    Overall, this was a very good issue of Blood Syndicate. Thorne, ChrisCross, Quintana and Castro are giving this book their all. While it falters in small areas, its still well worth your time! Read Full Review

    Blood Syndicate: Season One #2 is a character driven chapter. It might be too slow for some readers, but the craftsmanship is top notch. Read Full Review

    Blood Syndicate: Season One does a great job of re-introducing this Milestone property to the world and it's certainly worth reading if you're looking for a new take on the world of superpowered beings. Read Full Review

    So the stakes are definitely raised this issue, but this story sort of feels disconnected from the Wildstorm universe as a wholemaybe by design. Read Full Review

    If you enjoy your super heroes with a realistic, hard edge then Blood Syndicate is the series for you. In the vein of The Boys or the work of Spike Lee, this gritty urban aesthetic is a winning formula. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jun 14, 2022

    Blood Syndicate #2 does an excellent job of laying out how the main character's life has fallen apart since he left for the military. The art, particularly the coloring, is excellent, and the story feels authentically grounded. That said, the main character doesn't give readers a reason to get emotionally invested in his journey, and the dialog is a chore to get through in spots. Read Full Review

    This issue focuses almost entirely on Hannibal White's return from the Army and the deconstruction fatigue is real. I enjoy the art, though. Read Full Review

    Thorne has laid enough foundation that it's time to start making Blood Syndicate interesting or else readers might need to wait for Season 2 to be properly engaged. Read Full Review
