    In its second issue, Damage continues to be one of the bigger surprise stories out of DC this year. Read Full Review

    DAMAGE #2 raises the bar left by the previous issue. It gives us enough sense of the character but keeps us wanting more. The action is fun and brutal with the Suicide Squad's involvement. The art is amazing and worth seeing for yourself! Read Full Review

    DC isnt letting up on the characters push though with another top tier guest star set for next issue. That encounter should make for a fun third issue. The future looks bright for Damage. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Feb 26, 2018

    The best thing to do here is to just take Damage for what he is and enjoy that. This issue was well written and drawn excellently. DC is trying to make Damage a different hero, and in time he will get there, but until then, this is a fun book that should entertain anyone with a sense of adventure. Read Full Review

    If you are still on the fence about Damage, then I would say give it a shot. No matter what other readers may say about familiarity, that doesn't change the fact that this is a new kind of character for the DC Universe. It was only a matter of time before they had to deal with this consequence of creation. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Jay Feb 25, 2018

    In spite of small setbacks, this issue was strong and kept the mystery man angle up; it holds the reader as much as the action. The art is strong and the writing is tight, albeit a little fast in a few places. The cover is awesome and doesnt give too much of the internal plot away. Read Full Review

    Another good installment, but it makes you want more. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Feb 20, 2018

    The art is extremely strong but the story is more or less paper thin here. Ethan and Jonas have potential as characters and as rivals but the driving force may be the action. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Feb 21, 2018

    With Damage, the creators came out of the gate swinging hard and fast, and now, in Issue #2, as the story is beginning to progress, I am unsure if the concept works as well as I had initially thought. The majority of this book moves at a pace that is, perhaps, unfitting for the title character, but there is still the potential for Damage to be a great series Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Feb 21, 2018

    Damage #2 is a little bit of a mixed bag story wise this month, failing to deliver yet on a few of the questions raised in issue one about this new character, and meandering a bit in the middle of the book.  However, the art is certainly a huge draw and adds to the story being told in a way I'm on board with right now.  I just hope for some more character development next month.

    I do enjoy the snarky rivalry between Amanda Waller and Colonel Jonas, but two issues in, the title character is still the least interesting part. The art is great, but with Daniel leaving after one arc, this title's future is iffy. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 27, 2018

    Dmage is by no means a bad book as I think it has the potential to be a pretty good book. But it faces the problem that most "brick" characters do in that they really need to be humanized and have a good supporting cast to work with. Damage is missing those elements right now and is focusing more on the solitary aspect of the character(s) as well as bringing in the guest star side with the Suicide Squad and then Wonder Woman at the end.

    This book might be worth checking out for the artwork alone. But if Daniel decides to leave this title, there won't be a lot left to recommend. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alan Buxbaum Feb 26, 2018

    "Damage" #2 is a solid start, but it's just too early to tell. Hopefully Daniel and Venditti will develop it and take it to a place far enough away from its predecessors so as to make a name for itself. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Feb 21, 2018

    Damage isn't a bad comic book by any means. It's safe though, it's playing to its strengths and hell, maybe more comics should do that. But with so many superhero comics and new comics out each week, playing it safe doesn't mean it's innovating or intriguing. I worry that with so many other amazing comics to pick from, that Damage might end up feeling too familiar and become something easily passed on. Which is a shame, the gimmick has legs, it just needs some more time to stretch them. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Feb 6, 2018

    Damage #2 is an underwhelming read. Elvis Avery receives little characterization compared to the likes of Silencer or Sideways in their respective opening issues. Daniels artwork is solid, and the Suicide Squad fight is enjoyable. I cant recommend this comic, but I cant tell you to avoid it either. If what I explained sounded cool to you, then feel free to try it. However, it is far from required reading. Read Full Review
