    Comic Crusaders - David Howard Dec 12, 2018

    Bitter Root #2 is an impressive book with a unique art style that evokes the Harlem renaissance. Sanford Greene's (Power Man and Iron Fist) art is a unique combination of old and new urban styles with a color palette that conveys the horror of the Jinoo and the warmth of the Sangerye family. This combination of style and color has morphed into something new and fresh, something I definitely want to see more of. As I stated above; Walker, Brown, and Sandford have created something that transcends the comic book genre as this book spoke to something inside of me that has nothing to do with heroes and monsters. While it was entertaining as a work of comic book fiction, the message and tone of the book were a tonic for my soul. I was honored to be able to read this book and, to their credit, the team behind Bitter Root have left me uplifted as a result. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Dec 11, 2018

    Bitter Root #2 delivers an exciting read and makes this series a must-read for me. I have some slight hang-upsstory-wise and do wish it slowed down a little bit to give us more character connection, but overall is a great read. The dialogue is fantastic and the plot has some nice twists and turns. The art continues to be wonderfully done as Sanford Greene delivers some of his best work to date. In my opinion, you are doing yourself a disservice if you are not reading Bitter Root. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Tevin Murphy Dec 12, 2018

    Overall Bitter Root#2 continues the trend of the first issue and inspires both interest and mystery. Issue #2 does a fantastic job of feeding you little bits of information and exposition that help to further flesh out and pump life into the world of the Sangerye and Jinoo. With its colorful cast of characters and settings I'm certain Bitter Rootis going to be one of the series to watch out for in 2019 as its trio of creators continues to spin out the books fascinating concept and delve deeper into the Sangerye family and the world of the Purifiers.

    This is a must read for any Image fans, Sci-Fi fans, History Fans, Horror Fans, and anyone who just likes damn good story. Walker and Chuck Brown clearly put a lot of thought and time into this book and the deserve whatever support can be given. Greene's art is rich and interesting and this story has all the components of great work.

    Issue 2 maintains the high pace of issue 1. Walker is still setting up the cast and what looks to be a major conflict in how to deal with the high number of Jinoo(Demons/monster) that have infected a world so strangled by hate. That is really where Walker is shining. He has managed to give the monster that is this time of high hate a face. There is still a lot we don't know but I doubt we will be wa more
