With his wife's medical bills piling up, Martin Dobbs is forced back into his Dead Rabbit mask. Rabbit loves to do crimes and get paid, and the first step to financial solvency is getting his crew back together. Rabbit's Wheelman makes a costly mistake and the job doesn't go quite as planned in mirror of a real-life incident that nearly killed the writer off in Boston in 1994. Whatever doesn't kill you makes you money, is what I always say.

    Yeah, it's not bad. It still feels a bit familiar, but if Duggan can keep this thing fun, we might just have a winner on our hands. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Daniel Clark Nov 9, 2018

    So far Dead Rabbit has been a well-executed crime drama that knows what it is and how to slight subvert the expectations it was leaning towards. At its heart, it is a series about asking some key questions; What defines us more our actions or our motives? Can that definition actually change or are well always doomed by our past sins? How effective those questions are answers will determine how this series turns out. So far things are looking good for the series, not so good for our characters. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alex McGlenn Nov 6, 2018

    This issue does a few things well in terms of the overall series. #2 introduces a new character and complexifies him. It also pulls readers perspective of Martin Dobbs, a.k.a Dead Rabbit way back. It rewrites the "hero" from issue #1, as a desperate man who will do anything, hurt anyone, to get what he wants. Despite the fact Martin Dobbs is a man who believes in good and evil in issue #1, he is every shade of gray. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Nov 9, 2018

    Killer character design notwithstanding, Gerry Duggan and John McCrea's Dead Rabbit can't help but feel like a derivative one-last-job kind of crime book " but to their credit, for a comic that would likely be DOA in any other hands winds up being a fun and exciting romp. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Nov 7, 2018

    It's evident that Duggan has set out to comment on an important aspect of American life through the prism of a man desperate to save his wife's life. He doesn't preach, but lays out why a man who is living a comfortable life might be pushed to do what he does, against his best interests. More than that, Dead Rabbit #2 is a solid story about a skilled bank robber who never quite lost the itch, and even if he is using his wife's illness as an excuse to get back in the saddle, he's putting the money to a good cause. But, as the warnings say, don't try this at home, kids. Read Full Review
