    Heavy has quickly become one of my favourite books for 2020 and I find myself telling people to read this more than any other book right now. The story is original and graphic with a backbone of redemption and the perfect sprinkle of comedy. Read Full Review

    Heavy landed in a big way for me with the opening issue with its concept that left me wanting a lot more. This issue takes the surprise at the end of that and makes it the main focus here with Bill now partnered up with Slim and watching all the fallout from it. Normally I might cringe from a story twist like this but it works exceptionally well here and Bemis has a hell of a lot of fun with it in how Bill struggles with the whole idea. Donovan's artwork takes all the craziness to another level while still grounding it and making sure that there are enough perfect expressions coming from Bill to make you laugh at the best times. It's a strong book that's continuing on well here and has me hopeful that it can sustain it going forward while continuing to expand. Read Full Review

    Heavy #2 from Max Bemis & Eryk Donovan skillfully puts the reader in Bill's shoes as he's swept up in the charm of a psychopath. Read Full Review

    At its core, Heavy is an existential character study. It's fun and games on the surface, but it has some interesting questions about the nature of love and life itself. It never gets bogged down by any of this, though, and I'm not even sure if that's the point, but it is to me. This is a wholly unique and interesting world created by Bemis and co-creator Eryk Donovan, and I can't wait to spend more time with it. Read Full Review

    'Heavy' #2 manages to be a gnarly good time while still challenging readers with characters who aren't quite so simple as "good" or "evil." Read Full Review

    I maintain that a lot of the first issue of Heavy was very off putting in a 2010s Mark Millar kind of way, but its sophomore effort shows how the series is able to balance that with the actual narrative planned by writer Max Bemis. Read Full Review
