    Overall, this is yet another home run for Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden – knocking the ball out of the park yet again. Pure and simple: Joe Golem: Occult Detective is pulpy, supernatural fun and a must read for fans of monster mysteries. Read Full Review

    Joe Golem: Occult Detective #2 is gritty, witty, and dark. The characters fall into the more traditional aspects of the detective genre. Yet the supernatural elements help Joe and his cast stand out as they work their way through the mystery. It is a fun tale and an example of remarkable storytelling. Read Full Review

    I sometimes worry that regular readers may get bored with me extolling the virtues of Mike Mignola and the various collaborations that make up the body of his Dark Horse work. The truth is, recently, I have been getting a little tired of certain books, but the fact that there seems no or very little continuity to think about, means that the book is more accessible.

    Overall, Joe Golem is good. I certainly can't fault it, but it hasn't really grabbed me yet either. The character types are familiar and they act exactly the way I expect them to act. I feel like there needs to be some unpredictability in the mix. At the moment, the Rat Catcher itself is where I'm engaging the most. After all, who'd have expected Joe would find the kids alive? I was expecting him to find gnawed and rotting corpses. Read Full Review

    Joe Golem: Occult Detective #2 is sharp, albeit flawed, chapter in this Mignola-verse mystery. Read Full Review
