The Comics Journal reviews Mickey Zacchilli’s “exceptionally unique” Space Academy 123.

Space Academy 123 is funny and easy to read. It is beautiful to look at and read. The characters are alive, and the story is exciting. The theme is deep. It doesn’t pretend to be high art, but it is a marvellous work of art. Without any pretension, it is accomplished in its form and contents. Most of all, it is funny, easy to digest, and enjoyable.” — Kim Jooha, The Comics Journal
