    Wacky, fun art and a slowly unfolding, yet very dramatic narrative make Motherlands #2 a fun read. Read Full Review

    A second issue that's just as strong as the first, thanks to the incredible depth of humanity and humor in its leads. Read Full Review

    The art style is a little retro and throwback, but it works. I can tell just by the look of it that Tab's armor is older and out of date"and now has a giant hole in the front of it. I love the way tracking is shown in the series, such as how Sylph's eye works. That was pretty interesting, and I wouldn't mind seeing more of that. Read Full Review

    This book is still a solid and often darkly hilarious read but the varying parts don't quite match up. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - John Schaidler Mar 1, 2018

    Final Verdict: 6.8 – The script of "Motherlands" #2 fully embraces its foulmouthed, wisecracking, high concept sci-fi aesthetic, but the artwork feels uninspired and decidedly less imaginative. For now, the words can carry the load. Hopefully the artwork will soon follow suit. Read Full Review

    After a disappointing first issue, I still had high hopes for the series moving forward. But after giving it another shot, I'm still not buying into the story, the characters, or the art. I still think there is a lot of potential for a great series here but up to this point it has been a let down. While I'm not quite ready to write the book off entirely, it needs to improve in a lot of areas for me to consider it a win for Vertigo. Read Full Review
