    A solid second issue that slowly reveals more of what lies beneath with a great climactic end. Read Full Review

    I'm not really sure what to expect from this series, I'm not really a fan of dark or violent things and most of the characters so far don't seem to have the best motives. However, things are leading up to an interesting conflict and I'm curious to see what happens. Destroyer #2 was a good read though a bit slow. One interesting note is an unseen character called "The Bride" is mentioned which also peaked my interesting since Frankenstein's monster has a bride as well, could be the same character. While this issue did not end on too much of a cliffhanger it does end in a spot that leaves readers curious and that's a good thing. Read Full Review

    A focus on modern gadgetry and bland suit wearing men detract from the exciting story that is building at the heart of Victor LaValle's Destroyer. A worthwhile read with engaging Art, but not at the same standard as issue 1. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Dan Clark Jun 30, 2017

    We are also spending a great deal of time with characters that are ultimately meaningless. The special agents from last issue return as they are trying to locate Dr. Baker. Their back and forth is humorous and the nonchalant way they approach their job makes them endearing to be around. They simply have a lot of scenes drenched in meaningless dialog that halts the pace of this story. Based on the ending of this issue it does not seem like we will be dealing with them for much longer. Hopefully, Dr. Baker can bring some character and purpose to make this book more worth your time. There is a good story here if Victor LaValle and Dietrich Smith can find it. Read Full Review
