    The pace is fast, the action always around every corner and the art impeccable for this type of book. It's dark, it's interesting and it keeps even the dullest of scenes lively. Read Full Review

    Chilling at its core, “The Strain: The Fall” #2 keeps the story moving with such a fast drive. If you're a fan of the novel, you will be immensely pleased with how the artwork brings to life the book's prose. Read Full Review

    The vampire menace is spreading, but all of the blood suckers are not on the same page. New characters are introduced and the pacing is picked up in this new issue. Read Full Review

    The Strain #2 is not a good place to pick-up the book and it really isn't a great place for it to continue to either. The story is cluttered with too many focuses while never achieving forward momentum in any of those focuses. The recap at the beginning is too inconclusive and will leave new readers unsure of who different characters are and a lot of the chatter relating to last issue is just poor recap, to vague to be helpful if you don't know what happened and too basic to give you a deeper insight if you do know. The Strain‘s artwork ranges from passable to stylized with serious gaps in quality, overall I can't really recommend this one. Read Full Review
