    Unlike it's titles suggestion, Burn The Orphanage is most certainly not born to lose and is a must read for anyone who grew up on a steady diet of video games, comics and action movies. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Dec 5, 2013

    Grace's art is fluid and lively and an absolute perfect fit for the story they are telling. Even though there's an image of female nudity, it's done more to satirize the busty females of these types of games than to titillate the reader. There's also a police officer fighter, a dude with an animal head, and a creature that's not even human, none of whom would be strangers on any fighting game roster. There's even a tournament bracket with all the different fighters on it like you'd see on a fighting game loading screen. I could go on listing all of the awesome stuff these guys crammed into this book, but you're better off reading it and enjoying the hell out of it yourself. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Wesley Messer Dec 6, 2013

    Burn the Orphanage is a comic that if you have a fan of retro gaming in your life, send this their way. If there's a chance you managed to miss Burn the Orphanage #1, not a problem you can easily jump on board with this issue if need be. It's new reader friendly, it's fun and appeals to the comic and gaming communities, what's not to like? I'm awaiting the next and final issue of this trilogy with baited breath. Grace and Freeman have crafted an exciting, engaging and downright fun comic in Burn the Orphanage and it would be even better if the third issue was out now. Alas, I must be patient but once you read this you'll realize I can't wait to see how the Burn the Orphanage trilogy ends, and then hoping for an ongoing to follow suit. Read Full Review

    All told, if you liked the first issue, you'll find even more to love in this second one: it moves quickly, it hits the nostalgia factor hard, and it's got a great sense of fun. If any of these factors sounds like a good time to you, chances are you'll feel compelled to play "Burn the Orphanage" right to the end. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Rafael Gaitan Dec 10, 2013

    Although it's a $5 cover price, Burn the Orphanage #2 is a surefire read- it's smart, scrappy and spunky as hell. Freedman and Grace have avoided the rose-colored pitfalls that come with writing a love letter to a genre and instead have left it a note indicating it knows where to find them if it ever wants to see its daughter again.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Dec 4, 2013

    Burn The Orphanage: Born to Lose #2 is a good comic that's made for an audience that's been missing the seemingly never ending hoursspent with their Sega Genesis or Super Nintendo. This one is for you. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Dec 5, 2013

    Burn the Orphanage #2 will inevitably be remembered as one of those books that is based on a great idea, but one unfortunately squandered by simultaneously trying too hard and shying away from its point. It was a struggle for me to finish this issue, and as far as this book is concerned, it was definitely my final fight. Read Full Review
