Leo's having one of those days. He's been ditchedby his friends, mugged at knifepoint, and electrocuted. He has something to say about all this, but the only cat prepared to listen is his virtual reality marketing pal, Jerry. Ordinarily that wouldn't be a problem, but Jerry's mental health hasn't been too hot since his circuits got fried. But hey, what could go wrong?

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Oct 25, 2018

    Watching Vault Comics grow and come into their own in delivering a consistently high quality has been one of the best stories in the comic industry, for me, over the last year or so. With books like this, being created by writers, artists et al at the top of their game, Vault are creating high expectation levels, of which I am sure they can not only match, but surpass in time.

    Batman's Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Nov 14, 2018

    As I noted in my review of Friendo #1, the debut of this series was loaded with intriguing potential. Friendo #2 makes good on that promise, crafting a near-future horror story that casts extreme capitalism and human indifference as its villains. Its chilling stuff, laden with cautionary lessons for our times. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Nov 13, 2018

    Friendo continues to be a crazy comment on the excesses of a society where being plugged in to social media all the time has become epidemic. No need to worry. There is a virtual reality guardian who will protect you as long as you have money, and it doesn't matter where you got it, there is no such thing as ill-gotten gains. Read Full Review

    While the pacing of the book moves incredibly quickly compared to the last installment " and Jerry himself still feels like a bit of a wildcard " Friendo is a book that continues to live up to its intriguing premise. Read Full Review
