    I first read issue one of this series because it said fiction and I thought, “Awesome, a comic book about literature,” like an idiot. But now, I’m a fan for the adventure. I guarantee you will be, too, if you pick this book up and give it a read. Enjoy! Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Jul 16, 2015

    The biggest downside to The Fiction #2 is that the issue ends. Just as the story turns a corner, unveiling a few pieces of immensely intriguing information consecutively, the second chapter comes to an end. The creative team has done a fantastic job over the first two issues to set up a universe and a conflict that manage to be enthralling and rather original. It will be exciting to see what lies ahead.

    Villain Smash - Eric Switzer Jul 15, 2015

    The fiction is right on the verge of being remarkable. At this point it may flop just as likely as it is to astound. With Pires my money is on the latter, but this is the kind of book that is going to have to really blow me over with the reveal because the build up and suspense has been the driving force for two issues, and when you only have four to tell your story, its a risky strategy.

    Infinite Comix - Scott Morse Jul 17, 2015

    The Fiction #2 begins and ends with a question that is equal parts ironic (considering the title of the book) and existential: "What is reality?" This question, though not answered here, is a great bookend for what was an otherwise muddy outing for series writer Curt Pires. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Andrew McGlinn Jul 14, 2015

    Fiction issue two builds on the strong foundation started in issue one with a clever and it seems fairly nuanced story that is seamlessly carried by the wonderful art and lettering in the comic. As a whole, it really is something to appreciate over time, but I cant help but feel the story hasnt quite managed to hit that home run for me anyway. Ill still be reviewing part three when it comes out though, so I do have to admit I'm hooked. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Jul 15, 2015

    Without knowing much about where this plot is headed, you get the sense that there is a disconnect between these once children and the adults of their former town. Otherwise, the purpose the flashbacks seem useless in a way. Or maybe it has to do with this whole kids are innocent but really they're not. We all have secrets. And I am willing to read on to see what that secret is. The town is holding something back and the group is holding something back. The new world isn't the only mysteriously creepy thing about this comic. Read Full Review

    This was the only other comic I could finish from my dropbox and that's about all I can say for it. Read Full Review
