As Etrigan and Jason Blood adapt to their new forms in the hell zone engulfing Death Valley, they find themselves in the presence of a seemingly psychic child, otherwise unaffected by the nuclear hell blast. But before they can address the mystery of this child, they must fight their way to an old companion, Madame Xanadu, who is trapped in a roadside hotel of hell. As hell continues to spew into Earth, Blood must try and contain an unhinged Etrigan, capable of harming everyone around them, including his companions.

    This six-issue mini series holds supreme promise. With Etrigan so prevalent and Blood hating that fact, this isn't a run you want to miss out on. The first issue was released in November, with the second coming out December 27th. Take the Christmas money you were given in lieu of a present, and go buy a copy or two for you and a friend.

    The Demon: Hell is Earth is definitely delighting in its second installment across the board. The creative team is firing on all cylinders and giving it a chance to grow and breathe right without rushing into things. This installment keeps things a bit more focused on our core group without other distractions for the most part and that leads Jason and Etrigan come across as more defined before bringing in the little girl more prominently as well as Xanadu. It's a great looking book and I'm excited to see what's next to see it build into something bigger that as a whole could be a really strong work. Read Full Review

    A character we having seen in a while steps into this series, someone who has a deep connection to Jason Blood...and therefore to Etrigan as well. The terrific artwork takes this series to a new level, though I still wouldn't recommend it to people that don't really like Etrigan. For the rest of us that like the Demon, this mini-series may support your reasons! Read Full Review

    While I don't think it's going to be winning any Eisners, The Demon is a damn good time and a hell of a lot of fun. It's a good read for old and new fans of Etrigan alike. Read Full Review

    Demon: Hell is Earth #2 is a fun continuation to the initial book. Etrigan and Jason have a lot of good moments. The art is great. The plot isnt new, but its fun. It may not quite be as good as #1, but it is easily recommendable all the same. Give this one a read. Read Full Review

    The Demon: Hell is Earth brings monsters, mayhem, and madness to the DC Universe. It's a reminder that there's a dark underbelly full of fire and brimstone lurking just beneath the surface of this world. Has Etrigan ever met Hellboy? I feel like they'd have a lot to talk about.

    Can the ghostly Jason Blood figure out how to stop the slow expansion of Hell throughout the southwest before his fraying leash on Etrigan gives way? Can he and Xanadu find a way to stop this spread of Hell on Earth? There is only one way to find out. Keep on reading. Read Full Review

    The reunion of the old Demon Knights allies, now bitter rivals, is going to drive a lot of the conflict in the series, although the cliffhanger falls a bit flat because we know it won't stick. Read Full Review

    While stunning artwork and both dramatic and humorous writing, a lack of a synopsis at the beginning of the issue or dialogue that picks up from the first book leaves you confused. Read Full Review
