    Justin Greenwood's art is amazing. He makes the characters look amazing and the action is framed beautifully. There is a lot to love visually about this issue including the beautifully detailed backgrounds. Read Full Review

    I really liked Crone in its first issue and what it was doing and that had me hopeful that it has a good path forward. The second installment shows her shedding what she's been for years in order to seek out what she needs through another method and I'm definitely looking forward to seeing more of how she can handle the different narrative of the world than she was used to. Culver's script is solid and covers a lot of things in narration while Greenwood's artwork is strong throughout, making for a compelling read. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Nov 30, 2019

    Crone #2 is a worthy follow up to the first issue that completely captivated me. While it's emotional power isn't quite at that same level, it is still a wonderfully delivered issue. It finds a way to bring Bess to where the story clearly needs her to be without feeling forced. There is no sudden rejuvenation of spirit at the behest of an old friend. Bess is Bess. While this may make her come off as a bit of a sullen lead, the book isn't titled Crone for nothing. Plus, it will make her final destination all the more rewarding if it feels truly earned by the character and not just gifted by the writer. Read Full Review

    While the dive into Blisss past is intriguing, Crone #2 (Culver, Greenwood, Simpson, Brousseau) doesnt quite hit the right notes for a strong continuation of the series. Read Full Review
