    Briggs Land continues to be a compelling must read. The characters and world this creative team are developing are worthwhile storytelling elements that can stand up against any other comics work. Read Full Review

    Briggs Land #2 feels more like a reaction than a necessarily organic escalation to Brian Wood and Mack Chater's stellar first issue, but there are some glimmers of genius to this subversive series' sophomore effort. Read Full Review

    Bottom Line: This issue wasn't as suspenseful as the first but there's still more than enough family tension, questions of who to trust and overall world building to make this a solid effort. Read Full Review

    So, while this issue doesn't have the same "jump off the page" quality that the first had, it does present an interesting direction for Grace's character to evolve. If it pans out, that ought to make for good reading. Read Full Review

    Briggs Land is certainly starting off well overall and while I can see how this might end up being a bit more compelling in TV form I'm definitely enjoying what we get here. It comes down to there's only so much you can do in the space of a single issue like this because you can't over compress what's going on. That we get a few pages with Chater simply showing how people are getting ready to head into the Village is highly useful because their routine and how they present themeslves is definitely engaging but also revealing of various quirks. I'm totally digging Chater's work and he seems really well suited to something like this and other grounded stories. Wood has a lot going on with this and you can see a million different directions it can go, which just makes it even more exciting. Read Full Review

    I haven't seen a creative team work more in sync with each other than this in a while. Each character has flaws, and we are reminded of them constantly. Briggs Land is a place where nearly anything can happen, so I'm at the edge of my seat waiting to see how Grace handles her new land and even what she has done in her past to make her capable of this. This series is definitely worth the read for anyone who enjoys a dramatic story with a lot of depth and characterization. Read Full Review
