Free of their captor, the lovers explore their freedom, their love, and the monstrous new transformations of which they are capable. But when their thirst for revenge deepens, a sleek, vicious new predator creeps into London, threatening to destroy all they hold dear.

This new monthly series is the brainchild of writer Marguerite Bennett (A-Force, Angela, Red Sonja) and artist Ariela Kristantina (Wolverines, Deep State).

    Aftershock are putting together an impressive line-up for the start of their comic building empire. By allowing creative freedom,they have attracted writers such as Bennett and in turn this gives her space to excel and tell the stories that she wants to tell. Critics will no doubt mention that “sex sells” and to a point I can understand that viewpoint. But as mentioned in the previous issues review, the relationship in this story is as real as any relationship in any other book, the sex element being in part, is just a by-product. However, with the fantastic script,glorious artwork and sumptuous colors, there is hardly anything about this book I dislike. Read Full Review

    Insexts grabbed me firmly with the first installment and this one has me really wishing there were already half a dozen issues out so I could soak up more of it. While I enjoy a lot of works from a range of creators when they work in the mainstream superhero side, I'm always more interested when they get to bring their own ideas, unencumbered by the dictates of the corporate side, and just run with it. Marguerite Bennett has been doing some great work yet there's a kind of passion here that just takes it to a whole other level. And that's made even more so because of Kristantina's beautiful and haunting artwork. I can't get enough of it and just skim through and look at various panels to take in all the details separate from the story itself. It's a fantastic looking book with a story that demands you come back for more. I can't get enough. Read Full Review

    InSEXts is what it is. Love it, or hate it I dont think there is any question that you cant appreciate this is a well-executed and superb title. The story so far and the promise of what is to come will grip you like a fly in aweb (see what I did there), and I cannot praise the art highly enough: I really have become a huge fan of Ariela Kristantinas work. However, there is a lot of sex going on, and that might not sit well with some people, and personally Im not a huge fan of the florid period dialogue. Im also quite selective about horror in general, so its a testament to the strength of Marguerite Bennetts writing that I have InSEXts on my pull list. Read Full Review
