    The different approach in this series is to its direct benefit. Whereas readers are used to reading along with heroes as they hide their secrets, here instead they read along as the hero discovers their power. The artwork is flashy and even overpowering at times, but it is equally effective as that is the same experience that Mulan is undergoing. It allows the reader to read along with the character in a way which is uncommon in the medium, as she explores her powers for the first time, but also as she is intimidated by them as she figures out how they work. While this issue is a bit light on plot developments, those promise to come and quickly, and for the time this standout issue, notable for its approach and its art, serve of an excellent example of what this creative team is capable of.

    Mulan Revelations #2 is a satisfying issue that successfully builds on all the interesting elements from the first issue and makes the story and characters even more engrossing. Mulan's use of her powers creates some intense action sequences, and the artwork conveys that beautifully. And delving more into the Hybrids and Immortals current situations and inner discussions makes for a more rewarding experience. If the first issue is an engrossing introduction to this world created byRobert Alter and Marc Andreyko then this issue gives a very convincing argument why one should stay in it because it'll be an enjoyable ride.

    Mulan: Revelations #2 is exactly the type of surprising comic that I want to find on my pull-list. It's fun, energetic and dynamic enough to earn an audience along with deserved praise. So by all means if you haven't grabbed up a copy of this title yet now's the time to start. Read Full Review

    Now this sounds like a lot of negatives, but don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed this issue. Seeing Mulan's powers in action was badass, and overall the art is still gorgeous, with great use of color. I'm just have some concerns; a book with such a cool and interesting concept is in danger of going in a very standard direction with the story. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 29, 2015

    Though I enjoyed the first installment of Mulan Revelations, it wasn't without some hesitation about the overall project. The ideas are ones I like but the execution was too familiar and without enough depth to really sink your teeth into – and that's a necessity when dealing with a story that at least feels like it needs some serious world building going on here. This issue doesn't add a lot to that overall as half of it is focused on fight and flee while the second half teases some of the elements on the bad guys side without really establishing things. In a sense, the book reads as though it should be read continuously from issue to issue and without enough in the quick reminder department for those that read monthly. That can turn the book into a chore sometimes, even as much as I hate the text boxes sometimes that brings the readers up to speed. They're a useful evil and could have been useful here to make the overall flow of the book better. Read Full Review

    This is a really great concept, and an awesome storyline. With interesting plots comes predictability, often times. I have faith in Andreyko to not fall into that pit of predictability, but it is easy to, especially with a story concept as entertaining as this. This is definitely a comic book to be keeping up with, and with the awesomeness that has come out of it so far, one to start reading if you haven’t already. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Grant Raycroft Jul 30, 2015

    Mulan Revelations is a book I wish I could like more. It has an army of fun ideas that all should come together for an action packed sci-fi romp but fail to coalesce. The story is rapid fire with little chance to slow down or be memorable with the main saving grace being Micah Kaneshiro's amazing artwork. This book is a good distraction, especially with a somewhat empty release week, but only for maybe five minutes Read Full Review

    3.5/Rating..... I’m torn with what to do. On one hand, this comic is almost a perfect example of what it entails to create a compelling plot; to have readers at the store picking up the next issue the day of its release! One the other hand, this comic is almost a perfect example of how you don’t want to tell a story; how you can make readers hesitate with wether or not to continue with series...... My recommendation is to wait for volume one to come out. That’s what I’m going to do. I think I’ll probably enjoy the series more if I can read all the issue back to back. It’s still a very good comic, and if I had the money to spare, I’d probably still buy the monthly issues – but I don’t, and there are new series starting in September and October than I am excited about......
