    The issue answers literally no questions and offers up a bunch more, but it's intriguingly done and beautifully drawn making it another outstanding issue. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jan 22, 2020

    Although we are no closer to understanding what kind of evil is really at work in The Red Mother, it is still incredibly riveting and completely terrifying. This is a comic that will stay with you for some time. It creates an uneasy feeling that will have you looking over your shoulder hours after reading it. Daisy can only see these things because of what happened to her, so are monsters like this lurking around us and we just can't see them? It makes you wonder in the best way and that's what's making this book stand out. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Max Funkey Jan 13, 2020

    The creative team behind this comic is inspired and every aspect of the story being told is fascinating. Hahn has keyed in perfectly to the very human emotions that must drive every horror story. With Luckert and Dukeshire working alongside him this series could very well go down as a classic in comic horror. I can't recommend this series highly enough. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 15, 2020

    Danny Luckert does a beautiful job of focusing the art on the characters. The characters are detailed and expressive, giving them a sense of humanity despite the fantastic elements of the story. At the same time, the supernatural imagery is startling and engaging. Those moments draw you in visually and are scary in their progression across the panels. Read Full Review

    We don't exactly know who The Red Mother is yet, or what she is all about, but the tension is building masterfully, and the horror is exquisite. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Jan 16, 2020

    I am not a horror book fan. Still there is something about this book that catches my attention, that despite my usual lack of disinterest, I am genuinely curious and want to see what is going on. Read Full Review

    Overall, Red Mother #2 is a great second installment. The series takes a deep dive into character study as the story allows the haunting elements to slowly creep into the pages - creating the perfect tone for this horrific title. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Calum Petrie Jan 16, 2020

    The fact that there has been a slow build up of story line rather than issue #1 being saturated with too much information is interesting, while frustrating at the same time. While issue #2 is not releasing too much information about The Red Mother herself, I very much look forward to seeing where this series goes next with its horror/supernatural tones and outstanding artwork.

    AIPT - Nick Nafpliotis Jan 15, 2020

    Aside from the opening and a truly perplexing last page, not much happens to move the story forward. The scary stuff is good, but it would be nice to understand a bit more about what's happening to Daisy after two issues. That being said, Red Mother is still good enough to stay on the pull list for now. Read Full Review
