Ruben's attempt at a twelve-step recovery stalls before it begins, as an army of supervillains, led by his old nemesis Brutal Juice, assembles against him. But the alcohol-fueled superhero won't give up yet . . . and before this blood-soaked issue is through, one of them will recognize a HIGHER POWER.

    All of the writing in this book is absolutely stellar. From dialogue to narration to just bad guys monologuing, all of the speaking feels natural but keeps a defined Read Full Review

    Usually when I love the first issue of a series, the next part disappoints me. But Buzzkill #2 continues to impress. "Reuben" is my favorite new character of the year and the concept is brilliant. I cannot wait to read more and my fingers are crossed that Cates and Reznicek will not just stop at just this mini-series and will either turn it into an ongoing series or create a spin-off, which they have talked about doing. Until then, I'll enjoy this buzz killer. Read Full Review

    A somber, but powerful read. Buzzkill is one of the best titles Dark Horse is publishing. Read Full Review

    Shaw's line work is reminiscent of Tradd Moore (who will provide art for a new Ghost Rider book in March) and Sean Gordon Murphy. It's entirely suited to the narrative, as is Lauren Affe's colour palette. Buzzkill is my (current) drug of choice. Read Full Review

    Buzzkill is unlike anything else you are reading. Its intelligent, action packed, and offers a realistic look at addiction. By the end of the issue youll find yourself fighting off the shakes in anticipation of your next fix. Read Full Review

    Overall, Buzzkill to me came out of nowhere. I didn't know what to expect going into the series and have come out of it loving both issues so far. Read Full Review

    Not a letdown from the previous 10/10 first issue. Everything here is brilliantly handled and is my current favorite book on the market!

    The second issue shows that this isn't just a good concept, it is also well thought out with tasteful but relevant themes you would hope to see from a book like this. We get a chance to see "Ruben" at his lowest so that we can build from there, and I love the addition of Doctor Blaqk, he's a fun character to break up the heavy subject matter.
