    We The Nerdy - Kyle Simcox Jun 7, 2018

    Simply put, Death or Glory #2 keeps up with the momentum from the first issue really well despite it being all dialogue. Remender keeps the pressure on as the introduction of Korean Joe adds a real sense of weight to Glory's actions from the previous issue. Read Full Review

    This issue had quite a different feel to the first. Much darker, pretty extreme, quite funny, and with a very definite sense of peril, it was still a very fine read. I have to say that it is the art that is selling me on this series, I find it to be irresistible. The story was pretty good too! Check it out. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Leani Lopez Jul 6, 2018

    Issue #2 is a solid continuation of Death or Glory, and provides the readers with a greater sense of urgency, as well as more questions than answers, as any good story should. The world Glory lives in is far more sinister and depraved than we ever could have imagined, and I'm anxious to see if Glory eventually learns the scope of her ex's work. And if she does, how will she handle it? My guess: not well. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Damien Becton Jun 6, 2018

    Overall, the Death or Glory #2 is an extremely enjoyable book if you are into the weird, out-there stuff Remender is known for. Remender is able to take the story to even weirder heights, without sacrificing character moments or scenes that will get you invested into the characters. Bengal is masterful with the art one again, pencilling scenes that conveys pain and fear effectively. This definitely worth the $3.99. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Jun 11, 2018

    I'm on the fence about 'Death of Glory' now after reading the second issue. After some twisted turns, I'm not sure it's where I want to go. Yet, I can't deny the incredible art and storytelling execution. For all its weirdness, Remender writes a compelling if not thrilling crime story. I just hope it's worth all the cringe-worthy detours he puts us on and whether it's worth the shock value? The bottom line is it's too early to tell if this a stroke of genius from one of comics' most prolific writers or the early warning signal of a heaping flaming sewage barge headed right for us. There's only one way to tell - see you next month when I review issue three aka Remender's Reckoning.  Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Michael Jones Jun 6, 2018

    While I wish there was more action in this issue, I understand that at some point you have to expand the world and give us an idea of where the story is going. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jun 5, 2018

    I am still a bit on the fence with the story in Death or Glory. At first, it is pretty straightforward, but then Remender packs it full of all kinds of weirdness. I am not sure what to make of it; the character of Glory is fantastic and Remender is doing some good work building her up. The art by Bengal continues to be a delightful treat that makes this series a wonder to look at. I guess all this combined makes for a pretty interesting book that has me and apparently many other people picking it up. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 7, 2018

    While it's obviously Remender's prerogative to go as dark as he wants on his creator-owned book, the overreliance on these bits winds up costing Death or Glory, making it a potentially alienating read. Read Full Review

    The second issue of Death or Glory loses a lot of speed from its debut. Read Full Review
