    All-Comic - Tyler Goulet May 21, 2014

    After just two issues, it's more than safe to say that BOOM! Studios has a winner here. The first issue had a hell of a hook, and now this group of creators just has to keep reeling us in. If the next few issues are anywhere near the quality and skill that was between these covers, then there shouldn't be a problem. If you want something different, but with a hint of familiarity, look no further than Translucid. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Alex Smith May 20, 2014

    Sanchez and Echert continue their slow-burn, questions-over-answers narrative, but it's completely beneficial to the world ofTranslucid. We need more stories like this one. Anyone interested in probing the depths of the superhero (or supervillain)process would be wise to check this book out. Deep and introspective, it has the possibility of turning the comics world on its head. Hopefully the series continues down this pathas pieces of the master plan are revealed and the machinations behind The Horse come to light. Whether you wait for the collection or not,Translucidis a must-read. Highest recommendation. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Ani Gonzalez May 24, 2014

    I found it a little confusing at parts, and had to read some things twice to at get a clearer sense of what is going on and where. But is an interesting series, and I will keep reading. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson May 28, 2014

    Sanchez and Echert drop some hazy and elusive clues that show there is some connection between these two realities, but whether one is a dream, hoax, or an imaginary story remains unclear. Nonetheless, it's enough to keep interest high; between the characterization, the questioning of superhero archetypes, and strange and almost surreal connection between two very different worlds, "Translucid" #2 is a remarkably gripping issue, even for those who might have missed #1.

    Comic Bastards - Nick Philpott May 21, 2014

    Overall, I don't have much to report from this issue. Some of the dialogue felt a little stilted, but the story was well-told. The art was top notch. In this game of monthly installments, though, you need to leave the reader with the one big plot point that they can remember next month ("Last month, Bane blew up Arkham Asylum and now he and Batman are in a cat-and-mouse game" turns into "Last month, Bane broke Batman's back.") There's gotta be a hook to hang the reader on to bring them back. I'm not sure this month's issue has it, but like I said, the first issue's hook was strong enough for two, at least.
