ONE YEAR LATER. With the world seemingly at peace, things seem pretty all right on 34RTH until a strange ship's arrival sends D4VE head-first into an existential crisis: an inconceivable blast from the past that threatens not only D4VE's dwindling relationship with 5COTTY, but all of robot-kind itself!

    There's something beautifully vulgar " emphasis on beautiful, double emphasis on vulgar " about D4VE. Though it might sometimes inch past the number of acceptable fart jokes per page, D4VE earns its potty mouth with strong characterization and a whole lot of heart. Read Full Review

    The illustrations and color that fill the splash pages and panels is vibrant. 3ARTH (or Earth) here in the future is a robotic, computerized smog filled cityscape and Valentine Ramon has done a fantastic job of giving robots a colorful life and keeping the readers very informed into how healthy the ecosystem and living conditions are. The characters are all very unique and interesting to look at and compare what personality and body type they're representative of human. The previous series did an amazing job of parodying humanity in subtle and not so subtle ways. This new chapter into the life of D4VE keeps up the comparisons, and with the big reveal on the final page, I simply cannot wait to see the juxtaposition to humans and just how insane things will get on 3ARTH.

    Multiversity Comics - Alice W. Castle Sep 17, 2015

    All in all, this is a fantastic return from Ferrier and Ramon to a world that continues to be unique even in this second helping. The charm of a world full of robots working medial jobs and having relationship problems and an asshole kid hasn't worn off at all and, in fact, continues to have material to mine as shown by this issue. This issue shows that "D4VE" was not just a one trick pony as speaks to a series that will continue to delight. And I can't wait to see where that last page reveal takes the series. Read Full Review

    D4VE2 # 1 is a good start to this new mini series. Easy to follow after the time gap of a year, and just as easy for a new reader to just pick up from here from the recap we get of past events. Great character development, humor, and twist that will really shake up the story. Read Full Review

    A great start of a new tale of 34RTH's most dysfunctional Jobsdamned hero, full of great character moments, jokes and a big start to the main adventure plot. This book is one for all mature (of age) fans looking for something fun and off the wall. Read Full Review

    Banana-pants mcfuck-buttons, D4VE is back! Not content to rest on the laurels of the much acclaimed first volume, D4VE2 #1 is a promising start and clever foray into new familiar problems with the same enthusiasm and care. Ferrier and Ramon turn the spotlight on change and on showing that youre never really done figuring things out. Its not about getting out of a rut or about glory days or even about renewed sense of self-worth through alien ass-kicking; its about what comes next. And masturbating robots. ZOMGLOL.

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Jason Graham Sep 18, 2015

    The positive aspects of D4VE2 #1 is for the best part the artwork it far outshines the story. The negatives of the book is the annoying vulgar humour which is even weirder with robots. I haven't read the first series so I'm giving the book the benefit of the doubt and the last page did throw a few questions out that I'm intrigued to see answered. It's just this issue reads like a bad drama with a few swear words thrown in to make it seem funny. Not a great start to a series for me. Read Full Review

    If you liked the first series, then I think it's safe to say you'll enjoy D4ve2. It doesn't have too many laughs, but there are some intriguing ideas coming into play. The first started off slow and I imagine this one will have that same feel. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Ross Sweeney Sep 15, 2015

    Still, as said, theres more than enough fun to be had here – and the fact that Ferrier resisted the temptation to go along the creature of the week route for the continuing adventures of 34rths mightiest hero, opting for something that promises to be far more interesting. Worth a look, but its not quite found its stride. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 16, 2015

    Maybe I'm blaming the editing too much, but since I find IDW's editing to be mostly terrible and then one of the best books of last year lands there and releases a new volume that's also now mostly terrible" well I find it hard not to believe that someone fucked with a working formula. And if it wasn't the editor than Ryan Ferrier couldn't tap into the same magic that made the first volume special and I honestly don't know which is worse. Read Full Review

    If there ever was a time I would say spend your 4 bucks elsewhere, this would be a GREAT time to do so. It's unimaginative, have a very scattered plot and juvenile to the point of ridiculousness. Read Full Review
