    There's a lot let to unpack in The Black Monday Murders #2 which I don't feel at all qualified to do, but I'm looking forward to seeing how things develop over the coming months. Hickman and Coker are both working at the top of their game and are clearly having a good time doing it. There's also a lot of material left to explain and develop before the mysteriousness of the comic wears out its welcome, but as is, The Black Monday Murders is not one to miss. Read Full Review

    The Black Monday Murders #2 is as a good a second chapter as you will find in any title. It builds on the groundwork of the first issue and expands upon it without giving too much away but giving enough to make you want more. Read Full Review

    That these are all masters of their craft, such that the slightest difference in how they lay pencil or brush on the page, the merest shift in dialog, yields a vastly different reaction to a given passage. And that it is so nuanced that you do not even detect exactly what it is that caused you to react or feel something different. The book is likely headed for greatness. The only thing needed is a bit more emotionally. Something that makes the reader compassionate about one of these characters so that they feel something whenever a tragedy might strike or a victory be gained. It's a little thing, but it might be the small difference between excellent and superb. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 15, 2016

    There's a lot to be said for the oversized approach to this series. each 56-page issue is more akin to a mini-graphic novel than a monthly installment. This allows Jonathan Hickman and Tomm Coker to very quickly and cleanly build up this new universe and flesh out the main players. And with multiple story segments set at different points in time, sporadic prose segments and various bits of Hickman's trademark graphic design work, the series certainly isn't lacking in variety.

    Capeless Crusader - Josh Epstein Sep 14, 2016

    VERDICTDespite its slow pace, the second issue of The Black Monday Murders remains a darkly compelling story which both educates and entertains. It is Hickman doing what he does best: shining a light into the dark corners of society and revealing the entrenched power structures which control it. The combination of depth and it's perfectly crafted artistic sensibility are enough to earn this month's issue a solid 8/10. Read Full Review
