Headspace #2 came out Wednesday April 9 and some really nice and sharp things were written about it. Here’s a round up of the links for your perusal.
“Then suddenly half way through the book it takes a left turn. You can hear the tyres squeal yet you are still gripping on for fear of falling out. We get an explanation (of sorts). But in a book that deals so magnificently with deception and unreality you can’t be sure that this is in fact the truth. I won’t spoil this but it’s done deftly and with an almost fairy tale styling (looking behind the curtain at Oz the Great perhaps?)”
–Tony Ezmond has some lovely things to say over at his site Never Iron Anything
““Headspace” #2 is a briskly paced chapter that builds upon the strong foundation laid out by the debut. We now have a strong and determined protagonist with a clear goal; the only thing standing between him and redemption is his own physical intangibility and the demons of his past…. Should be a walk in the park.”
–Zac Thompson gives us 4/5 skulls at Bloody Disgusting
“I can’t remember when was the last time I read and looked at something equally weird and subconsciously disturbing.”
–Senor Editor has nothing but nice things to say over at Trash Mutant
“I really think thatHeadspace allowed for all of those allegories to intertwine with this scene.”
–Samantha Roehrig at Comic Bastards continues to love what we are doing with a 4/5 score
“Lindsay maintains the somewhat frenetic and erratic tone of the first issue in a positive way.”
–Jonathan Pilley gives our issue a great talk up over at Omnicomic
“While living puppets are definitely not your usual method of delivering exposition, this is probably the most successful scene in the issue. Eric Zawadzki’s work is impressive here, implying a puppet-like looseness to Max’s movements while putting forth a disturbing character. And Lindsay makes a perfect choice as to the marionette’s first line of dialogue, unsettling us right off the bat and giving us a clue as to one of Shane’s later revelations.”
–Michelle White gives us 8.0 over at Multiversity Comics
“It is a weird sort of sci-fi psycho-drama that will leave readers wondering, “What happens next?!””
–Forrest Helvie drops an 8 out of 10 on us over at Newsarama in the Best Shots
I have to thank everyone who dropped a review, or talked us up online, or had a serious sit down chat with friends, or emailed me about this issue. Hearing people say they liked it better than #1, or that this is where things really ramped up, made me proud. You put these things into the world, you’d hate to think you are quacking into the abyss and left waiting for an echo until the end of time and you turn to dust and blow away on the winds of the forgotten.
In short, you all rock hard, I am humbled, and #3 is right around the corner, and things only get better yet. I promise. Nay, I guarantee.
OH, and thanks to those who are rating the issue on ComiXology. That always makes me happy, too, because I am needy that way. So needy.
