Scarlet has declared war against those who would abuse their power against innocent people-and that war has shut down the city of Portland and brought the eyes of the world upon her. But as the revolution grows, will it slip through her fingers? Oh, and the president is on the phone. It's another blistering chapter of a world we may one day find ourselves in from the creators that brought you the  Eisner Award-winning Daredevil and Iron Man.

    This is a gutsy book. Bendis doesn't hold back. The art is very good too and well composed. Everyone should be reading this. It's a book that's being crafted at the highest level of quality. Read Full Review

    Maleev's art complements this story in both tone and style. I really enjoy the look of this series and the gritty, detailed art. There's a sense of immediacy to it that amplifies the drama. Read Full Review

    This series is deep in its thoughts and in making the reader aware of the world we are in and those amongst us who stand for what's right. I was worried issue 2 wouldn't deliver the same brilliance as issue 1. I was wrong. Both its art and story and what it is highlighting has continued to impress. I eagerly await Scarlet and her revolutionaries in issue 3. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Zarik Khan Sep 27, 2018

    The title character's characterization and art continue to match and even progress past where they were in the previous volume and keep this series passable. However, the bad continues to drag on this series; far from the story not moving forward, it feels like things have actually regressed from the original Marvel volume. A continued lack of development for supporting characters and very little exploration of the enemy, two elements that were vital to the previous run, make this book less and less interesting by the issue.

    For a series with such a potent premise, there remains very little worth discussing in Scarlet. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 27, 2018

    This book was supposed to be friendly to new readers but it hasn't been. The art remains enjoyable but the story and some of the dialogue is not. There is not enough context for new readers to enjoy the story and mythos. Scarlet comes off as selfish and she has done nothing in two issues to warrant her being a revolutionary leader. This issue makes Scarlet and the revolution look more like villains than social justice warriors that the book wants to them to be. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Sep 29, 2018

    This series is two issues in and I feel like I don't know anything. Scarlet really isn't coming alive as a main character; she's obnoxious and rude. That's the only take I have on her right now which makes the issue really boring. The art is good which does help but not enough. Read Full Review
