    This is a really fun, imaginative all ages series. You don’t necessarily have to read the first series to understand this series, but there are times when you’ll wish you had.

    Where "belief" was the focal point of Figment, "doubt" becomes the central theme for Figment 2 as Blarion and Figment find that the 21st century isn't as imaginative as the time they come from. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - John Newby Sep 2, 2015

    Even if you haven't read the first miniseries detailing Figment and Dreamfinder's origins, Figment 2 #1 is still worth reading. The story is interesting and appropriate for all ages, and the art just makes everything more cheerful. Sure, the chairman can be an occasional downer, but Figment and Dreamfinder are a nice balance.

    Comix I Read - Kyle Pitman Sep 7, 2015

    Although Figment 2 #1 is a book meant for kids, there's enough there in the writing and artwork for older readers to appreciate. Even though I mentioned the tie-ins dampened my experience, the story and the sense of fun was enough to pique my interest and keep me coming back for more. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 1, 2015

    Unfortunately, the story in "Figment 2" #1 is not as whimsical as Figment himself, as it goes to great lengths to establish the characters, the Academy and the mystery to be investigated further over the course of this series. It does have moments of fun, however, and is a nice, clean package ready for all ages to thoroughly enjoy. , However, younger readers and those with shorter attention spans might find the issue lacking, though Zub and Bachs give the little dragon enough fun moments to encourage readers to return next issue when the action hopefully picks up.

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Sep 3, 2015

    Figment 2 #1 is a decent enough jumping-on point. The main plot of this issue seems to be a reiteration of the first storyline, but Zub definitely sets it up for potential new twists and the introduction of Capricious is sure to be a game changer. The artwork was light-hearted and enjoyable, but wasn't afraid to use colors to depict Dreamfinder's mood. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Sep 1, 2015

    Yet there clearly has to be something to Figment 2, as Marvel and Disney likely wouldn't keep pursuing this property - or keep this writer attached - if it wasn't hitting some sort of expectation. There's a lot inherent to Figment as a concept that kids will likely enjoy - who doesn't like the idea of having their own flying machine, or a talking pet dragon sidekick to accompany you on your adventures? Unfortunately, this particular installment has a bit of a slow start - fans of the original Figment will likely have the strength to be patient, but readers who missed the original series might not get what the hubbub was all about.
