Ray Pilgrim and his daughter Toni are digging deeper into the activities of the sinister Wednesday Club...but just as they find the evidence that will reveal the faces behind the masks, their key informant disappears. The only way to find him is for Ray to break a twenty-year-old promise and take the drug that could trigger his psychic abilities--or drive him back into a state of psychotic delusion!

    I can not say enough good things about AfterShock Comics. Their roster of quality of books is impressive. With each book situated in what appears to be their own world, the avenues for prolonged storytelling may falter down the line. However, the publisher seems to be aware of this limitation with new series' scheduled for April to further their roster of books. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Andrew McGlinn Mar 16, 2016

    This is a strong second issue that does an amazing job of drawing you into the story by teasing out layers to the character's background. I have to confess to loving this type of story construction; I don't need instant satisfaction and I'm happy to sit in for the long haul. Judging by the quality of the first two issues I've little doubt Second Sight will be another successful title for Aftershock. Even if you do find the pace of this issue a little slow for you, I'm pretty sure two panels in the last five pages will have the most distracted of readers turn their head and take notice.

    Doom Rocket - Scott Southard Mar 17, 2016

    The book has it's moments of Palahniuk-esque extremism, but for the most part, it's not difficult to bypass. The moments of true heart outweigh the schlocky ultra-violence and hit a chord that's not unlike an Aronofsky film or something from Flannery O'Connor. And Hine's thematic use of narratively transplanting the reader into other people's thoughts is decidedly a tremendousexercise in empathy. Not only do we see the victims' pure fear, but we see the horror that has brought these killers to mayhem. I don't know if that'sgood or bad, but it's definitely not something you see on TV everyday. The power of the comic book medium keepsSecond Sightfrom stumbling on its own tropes. Read Full Review
