John Wick's origin story continues! In the underworld of El Paso, Texas, a familiar face introduces an ex-con named John Wick to the local branch of the mysterious Continental Hotel, a neutral zone where professional killers spend their down time. But can John adhere to the rules of the Continental? Or will his search for vengeance destroy his chances for a peaceful life? Also... does John Wick actually have...a cat?

    Overall. A very enjoyable second issue that builds off of the mythology of the two films and glimpses John Wick's murky past. And yes he does seem rather friendlywith a cat. Read Full Review

    John Wick #2 is an improvement over the premier issue, but still nothing special. The story has been done before. Revenge on old foes, just insert John Wick as the protagonist. I would like to see something injected into the story to add another level of excitement and danger. I thought we might see that after the end of John Wick #1. By the way, where is that blonde girl anyway? Hopefully she reappears in issue #3. Read Full Review

    "John Wick" lacks the style that makes the source material so immediately engaging. Without the style, it's just a functional and somewhat generic comic book. Read Full Review

    Moves the overall plot along, but if this were the first comic I picked up, it wouldn't entice me to read the next one. Read Full Review

  • 4.0 - Charlie Ridgely Apr 18, 2018

    Somehow, everything great about the first 12 pages completely disappears when John steps outside. The story is convoluted, the lines are messy, the art comes across as incredibly lazy -- it's a vastly different comic. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Sam King Apr 18, 2018

    Check this one out if you simply have to for peace of mind. If you don't, just wait for the trade or maybe even see if your local library is willing to get it when it eventually comes out and see if it improves over the course of its run. This isn't one I'd keep on a pull list and anxiously anticipate. It needs serious improvement. Read Full Review
