Hold the cover of DEADMAN #2 up to the light and the danger that was invisible seconds before will be revealed! Now, any lingering doubt that Deadman was deliberately murdered in cold blood, and not as a test for the Hook to join the League of Assassins, is put to rest once and for all!

    Action and drama team up with outstanding visuals that range from the real to the supernatural. Deadman's journey becomes stranger as three of DC's inhuman characters intrude on his trek. Read Full Review

    The beautiful art by the legendary Neal Adams is a treat. The story while seemingly disjointed reflects an earlier style that is still enjoyable if only slightly troubling at points. There is a lot of promise in what comes next and there's certainly the feeling that ANYTHING could happen. No telegraphing here, Adams is in complete control. Read Full Review

    This is one for Adams fans. If you enjoyed the first issue, the second continues the journey Adams has crafted and the art shows off why he's considered one of the best. Read Full Review

    Some intense spectral battles and a devastating beatdown on the grounds of a circus gives way to a meeting of some of the DCU's most famous folks from the afterlife. The emotion is keyed really high in this comic, which might turn some people off. But if you can stand the dizzying effect of these high-flying feelings, then you might find this trapeze act to your liking. Read Full Review

    Wow. I didnt expect this issue to be so action-packed, but it really was. I think any fan of Deadman will want to see exactly how he would exact revenge on his killer. And, you get to see that very thing happen in this issue. Theres also a lot more information that you can gather from the dimension Deadman exists in from this issue to. Phantom Stranger has always been a mysterious character to me, so I was happy to see him make an appearance. I am interested to see what happens in issue 3 now with an ending like that. Pick up this issue today at your local comic store. Read Full Review

    Adams has gotten my attention with this story and even more so with the supporting cast of characters that he has added to Boston Brand. Read Full Review

    Modern printing technology has provided Adams the means to create mood and atmosphere much more easily, tools he uses to a great degree. I wouldn't say he over-uses them, but he's clearly having fun. It is my hope he does not fall into the same trap George Lucas did when he discovered digital graphics. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Dec 6, 2017

    More so than anything else, the current Deadman series is disappointing. We had gotten off to a shaky, but alright start, but now the story just isn't working. The artwork is solid, but it's not enough to redeem the run. Read Full Review

    The second issue of Neal Adams' latest writer-artist outing has more of a story than the dreadful first issue, but it suffers from a serious execution problem. Read Full Review
