    Newsarama - Richard Gray Jul 1, 2015

    Bizarro is not going to appeal to all tastes, as there will be those looking for the tragic figure of Geoff Johns' B-0 last seen as the failed experiment of Luthor in the pages of Justice League. Yet if the Teen Titans can have their Teen Titans Go!, then Bizarro can happily coexist alongside the rest of the DC multiverse. Perhaps the only problem is that this series has a limited run, at least for now. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori Jul 3, 2015

    A fun, fast-paced issue that proves there is plenty of value in mining some of the fun and funny out of DC Comics, Bizarro #2 is the book youre going to read before going to sleep and then hand off to your kid to read at the breakfast table instead of the back of a cereal box. Corson and Duarte are bringing what is hopefully the first of many, many books like this from DC Comics. And thats not Bizarro-speak at all. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 1, 2015

    While this issue is a bit more setup than expected and Heath Corson zips through some great opportunities, it's still a really fun issue.  The combination of zany story and greatly appropriate art make Bizarro a one-stop shop for smiles.  You like smiling, don't you? Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Jul 2, 2015

    Overall: One of the more pleasant surprises to come out of this crop of new books,Bizarrois a delight to read. The simple plots may not be for everyone, but smart gags and fun one-liners should make even the most jaded of readers crack a smile. There's very little Batman in this issue, but what's there is gold, so everyone pick it up and enjoy. Read Full Review

    For a comic written and drawn "on a cell phone in the middle of a thunderstorm" this is a pretty enjoyable and visually appealing read. This one gets the go ahead to buy from me. Read Full Review

    Overall, the second issue of this series continues the tone established in the first one. It doesn't feel as exciting, since the element of surprise and newness is no longer here, but the creative team continues to create fun, entertaining stories with a fresh perspective. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Jul 1, 2015

    It is not entirely clear if the creative team behind this series don't have a firm grasp of the difference between random and funny. This is supposedly a series aimed at a younger market, but the jokes are more like those for adults, while keeping the setting a bit younger. The end result is a story which doesn't really hit its mark in either way. There are those that are bound to like this for taking a more lighthearted look at superheroes, but equally it seems as though this could be this issue's only saving grace. The first issue had some redeeming factors, but this issue is a bit of a mess, and it would have been better off sticking with one inspiration, like the Egyptian occult, as opposed to bouncing all over the place.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 4, 2015

    Man, I really wanted to like Bizarro. I thought it might be DC's answer to Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. But it's definitely not. It's fine, by all means. I'm sure there are people loving these two issues. But the humor is definitely not my cup of tea. Read Full Review
