    Mother of Madness is easily one of the most invigorating and satisfying comics I've read this year, and if you're not reading it, you're missing out. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 24, 2021

    M.O.M.: Mother of Madness #2 is an interesting second issue that further fleshes out who our protagonist is and why the actions in her past life made her into this powerful superhero. In many ways, M.O.M.: Mother of Madnessreads like a personal manifesto or diary that needs to be shared and respected in order to save the world. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 25, 2021

    The crazy energy of M.O.M. could be harnessed in a way that would make for a more appealing mini-series. Still, the narrative feels like its scattered all over the place. From a misunderstanding about a crime to life as a minor celebrity under the mask. To establishing a heros life WHILE establishing a big villain to mirror her. If it were all framed more compellingly, it could really turn into something fascinating. The opening issue really felt like it WAS going to be THAT. The second issue feels like a bit of a mess.

    BGCP - Michael Lennox Aug 31, 2021

    This issue is the mother of all messes, there are two many of everything from flashbacks, narrations, fourth-wall-breaking to friends who have unlimited resources and talent to solve all of her problems. There is a story here but it needed to be stretched over maybe 10 issues and heavily controlled by someone with strong talent and the ability to shape a story cohesively. This could have empowered many women (and men) through its strong message of chaos and growth but it's so hard to read that unfortunately many will discard both the message because of the execution of it.
