    But Why Tho? - Carrie McClain Jul 5, 2022

    Strong continuity and smart writing greets readers in Nubia: Queen of the Amazons #2. Nubia shows us once again that shes a character that wont go down easy in a fight and her allies and convictions move her and us along for the ride. The pacing of this issue feels a tiny bit rushed but still kept me invested to the last page. It's handling by a Black woman writer like Williams is a pretty solid choice that continues to ground her as a character worth looking forward to at the comic book store. Read Full Review

    Nubia: Queen of the Amazons #2 drops hints and pieces about what's happening but does an incomplete job that readers are left to assemble the puzzle without the corners or edge pieces. The art is just okay, and Nubia's pre-Amazon history is good world-building, but the main plot hasn't come together when the story is already half over. Read Full Review
