    James Bond 007: Hammerhead #2 is a slick spy thriller that could have had a host of problems. (The Bond franchise has had their fair share of problems over the decades.) Those problems are nowhere to be found in this issue. In fact, for those looking for a more traditional Bond story and feeling, this is the series for you. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - John Newby Nov 10, 2016

    I would like to say that James Bond: Hammerhead #2 is a fun continuation of what is turning out to be a solid series, but I dont know if fun is the correct word. Dont get me wrong, Hammerhead is super enjoyable. Its just hard to call something fun when Bond is roaming around shooting folks in the head. Turns out, hes kind of a brutal sumbitch. Despite not being fun per se, Hammerhead #2 is a solid second issue. This search for The Kraken is an intriguing story, and hopefully the big baddies reveal doesnt disappoint. Until The Kraken shows up, we can kick back and enjoy Bonds continuing adventures in murder and romance. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 9, 2016

    The second installment of the Hammerhead arc takes what we got from the first and bumps it up nicely without going so far overboard. Everything here feels like a proper Bond story with the writing and visual design that you can easily see it coming to life on the screen. There's uncertainty as to the bigger story at the moment as well, but that's also a familiar trait of the films as there are bound to be twists and turns ahead. I was wary going into a new miniseries like this at the same time as the other book was running, but I think the property is going to make out for the best with a range of writers and artists bringing it to life throughout the year in smaller self-contained miniseries bursts like this. And anyone else is going to have some big shoes to step into after Diggle and Casalanguida are done with their arc. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Richard Wanderman Jr. Oct 30, 2016

    I like this title, and where it is going. It makes you feel like you are watching the movie unfold before you. You will laugh, you will cheer, you might even send our friend James a knowing wink. One thing is for certain, you will want to be back in your seat for Issue #3. Read Full Review

    Overall, I enjoyed the issue and it has definitely ramped up my interest in seeing what happens next. I was pleasantly surprised with how good the issue was and if you did pick up the first issue, I'm sure you will enjoy this one more, so get down to your local comic shop and check it out for yourself" Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Ray W Nov 9, 2016

    James Bond: Hammerhead 2 is a solid issue, but with this being only issue two in the story, I did want more from it. The writing and the art is terrific, but the colors be a bit brighter. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 12, 2016

    This was a really enjoyable issue if you are a fan of James Bond. If you like the Fleming books it has what made those books popular, if you like the movies it has great action and some good wordplay. Basically, this comic is all the best parts of a Fleming book accompanied with visuals that only a comic can provide. The only problem I can really point to is the same problem every action movie has with stupid mooks. So if you like the Bond movies or the Fleming books, or both pick up this comic. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 8, 2016

    This second issue reminds us one of the reasons Bond is so damn good at what he does is because he cleans up real well. Diggle continues to capture facets of the character that will satiate your desire for a James Bond movie. Read Full Review
