    Clown Fatale #2 builds off the developments in the first issue and delivers in more ways than expected. The story is well-paced and once the action gets going it's as thrilling as the crew's descent (or ascent)?) into the world of contract killing is fast. In the midst of that there is enough character development to give some depth to certain members of the crew to make it plausible how they not only ended up in the circus but how they could end up in the world of contract killing. And with a startling development I'm very interested in seeing what happens next. I wasn't sure what to expect when I decided to give this series a try but I'm glad I got on this ride because it's been a fun one and even if I don't know where it'll end up I have hope that it'll be satisfying at the end.

    If you had told me a week ago I'd be praising Clown Fatale #2 for its deeper character exploration, enjoyable action, and embodying ideals of third-wave feminism, I'd have called you crazy, but here we are. The issue helps flesh out the characters and affords them real personality, albeit ones that could've used a little more development. It also has enjoyable action and some pretty solid artwork, though occasionally characters will have to be scrunched into panels. I have never before seen a comic take such a positive increase in its second issue ,and it's quite possible we won't see this kind of thing again for a long while, so, yeah, consider Clown Fatale #2" highly recommended.

    Clown Fatale #2 is an excellent continuation that pushes this devilish concept even further. Recommended. Read Full Review

    With Victor Gischler's story, it just reminded me of the old school grind house movies that I've seen a million times. A batch of troubled girls, all with unhappy pasts, forced to do anything it takes to survive in a savage world. But when they're pushed too far they push back with explosive results! This is something that I'm okay with. Hell, done right it can even be fun (The fight with the Siberian Death Squad in the tent for example) because I know that the girls with get the vengeance and the bad guys will get their comeuppance. Did Gischler reinvent the wheel? No, but he did but he did put clown make-up on it. Read Full Review
