    But Why Tho? - Rashaad Nov 22, 2019

    Overall, The Marked #2 is still continuing to become a great story-driven comic with some awesome characters and cool ways to utilize magic outside of its usual high fantasy stereotyping. The modern-day atmosphere keeps it fresh and makes me feel like I could one day walk outside and see someone using glyphs as I walk down the street and just simply be amazed. I would highly recommend this series for anyone who enjoys magic, a solid storyline that can hook you in, science fiction, or a badass cast of women. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Nov 20, 2019

    The Marked has a cool concept with the whole magical tattoo thing (glyphs, I know they're called glyphs) and a great set up with the secret government paranormal agency, so this looks like it is off to a good start. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 22, 2019

    Having firmly set-up the heroic side of the story in the first issue, Hine and Haberlin deliver the darker end of the villains in a very engaging second issue. The story could go in so many exciting directions from here. The challenge for the creators is going to lie in keeping it interesting and novel enough that it doesn't feel too derivative without diving so far into the novelty that it feels like a gimmick. Hine and Haberlin do a good job of moving things forward in this second issue. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Nov 20, 2019

    The Marked #2 was a dark and deeply concerning issue, for a variety of reasons. Readers will now have a full understanding of how dangerous magic can be. And why it should never be allowed to get into the wrong hands. Read Full Review
