The band Motherfather is starting to wonder if maybe the whole "pretending to worship Satan" thing wasn't such a good idea-especially after Satan himself comes around for a visit!

The wickedly funny romp that mixes classic rock with black magic continues from Paul Cornell (Wolverine, Action Comics) and Tony Parker (Mass Effect: Foundation)!

    This Damned Band #2 brings a fantastic new dynamic to the story and opens up the characters for all to seetheir weakness, their fears, and their souls. With a surprising ending and a lack of the supernatural, the next issue will have a lot to explore and as the series moves forward, its sure to deliver. Read Full Review

    As a stand alone comic, you could read and enjoyThis Damned Band #2, but when read as it is intended to be – the second part in a six issue series – the comic really shines, and that's what the scores below are based on.Yes, you can still enjoy this issue by itself, but if you can track down the first issue, then do so; this is a refreshing take on the excesses of rock music that continues to be an absolute delight to read.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 2, 2015

    This Damned Band continues to bring the era alive in a way that's hard to do in this medium and I'm loving that we're getting something of this nature. Books like this are a rarity and it's one that might have some great aftermarket life in the bookstores if it's well placed and reaches the right audience. Paul Cornell continues to provide for some very loose and fun dialogue here as we see the members going through their lives amid these concerts and just how weird it all really is. At the same time it's brought to life in an even more engaging way because of Tony Parker's artwork. He's capturing the look and feel of the world in such a perfect way that it takes Cornell's dialogue up several notches. The two have a nice little package of magic here, one where I'm not sure what the end game is but I'm certainly still up for the journey. Read Full Review

    This issue isn’t as good as the first one, but if you’re into fast paced humor, this has a lot of it! The plot is going by very slowly, so hopefully Cornell can give us a little more meat to push the plot next time. For the time being, we have a very silly, funny, and enjoyable story.

    Comic Crusaders - Shane Tydeman Sep 3, 2015

    Visually Parker and Kindzierski do a wonderful job by giving the feel for the 70's by demonstrating the dress of the era and the surrounding environments, a lot of research would've been needed to keep consistency and it is believable. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Sep 1, 2015

    While the premise is absolute fried gold, the execution thus far has been a little bit off, meaning that while This Damned Band is an undeniably enjoyable read, it hasnt quite lived up to its potential just yet. However, with a little tweaking over the final two issues, I have no doubt that this wonderfully offbeat rockumentary-with-a-twist can catapult itself into must read status, and as Cat mentioned in her review of the first issue finally turn this bad boy all the way up to eleven.

    I'm not convinced that this title is beyond salvation, but this particular issue was a big miss for me. Read Full Review
