    This issue furthers the story but still has enough action to keep it feeling fast paced. Hitch's art remains spectacular and Ross has a great story so far. I really loved the first issue and this one adds more to the story so I give it a solid score of 4.5/5 Read Full Review

    It may not have been as good as the first issue, but it's still darn awesome. America's Got Powers delivers a fantastic story in a cool new world. This book is bigger than the reality show and this issue takes a step away from that. What stands out most is Bryan Hitch's fantastic art. I love all the detail he puts into each panel, including all the random objects in the background. That's dedication. Read Full Review

    Overall, I enjoyed the book and I'm ready to continue reading this mini to its entirety just to see what turns it will take throughout the mini. The issue has good character development, a very interesting plot is brewing and the art is just killer in this book as it always is with a Bryan Hitch book. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Jun 2, 2012

    Another fine looking issue from Jonathan Ross & Bryan Hitch (The Authority). Hitch’s illustrations come to life with the simplest of details like blood splatter, pieces of debris & explosions. His attention to detail is astonishing and I love the way he uses two page layouts with a couple of panels sketched into the corner pages. A great issue for a great title. See you in thirty! From Image Comics. Read Full Review

    I can't wait to see what Ross has in store for the series as it captivates your attention in a way that makes you want to throw your money down. While the art is pretty decent, the interesting plot is what makes this series tick. I would highly recommend to pick up issue one if you haven't read it yet. Read Full Review

    With several plot threads running simultaneously, America's Got Powers has set an ambitious course for its limited run. We'll see whether Tommy is up to the task of holding our interest for the rest of the journey. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 4, 2012

    A great many things are revealed in this issue, and it works both as a single issue and as a chapter in the ongoing narrative, while still maintaining some secrets for the 2nd and 3rd acts. The creators don't rage against the indignities of reality television, but they pointedly use all the criticisms of that medium to underline the brutal and dehumanizing conditions of our strange/familiar world. America's Got Powers #2 goes down smooth, playing with tropes but playing fair, and delivering a good reading experience, for 3.5 out of 5 stars overall. There are sci-fi, comics and young adult fiction bits floating around, but it's makes for an interesting goulash at the end... Read Full Review
