    The Resurrectionists #2 is an excellent issue that raises this series to one of my current favorites. The excellent writing by Fred Van Lente coupled withMaurizio Rosenzweig's artwork makes this another highly engrossing issue. The big revelations and the story progression left me on the edge of my seat and I can't wait for the next issue. Jericho Way has become a much more intriguing character with the introduction of Quinn and his growing understanding of the Resurrectionists. This series has it all: a love story over millennia, intrigue, action and great artwork. And with the plots revealed, the story just keeps getting better. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - John F. Trent Dec 24, 2014

    Resurrectionists #2 continues where the first one left off providing an intriguing tale of thievery intermixed with characters who have a very prolonged history with each other despite not fully comprehending the magnitude of their history yet. This second issue also adds a number of new layers to the story from the actual purpose of the Resurrectionists to pleas to the gods for vengeance. The issue did cut back on the descriptions of the treasure and there were some perceived minor hiccups with the writing. If you have not looked into this book yet, it is definitely recommended. It has an excellent blend of action, suspense, romance, and drama. Read Full Review

    From the world-building on the back of Egyptian mythology to the potential for the team expanding as we encounter other times, places and characters, this is a really solid start, and a great place (or should that be time?) to get into a great new comic. Read Full Review

    I wouldn't call this booka ‘must read' but it's getting more solid as it progresses. Resurrectionists is a seriesthat seems like it is still finding it's footing but has potential to turn into something memorableby the end. There's something promising in these pages and the concept of resurrection and picking up the pieces of your past life is too good toignore! Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - David Craig Dec 24, 2014

    In the end, Resurrectionists #2 undoubtedly has some flaws. The art isn't always strong, some of the characters are still a little weak, and the dialogue could use some tweaking here and there. However, I don't think you should give up on this series just yet. The overarching story that Fred Van Lente is telling shows a lot of promise, and the way that this issue ends has left me very much looking forward to the next chapter. If you enjoyed or were on the fence about the first issue of this series, you should pick up this second instalment and give it a go. In spite of its flaws, there's definitely still fun to be had from this series. Read Full Review
