    AiPT! - David Brooke Dec 7, 2016

    If you love novels like Rebecca (or the adaptation by Hitchcock) you'll find it hard not to be wrapped up in its atmospheric and mystical glow. Though somewhat melodramatic when it comes to relationships, Deadman: Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love may be the sleeper hit of the year. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 7, 2016

    This issue reminds me of nothing more than classic Vertigo, and bear in mind that I'm old and freaky, so that's a compliment. Deadman: Dark Mansion Of Forbidden Love #2 is a remarkable achievement, returning classic Deadman after his New 52 revamp a few years ago, delivering on the difficult promise of gothic romance in the DCU, with beautiful art.

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Dec 8, 2016

    Deadman: Dark Mansion of Forbidden #2 is a suitably haunting follow-up to its flawless first issue, and Lan Medina and Jose Villarrubia give Deadman and Adelia some real chemistry in the first half with their play of red, black, and ghostly white in the dark environs of Glencourt Mansion. Splitting the book between Deadman and Berenice's narration continues to be a clever device from Sarah Vaughn as both characters do some soul searching.Deadman#2 is filled with thoughtfulness and reflection on love, death, and tragedy that erupts into a full-out horror comic by the time you turn the final page.

    DC Comics News - Steven Brown Dec 7, 2016

    Deadman #2 is a good book to read as a followup to its previous issue. Although not meant to be a standalone issue, if you've never read Deadman before, it's a great introduction to the series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Dec 7, 2016

    The plot thickens as Berenice learns more about Adelia's sordid past and why ghosts get stuck at Glencourt Manor. Perhaps it thickens, however, a bit too slowly. Could have stood this losing a buck off its cover price, while we're on the subject. Read Full Review
