The end of the world is nigh, now that the sleeper has become the sleepwalker!
But what is Briar Rose to do about it, now that no one believes in magic, and the fairytale is long over?
Her own fairy godmothers may be the key to setting things right... That is except for Grendrid, the tyrant of this wasteland... who sends a bounty hunter and a deadly group of assassins on Briar's trail.
The only hope may lie in the marshes and their strange inhabitants, but their twisted faith in magic may not be what Briar expects...

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 30, 2022

    Briar #2 is a fantastic follow-up to the first issue, further fleshing out its characters and revealing new things about what has happened to the world. Add in vivid dialogue and vivid art, and you have a tale that beautifully blends a magical world and a deeply involving story. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Nov 29, 2022

    The final pages give our hapless protagonists a new direction to travel in, and as I said above, it's impossible not to find yourself completely drawn into this violent, murky and darkly comic fairytale reimagining. Another home run for BOOM! Studios' creator-owned slate of comics then, and series that once again gets my emphatic recommendation. Read Full Review

    Garcia crafts some beautifully detailed art throughout the issue. There are some great visual moments with the characters as well as great looks at the world they inhabit. Read Full Review

  • 7.0 - Logan Moore Nov 30, 2022

    A number of new characters come into play and a fair amount of lore and backstory is dumped quickly. This makes Briar #2 a bit more cumbersome compared to the inaugural chapter, but this is to be expected to some degree given that this series is still in its early stages. Read Full Review
