    OverallThis was a really strong second issue. The writing was fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the discussion between Lady Baltimore and Rigo about the merits and the pitfalls of torture. I also enjoyed the sequence where Charlie Kidd gets a bit too close to Yelena and nearly pays dearly for it. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Apr 21, 2021

    Fans of either Baltimore, Joe Golem, or Mignola’s work in general will love this series. It’s paving the way for a new shared universe with plenty of potential for the future, numerous new characters and stories just begging to be explored. As opposed to Hellboy, who’s ending was prophesised early in the series, this series has so much potential and could go in any direction. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Apr 21, 2021

    Connell's detailed drawings combined with Madsen's muted color work perfectly capture the tone of this issue. The panels are engaging and creepy. I felt completely immersed in the world of the story. Read Full Review

    There's a lot packed into this issue. It makes for a slightly overwhelming first read through, but a very rewarding second read. Sofia's bravado is almost always masking something deeper, and once the truth is uncovered, there's an extra spark in the story that's an immense pleasure. This was true of the first issue and it's true here in the second. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Calum Petrie Apr 29, 2021

    Issue #2 is certainly an action packed adventure. Using a time period that most people are aware of as a framing device not only sets the struggle for our band of ragtag occult avengers, but also uses the depression and sense of overwhelming dread that Europe felt. The way in which we look at the period in history is a brilliant backdrop for more depression and struggle, and the writing team behind the Baltimore saga have done very well to bend it to their will and create a compelling story from it.

    I judged Connell's art way to harshly in the issue's review. It's not Mignola, but it's not bad. The plot is more dynamic, in the last issue, almost nothing happened, in this one there is stuff going on all the time.
