    Excellent use of out-of-continuity characters and situations for a lovely comic book that should appeal to younger audiences. Read Full Review

    Wow I love Mystik U, can I just start off by saying that? I love watching these young adults learn how to use their unique powers. I also love that classic and new characters are mingling together in this inventive and magical new tale. Read Full Review

    Here's hoping that when this limited series is over, there is more room in the DCU for more wonderful character-based stories like this. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Amy Ziegfeld Jan 31, 2018

    Mystik U #2 is a great coming-of-age story for readers of all ages, with an authentic voice that never feels condescending. The art complements and enhances that story, and makes this book something truly special. Read Full Review

    Buy, as this book soars between the college campus setting, complex characters, and the very involved story. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Batmanaruto Feb 1, 2018

    In conclusion, the shifted focus off of the Malevolence to me was a good idea, as I never really felt that the idea was strong or really that intriguing. Instead if the book decided to focus on the students at Mystik U and their daily lives it would make for a better series in my opinion. The creative team have impressed me thus far with this series so maybe the Malevolence can be presented in an interesting way. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jan 31, 2018

    Mike Norton's art is fantastic, slightly darker than what he normally does but with the same great character work. If I have one complaint, it's the slightly cheap cliffhanger, but so far, this is one of the most enjoyable and unique books DC has put out in a while. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - amitnmalaviya Feb 6, 2018

    This second issue of Mystik U is a solid, if somewhat predictable, installment. The characters and their relationships are at the core of this book, and Kwitney manages to write them wonderfully and realistically. This book continues to feel more like a special event than just a mere mini-series, and itll be exciting to see just how all of this plays out, and who the Malevolence may end up being.

    Comic Crusaders - Jennifer DeRoss Feb 1, 2018

    Overall, this very serious lack of enthusiastic consent drags down an issue that would otherwise be excellent. Fans of Zatanna, or even just fans of the magical side of DC will want to pick it up regardless. These kids have a lot to learn and it should be fun watching them continue to embrace their differences and battle the big bad together at the end. Read Full Review

    GWW - Christopher Rodriguez Jan 30, 2018

    This series has been a lot of fun and looks amazing. It has a few bumps in the road, but I'm enjoying it quite a bit. The comic features a great cast of characters but Zatanna shines in this issue. This was a much stronger second issue in my opinion. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 31, 2018

    I continue liking what Alisa Kwitney is giving us here even though this issue felt a bit more pieced together and rushed than the first.  If you like good character work and art with a magical twist, this book is something you should check out. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Feb 1, 2018

    Mystik U wants to be Harry Potter like nothing has ever been Harry Potter before. And I'm not charmed by its attempts to re-envision DC's magical heroes and heroines as teens at a magic academy. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 2, 2018

    The second storyline is the will-they-won't-they back-and-fourth between Zatanna and bad boy Sebastian Faust which leads directly into a cliffhanger as their moment of passion has consequences. For fans. Read Full Review

    The first one look like a little book or little Graphic novel. This one at my surprise look like a usual comics.
    Even if the one was publish in December, we go back in the story pretty easily.
    Zatana give us a pretty help to have the need to go further. For now Malevolence is here but we still have doubt on is real identity.
    Plop is too obvious & will not have the emotional effect the writer want to give us, I think.
    Zee does mistake on mistake & even his a little mean sometime.
    I wonder how all of this will finish.

    Cover - Nicely done & related to the story inside 2/2
    Writing - It's well done, but I have always a sentiment that leave me with a bitter taste. I sense the Bee sisterhood to be a lost of more
