

    Half way done with the series and we begin to understand what the war is about. Perhaps learning the character's motivations will help me to feel more of a connection to them but at this point my lasting memory of this story is the concept and the artwork. I don't think fans of Hickman are going to be disappointed at all but I am not sure this book is going to be for everyone. Read Full Review

    I was really looking forward to this series and am a little disappointed so far. Based on Hickman's track record of having written some incredible stories, I still have faith, but if an unknown writer had created these first two issues I would drop the series. And the art is holding things back due to my personal preferences, but if you are a huge Darrow of Bodenheim fan you might really dig it and thereby enjoy the entire series more than I am.
