    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Gabriel Hernandez Jun 30, 2020

    ROGUE PLANET #2 is an effective horror chapter in the spirit of John Carpenter and David Cronenberg. The writing is atmospheric, and the art is mind-bendingly gross. Get your sci-fi horror fix with this issue. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jan 1, 1970

    Rogue Planet #2 adds a bit more to this series. It builds upon the first issue and ratchets up the horror vibe even more. Cullen Bunn does a great job of keeping the story focused and not straying far from the sci-fi/horror elements. The art is wonderful, as well. The art team does an awesome job of building that nice fearful/dreadful tone for the series. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jun 7, 2020

But while the world itself feels rich, several parts of this book seemed to harm the momentum of the story. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Jun 24, 2020

    A little too much story is getting thrown in and it ends up overwhelming the reader and detracting from the overall enjoyment. Whether the storylines will converge or stay separate remains to be seen, but it might have worked better as two separate comics, not one combined one. The horror elements and tension are still there, and being an amalgamation of dozens of sci-fi horror tropes is still working well, but it isn’t quite living up to the promise of the first issue.
