"THE DEVIL'S DEVIL," Part Two-Wizord, New York City's beloved sorcerous protector (at least that's what he wants you to think) has done something TERRIBLE to the city. It was sort of an accide-no. It was completely on purpose, and now he has to fix it before everything goes to hell. Meanwhile, evil wizards, including Wizord's ex Ruby Stitch, are lining up to take him down. It ain't gonna be pretty-but it's gonna be MAGIC.

    Curse Words #2 does a great job keeping up the momentum from Issue #1, and as the plot thickens and more players are introduced, I find myself enjoying this series more and more. Buy Curse Words #2. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Feb 25, 2017

    Ultimately then, while this latest chapter doesnt quite hit the heights of the first issue, this is still a series that comes highly recommended, with Soule and Browne combining to create something truly unique, from the artwork to the lead character himself. And, providing it can decide whether it's a fantasy with dashes of comedy or a comedy with hints of fantasy, this could wind up becoming something truly special. I'll definitely be sticking around to find out, that's for sure. Read Full Review

    Curse Words #2 is good, building off the last issue and delivering some magical fun along the way. Wizord is an interesting character which makes the use of his magic even more clever. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jessica Petrecz Feb 26, 2017

    Curse Words #2is a terrific follow-up to the first issue; the art's attention to detail coupled with the rapid pacing of the story, all demonstrate how fun and complex this book is. The character of Wizord is more complex than the hipster beard would lead one to believe. (Side note: It was nice to get confirmation from this book that all magic is attributed to a mans facial hair, something we have all long suspected.) There is a lot of room to grow with this character and infinite stories this team could put out. This issue shows the true potential for Curse Words to be a rewarding, long running series.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Feb 22, 2017

    I'll likely give this series one more issue. It was a decent read. I was entertained, but not enough to look past its flaws which is a shame considering how close to great it is. If a couple of changes were made to this issue I might be writing an entirely different review, but what's there is what's there, and this is where my review stands. Read Full Review
