As tragedy strikes around her, Honeysuckle does the only thing she knows to do-she devises a plan to walk to Denver to make sure her loved ones are okay. Though the deadly rain could fall at any moment, she quickly learns there are things just as dangerous as the corrupted weather: other people.
Adapted by rising stars DAVID M. BOOHER (Canto) and ZOE THOROGOOD (The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott).

    It's rare that a second issue is as good as the first, but a dare say, Rain #2 may be even better. Read Full Review

    BGCP - Michael Lennox Feb 16, 2022

    After the horrifically violent first issue, this issue develops Honeysuckle while allowing the wider characters given just enough visibility to allow you to make a judgement on them. It's a useful vehicle to grow the story from her point of view without obsessing over the reason for the killer rain. Read Full Review

    Overall, #2 is a great continuation to Honeysuckles powerful storyline. It maintains the pace and the expectations from the first issue, and leaves you waning for more! Bring on #3! Read Full Review

    Thorogood delivers some visually compelling and beautifully detailed moments on every page. The visual focus on character is amazing and the style puts the reader in the shoes of the character as she experiences the events around her. Read Full Review

    Joe Hill's Rain #2 continues the story after the last issue's gory climax, spending more time with Honeysuckle and her friends not impacted by the disaster, adding new layers to them and laying the groundwork for an expanded view of that world. It mixes emotional and humorous scenes with scenes of gore and terror, and the whole book has a wonderfully creepy sense of doom throughout. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    What now? Well what now is Honeysuckle keeps moving forward. Never back. There is a lot of messaging in Rain so far. Issue #2 tells us never back down. Put on your best shitkickers and put one foot in front of the other. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Feb 16, 2022

    Not really in content, but in form, Rain #2 reminds me of the better Vertigo books which would pair a prose stylist with a skilled visual storyteller to create comics bursting to the seams with information while also being fun to read and follow. Read Full Review

    It's hard to watch people suffer so, but this work is presented so compellingly that it's just as hard to look away. Read Full Review

    The main story has come into focus with a new character coming into play, but it's still a little slow in the pacing, which may not be for everyone. Read Full Review
