    Injection#2 is a sharply written spy thriller, highlighted by an intense action sequence worthy of a Bond film. As Ellis stretches the world outward,Injectionshows just how nimbly it will be able to move between genres. These fascinating characters are introduced to readers through their actions and their expressions, and Ellis' script allows the audience to know them intimately in only a few issues. Declan Shalvey's art, along with the expert coloring by Jordie Bellaire create a delectable reading experience. This issue has solidifiedInjectionas a series not to be missed. Read Full Review

    Ellis is clearly revealing only as much as he absolutely has to about the nature of these characters and their supernaturally-charged world, but what e does illuminate is pretty fascinating. It's equal parts X-Files and Bourne Identity, with an extra helping of weirdness for good measure. Read Full Review

    This issue was a straight up focus on the main characters yet none the worst for it, it drops enough intriguing titbits to keep your interest in the central mystery. A great start to this series so far has left me very optimistic about the books continuing quality (Yet a tested creative team such as this doesnt hurt), eagerly awaiting issue number 3.

    Multiversity Comics - Stephenson Ardern-Sodje Jun 12, 2015

    In a book like this, with characters who are all so close to being super-human, it's often difficult to maintain a sense of conflict or danger. Ellis and Shalvey have hit the sweet middle ground in that respect, with light touches of humanity shining through amid the chaotic otherness of their narrative. While issue two of “Injection” has a lot more forward momentum than its predecessor, it still feels like the opening adage for a much grander symphony. Anyone who's enjoyed Ellis' previous work on “Planetary” should totally be reading this already and, for those of you who are unconvinced after the first two chaotic issues, I firmly believe this is a comic that will ultimately be worth investing in.

    All-Comic - Tyler Goulet Jun 11, 2015

    Ellis is amazing, Declan and Jordie are pumping out career-defining work andInjectionis yet another Image book that will undoubtedly be on everybodys best of lists for 2015. It almost feels like a sleeper at this point, simply because the coverage doesnt seem to be there just yet, but itll get there and you (yes you, reader, youve not been forgotten) will want to get in on this at the ground level. This is not a series you want to come late to. Its not a trade-waiting kind of book, though itll read fantastic in a trade just as it does in singles.Injectionis just starting to put its pieces together and reveal where this creative team is headed and, god damnit, if these first two issues are any indication its going to be one hell of a ride.

    Big Comic Page - Chris Bennett Jun 9, 2015

    This is shaping up to be something beautiful. with the Sci-Fi esque "she knows" at the beginning to the all out action of the rest of the book, there's something in the works here that could be amazing. Only problem is, I still have no idea what that something is yet, and i don't know if that's a good thing 2 issues in. Read Full Review

    Do I know what's going on yet? No, but I know enough to want to see more. "Injection" is more ambitious than the self-contained mysteries of "Moon Knight." It's delivering on art and characters but needs a lot more plot definition by the end of the first arc. Warren, Shalvey and Bellaire still work together as a dream team, though, so chances are it will get there. Read Full Review
