    Onyx #2 provides a cohesive and enthralling story that presents a wide range of characters that all have a unique appeal. Even the mysterious leader that pops up throughout feels different to other evil antagonists and its a refreshing thing to see. I absolutely love this series; IDW has been on the money this year, especially with their science fiction and I hope that the series continues to bring this energy and excitement to the upcoming issues.

    A tonal shift from the first issue but sci fi fans should still find a lot to enjoy here. Read Full Review

    At one point, Abigail admits "I am so out of my element here" and to be honest, I've got to agree. This space-age splicing of The Island of Dr Moreau is so detailed and so complex, with overlapping intertextuality and referencing, that I felt as lost as the IDCJ. What is here is enough to tell me that fans of this genre will absolutely adore Onyx " it is solid, beautiful, ghastly and with quality story-telling but I am just out of my element.

    Comic Bastards - David Craig Sep 9, 2015

    In the end, Onyx is still far from perfect but this issue is a real improvement on the first. The story feels like its forging its own identity, and the artwork continues to impress. While the dialogue still isn't quite spot on, and the characters could use some more fleshing out, I'm optimistic that this book is on the up and up and may well wrap-up on a high note in a few months time. Onyx still isn't a must-buy, but it is one to watch; if it successfully manages to right itself in the next two issues, it could well be worth a purchase in trade paperback. Read Full Review

    I enjoy looking at Onyx. That's about it. Perhaps issue 3 will be better? Issue 2 certainly isn't. Read Full Review
