    Furious #2 is a very entertaining read as it improves on the first issue in every way from the action to character development. The story flows very smoothly and instead of just Cadence saying she has a past, we're shown parts of that here and an excellent job is done in making her a more interesting character, and her story one that can be invested in. This issue left me even more intrigued about the events that will unfold considering the actions taken, and with the revelation that there's one who not only knows Cadence's true identity but is directly connected to her past creates the potential for a very gripping showdown, and one that I'm looking forward to.

    Furious #2 is a hard-hitting entry that crafts something compellingly original. There are some minor hiccups with regards to the pacing but trust me that's quickly forgotten when we reach the end. Recommended. Read Full Review

    "Furious" #1 was off to a good start, but with "Furious" #2 I feel like this series has clicked fully into place. Glass and Santos' creation is very much a superhero for our time. Mixing our obsession over media figures with a smart application of superpowers, "Furious" #2 is confidently moving forward. "Furious" may only be a mini-series, but at the rate it's going, I'm finding myself hoping for more before long. Good stuff. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Feb 25, 2014

    Alright, so weve all seen comic books that deal with a first superhero type of story. However, Furious has begun to show that there is a lot more depth behind the character which makes for quite a compelling read regardless of genre. Furious #2 was a very full book that was immensely satisfying, and the story within has really started to barrel forward. A lot happened in the world of Cadence Lark this month and it will be interesting to see how things turn out. Read Full Review

    Although there are one or two moments when the exposition feels more epic than the situation warrants and the lineweight could be heavier in the action sequences to help Furious "pop," I think Glass and Santos are putting together a thought-provoking take on superheroes in the real world.

    Furious has grand potential. The writing is tough and existential, while the art is electrifying. The meta-like structure that breaks the proverbial 4th wall combined with hyper-real elements of the 21st century give some genuine thrills and make this a comic to keep your eye on.

    At this point, Furious is a confused mess. I hope Jim gibbons can straighten out the book. As an editor, he needs to make sure the story has a clear throughline, the artwork demonstrates illustrative capabilities, and that the tone of the story isn't confusing in the first two issues. The first two issues are about putting your best foot forward, and this book has yet to do that. Read Full Review
