    Bunn and Scharf's shock tactics are working here. As the Chimera flex their powers in the diner we see their apparent disregard for life and their god-like devotion from the cult. Issue #3 will probably dive back towards their origin a bit more as well as showing what the outcome in Kingsly was. Do not east before reading. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Jul 9, 2021

    This comic has the right amount of horror, dread and Tarantino-type story telling (that's a compliment) that can easily be translated to the big screen as a movie. These kindred of the senses are scary. I am not sure how this vengeance tale is going to play out, but it definitely makes me more appreciative of all my senses. What a cliffhanger as two frames of this comic gives us Hannah's motivation in the fullest! Read this comic on the edge of your seat as it is written for you to do so! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 7, 2021

    Scharf crafts some beautifully dark imagery to match the darkness of the story. The visuals are jarring and highly detailed which adds to the horror of the moment. A great looking issue from start to finish. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 6, 2021

    Basilisk #2 is a good second issue, but it leaves you wanting more. The flashbacks continue to be a high point in the way they are drawn, and the darkness inside these super-powered characters is enjoyable, but where we go from here feels too unsure. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Evan Valentine Jul 7, 2021

    The series continues to remain a solid one with decent enough characterization, it's just lacking some oomph to really set it apart from the crowd when it comes to some of the modern day events and characters that we're following. Read Full Review
