    I love the almost random use of the Manhunters towards the end of the story. This miniseries is a big DC playground. Read Full Review

    Tomasi makes this just a fun read all around, dropping little easter eggs along the way. We get to see Superman's Cape, Wonder Woman's Sheild, Green Arrow's quiver and bow, plus Harley Quinn's mallet. Along with that, he toys around with the Manhunters and some New Gods tie-ins as well. While none of these teases pan out in this issue, it will be fun to see if future writers take advantage of these threads. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Feb 22, 2017

    Kamandi continues cruising through post-apocalyptic America, encountering lots of strange beasts and fantastic devices that will probably be familiar to a lot of readers. The artwork and composition by Neal Adams is impeccable, the story is rollicking and energetic, and the whole package is so lively you won't be able to catch your breath. Kamandi gets no respite, and neither should we! Read Full Review

    The Kamandi Challenge #2 is a hard book to review in a way, as I've wound up evaluating the conceptual rewards of the book rather than the issue itself. But this is an issue with different aim than most books. The process IS the point in many ways here, and what matters is how inventive and bold the creators can be in kicking the ball down the field. In that regard, writer Peter J. Tomasi and artist Neal Adams do an admirable job. Read Full Review

    The Kamanda Challenge is an intriguing series with a compelling premise that should get lovers of dynamic ever changing stories ramped up every issue. This installment isn't quite as strong as the first issue, but its creators are taking chances which is hard to fault. This is pulp comics that's daring, original, and fun. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 24, 2017

    Maybe it's the gimmick, maybe it's the clear joy with which the creative teams are playing with these characters, but ever page of this issue made me happy. The Kamandi Challenge #2 is clever, fun and energetic, with excellent art across the board and great skill in resolving and setting up new cliffhanger threads. Read Full Review
