    Great comic that has a high quality team and with the novelty that its first number was sold out before arriving at the shelves and surely will be one of the big titles for this 2020. Read Full Review

    Folklords #2 takes the journey of Ansel off the beaten track. If it seemed predictable, this proves the story has more to offer. This, surprisingly chilling, issue is written so that its secrets stay hidden while taking the characters on a journey they, and the readers, couldn’t have seen coming. And its paired with art that plays to the creepy nature of its setting and situations. I was in for this series because it started the story off well, but now I’m hooked because I can’t see where it’s going. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau Dec 20, 2019

    There is a lot of subtlety here that you will only get by paying close attention. The flashback with archer's family is one such moment. While Archer's interpretation is that his parents grew old and they loved him; but it is far from the truth. Read Full Review

    Folklords #2 had a lot of disturbing"yet fascinating"undertones. And it's impossible not to be intrigued by what is unfolding right in front of us. Ansel's quest was one that sounded interesting right from the start. But it's the twists and turns that are keeping this tale interesting. And I, for one, am looking forward to seeing how this latest twist concludes. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Elizabeth Fazzio Dec 19, 2019

    I have conflicting feelings about Folklords. On one hand, it is following a long-used format, and is therefore rather predictable and familiar. On the other, as a devotee of the musical Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim, I always appreciate a re-weaving of the stories we all know. Then again, this re-weaving has yet to turn anything on its head and thereby prove itself to be unique within the confines of the trope--though I may be proven wrong yet. We still have three issues in this arc. Read Full Review

    . Basically, if this one managed to hook you in you'll probably be in it for the long haul. If not...well I don't blame you. Read Full Review
