    I liked the first issue for sure. There was a lot to latch onto, but this issue takes everything to a new level and really changes the quality of the series. If it continues at this rate it could very well become a successful and long lasting series. I once again encourage you to check out this series even if you’re on the fence. If you like Rucka’s Punisher, then this will blow you away. Read Full Review

    This comic may sound like something you would normally not read but this is my pick of the week if you want a break from the capes and cowls. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 11, 2012

    "Stumptown" #2 is nothing at all like any of the other comics that came out this week. It's a detective story with a touch of melodrama. It's both drama and sitcom. More than once, Rucka has made comparisons between this series and "The Rockford Files," a vibe many readers will be able to connect with. Dex is smart, funny, and prone to bad luck as evidenced by the "Oh, fudge!" look on Dex's face in the final panel of this issue. She's also so believably human that "Stumptown" #2 is sure to provide any number of common threads relatable to readers. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Oct 14, 2012

    This second volume of Stumptown is really a whole other beast from the first. But again, that's not a bad thing. Greg Rucka and company are bringing a different vibe to the continuing adventures of Dex Parios, and it's a welcome change. We're getting bits and pieces of a much bigger puzzle here, so each chapter feels like it imparts a little more information for us to understand the mystery, which makes the reading experience that much richer.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Oct 16, 2012

    Very disappointing. This was a series I was looking forward to since it was first rumored a year or so ago. The story is okay, but specific elements of the art are holding this back. Read Full Review
