    Sometimes it looks like Hill and Rodriguez are like Niles and Templesmith, a storytelling team that has a unique style together. Read Full Review

    Issue one was my favourite so far but issue two deserves a solid 4 stars. Read Full Review

    This one was a bit of a letdown. While not a complete bust, Tales from the Darkside #2 didn't knock my socks off the way the inaugural issue did. I have confidence in this creative team, so I'm sure they'll turn this ship around (or at least steer it in the right direction). Maybe with Hill and Rodriguez I just set my standards too high.

    But considering how good the first issue was, this one still feels like a bit of a let down. Let's hope all the foundation work the creative team did allows them to really cut loose in the latter half of the story. Read Full Review

    Although I feel this book is a solid 3, I will look into the next issue to see how Hill will deliver. While this book did not succeed, Hill does have a great reputation as a writer for completing an idea. Read Full Review
