    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 5, 2020

    This is a good second issue and it's also an improvement on the first issue. This is a great example of how you should always give comics a two-issue chance. I was left wanting with the first issue, but now I'm beginning to see how all these horrific delights will bear fruit. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 5, 2020

    Kelley Jones delivers some beautiful and dark imagery throughout this issue. There are some definite moments of beauty mixed with the macabre and all of it works. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 5, 2020

    It's a slower burn than the other Hill House books, but it's a very intriguing one that seems to be building to something special. The Sea Dogs backup, dealing with the aftermath of a murder, continues to slowly chug along but seems no closer to delivering the big scares it promised. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Feb 17, 2020

    Daphne Byrne will get under your skin in the best possible way. It's a horror that creeps up on you, sending a shiver up your spine with each turn of the page. This young girl is getting pulled into the depths and the only one there to help her is pushing her head down below the surface. Read Full Review

    While I'm pulled into this story for its premise,Daphne Byrne #2'sother elements are distracting. That said, this isn't a bad issue and I can definitely see future issues finding more of their footing as readers get more background information. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Feb 5, 2020

    I did not like the first issue and I did not like this one, but just like the first issue, there were a few things that I did like. Still, the story just doesn't really grab my interest and I hope it gets better from here. For the art, at points, it's really good and at other points not so much. Read Full Review
