    Touted as a jump on point, this book manages to introduce and develop at the same time, setting up Faith's next challenges, which I am sure will be just a daunting as that dreaded canvas of white, just waiting to absorb her creativity without feeling or remorse. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Jun 9, 2020

    All in all, if you're in the market for some niche, devil-centric, comic erotica, Faithless II #1 very much fits the bill. It is beautifully executed, unburdened from having to get all of the characters in position, and able to captivate more readily and easily between the beautiful artwork and solid text.

    Sequential Planet - Alexander Cole Jun 9, 2020

    This was a really good book that goes out of its way to tackle some themes that I don't feel get enough attention in comics. The writing of the story, its characters, and dialogue as well as the way these themes are handled are all brilliantly done. The artwork is inventive and gorgeous to look at as well. This is also one of the few comics where the lettering actually stands out in a good way and adds to the comics. I think it would actually be a good issue for professionals to teach people about the use of lettering in comics. It really is a shining example of what a good letterer can contribute to a comic. I thoroughly enjoyed this comic and I'll definitely be following the rest of this volume. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Jacob Cordas Jun 9, 2020

    Faithless II #1, while still a good comic, is a bit of let down. The first volume was so strong that even this solid output feels like a real missed opportunity. While I will still keep following this series, I cant shake the feeling this couldve been better. Read Full Review

    Faithless fans will be thrilled to revisit its fascinating characters in Faithless II but, while far from being a disappointment, the issue doesn't offer readers much to entice them to return for the next issue, other than for Llovet's gorgeous art. Read Full Review
