    This is the "What If? House of M" that should have been, and now is. House of M #2 is the calm before the storm, the pieces being set up to soon be knocked over. Read Full Review

    It's an unexpected and welcome breath of fresh air, perfectly complemented by Marco Failla's own energetic drawings. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, I enjoyed #2 of HOUSE OF M far more than the books' first issue, because it does not only provide the HoM atmosphere I recall from the original book but also becomes fascinating in its very own way! Read Full Review

    X-books sometimes suffer from a overabundance of riches when it comes to their character sets and House of M #2 is a prime example of that. While not as egregious as some of its counterparts, House of M #2 still allows its main selling point, a humans vs. mutants tale of overthrowing oppression, to get bogged down in frivolous character action and distractions. Dennis Hopless and Cullen Bunn are talented writers and surely they can bring this Secret Wars tie-in for a smooth landing, but this month, their title is as shaky as Magento's hold on this kingdom. Thankfully the art team delivers more than a few fantastic pages to keep House of M #2 from being a complete wash and sometimes that is the best possible outcome. Read Full Review

    "Secret Wars" has taken readers back to some beloved storylines and served up some updated/modified versions of fan-favorite alternate realities. The most enjoyable of those haven't slogged through exposition nor did they mire themselves too deeply in the minutiae of "Secret Wars." The more entertaining tie-in titles, like "House of M" #2, presume intelligence in the reader, offer a hook for their interest and move the story along, adding in fan favorite characters and fun adventures along the way. I'm not sure where my allegiance lies at the end of this issue, but Hopeless, Bunn, Failla, Wilson and Caramagna ensured it was a fun read and have given me more than enough incentive to return for the next issue.

    Word Of The Nerd - Sean Ian Mills Sep 4, 2015

    House of M #2, like the previous issue, is an example of excess. Secret Wars already has way too many tie-ins for anybody to care about them all, but House of M might take the cake as the most pointless one. Hopeless, Bunn and Failla give it the old college try, but I would be hard-pressed to find a reason why anybody should care. Read Full Review
