Wall Street magnate Trevor Richmond has succeeded in finding a way to avoid going to prison for embezzling millions from investors.  He has a new life, a new name, a new face and a new past.  No one can ever come looking for him.  It's everything he could possibly have asked for.  Until he discovers that someone else has moved into the life he abandoned and thought would simply fade away.  Someone who lives in his house, his life, with his name, his lover, and worse still, his own face.  A total stranger has stolen everything he is, was, and hoped to be...and he's not about to let that theft go unanswered, no matter what it may cost him.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Feb 5, 2014

    I saw online that a lot of people enjoyed the first issue and I'm definitely right there with them. I was very cautious going into this series and now I can't get enough. I really do wish that they had finished the entire story and released it weekly to give it a TV feeling, but I'll take what I can get at this point. If you like the original show or even just great story telling then definitely check out this series from the beginning and do not miss this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Feb 5, 2014

    TWILIGHT ZONE #2 is an incredibly fun issue that takes the mystery and intrigue of the classic television series and throws a dash of action into the mix. JMS does a great job at keeping this second issue friendly to brand new readers. The art is ok, but the layouts are where Vilanova shines in this issue. Overall, this is a really fun read and Dynamite has something very special here that is a blast to read. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Feb 7, 2014

    Like the actual classic series, once you open the doorway to this tale you won't be able to get out. You'll have to see this nightmare of one man through. I'm ready for that trip! Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Jorge Solis Feb 6, 2014

    “The Twilight Zone” #2 captures the essence of what made the TV series so memorable. I look forward to more tale tales of light and shadow as the “The Twilight Zone” continues in the comic book page. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Feb 9, 2014

    JMS' Twilight Zone is off to an interesting start.  I had originally thought this would be a one-shot story but it's part of a larger arc.  Now that Trevor Richmond has found that his life has been taken over (and that someone else is living it better), he's having second thoughts about his change.  But is it too late?  I guess I have to tune in next month to find out.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Feb 5, 2014

    The Twilight Zone #2 is not bad but it does not capture the magic of the first issue. The recap is helpful so a new reader could jump on easily. Trevor's story raises some interesting questions about identity but the added action pages felt unnecessary. With okay art the book is not something spectacular. Fans of the original television series will find reasons to keep but for others they may need a bit more. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 8, 2014

    It's not as thought this is a bad issue, just an inconsistent and perhaps overwritten one, with the full story seemingly set to take place over a four issue span, something which (if it is the pattern for all TZ stories to follow) may not well serve the series in a quest for longevity. The Twilight Zone #2 is a mixed bag, with inconsistent art, and an interesting mystery being ill-served by the format & pacing, earning a middle-of-the-road 2.5 out of 5 stars overall. Often times, I'll commit myself to a six-issue run of a series to give it a chance to grow into its own conceit, but I'm not entirely sure this book will last more than twelve issues if every issue moves this ponderously… Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Feb 6, 2014

    This is the kind of character who would only appeal to the most egomaniacal and petty. If that's not you, then I don't recommend this comic. Read Full Review

    While I would definitely enjoy self-contained stories each month, the second issue of The Twilight Zone continues the strong story begun in issue 1, with enough new twists and turns to keep me coming back next month. A fun read overall, especially for fans of the original series.
