    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 21, 2018

    Infidel #2 follows up on the promise and engagement of the first issue with aplomb. Pornsak Pichetshotes writing continues to be endlessly absorbing, and Campbell and Villarrubias artwork crafts a world unlike any other. This comic earns another strong recommendation.

    Multiversity Comics - Gustavo S Lodi Apr 20, 2018

    Just as provocative and timely as its debut issue, "Infidel" #2 continues to present a terrifying scenario, where believable characters struggle to remain intact with their moral core. And that is even before any supernatural monster or creature can raise its ugly head. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Apr 20, 2018

    This was an intriguing issue which really challenged some of my assumptions formed in the opening installment. I had to reconsider my views on the mother-in-law, and I am also intrigued by the concept of this book - namely that racism and hate find a way of manifesting themselves in the world outside the physical sphere. There is something chilling about the concept of those sentiments inhabiting the atmosphere long after their human hosts are gone. Can't wait to see what happens next, but the ending suggests that there'll be no happy outcome. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Frantz Jerome Apr 20, 2018

    He centers that experience as a part of why Infidel explores what it does. Pichetshote also makes sure to shout out his whole squad, a collection of talented outliers, without whom Infidel wouldn't be possible. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Brendan F. Hodgdon Apr 19, 2018

    The issue ends on an emotionally horrifying note, one that sets up some very upsetting consequences in the next issue. At this point, it already seems like Aisha's been dragged down too far, and that there's no way she could possibly escape the trap that her life has become. Of course, that only makes reading the next issue even more of an imperative. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Adam Brown Apr 19, 2018

    Everything in this just seems to work so well building on all the strengths exhibited in the first issue. The last few panels leave some pause for concern as to how this will play, out but then isnt that all part of the enjoyment? Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Patrick Cavanaugh Apr 18, 2018

    This issue skimped on some of the racial themes introduced in the first issue to focus more on the pure fright, amping up the stakes to surprising levels that are sure to entertain horror fans. Read Full Review

    I didn't think I was going to have anything more to add after reading the first issue of this series. But the words "Fuck" in varying emphases on syllables came out of my mouth a lot, especially towards the end of the issue itself.

    The mystery is starting to be revealed with a few details, some symbols, some references to past events. Even Leslie, Aisha's potential mother-in-law seems to have a story the prejudice with which she is struggling. And we see the ghosts -- or demons -- starting to really get at work with sudden page and panel transitions, with heightened jagged colours by Campbell, Powell, and Villarrubia. It is here we truly begin to see just why these monsters are so evil in how they operate: how they drive people a more

    Amazing. Stunning artwork and even better story. The horror here is just great. Wish I wasn't reading the single issues just so that I could read the whole story in one go.

    Racist drivel and extremist liberal propaganda. Oh, and the artwork is awful too.
