    This issue had the essence of a full blown, television sci-fi series. It had perfect pacing with both entertaining and informative elements of world building. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 14, 2016

    If you like storytelling and the act of telling epic stories then read Reborn because it will expand your mind. The concept is compelling and feels utterly unique, with art that's gorgeous enough to taste. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Joe Ryan Nov 16, 2016

    If you love fantasy, then this book is absolutely perfect for you. I love that we aren't just getting another by the numbers genre book, but something where there is a larger mystery going on with a ton of unanswered questions. What are Bonnie's powers? Who was Lord Golgotha in a past life or was he always here? Are people who they say they are? Why do people come into this world at different ages, and not at the age when they die? I plan to find out by continuing to read this excellent series, and you should too. Read Full Review

    CourtOfNerds - Grant Stoye Nov 18, 2016

    The only qualm I had is that Bonnie is taking this all a bit too in stride, but what the hell do I know? This is a brand new take on what happens when we leave the mortal coil, and in this world Millar and Capullo are the experts. I'm excited to see this story get more fleshed out, to see the motivations behind the peripheral characters, and to just lap up Capullo's art like a sloppy dog. Read Full Review

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Marco Piva Nov 21, 2016

    Reborn looks like a series that will give the reader a great experience. After two issues it already is extremely interesting, although it's clear that there is still a lot to be discovered. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Nov 21, 2016

    Greg Capullo's art – as always – is incredibly solid. The good people look great, and the bad people look hellish and demonic. Detail is present in every inch of the page and this new world we're exploring looks incredible. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Nov 17, 2016

    Reborn is turning into a fun fantasy adventure with plenty of twist and turns ahead. Greg Capullo and Mark Millar have created wonderful world that feels alive and vibrant. The only complaint I would have would be that this current issue and issue #1 both are really set up issues. I think it would have served the book better overall if issue #1 would have been and over-sized issue to start with, but that is the only flaw I could see. The basic world and concept are set up and Bonnie is off on her adventure and I am very muchlooking forward to what happens next! Read Full Review

    GWW - Hank Nov 21, 2016

    The issue closes out giving us a dire first impression of the villains residing in the Dark Lands. One in particular has a long history with Bonnie, her old cat is holding a grudge for having its testicles removed! The lands are dark indeed and give but a hint of the looming dark tide that Bonnie seems destined to stymie. Only two issues into the world of Reborn and already its potential discoveries and clashes tug at my psyche the way few stories have, do yourself a favor and dare to be reborn. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Nov 21, 2016

    While not as moving or beautiful as last month's, "Reborn" #2 was an enjoyable step in what looks to be " in this writer's opinion " the best thing with Millar's name on it in a long time. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Nov 16, 2016

    I'm not quite having flashbacks of Chrononauts, but this is a far cry away from Huck. I'll continue to check out Millar's work, but I don't know if I'll ever be head over heels in love with his stuff again. It's a lot of high concept ideas, paired with top artistic talent, but there's always something missing. Wish I knew what it was so I could add it to my review, but for now Reborn has me as a reader. For how long is up to the creative team. Read Full Review

    Great world-building in Capullo's art in this issue--this book is beautiful to look at. The "good" and "bad" people afterworld idea struck me as a bit simple at first, but it has the potential to make the "Where's Harry?" question much more interesting. Overall, the conceit is played well by Millar/Capullo. This is a fun read.

    Not as good as the opening issue. I hope this doesn't run out of steam as quickly as 'Empress' did.

    the whole premiss is a little hard to digest. . . . . . not sure this fictional play on the afterlife was the best setting to run with for this mini-series. . . . . . i love Greg Capullo’s art and continue to read the series just for this. but Millar’s writing feels lacking. the story feels too simple. and i’m just not buying into this whole chosen one concept. this mythology that Millar has created is not grabbing me. . . . . . . . . it just feels like when people die in the real world, they are reincarnated into another world that looks like an MMORPG. . . . . . . . . i was really hoping he was going to give us something more along the lines of Kick-Ass or Hit Girl. . . . . . still though, the Capullo art is gorgeous! so at least there plenty of eye-candy. . . . . . i just wish Millar would have thought this whole thing through better. aside from an amusing neutered pet joke, not much really happens. . . . . . . . i've said it before, and i'll say it again. if Capullo wasn't drawing this comic, i WOULD NOT be buying it!!!

    It's ok. Maybe it's just me, but so far, it feels kind of like the old lady version of Starlight. The art's pretty. *shrug*

    This issue is pretty slow and it doesn't come close to having the emotional impact of the first issue. There is a lot of world building and rule learning in this issue, but not much else. The ending however is fairly interesting. The art is great, especially the little details like the random creatures in the background. While this issue was probably appropriate for this point in the story, and while there is a huge potential with this series, this issue was nothing special.
