•  THE SHIELD is the only thing that protects the more civilized areas of Battleworld from the ZOMBIE HORDES, DEATH MACHINES, AND ANNIHILATION WAVES.
•   Anyone who annoys Doom gets sent to The Shield. Anyone who gets sent to the Shield deals with ABIGAIL BRAND.
•  Miss America, Lady Katherine, Kang the Conqueror, Leah Shieldmen, the Endless Summers Company, Leonardo Da Vinci and a cast of thousands will fight to the death to keep Battleworld safe. But don't worry, Kieron Gillen is writing this book, so I'm sure everything will end happily for everyone.
•  "Imagine NextWave as a tragedy," says Kieron, if anyone asks him about it.

    Appropriately, Siege #2 is set at the very centre of Battleworld, because it sits ahead of the pack in quality. Read Full Review

    Overall, I am really enjoying the story being told in this book. There is no happy ending to look forward to, and I'm ok with that.This is a tale of a group of people who wake up every day knowing it could be their last, but wake up anyway to face it. They can't win…but also can't fail. Read Full Review

    Once again the painted style of Siege really comes off unique to the story told. A grim atmosphere created from dark colors and expressions from these characters who are always prepared for the worst. The colors as well keep us on our toes for whatever is right around the corner as it has been established what is beyond the wall. Not only do you feel that the situation is grim, you also see the despair from select characters such as Brand, Leah, Chavez, Summers clone, and Katherine who are feeling the weight of it all crashing upon them. The one page showing off Ultron's army is simply astounding. When everything else seems so uniform you reach this page and it blows you away with the detail, depth, creativity, and vastness that you can only get with a robot army of that size. Truly a sight to see with so much going on in that scene. Read Full Review

    "Siege" #2 provides a slice of what "Secret Wars" can do as a concept. Gillen, Andrade, Rosenberg and Cowles construct a fun story from that concept and give readers plenty to enjoy. This isn't the most upbeat story, as horrors surround humanity, ready to scale the Shield, but Gillen gives his audience a solid read with a gripping cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    Overall, Siege #2 feels like a book that is finally getting traction. The ensemble of characters play off each other extremely well and only make us wish we had more time to spend with them before the event isover. The lack of actual battles so far is a bit of a letdown, but it's clear this book is more focused on showing us the world at The Shield than the actual fights, at least so far. The next issue, however, promises to finally deliver on the action front, and I couldn't be more ready for it (again, I'm sure Gillen's going to make me regret this eventually). Read Full Review

    I’d have to say that Siege is quickly working its way up my favorite comic books of the Secret Wars label. It has nothing to do with the original Siege title, and honestly, it doesn’t have much to do with Secret Wars. Nonetheless, it is an excellent addition to the label. If you’re a fan of Secret Wars, or just plain good writing and illustrations, you can’t miss this one! Read Full Review

    Siege #2 might not hit the same highs as Nextwave, but it sure as hell continues its ballsy legacy of being something truly singular. Read Full Review

    This is a story of the greatest possible scale punctuated by deeply personal loss, guilt, and heartbreak. This is the apocalypse writ tiny. Read Full Review
