    Milligan keeps things moving here pretty well and Kowalski makes for some really good engagement with the reader through his layouts and overall design, making you both intrigued and feeling revulsion at the same time in some cases. The book is certainly on a dark path, but it's all right there in the title as well so it's not a surprise. Definitely a read that leaves me wanting to know a lot more of what's to come for Rory.

    Terminal Hero is a great thinking comic, and issue two continues the external and internal battle Rory has with those around him and his emotions and new abilities. Some readers may hate him, some may feel sorry for him, and some may hope he answers for what hes done so far. This is a recommended comic. Grab that first issue and jump on board. Read Full Review

    Terminal Hero starts to make improvements, as though it's a long way from being a must read, this issue certainly does enough to merit a recommendation. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Sep 10, 2014

    In the second issue, Milligan includes a number of plot points that feel as though readers are crashing through the story. In one issue, Milligan moves through a number of phases that Rory faces with his powers and how they are applied. Readers experience some pieces of complications that arise with the powers and are introduced to what feels as though it could be a major aspect of story. Instead, it is resolved in a matter of pages. Before the end, an new direction is established. Milligan certainly has a number of good ideas, but the speed at which the book moves makes them hard to really appreciate. Readers are likely to be interested to see how the ending of Terminal Hero #2 will play out. Hopefully, though, Milligan takes a bit more time with his ideas. Read Full Review

    Sometimes, it is the state of affairs that is more interesting than the players involved. Read Full Review

    Terminal Hero #2 is an issue that feels like it is setting the table for something that could be interesting going forward, but it cuts so many corners along the way that the story suffers. This issue fails to hit home on any level below the surface and, at this point, there is next to know reason to connect to the main character at all. This issue (and series) needs a huge injection of character building and emotion, and probably a slower pace, to really become something that is memorable. Read Full Review
