    Inferno moves right along here in doing some plot and exposition pieces, relatively speaking, and sets the stage for the big fight to come. What works for me here is the lightness of it all because it doesn't have to be deep. It has to be fun and to work the twisty nature of things to present a situation that fans of the characters can connect with and fill in the blanks on. And it does just that, letting us enjoy Maddie as the Goblin Queen again, seeing what Darkchylde and N'astrith are up to and also just to enjoy seeing Colossus with the the focus he has here to do what he can to save his sister. It's a fun little story that lets him work with Maddie, take on the Soulsword and hope that he doesn't end up killing the one he's trying to save, even if that may be for the best in the end. It's a solidly fun book through and through with the writing, character and artwork, making me want to pull out my old singles again to read the original storyline. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Jun 10, 2015

    There is a general lack of description in this issue, as the reader is seemingly supposed to let go of trying to make sense of what is happening in the interest of allowing the demon world to exist. While this is a bit of a letdown in terms of the pacing the issue is saved by the well written characters, as specifically the interaction between Colossus and Madelyne, and also between Domino and Madelyne's son save this issue from going off the tracks. Heading into the next issue it would seem as though there is a stronger direction for this series, and while the setting is bizarre, that the creative team is making it work. Read Full Review

    The issue ends strong with a gut wrenching reveal that sets up what will almost certainly set up the battle that will make this series. Where the first part introduced the world, this issue spends its time arranging pieces towards what looks to be an action packed end game. Of the Secret Wars stories Inferno is one of the more purposefully jovial entries. It is a lot of fun and something that can be enjoyed without concerning yourself with the big Secret Wars event surrounding it.All together, that makes Inferno a book very worth reading for just about everyone.

    . The book is as much a chance for Dennis Hopeless to reconnect with characters from his X-Force work as anything else, which is probably why the characterization is so appealing. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Harry Roachford Jun 12, 2015

    In many ways this, issue is superior to the first one. Madelyne is funny and engaging and Colossus' determination to save his sister is sweet. Despite the fact the plot and art are by no means perfect and the colors at times seem bizarrely bright for such a dark setting, this is a fairly decent issue. The following issue looks to be action packed and will hopefully provide some answers to where this story will lead. Read Full Review
