    An exciting, insane, and emotionally-gripping issue of Spencer & Locke 2 that pays respect and attention to each major player in the story Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Andrew Huard Jun 30, 2019

    The creative team has delivered yet another heart-pounding issue that leaves the reader with a cliffhanger ending. Pepose gave some more exposition on characters that hadn't been explored in depth before. Locke's daughter Hero is sure to surprise, and will probably have her story examined in further detail at some point. Hopefully, she can avoid the same mistakes of her father's past and not become a product of her surroundings. The first series only had four issues, and if the next installment is the last, it will no doubt reach a bloody and explosive climax. Read Full Review

    Rogues Portal - Stephanie Pouliotte Jun 12, 2019

    The art just gets better with each issue; the team is really flexing their talent by taking all the right creative risks. There is such variety between the pages as the plot jumps around, yet it all ties together wonderfully. Spencer & Locke 2 #3 uses every inch of the page; you can tell they put in a lot of hours. The mutant snowmen were particularly creepy.I always really enjoy seeing more of Santiago's creative artwork. I'm also glad the snowman reference made a comeback. I recall seeing some murderous snowmen thrown into the background of an early issue, but as more of an Easter egg for Calvin and Hobbes fans. Lastly, I obviously love the Hero variant cover (feat. Mr. Rabbit); she is just channeling that Batman/Spawnenergy. Read Full Review

    Sirens of Sequentials - Jennifer DeRoss Jun 12, 2019

    Overall, this issue might take on a little too much and end up disjointed as a result; however, it is clever, emotionally complex, and deep. This might even be my favorite issue, subjectively speaking. If you loved Rocketman Reynolds, you will want to pick this up for sure. If you are looking for something to hit you right in the feels, this issue will also give you what you want. Read Full Review

    Pastrami Nation - kevin hoskinson Jun 15, 2019

    Although it's packed with plenty of action, this issue is one of the most interesting, story-driven issues in the series. We learn more about the heroes, as well as the villain. There are some genuinely surprising twists in the story that you won't see coming. It's a roller coaster ride of emotions, revelations, and action. It's a fantastic read! Read Full Review
