    Issue two of Little Monsters does everything it needs to. It expands the mythos the team is building with a look into the past but also pushes the story forward with the introduction of several new characters and enough clever story twists and revelations to make it a perfect second installment in the series. Much like Billy's first proper taste of human blood, it's an intoxicating combination of excellent writing and striking art that leaves you wanting more. Read Full Review
