    Writer Ray Fawkes takes the action and excitement from issue one and keeps the pace flowing. He certainly has a remarkable and thrilling adventure with this cast of characters. Simply put, the writing is superb. His creative team partners, artist Marco Failla and colorist Stefani Rennee, give life and intensity to the title's players and scenarios they find themselves in. Once again, this trio hit the Jackpot! on issue two with no signs of slowing down. By far, this is the only comic right now that makes me anxious for the next issue. Read Full Review

    The first issue of Jackpot was something that I struggled with but kind of hoped that it would all come together as it went along. While there are books where you sense it's worth the investment in figuring it out, Jackpot in its second installment ended up just being a bit more muddled and teasing without giving enough to really connect with. There are interesting ideas in here and the characters have potential but it comes across in such a haphazard way that it doesn't feel accessible at all. I'll probably revisit the book at some point simply because I have to believe that Fawkes has something bigger in play here based on his past works and I'll want to see more of Failla's artwork as he definitely has some very fun stuff in here.
