    An issue which shifts seamlessly between fevered imaginings and cold realities, never letting you decide which is dominant. Ruthlessly fascinating stuff. Read Full Review

    Ryan Kelly's art doesn't feel quite as sharp this issue. Nothing pops or looks especially great; it just kind of comes and goes. Add in some poor coloring choices that make some of the male characters look way too similar and you have an all together ho-hum package. Hopefully, things will pick up and Saucer Country will start to become the book that the first issue promised it to be. Read Full Review

    It's a shame, because there's a lot to like here: the characterisation is good, there's clearly a lot of thought placed in the plot, and Kelly's visuals are worth the cover price alone -- but it's all adding up to a book that just doesn't have the visceral punch it needs to make each issue feel satisfying. It's as though Cornell has paced the comic as he would pace a weekly TV series, and ultimately, that's too slow for monthly comics. Read Full Review
