Ever since he died and became Deadman, Boston Brand has served the deity known as Rama Kushna, inhabiting bodies to complete missions that she dictates. But for the first time, Deadman may have a clue how to gain some control over his "life." But the cost may be the souls of the bodies he inhabits!

    Overall, this is one of the most brilliantly scripted comics I've seen out of The New 52, in the same ranking as books like Action Comics and Batman. This is also one of the most character focused, character developing and character driven issues of any books from The Edge and The Dark groups of titles. The art could use a little improvement, but I'm hoping Bernard Chang will step it up for each issue forward, as he has since #1. Read Full Review

    If anything, the issue's undeniable trump card is the gorgeous cover by the wonderful Ryan Sook. The man can't be beat. Read Full Review

    "DC Universe Presents" #2 carries on from the comic's strong debut; we've had a lot of Deadman lately between "Brightest Day" and "Justice League Dark," but of all his various appearances, I feel that "DC Universe Presents" has delivered the best Deadman material to date. If you've never read a comic with him before, this is an excellent place to begin. Read Full Review

    Too much ethereal conversation, not enough body-snatching action. We need less chit-chat about the purpose of life, and more purposeful living. Read Full Review

    Overall, I am enjoying this series and story. DC Universe Presents: Deadman #2 gives us an interesting look into Gotham's super-natural society. It's a fun book and the story has been pretty interesting. I was confused about Deadman's abilities and non-abilities though, and I felt like that this book wasn't new reader friendly at all. I recommend this book, and I also recommend jumping into people's bodies and controlling them. Read Full Review
