    Another fantastic issue in the rebooted Buffyverse, only two issues into Hellmouth and the stakes are already so high. The excellent storytelling matched by outstanding artwork makes this issue and whole event a must have for Buffy fans new and old. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Nov 14, 2019

    That being said, Carlini's art is gorgeous horror. The creature design is beautiful and the monsters are distinct from anything I've seen before " save for the vampires of the Hellmouth that draw direct inspiration from season seven of the television series. The tone of this event, set by the art, is more akin to the beauty and darkness of Gleb Melnikov's work on the art of the ongoing Angelseries than the current comedic art in theBuffy the Vampireseries. By keeping the darkness in the art and bringing in the camp in the dialogue,Hellmouth #2is a great blend of both worlds. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Nov 13, 2019

    Expect the unexpected, but expect horrors nonetheless. Hellmouth #2 introduced us to a new world of fighting evil. One where the true obstacles exist in your head. In the case of Buffy and Angel, that is more than enough obstacles to overcome. The best takeaway was understanding that this is all treading new territory, no matter how experienced you think you are. Read Full Review

    So far, the first Buffy and Angel comics crossover is a worthwhile trip through the gates of Hell. Read Full Review

    Yes, the plan on how Angel and Buffy are supposed to fight this is still incredibly vague. And yes, a demon that manifests itself as the protagonists' loved ones/people they couldn't save is tired and well-worn territory. But when it's being drawn by Carlini and buffeted by some truly enjoyable dialogue, it's enough to make you feel like the Buffyverse might finally be opening up along with the new Hellmouth.

    The Hellmouth crossover event is unfolding beautifully. Who is in charge? Why is there a full city in the Hellmouth? How does Ulfreth know everyone's fears? What they hell are they? I suspect the best and only way to find out is to tune in next week for Angel #7. I know I will. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Nov 13, 2019

    The Hellmouth crossover has been a strange beast, producing series-best tie-in issues in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel titles while their supposed leads are away. Meanwhile, however, those leads are here, in the Hellmouth, not doing anything terribly exciting. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Nov 26, 2019

    "Hellmouth" continues to tread water in an issue that's almost all action, no plot. It's hard to say where this story is going at this point, because the writers have given readers so little to work with. Read Full Review
