    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Oct 2, 2013

    HIT #2 continues to be a great book, due to some fantastic writing and art that combine to create a total package of noir goodness. Carlson and Del Rey have put together a book that captures a long-past era, but still manages to feel fresh and new, while containing many of the conventions that make stories like this so compelling in the first place. Pick up your copy of HIT today; you won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Adam Kelly Oct 2, 2013

    I wish there were more real 'hit squad' stories in the back of the book like the first issue and some of the 1950's advertisements spoof-like advertisements would have been great, but these are minor gripes. This is a noir story that will have you deeply invested in its cast of characters and every seedy section of the city they explore. I'm excited to see what comes next, and judging by the nature of the twists and turns thus far, I have no idea what that is but I'll sure be following this story until its bitter end.

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Oct 2, 2013

    Hit is a four issue mini-series, which makes this issue the halfway point of the story, and if the last two issues are as good as these first two then this is shaping up to be one of the best series of its genre. It will be fun to see where this series goes because if you've made it this far and are intrigued then you have to see how this will all end for Slater. Read Full Review
