    If you haven't been picking up Black Mask Studios publications, you are missing out. In the last few months, Black Mask has put out a whole host of fantastic books, and the quality on this one is no different. Fun, action-filled, puppy-loving, and beautifully rendered, Critical Hit #2 is a must buy. I've been feeling a breeze on my feet, because this book knocked me out of socks. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Oct 29, 2014

    This book might be too in your face and I get that; some people want fantasy and good times in their comics, but I think that Critical Hit tackles some important subjects and reminds me a lot of punk music. Sure there are songs that are fun and you can skank to, but then there's songs that make you think and craft a picture of the world that you're not seeing all the time. But just because it's not your cup of tea doesn't mean that it's not a solid debut for a new series. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Oct 29, 2014

    Critical Hit #2 takes a more character driven approach, and engrains itself in the real world horror of vigilante justice with a legitimately shocking issue. I was floored by the final page, and shocked by the horribly realistic scenario Matt Miners heroes have found themselves in. Read Full Review

    Critical Hit follows in the footsteps of Liberator, existing as its own story with its own twists and surprises. It's definitely not for everyone, between its harsh language and disturbing imagery many will be put off by this book. But once you dive deeper into the story and understand the characters motives and personalities , Critical Hit becomes a thrilling fight for survival in a world turned upside-down. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Sam LeBas Oct 31, 2014

    The success of this series is almost completely focused on the details. There are no plot holes, or set-ups that don't come to fruition. The incredible commitment to the follow through makes the story very persuasive. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Brian Reed Nov 12, 2014

    I hate to say it, but this book really falls short on most accounts. If it is going to be a torture fantasy, it's got far too much back ground going on to be good at it, and if it is trying to tell a good story, it's failing there by spending so much time on the mindless violence. There's very little worth coming back for, so unless you're just dying to know what happens to Sarah next, I can't imagine anyone caring about issue #3. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Oct 29, 2014

    After two issues of Critical Hit, the story is filling itself in. It remains unclear if the issues will focus around this encounter and the events that led to it, or if it will branch out more. As of now, the energy and tension that has been maintained so far has been satisfying enough. With only two of the core team involved in the present day plot, it will be curious to see if the others come into play before Bill gets carried away. Ultimately, Critical Hit remains a strong title.
