    Abit more to the story, introducing new characters, and giving us some baddiegoodness, but it worked all through-out.I never felt bored, and this issue just makes me want to know more aboutthe secret society's plan for Pandora's Box, and who Pandora will find tofinally open the box. Solid issue, can'twait for the next Read Full Review

    The one problem I still do find is what part the evils from the box really play in all of this. Yes we know that they corrupted humanity and still do, but as individuals what are they doing that is affecting this war right now. All we see from them is concern that Pandora wants to put them back in the box Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 31, 2013

    As for Pandora herself, the book still suffers from the fairly serious flaw that she isn't a very compelling protagonist. In part, the problem stems from her immortality. There's little sense of personal danger to Pandora's quest because she can't be harmed anymore than her old buddy Savage can. The other problem is that it's still not very clear what shape this book will take beyond the scope of Trinity War. The issue is book-ended by segments featuring government agents who look to serve as recurring antagonists. Unfortunately, these characters are the clear weak links in this issue, as they seem to exist to lob exposition and make way for frequent editor's captions more than anything else. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Jeff Hill Aug 1, 2013

    So a pretty straight-forward issue, all in all. But a good read nonetheless. This book might be moving a little too slow for some readers, but I think the footing and the pacing are perfect for such a character. It's being drug out enough to keep up with the events of the rest of the other important DC books, but not enough to be a repetitive or daunting read. I'm curious to see just how long this title will last after Trinity War ends, but in the meantime, I'll anxiously await each and every issue. Read Full Review

    If you want to see more members of the Secret Society and learn a little more about Pandora's powers then this should interest you. It's a better illustrated and far less exposition heavy installment, but at the end of the day I just don't find Pandora all that interesting so I have a hard time giving it too high of a score.

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jul 31, 2013

    The art is by Daniel Sampere and he does an alright job. It's rather average looking overall when it comes to superhero work (it's not bad, but it's not great either), but he draws some great looking action. While it takes up most of the book and can like padding, Pandora vs. the Secret Society members was a treat to watch, especially since she is able to take about every blow they can give and much more.

    For all the confusion and tragic overabundance of Signalman, this is still a good book. Flawed, but good. And thats really all you can say about it. Hopefully, future issues will be a bit stronger. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - mahargen Jul 31, 2013

    I have no idea if this is a limited or an ongoing series. I would assume it is going to be ongoing since there is nothing on the cover to indicate a specific number of issues. I think I would prefer this story to be a limited series, just to avoid dragging out the reveals. I want to see Pandora’s involvement in the Trinity War, which will be completed next month. Where does the title go from there? I’m hoping we get some sort of resolution in the core Trinity War titles to Pandora’s Box, and the plot thread isn’t stretched out in this title too long.

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Jul 31, 2013

    For some reason, a 3 star review, on this site, is scene as "the reviewer hated it!" I'll be very clear. I like this series, and I liked this particular issue. It has its ups and downs, sure, but it's not bad. I still recommend picking this up. I had high expectations for the book because Trinity War has been a blast, I've really been enjoying Ray Fawkes writing, and the tie in issues to Trinity War have been great as well, especially CONSTANTINE, but this one fell a tad flat. If you've been enjoying Trinity War or you enjoyed the first issue of this series, give this book a read. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Jul 31, 2013

    Trinity of Sin: Pandora #2, despite the "Trinity War" tie-in banners, is scarcely essential reading for current DC fans. The marriage of crime scene drama and supernatural showdowns is not a comfortable one here, and there is nowhere near enough to keep readers hooked. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Aug 1, 2013

    "Trinity of Sin: Pandora" #2 is an average comic book all the way around. It doesn't add much to the "Trinity War" story despite the logo on the cover and it certainly isn't going to stick with me until the next issue. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Aug 1, 2013

    I usually really like Ray Fawkes. His wok onJustice League Darkwith Jeff Lemire has been incredible. ButTrinity of Sin: Pandora gets two strikes for this second issue. There is nothing of value in this comic book because it's structured so poorly. All the relevant information going into this second issue is covered in another series, and all the new information we're given throughout these pages is either only applicable to Pandora herself, or is just boring. Pandora fights against the Secret Society, but we already knew that. She's immortal, but she's not a metahuman by contextual standards in the ‘New 52′, but we already knew that. She's trying to get the golden skull to open back up, but we already knew that. I just can't get over how uselessPandora #2 truly is. Don't buy it; don't waste your money. Read Full Review
