    John Shirley, novelist and co-screenwriter of the original movie, writes an action-packed issue filled with violence and multiple kills. Though the art is rough and muddled at times, the dark tone suits the character and setting appropriately. I'm sure the body count will continue to rise in the next issue, but " more importantly " I'm interested in seeing where the story goes from here. Read Full Review

    I gave issue #1 a good 7/10. This issue is much the same. I have always liked The Crow as a character, but this story is struggling to pick up the pace in my opinion. The artwork is the standout for me so far, so it's another 7/10, with the hope that the next issue steps it up a little. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Aug 19, 2012

    With The Crow: Death & Rebirth #2, John Shirley delivers an okay story that struggles to embrace the loss of the principle characters. Kevin Colden's artwork still lends eerie atmosphere and a slight impressionistic quality. If the art was your favorite part of the first issue, you should enjoy this one well enough.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 16, 2012

    I'm just really unimpressed and disappointed by this series. I was looking forward to it and now I can't stand to read it. I wish I could say that it was due to over hype, but there is a difference between that and what this book is. Over hyping an average book still results in reading an average book, but when you overhype a bad book the results are like getting a kiss from an ugly man dressed as a woman" who the hell wants that?
