    Big Comic Page - Dean Walsh Jul 1, 2014

    Doctor Spektor Master of the Occult is off to a great start in this new revival. It's dark and mysterious with great character moments and witty dialogue to invest your time into. Spektor and Abby have great personality and plenty of space to grow as individuals if while they remain separated. If you like Sci-Fi and supernatural themes then I would highly recommend picking up this title before the curtain calls on this magicians act. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Cole Kennedy Jul 2, 2014

    With the art team on top of their game, and a great script to start from, Doctor Spektor: Master Of The Occult continues the stories introduced in its premiere issue and creates even new layers to the story widening what can be accomplished in the series. Waid succeeds, as he normally does, in creating a great second installment that looks to only improve this series moving forward. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Jul 2, 2014

    Doctor Spektor is crazy and a little more out there this month, but the last few pages makes it worth it all. Waid has set up an interesting story that could have huge ramifications for the rest of the new Gold Key comics. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 2, 2014

    While it was kind of messy and chaotic in its own way, I rather enjoyed the opening issue of Doctor Spektor, especially since I had no real connection to the original and it was open as to what it could be. This issue takes a lot of what happened there and focuses on moving forward, but it has some good connective moments that keeps you touching upon all of it. Lenny has a small but critical role, Spektor's bigger ambitions slowly start to take shape as does his abilities and we see the reasons why both he and Abby are operating as they are after having The Experience. There's a lot of potential with what's here and while I'm wary of its connection with a book as vastly different as Magnus: Robot Fighter, I'm definitely interested to see how it all comes together, even if part of me would rather have this book stand alone for awhile on its own.

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Jul 1, 2014

    Doctor Spektor: Master of the Occult continues to be a must read comic as though it doesn't quite live up to the spectacular first issue it remains mysterious and intriguing, having a wonderful concept. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Lilith Wood Jul 7, 2014

    Despite the lackluster art and the feeling of being pummeled by plot points, I still want to know what happens next in Doctor Spektor. At this point the crazy new occurrences cancel each other out and the story feels like it's treading water. If Waid can handle his own tangled puzzle, he needs to give us the feeling that we're moving in a clear direction in future issues. Read Full Review
