    All in all, I still love seeing Aero when it comes around. In many ways, it's a testament to the Leifen-Pak partnership that I'm already so comfortable with Aero as a character that I want to see her interact with a larger universe. But as it stands, the pacing just feels a little odd this third issue. Read Full Review

    The issue has a few hiccups, but the highs definitely outweigh the lows. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 18, 2019

    Aero continues to look really, really good in her third issue. The lack of in-depth characterization in the main feature maintains a sense of mystery about Lei. But the background on the heroine and her daily life will be missed if things dont slow down for her in issues to come. The action has been great, but there needs to be more of a personal angle on the heroine to balance-out a closer walk with the new character. The international feel of the comic is amplified at issues end with the creators notes by Liefen and Keng that appear in both Chinese and English translation.  Read Full Review

    Aero 3 was a waste of my money, and probably yours too. The first main story was super shallow, and barely anything happened. We got to see Aero in her personal life a little more, which was cool, but the story didn’t progress at all. The second story progressed less than I thought too, but it had better art and solid action.

    Somebody oughtta tell Zhou Liefen that "withhold anything interesting from your story until the climax" is not how you build tension. But then, I've seen readers of the Chinese version suggest that Greg Pak should get a large share of the blame for the disappointing pace of this translation. Apparently, the original didn't put the contemporary story on hold for these jarring flashbacks.

    I'm hoping these two Atlas series aren't really ongoings because they always drag me down when I know I have to read them.
