    As a long-time fan of anything with Mignolas name on it, it was still surprising to see just how terrific this latest issue of Lobster Johnson was. This really was a perfect book that hit all the right notes for any fan of this character. This issue has action, excitement, a ton of intriguing mystery, and really started to provide some very interesting potential backstory for the Lobster himself. This was both a perfect Mignolaverse book and also a perfect pulp-action book, and easily among the very best yarn featuring Lobster Johnson. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Sean M. Thompson Mar 5, 2014

    The only complaint is that yes, it's enough to keep me going, but am I going to rush out and get the new one the first chance I get? Probably not. Still, it's a good read, and I do what to see where this Lobster is headed. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Nick Philpott Mar 5, 2014

    There are a few things about this miniseries that I'm still shaky on. I still have zero idea what the Nazi dirigible is about. I feel like it might be connected to the reveal at the end of the issue, but the reveal was a character that I didn't recognize, so it didn't quite land with me. I'm still not sure how the Bear and the Devil fit into the game. I'm quietly hoping it's presaging WWII with the Devil being Hitler and the Bear being Stalin, but I… very much doubt that's the case. Although, there is a bad guy who is obsessed with miniature towns, and I think he would like that symbolism. But now I'm just into rank speculation, and I won't subject you to more of it.

    We The Nerdy - Eduardo Gueiros Mar 11, 2014

    Overall, the issue was incredible, even if it did fall slightly short of the excitement in the first book. The art was magnificent, and the story was solid. The underlying story is slowly developing, and the climax is starting to take shape. The team of Mignola, Arcudi, Zonjic, and Stewart has worked wonderfully together, and has created a cohesive series within which both story and art come together to create a unified tone. The examples theyve shown so far have left me incredibly anxious to see what comes next. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Mar 6, 2014

    So consider this a more mixed review. There's still more than enough in this issue to recommend Get The Lobster #2, and the good stuff is really good. I just wish the comic had found a more centered focus, especially for the 2nd issue. Read Full Review
