    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Sep 14, 2016

    Despite this being the second issue of the second mini series, the credit page states that this is actually issue 7 in a series. I am a big fan of this type of publishing, of which Dark Horse are particularly adept, as it allows for the readers tongue to be wet without overwhelming thewallet or allowing a book to outlast its welcome. This alsoimplies that Jones is plotting for the long haul with each mini series feeding into the next and togethermaking a whole. With such a simple strategy in place, this book shows that to say that Joelle Jones is at the top of her creativegame is an understatement. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Alyssa Jackson Sep 14, 2016

    This comic never fails to delight me. Every panel has something that catches your eye and stops you from racing through the issue, and her use of textures and playfulness with breaking panel walls mirrors Josie's desires to break out of her stifled 60's housewife role. I'm sure there will be an issue I'll rate less than 10 some day, but this is not it. Read Full Review

    If there were any doubts that Jones thoroughly deserved those Eisner nominations decorating her CV, this issue stabs those doubts in the neck and buries them in the swamp. Just absolute magic – we can only hope the series as a whole ends as strongly as its predecessor. Read Full Review

    Overall Im really enjoying having Josie Schuller back. I loved the first Lady Killer story arc so much and now it feels like its back to business, as things are once again starting to amp up in volume. In the past Josie has always relished in her job but as things are once again start to get serious, we see a new Josie emerge, as her personal life and work life begin to overlap. I cant wait for the next issue to come out where we can learn more about this mysterious organisation and see whether her new partnership is as sweet as it appears on the surface. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Lauren Gallo Sep 14, 2016

    Other than that, Lady Killer 2 remains very much in the same, darkly cheeky vein of the first series: different kills of the week set within a not-too-complicated overarching story. Again, the thing I love about this series is it's smart without requiring too much deep thinking, the art is great-looking, and the way it plays up mid-century norms to almost satirical levels is a thing of beauty.

    Definitely not a kids book by any means, but Lady Killer #2 from Joelle Jones is an absolute must-grab for comic readers looking for something different. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Pablo Arriaga Sep 14, 2016

    One of the things that felt missing in this issue was the gore. Joelle Jones' line work and crisp lines combined with spatter of blood and body parts is something that works very well together; it was what hooked me on those first pages in from issue one in the last series. Although there is some in this issue, I am eagerly awaiting for more blood, broken bones that stick out of the skin, and bruises that make Lady Killer dance in the line between a Mad Men with assassins and a cult horror film.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Sep 16, 2016

    “Lady Killer 2” is existing kind of quietly this time around and it's a shame. The series continues to be very good and one of the best looking books on shelves right now. Read Full Review

    GWW - Enrique Rea Sep 17, 2016

    Lady Killer continues to build on Josie's new life in Florida. A new alliance, a possible new affiliation, and certainly more kills to come. This issue was light on the blood and gore but some interesting new developments means the next issue can't come soon enough. Josie is finding her stride with a little help from Irving. ‘Lady Killer' is deliciously dark and beautiful. Read Full Review

    Joelle Jones has crafted an enthralling story about crime, murder, secrets, and societal interactions. This is a great series for any and all crime fiction fans, and is well worth the read. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Brandy Dykhuizen Sep 20, 2016

    Snuff spree or merely a tale of a woman making her way without letting a steady stream of male "helpers" cramp her style, Lady Killer 2 has me hooked. Read Full Review
