    I love Huck. I do. I am really looking forward to getting to know this gentle hero and where exactly he came from. Who are the mysterious red headed woman and strange Russian doctor? What is their part in all this? What about the twist in the last panel? We will no doubt find out. I cant recommend Huck highly enough. Its a real triumph for Millar and Albequerque. If you read nothing else before the end of the year then read this. You will thank me. Read Full Review

    This story was interesting when it started last issue, but it is only getting bigger and better. There are a lot more pieces to the puzzle that is Huck, and I am beyond stoked to figure it out. Read Full Review

    The opening issue of Huck was always going to be a hard act to follow, but credit where it's due, Millar has kept the bar high and laid firm foundations for what is shaping up to be a modern day classic. Read Full Review

    I said a lot of what I needed to in my first review about why this book is a beacon light in a somewhat darker comics world. I also mentioned why this series is a fresh breath of air and why I love it already. So I'll try to keep this short, issue 2 of Huck did not disappoint. Millar created a character that I wouldn't be afraid to show to a younger audience. A character with learning disabilities that's still a hero, and that alone is something kids can relate to. If I had this comic when I was a childit really would've made a difference as I struggled through elementary school to high school. I know that it can make a difference to kids who are still struggling today. This series is fantastic so far and it's only two issues in, do yourself a favor check it out. Read Full Review

    Huck #2 is yet another amazing comic, as despite the story dipping slightly compared to the opening issue, it still did more than enough to keep us returning for more. It also brought some new elements, but ultimately needs a more fleshed out narrative. Read Full Review

    PopOptiq - Logan Dalton Dec 16, 2015

    Even if the narrative gets darker around the edges with the introduction of Mrs. Jones' connection to a probably evil Siberian scientist and the general media storm, Huck #2 continues to be a study in optimism for Mark Millar and Rafael Albuquerque. Huck continues to help ordinary people in extraordinary ways even if he is surrounded by news choppers and random people. At this point, Orlov doesn't quite fit into the story and is a throwback to Russian villain trope, but Huck #2 more than makes up for this slight hiccup with evocative storytelling, a hopeful tone, and the introduction of tension in the plot for this exemplary hero.

    Huck's characters and beautiful artwork make the new series fun and exciting, but some new story elements hinted at in this issue could prove to be problematic going forward. Read Full Review

    The story is small - quaint by Mark Millar standards - but it's that focus that's making this such an enjoyable ride. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Dobler Dec 17, 2015

    Huck #2 feels pretty much the same as the debut issue, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. The stakes are raised as Huck's world and the knowledge of his place in it expand, but the pacing and art are familiar enough to remind you this is one, unfolding tale. Although some of the tropes employed here are kind of standard, their precise execution still elicits the desired outcome — you're hooked in and waiting for more. Read Full Review

    Huck #2 didn't disappoint. It takes a very slight dip for me from the first issue, but this second issue pleases in many ways. It has been one of the biggest surprises of the year and it's a great reminder of what makes comics great. What potential that comics have to tell meaningful and creative stories. Huck is sure to go on to inspire a new generation of comic book readers to become comic book creators and that's a hell of a thing to do. Read Full Review

    I loved the first issue, as it brought the world a bit more of innocence, of what it means to be a hero. The second issue enforces the what we saw in the first issue, and then some. We see constant reminders that even with all the power Huck has, deep down, he is a good human being, first and foremost. I think the world needs more of this- the world needs more of Huck.

    Fanboys Inc - Buddy Beaudoin Dec 30, 2015

    Huck is a charming reimagining of the classic superhero paradigm. The art, on all fronts, is spectacular and brings Millars narrative of altruism and deceit to stunning life. Though not the most original of beginnings to a superhero structure, Millar and Albuquerques imagination can bring this story to new heights, and I believe they will. Read Full Review

    Huck is a book with some serious potential, but Millar needs to push harder for that good will. Read Full Review
