After their attempt to join the Justice League goes horrendously wrong, Warlord and Starman are on the run from the law and the forces of the Fourth World! In their wake they have left behind both a murder and the ongoing mystery of Atlas the Great and his connection to the cosmic powers of the DC Universe. But don't fret, Lady Cop is on the case, and she won't rest until it's solved. But little does she know, a malevolent corporation has a connection to it all and they're willing to kill to keep their secrets safe. After all, nobody messes with the Green Team!

    DC Comics' Danger Street lures you in with the madness of its plot. But you stick around because of the wonderfully human and heartbreaking characters. King, Fornes, Stewart, and Cowles are creating a work that is somehow electrifying and deeply compassionate at the same time. There's a gorgeous balance that this series strikes. It's easily one of the best books on the shelves. Read Full Review

    Danger Street is an excellent social commentary on people doing their best and trying to keep their heads above water. It's a profoundly realistic story while playing with superheroes and supervillains in creative ways. Danger Street #2 continues to show with the best creators literally any hero of any renown can hit you in the feels and make you think about life. Read Full Review

    Perhaps the single most impressive element in Danger Street remains how dexterously it balances a set of 13 protagonists, with each character or small ensemble playing into the second issue in a manner that continues their own plots while weaving them more clearly into others. It's a striking feat of scripting. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 11, 2023

    Danger Street #2 is a vast improvement on the first issue. It delivers the “humanity” of the characters that makes me connect to them in some way. By showing their grief, the team has me now caring about the actions each character takes going forward. It delivers a reason I should care about all of that. It's no longer a story of rich brats and screw-up heroes but now one of revenge and redemption driven by mourning. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jan 15, 2023

    This isn't my favorite comic right now, but Fornes' layouts and use of close-up's in emotional scenes are really effective, and I continue to be a sucker for books that dig deeper into the motivations of B and C list characters. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 13, 2023

    There are parts of this story that are incredibly compelling, and others eye-rollingly goofy, but the overall presentation is good, even with the overwhelmingly broody tone. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Jan 10, 2023

    Danger Street #2 frustratingly continues to try to wring a Watchmen-style story with DCs most obscure characters. Warlord is nothing like the Travis Morgan of the past, hes more a shell of a character now than the great character he once was. Its a story that wanders from subplot to subplot, and hopefully when the subplots and characters come together, the series will improve. Read Full Review
