    We The Nerdy - Derek A. Adams Jan 10, 2014

    My only complaint is a minor one: the art isn't so much bad as it is just not my preferred style, the shadowing and the character figures seem a little off sometimes, but for the most part I dig it. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Jan 10, 2014

    This series is really hitting its stride, managing a balance between tension onboard Clarke and politics back home and laying it all out with beautiful, eccentric art. First contact stories are notoriously hard to pull off, but here we're getting a believable, surprising and thoroughly compelling vision of what it could actually be like. Realistic science fiction doesn't get much better than this. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Mike Okeke Jan 8, 2014

    Issue #3 continues at a slow but steady pace, helping us identify with the cast and increasing the tension surrounding the unknown Chandelier. This may be a book which plays out better in trade form once a bigger picture is discovered but it is certainly a decent monthly book. It feels almost as if it were a well paced, methodical HBO style drama minus excessive nudity and endless unexpected deaths. However the final scenes do finally begin to flesh out a bigger universe within the world. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Josh Reifler Jan 7, 2014

    Issue 3 does enough to continue to build the overall story through the smaller plots weaved by Soule. President Blades, I feel, continues to carry and sell the story as the most interesting character in the book. For a story about a possible alien space weapon near earth and a government hiding it from its people, Soule does a great job making it more about the people and the little reveals and payoffs. The cliffhanger creates a new wrinkle in the book and the most exciting part is that it gets us no closer to knowing what the Chandelier is but has me just as excited. Soule is creating an environment where he can tell interesting stories under the banner of the larger story he introduced us to in issue 1. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jan 14, 2014

    The moving parts work fine, but at the moment are only capable of producing a rather simple tune for a premise of this scale. Read Full Review
