    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Feb 28, 2018

    Writer Saladin Ahmed has created an intriguing and powerful character in Elena Abbott. You can't help but get wrapped up in her life and her pursuit for the truth. This puts her in danger and she's not going to back down any time soon. We get a ton of information in this issue about this case and it's done in an organic way that never feels like an exposition dump. Abbott is a solid detective story mixed with just the right amount of supernatural terror. Read Full Review

    For all of my gripes with Abbott #2 it is undoubtably a fantastic follow-up to an incredible first issue. Ahmed and Kivel deliver on a handful of the promises of the introductory issue while also bringing forth new mysteries and interesting characters that will only benefit the series in the long run. Abbott continues to be one of the best new series of this year. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Elias Rosner Mar 1, 2018

    Unnecessary repetition and the wrong choice of opening and closing holds back an otherwise fantastic issue filled with exquisite paneling, fantastic character moments and an intriguing mystery. Hopefully the next one can recapture the magic of the first issue. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 3, 2018

    Abbott #2 is frustrating. It has a story baking underneath the supernatural elements, and the lead is a fantastic character with an interesting history that keeps coming back to haunt her. However, the supernatural themes feel like theyre hijacking the story, and the dialogue is daunting in its sheer volume. I can still tentatively recommend this one and want to promote its good ideas. Just beware of its drawbacks should you choose to read it. Read Full Review

    The action is picking up, but aside from the art, it's hard to get invested in the story. Read Full Review
