It's time for Jeff Steinberg to knuckle down and learn how to be Champion of Earth-except his head's not really in the game. Sure, his new Voltron-style mech suit is pretty sweet, and he gets his own alien badass trainer to teach him the ropes, and he's in outer space! But he's still hung up on his responsibilities-and girlfriend, Shelley-back on Earth. But hold up, now that all of Earth has seen their "great" Champion (and his not-so-impressive, uh, assets), are they even happy to welcome Jeff back?

    One could argue that retreading old ground was a necessary evil for JS:CoE to officially move forward. I wont be making that argument, but Ill acknowledge that it exists. Regardless, this issue is still pretty funny and with it out of the way, well hopefully be diving into some very crazy, very uncharted territory next month. Read Full Review

    Jeff Steinberg is one of those legitimately funny and subtly poignant comics that are an Oni Press specialty. With this second installment, JS has settled down a bit from the expositional scavenger hunt that was the pilot issue; now that weve gotten setting out of the way, we can get into the gist of the story. Its significantly pared down, but still well-handled. A climactic mob sequence is hilarious. You actually end up loving the man-child ex-fratboy loser that is our protagonist; beneath this slacker-fantasy tale runs the terrifying question: If nobody believes in me, am I worth anything?

    Another great mix of humor with a cast of great characters. Jeff Steinberg is not for everybody but I think this title might be the most perfect comic for me. Steinberg spends most of his time on Earth in this issue and it'll be interesting to see where this book will go. I have a lot of fun with it.
