    The art on this is just amazing. Having Denys Cowan pencil and having Bill Sienkiewicz on the inks is absolutely amazing. The art really is a gift. The whole book is actually. You can't ask for much better than this. Recommended. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Jan 21, 2020

    The Question: The Deaths of Vic Sage hasnt gotten much fanfare from DC Comics, and thats a real surprise. Perhaps its because its a Black Label book, or perhaps its because The Question isnt one of their bestselling characters, but whatever the reason it likely means that many readers are missing out on a hidden gem from their catalog. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    The Daily Fandom - Kyle Scher Jan 20, 2020

    The Question: The Deaths of Vic Sage #2 is not as strong as its opening issue was but its damn good. A western is kind of perfect for The Question because of the inherent man with no name mystery that surrounds Vic. See you next time for more Vic but this time in 1941. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 15, 2020

    I was a little unsure of this series from the first issue but simply loved this second issue. The western setting, the nature of good and evil, and the idea of The Question fighting this battle in the past and present is a fascinating one. The art is dark and absorbing, telling the tale in smaller moments and big montage moments perfectly well. If you're interested in the battle of good and evil, you won't want to miss this.

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Jan 15, 2020

    This is the series to read. If the writing can accomplish what it has done steadily for two issues and the art can stay at the level it's at, this is going to be one of the great ones. Two straight issues have been able to explore two different characters’ duality while weaving an inventive story around them. I haven’t read many comics that have done this and don’t know of any others doing it now. If you’re a fan of cerebral comics, this is the one to pick up. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jan 15, 2020

    If you liked the first issue's tone, expect to be very satisfied with The Question: The Deaths of Vic Sage #2 " but if those elements took away from your enjoyment, the problem is doubled in this issue. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jan 15, 2020

    Jeff Lemire, Denys Cowan, Bill Sienkiewicz, and Chris Sotomayor use the creative freedom of the Black Label imprint to tell what is a damn fine dark Western with some mystical elements. They show how shitty the 1880s were with a loose, gruesome approach to the violence instead of something more stylized. In the bigger picture of the miniseries, it digs into Charlie/Vic/The Question's identity a little bit more setting upcoming ideas and revelations as Lemire and Cowan continues to jump eras in both plot and visuals.

    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux Jan 16, 2020

    Ultimately, while not as specific to my tastes as the first issue, this is another stellar entry. It's a heavy diversion from the last and looks to be so again in the next. Cowan and Sienkiewicz manage to make a tough read even tougher with their raw and unfiltered art. This is a great comic, unlike almost any other on the stands right now. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Kevin Rossi Jan 19, 2020

    I am interested to see where the series goes. The one big takeaway from issue #2 is that Vic now has his mission: kill the man with a thousand faces. Other than that the issue was just good ol wild west violence which is always fun. Pick up a copy at your local comic book shop or wherever you get your comics. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jan 15, 2020

    So while I felt the full extra size story of The Question: The Deaths of Vic Sage #2 was a little thin it still provides a solid read. It has some emotional moments while showing just how bad the world can get. I will be interested to see how the next issue picks up the narrative and where the creative team takes it from here.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 15, 2020

    Denys Cowan, Bill Sienkiewicz, and Chris Sotomayor really steer this issue. They set the tone for what should be a great series. If you can't enjoy the story, at least we have a great artbook. And also, out of all the names Vic Sage could have made for himself “living in the past” he chooses Victor Szasz? Clearly, the man has never seen Back to the Future. Read Full Review

    This miniseries, while a little slow, is proving to be an emotional and compelling character study. Read Full Review
