    The artwork of Micha Gunnell and Pasquale Qualano gives you the feel of a well depicted cartoon that is rich with detail and action. This is a fun read that you won't soon forget and it has a great ending that will bring you back next month. Oh, the variant covers with supermodel Rachel Clark are not bad to look at either.

    But so far, it's very entertaining. Which is more than I can say for most actual reality TV shows. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 18, 2012

    All in all, there's a lot of good stuff going on here, overcoming my biased expectations of what to expect from both a comic about a reality TV show, and from Aspen as a publisher. Idolized #2 keeps up the good work, delivering a story with a nice hook, avoiding some big pitfalls and delivering strong art throughout, earning 3.5 out of 5 stars overall. I have to say that I'm kind of impressed with the simple yet distinctive costume design that we see on the cover as well, as it's very hard to create a truly unique-looking character after 80 years of superhero hijinks, so kudos is due there as well...

    So, in a very creative twist, the opening panel of issue 2 also functions as a lead-in to issue 3. This book should appeal to fans of reality competition shows and X-Men type books. Definitely worth checking out. Read Full Review
