San Francisco, 1953. F.B.I. Agent Thomas Jennings has been in town all of forty-eight hours. He's been stabbed, chased, and betrayed, witnessing more horrors than he ever could have imagined. Now, in a desperate race to find two abandoned children in the vast jungle of the city, Jennings struggles to hold onto his own humanity, his own... innocence. Tough, relentless crime storytelling in the tradition of Jim Thompson and James Ellroy, from the team that brought you The Death of Zorro and The Lone Ranger.

    Seduction of the Innocent #2 is a solid entry in the crime noir genre with one of the strongest and most compelling protagonists in Agent Jennings, not to mention the overall dark tone of the book. It also has a mysterious and suspenseful plot with a number of intriguing supporting characters. The artwork is solid and even includes some innovative panel layouts to convey how certain characters are feeling. I definitely recommend this one, especially if you are a fan of crime noir.

    This is a really awesome, dark comic book. The series has a really good tone of mystery and suspense. The writing is amazing, with brilliant characterization. The artwork is solid, including some interesting designs with panel layouts. This is an overall great series and an effective throwback to an old but never tired genre of comic books.

    Big Comic Page - Rebecca Booth Dec 29, 2015

    The subtle touches in the characterisation of Jennings and his wife, with the very real emotional issues that both are dealing with as new parents, adds a realistic touch that elevates the otherwise simplistic story. The series has set up a dark, underlying thread-a controversial, historical reference is revealed in relation to the murderers at the end of the first comic-that will be hopefully be explored throughout later instalments. It is this provocative nature, in addition to the nostalgic artwork, that pays homage to crime and horror comics from the 1950s while simultaneously providing a sly wink to readers regarding historical arguments surrounding censorship and comics with Seduction of the Innocent's borrowed title.
