    Birthright is proving to be an incredibly strong series that could easily turn into the next runaway hit. It has elements of all sorts of genres that all readers should be able to enjoy and delve into. I had to keep reminding myself that this was only issue two because of how quickly Birthright captivated me. Say hello to your new favorite series. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Nov 5, 2014

    BIRTHRIGHT continues to impress. Williamson shows he isn't just a one-trick pony with genre writing as he steps away from horror and delivers a straight-forward book enveloped in fantasy. There are very few current books I'd call a must read, but this is easily one of them. BIRTHRIGHT not only has a great concept, but its executed masterfully. I highly recommend this series.

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Nov 10, 2014

    Birthright continues with a uniquely human spin on a tried and true fantasy element. It's dark at times but also emotional, as this family is turned upside down by the sudden reappearance of their young son whom they had presumed dead. Now their boy is a muscular warrior that has returned to our world literally haunted by a force of evil. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Nov 5, 2014

    In the end, Birthright #2 covers a decent amount of ground while cranking up the intensity only in the second issue. With a series like this it is smart to avoid teasing or dragging something on that would keep readers from feeling like this is a story to invest in. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Nov 4, 2014

    Birthright has barely started its journey and it's already proving to be action-packed and told in an interesting way. Not to mention the gorgeous artwork from Andrei and Adriano. Williamson continues to create these iconic characters that readers can't get enough of; add Mikey to that list. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Nov 4, 2014

    Birthright #2 is a good continuation of the story, just not exactly as great as the first issue. It doesn't move the story forward too much and the family aspect isn't nearly as strong as it was in the first issue. Nevertheless though, the writing and its ability to pull you in still remains strong, as does most of the artwork. It's still definitely worth your time, so go check it this out, along with the first if you haven't yet. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Alex K Nov 6, 2014

    Birthright is still young, and can probably be forgiven for some of its stumbling points. However, at two issues in I still haven't seen anything besides Bressan's art that makes it worth sticking around for. Read Full Review
