    The Latest Pull - Marcus Orchard Mar 13, 2015

    Casanova: Acedia #2 is an intelligent read that feels more like "Casanova" than the first issue did. While the first issue established the characters and Cass' amnesia, this one brought back some of the lore from previous arcs. This is a brilliantly crafted issue and confirmation that this arc of "Casanova" is just as good as all the others, possibly better. Fabio Moon is at his best, and I hope to see him draw more crazy demons before everything is said and done. Fans of the series have no reason to put this series down now. Read Full Review

    As a reader, you could always sense that Casanova was something special to the creative team, but Acedia, so far, has shown that they don't feel it is sacred enough to no try new things with it. That's what makes this arc feel so exciting; it is everything you loved about Casanova previously filtered through an entirely different, more grounded lens. Casanova Quinn may not fully know who he is just yet but Acedia #2 makes damn sure that comic book fans know his name. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - StephenFn Mar 11, 2015

    In back-up We have celebrated novelist Michael Chabon (The Yiddish Policeman's Union, The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Wonder Boys) penning Kawaii Five-O (with art by Gabriel B). This is much shorter piece at 5 pages per issue and is harder to pin down as far narrative goes. That said with creators like this on hand along with Peter's colouring it is no less stylish than its host. It reads like The Metanauts are extra dimensional dirty jobs men with some being famous in the ‘main' world. It is more than intriguing enough to capture readers imaginations while they are figuring out the full story. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Andr Habet Mar 12, 2015

    Add to this impressive character work, the fact that Fbio Moon illustrates the hell out of this comic, particularly during an interrogation scene with the female assassin from last issue, and it becomes more difficult for me to justify not having read previous volumes of this great series. I have no idea what turn this comic will take next (hopefully that demon makes a comeback), but so long as Fraction and Moon are at the helm, I trust it's gonna be a good time. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Stephenson Ardern-Sodje Mar 12, 2015

    Overall, this issue merely cements the calm, confident, and well thought out style that I've come to expect from Fraction on “Casanova”, a piece of work that is almost the definition of a passion project. While it's unfolding a little less frantically than its predecessors did, I'm happy to wait for the reveals as they come, because there still doesn't seem to be a single panel of wasted space. Fraction, Moon, and their creative team are putting out one of the most intriguing, and explorative comic books available at the moment, and I'm just happy to be along for the ride. Read Full Review
