    As with the first issue Morrison and Child have done a fantastic job of presenting an engaging story, that hooks the reader from the start of the issue. As the story begins to explore the supernatural more I think the it can only get better. The art is fantastic, and the colouring is superb, with both of these combined presenting another stylistic and eye-catching issue. I am very excited to see how the story of 'Proctor Valley Road' continues and how the book will most likely only jump from stength to strength as a limited series. Read Full Review

    The story is fun, the themes are well represented, and the execution is on point. There's really not more to say other than this is quickly becoming a must-read comic. There is a tightness in the storytelling from both a writing and visual perspective that can't be overstated, while still being ambitious and taking big swings to get the dramatic reveals to land and I for one can't wait for the next issue.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Justin Munday Apr 14, 2021

    A wickedly smart and funny comic issue that doubles down on the socio-political issues of its era via character storytelling almost to the point where the supernatural elements fell out of place. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Apr 14, 2021

    Proctor Valley Road #2 does a great job of keeping readers interested. Child and Morrison do a great job of fleshing the characters out and keeping the intrigue going. Their writing combined with Franquiz's deft pencils makes this book a treat to come back to. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Apr 14, 2021

    Proctor Valley Road #2 is a solid second issue. It takes the ideas started in the debut and ramps them up a bit. The time period is more of a factor. The small town aspect too comes into play a bit more. It's all small details that really adds to he series and makes it much more interesting. The seeds laid out to start are really paying off and has me clamoring to find out what happens next. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Apr 28, 2021

    Proctor Valley Road is just getting started and it's already filled with scares, solid characters, and dynamite artwork. The mystery is still unfolding, but it's clear there are some deadly and terrifying things lurking down this haunted street. Proctor Valley Road hits with the same feeling as driving down a lonely highway in the middle of the night and feeling a shiver run up your spine. Read Full Review
