    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Sep 21, 2019

    Second Coming continues to be an amazing book. Ahoy Comics made the smart choice in picking up this series. Anyone who feels that the concept of this book could be disrespectful will be pleasantly surprised by the intelligence that team here handles the material. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Sep 19, 2019

    This all leads to a stunner of a cliffhanger which is so good, that I can't get it out of my head. I'm was floored. I have nothing more to say except to thank Russell and Pace for making this book. It's just stunning. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Sep 18, 2019

    Second Coming remains smart enough, and that goes a long way, but this third issue seems worryingly unfocused. Heres hoping that the introduction of Satan as a character and the significant plot development at the end of this issue signal a return to tight plotting and story focus in future issues.

    Weird Science - Dispatch Sep 16, 2019

    Overall, Russell, Pace, and their creative team blend their ideas together flawlessly. Readers can see the relationship formed between this entire creative crew as their comical quips turn into thought-provoking lessons on religion and humanity. Russell is definitely setting up something big between Jesus, Satan, and God Himself that will reach a climax as the series continues. Will Sunstar, as well as humanity be in the crossfire? You'll have to read on to find out! This reviewer will certainly be continuing his journey through SECOND COMING and I pray many more will too. Pick this issue up and let me know what you think.  Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 17, 2019

    The first five pages are great as Russell and Pace continue to pick apart superheroes and how love, not violence, can actually work. The rest of the book, however, is so sad and crushingly hopeless it's hard to enjoy. Read Full Review

  • 4.0 - Chase Magnett Sep 18, 2019

    Second Coming is capable of delivering some excellent gags, but for a series with so many big thoughts on its mind those rare moments of delight don't balance out a scattershot blurting of many ideas with no through line. Read Full Review

    Precisely what would happen if Jesus was to quietly come back to earth. This issue was full of good and clever humor with a great cliffhanger.

    Three issues deep and it finally feels like Second Coming is going somewhere. Not sure why but we have lift off.

    The plot with Sunstar just isn't grabbing me at all. In this issue, we spend time with him as he tries to find his missing grandmother in Littleton. This segment of the book was a bit boring and Sunstar honestly comes off as a crybaby. At one point he has a monologue in which I wished his girlfriend would cut him off and say STFU. At this point in the story, I feel like a street-level superhero with a passive ability may have served this story better. He'd still have superpowers but would be more grounded. Choosing a Superman type character doesn't seem to be adding anything. Yes, I know that issue #6 came out this w more

    "I don't know any 'Paul'." Tell 'em JC! This issue is actually more focused on Sunstar's baggage, which is fairly sad. There's a crazy short story involving aliens as a backup too.
