    We The Nerdy - Eduardo Gueiros Feb 28, 2014

    Overall, this second issue was an incredibly successful follow-up to the introductory chapter of this series. It established some important characteristics for certain characters, while still maintaining an air of mystery surrounding their motivations and desires. The story, however, lacks any substantial plot progression. The lengthy, but exciting, action sequence takes up a large chunk of the issue, leaving little room for much else. The purpose of this is clear, but I still cant help but wish that I had a little bit more of an idea where the underlying story is going. That being said, the story so far has been intriguing, and the art has been able to effectively visualize it in a unique way. I look forward to seeing what happens to the new-age EGOs in the coming issues, and am certain we wont be disappointed. Read Full Review

    "EGOs" #2 feels to me like the book has finished coming together, and that it's on a good path with lots of interesting stories ahead. If you were on the fence after the first issue, definitely stop in for a second helping. With no "Legion of Super-Heroes" right now, this is a more than good substitute for science fiction superheroics. Read Full Review

    Quirky, violent, full of potential and gorgeously illustrated and colored, EGOs is a book that Im growing more and more certain that Ill be glad I began reading a year from now once things really start rolling. As it currently sits, this books a blast already. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Feb 12, 2014

    EGOs #2 did not grip me in the same way as the series' virgin issue, but neither did it turn me off completely. I think Moore needs to shore up and condense his story, to focus it and build on the touchstones of his threads, and if he is up to that job (for which he is clearly more than capable) and Storms continues to turn in a good aesthetic lead, then I have high hopes EGOs can rebound into a pretty stellar little book indeed.

    AiPT! - Gregory Paul Silber Feb 14, 2014

    Frankly, I couldn't follow much of what was going on in this issue and the previous one, partly because it was so hard for me to care about the characters. Stuart Moore has said that the marriage of Pixel and Deuce is particularly interesting to him, but Saga this is not. I don't buy Pixel and Deuce as a couple. I don't even buy them as a couple that isn't right for each other. They just seem to be two people that were thrown into a marriage for the purposes of a story, with no plausible reason for why they would have been drawn to each other in the first place.

    Big Comic Page - Blair Stevenson Feb 11, 2014

    The art wasnt any better I am afraid, with a lot of the frames looking unfinished. The characters looked reminiscent of 80s glam rock superstars, each with their own blow-dried hairstyle and obscene amounts of eyeliner. Read Full Review
