    Witchfinder: The Mysteries of Unland #2 is an excellent follow-up issue that continues the blazing start to the series. The heart-pounding suspense is just one of the many enjoyable aspects of the writing and the way the story flows as you'll be so engrossed in the mysteries and the events unfolding, the excitement won't stop until you close the book. And Hallam now being a fully realized town makes what's at stake feel real and solving the mysteries that more vital. Two issues in I'm fully onboard and can't wait to see where Sir Edward takes it from here. Read Full Review

    Gothic horror is alive and well, and festering quickly in The Mysteries of the Unland. Much better than any tonic or elixir. Read Full Review

    Sir Edward Grey is his own Sherlock Holmes and Watson, using his powers of deduction to track down the squirming evil at work in Hallam.  Although he's facing this darkness alone, he does so with bravery and determination.  It's no wonder that he exists in the same world as Hellboy, as he could easily stand next to Red in the battle against things that go bump in the night.

    Witchfinder is still proving to be an impressive detective mystery, but I hope the revelations are better placed in the rest of the story. Read Full Review

    Yet another entertaining and great issue from the creative team. I'm definitely hooked on the series until the end of the storyline and look forward to seeing the mystery play out on the page. If you like the Mignolaverse then you'll like this series, its right a home with the rest of the wonderful characters Mignola has created. Read Full Review

    This was a quieter issue mainly concerned with set-up. The British-ness of Sir Edward's wit is particularly enjoyable, and Tyler Crook's work is excellent. For the most part though, the mysteries of Unland are still unfolding. We've been shown but a glimpse of what's really going on, and now that the ground work has been laid, I'm eager to discover more it the next part. Read Full Review

    While this issue may not have been as exciting as usual, the latest installment in Witchfinder was a fairly enjoyable read that keeps the mystery rolling forward. This was a very creepy issue that does a terrific job of employing some classic horror elements. Read Full Review
