Nancy's returned to her hometown of Bayport to sniff out the sender of an ominous letter that may have to do with her mother's death seven years ago. Re-teaming with her childhood crime solving team -- Bess, George, and The Hardy Boys -- Nancy is determined to get to the bottom of things. But she hasn't even been back in town a day, and someone's already tried to kill them once. Can they follow the clues in time to stop it from happening again? This modern take on the classic mystery icon continues from KELLY THOMPSON (Hawkeye, Star Wars, Rogue & Gambit) and JENN ST-ONGE (Giant Days, The Misfits)!

    The Artwork by Jen St-ongecontinues to do some really nice things. I loved the drawings of Nancy and the gang when they were kids exploring the same caves and the facial expressions are really well drawn. There is kind of a Japanese influence to the drawing with the use of rather large eyes. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Jaimee Nadzan Jul 11, 2018

    Thompson continues to build on the original storyline, while adding new elements to the mystery. The introduction of the new character, Pete, complicates the story, raising more questions for future issues. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 7, 2018

    Nancy Drew #2 is another delightful and engaging issue of this reimagining of the mystery-solving girl and her team. The characters are lovable, the plot is interesting, and the art is great. This one earns another recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Brax Jul 13, 2018

    Kelly Thompson (and Co.'s) version of Nancy Drew will likely be the definitive version of this character for a generation or more. The story is smart and so is the art. Nancy Drew #2 has a big heart and a good sense of humor " some qualities that are not easy to achieve in a moment where cynicism reigns supreme. Getting on board here at issue #2 is no disadvantage to readers, but with characters as classic as Nancy Drew, in the hands of these capable creators, it might not hurt to follow the series for every clue you can get. 4/5.

    If this series can keep it up, it will easily be one of the spunkiest, most enjoyable indie comics out today. Read Full Review

    If you liked the first issue, you'll like this one as well! I wasn't a huge fan of one plot point, but overall the quality level both in strengths and weaknesses are the same as the first issue, so the series is continuing with a good foot forward. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Tom Zimm Jul 11, 2018

    The second installment of this book continues to shine due to the interesting and unique nature of Nancy Drew as a character. In addition, her supporting cast all are given important roles and minor story arcs of their own. The dialogue is sharp and interesting while the main point of the story is solidly grounded in the Nancy Drew lore developed in the books near a century ago. I highly recommend this book to readers looking for socially relevant character work minus superhero shenanigans. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Nathan Braudrick Jul 16, 2018

    Once again, I'm left wondering who this comic run of Nancy Drew is for. I was hoping the mystery would sink its teeth into me in this issue, but there really is nothing here to drum up any interest. It seems that the entire existence of a mystery is in place as an excuse to consistently remind us all of how hip and millennial these new renditions of classic characters are. It does a great job of highlighting the creator's overly-transparent social views, but so far… that's about it. Read Full Review

    I find it bowering.

    Cover - The variant. Nice but not related. 1/2
    Writing - This is a story for kids. And I too grown-up to be interested. Shame because she tend to give a real personality to the supporting cast. 1.5/3
    Arts - Love the art, simple & funny. I like the layout even if their is a lack of background. In the cave I understand, but come one not in the library. 2.5/3
    Feeling - Not interested. 0/2
