A nerve-racking thriller from crime writer Christa Faust and blockbuster artist Mike Deodato Jr. ( The Resistance, Infinity Wars ). April Walters is a hit-and-run victim of life - a middle-aged soccer mom whose inner fire has been snuffed out by her dreary suburban existence. When her teenaged daughter goes missing under mysterious circumstances, April embarks on a harrowing mission to find her; a journey that takes her through the underbelly of her suburban community and sets her on a collision course with a massive crime syndicate and its lethal matriarch. Tested to her limits and beyond, April discovers that hell hath no fury like a mother more

    Bad Mother #2 helps sell the emotional aspect of the first issue and stacks the deck against the main character, April. It'll be interesting to see what she does next to try and get her daughter back. Otherwise, the pacing, writing, and art are all solid here. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Sep 10, 2020

    The spiritual successor to Taken and Breaking Bad, the storytelling plays to the strengths of the medium to tell a compulsive and exciting crime thriller. The lengths a mother will go to save their child has been explored plenty before, but having a typical suburban mum as the protagonist is a stroke of genius. Stunning art and colours are just the icing on the cake. Read Full Review

    As much as I enjoyed this book, this genre always frustrates me. Whenever something bad happens to the family question, the remaining members become super great at stuff. Take this example; April is a downtrodden, sick of like, world weary type of character. This is established in book one and is carried over well here. But she turns into some sort of super sleuth to get on her missing daughters trail. This isn't the fault of anyone involved in the book; this is a great example of the crime / mystery genre; but this quirk is bothersome to me. Read Full Review
