    If Top Cow has been on your radar but you've been putting off looking at what they have to offer, this event is an excellent way to dip your toe in. If Top Cow isn't on your radar, this event should put it there. Either way, this is worth the cover price. Read Full Review

    I couldn't be happier than reading Artifacts. After being burnt by Marvel and DC event comics Artifacts is what I need to be reminded what an event should feel like. Something important that affects the characters more then someone just randomly dying and big explosions happening. Artifacts #2 continues the strong start of this opening arc and I give it a high recommendation to readers old and new, there's a lot to love about Artifacts and it looks like its only getting better from here.

    This issue, like the one before it, offers a fresh, exciting read with some compelling characters. Top Cow has a winner here in "Artifacts" as a new trail is blazed for these characters and their universe. Marz is putting just enough new characters and concepts in each issue to leave room for development, action, and evolution. It's a refreshing break from the standard fare on the new comic racks nowadays. This is that new comic that you've been looking for, that breath of four-color fresh air that is big and bold, but detached from excessive crossover muddling. Read Full Review
