    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Nov 20, 2014

    Goners is a perfect mix of horror and adventure. It's a fast paced comic that begins with breakneck speed and never lets up. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Ben Ecker Nov 25, 2014

    Corona's art is perfectly in line with the original approach that's present in the writing. There's a very distinct anime vibe to the book, with large eyed characters and very exaggerated movement. There's a lot of action and blood and guts in this issue and Corona brings an incredible amount of dynamics to it all. The art was already good in issue one, but the addition of Steve Wands on inking duties, in combination with the colors by Gabriel Cassata, really makes this issue pop, and I'm looking forward to that continuing from here.

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Nov 20, 2014

    Goners feels both fresh and familiar. It's one of those stories that embodies all of the great things we love to read in comics. Right now is an incredible time for independent and creator-owned series. It's hard to follow all of the amazing new series that have been coming out. Most readers only have a certain amount of expendable time and money, butGoners is a series more people should dive into. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Matt Deery Nov 19, 2014

    Goners second issue is once again a great fun book to read you can tell that the creative team are pouring their hearts and souls into it and having a great amount of fun creating this book. It will be interesting to see how things develop as this arc continues but for now it remains a great book to pick up at the end of a long day and just have some fun. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Nov 18, 2014

    If they make it out of this house alive, it will be interesting to see where this story goes. For right now, however, I'm really enjoying the mayhem. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tres Dean Nov 20, 2014

    Image's latest out-of-nowhere smash hit debuted last month in the form of Goners, a fun, rampant romp of a family horror story by writer Joseph Semahn and artist Jorge Corona. The follow-up issue is, as its predecessor, a whole lot of fun. The entire book is essentially one extended action sequence filled with some really wonderful staging. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Nov 20, 2014

    Goners #2 is a very mixed bag. There are elements that work and the story and concept still remain very intriguing. However, the lack of backstory, foundation, or context for anything in the comic really hamper the experience and make it hard to really get into the book. There are things that can definitely be improved upon, and hopefully that happens soon. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Akadavid Nov 19, 2014

    Overall, Goners #2 is a good read. Building on the momentum of the first issue, the second issue is jammed with action while keeping a good pace. This comic series has a lot of potential to be a great one, just hope that Semahn and Corona can deliver on the goods. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - F-O-R-R-E-S-T Nov 19, 2014

    This issue is a notch up from the first one without a doubt . A failed and successful experiment in ways, a book that feels too long and too short. However, I can see these creators settling into a real stride that may turn into a fun, bumpy, twisty and turny run. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Nina Bird Nov 19, 2014

    Goners #2 was a lot of blood, violence, and close calls, and not much plot. It's an extended action sequence, essentially, which a sprinkle of flashbacks. This is fine so long as the next issue picks up with the story-telling. As fun as the fight scenes are, we need a bit more substance, especially so early in the story when we don't quite understand everything that is happening. Read Full Review

    Really no character or plot development. But I honestly don't care, it's a tad 'cartoony' and filled with action. It's just hack'n'slash eye candy, some might need more, but I'm ok with reading one silly gore comic a month.
