“Lemire is one of my favorite graphic novel writers of the moment, and Nguyen’s art is exceptional. This volume tells us more about the back story of TIM-21 and his human “brother” Andy, as well as examining the motives of the seemingly trustworthy TIM-22.” By Peter J. Orvetti
“Considering my love for science fiction movies and video games, I have seen many tropes throughout the years. I find our main character Tim to be endearing and you’re rooting for his safety and happiness the whole way through. I loved the introduction of the new characters which helped fix some of the Mass Effect like story I read during the first tradeback. I am very much looking forward to the rest of this story. Jeff is a phenomenal writer! The water color art really wins me over. As a fan of Battle Angel Alita, this reminds of that story in some ways.” By CrazyRouge
