    To be honest there isn't a lot of information from the first issue that's required of you to be able to read this issue. There are two things that will certainly play into the overall story, but this issue does a decent job of standing on its own. Granted it's a much richer reading experience if you've read both issue. Once again if you like magic and Arthurian Legends then you definitely want to join in on this tale. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Jul 15, 2014

    Eye of Newt takes a step in the right direction with the subtle yet impactful switch to an Arthurian story being what this series needed. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Eye of Newt #2 is an okay issue that improves on some things from the first issue but never quite feels as engrossing as it should be. The artwork is still fantastic and indicative of a magical world seeking to grab the imagination yet a lack of the characters' back stories or interactions that showed depth limits the understanding of them being chosen for a mysterious reason to take part in this trial. However Eye of Newt #2 would seem to be an excellent read for a children's story with its abundance of characters and various events, and aside from that it still hasn't reached its full potential.

    We The Nerdy - Oscar Russell Jul 16, 2014

    The adventure itself is a good follow, and the inclusion of a flying frog does break up some of the monotony of some of the more simple walking and talking that Newt does. With this now being the half way point of the mini-series, things will surely have to pick up in the next issue so that we have a thrilling climax to this book. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - CeeJay Jul 16, 2014

    The real star here is still the art. It's almost like an ancient tapestry and it's the books biggest pull. Hague uses shadow to great effect and makes his world colorful without being cartoony. Anyone into ancient European mythology should really give this a try. The art is dark to offset the fantastical elements of the plot and it's filled with cool creatures and thing. Read Full Review
