    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 17, 2019

    The greater unity of Laroche's pacing begins to become a bit more apparent with this ninth issue. Conceived as a complete story, the overall plot structure is revealing itself. The Warning feels more like a unified project than a serialized piece of fiction. The brief, little tachistoscopic assault of 33 pages per month feels weirdly percussive. It'll be interesting to look back over it all once the final issue is out. For now, readers are only getting little snapshots from the hell of war on another world. It's fun, but it can be frustrating. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Jul 18, 2019

    The final scene in this issue is stunning. The colors from Simpson are just stupendous, and I've gone back to just look at this page and admire the level of work put into it. Based on that scene alone, I highly recommend you go pick up this issue right away. The Warning #9 is my favorite in the series so far and well deserving of the praise I have given it.

    I love how this series knows when to step on the gas when the story calls for it. Beautifully calculated chaos. My favorite panel was a throwaway shot of missiles launching from a battleship in the dark. I don't know why. It was a quick cut but it just looked so real.

    I'm not doing a very good job at explaining why I love this series.

    Maybe I can't. Maybe it's just a visceral gut reaction. Just poking at the exact spot in my brain with the correct puzzle piece.

    Art, man.
