    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Jan 17, 2020

    Second Coming is now over, with a promise of season 2 on the horizon. Ahoy comics has again published one of the best books on the shelf today. If you can you need to track down the entire six-issue run or immediately order the trade. And if the subject matter turned you off, I think you will be surprised. Whether you are a die-hard atheist or a devout follower of Christ, this book deserves a place on your shelf. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Jan 18, 2020

    Like many comedic examinations of faith and society, it proves far more efficient at deconstructing the problems with organized religion and the world and posing solutions than more serious theses. The fact that this analysis comes through well-crafted artwork and funny one-liners does not diminish the power of its message. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jan 15, 2020

    As an added bonus, this book has a preview of Billionaire Island by Russell and artist Steve Pugh. That looks amazing as well. For now, this is an excellent issue and maintained the quality on this book that I have come to expect. Read Full Review

    With issue #6, Ahoys Second Coming reaches the endof its first season, as Ahoy has announced that the series will be continuing beyond its initial solicitations after a brief hiatus.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Jan 12, 2020

    Even though this reviewer wasnt a huge fan of the ending, I can still see the overall issue as creatively original, captivating, and something that has stirred up some great questions to ponder in my own faith journey. To anyone who has followed Mark Russells work in the comic realm, they would acknowledge that there have been some ups and downs. However, this series has helped to solidify his genre of comics and his place within the medium. You could even say that Ahoy Comics and Mark Russell were a match made in heaven. Look no further than their next partnership, BILLIONAIRE, which you can get a sneak peek of this issue, to see the brooding partnership continue to blossom. Guys, pick this comic up if youve been following along to date. If not, this reviewer would highly recommend the trade while keeping your eyes open for SECOND COMING Season Two on the horizon.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 15, 2020

    Pace and Kirk deliver some great art in this issue. The characters look great and the contrast in styles between the past and present are perfectly executed. A great looking issue. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 14, 2020

    Overall, issue #6 serves as a good finish to the first season of Second Cominc, though it does read like a rush to the end. Still, Russell and Pace have left things off in a great place to pick up again in the future. There's a lot to be had here, from some humor and even more great criticism and reflection on faith, Christianity, and what it means to be a martyr. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jan 16, 2020

    Second Coming #6 is a comic that is both entertaining and attempts at wrestling with the big questions in life, and Mark Russell, Richard Pace, Leonard Kirk, and Andy Troy succeed at the first part more than the second one. However, there's also a level of humility to not trying to wrap up a tale of gods and humans, faith and doubt in an easily packaged takeaway. Just like God's bowling game and metaphor, humans are flawed and messed up, but we have our moments and can find friendship and community like Jesus did with his superhero roommate in Second Coming.

    Ultimately, Second Coming was a series with visual and comedic charms, but also one that could never live up to the ambitions of its premise or the weighty themes it addressed. Read Full Review

    The flashback sequences are confusing and I am not sure where they fit within the context of the story. Read Full Review
