    You Don't Read Comics - Gage Bullock Jun 14, 2017

    It's a well placed story that is unsettling yet you can't keep your eyes off of it. It also helps that the book is just fantastic visually as well. If Regression keeps up this quality of work then we're in for a good ride. Read Full Review

    Cullen and Luckert continue to deliver and make this book not to be missed read. Find Regression #1 if you still can, and make sure to continue with this outstanding sophomore issue. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Donald Edmonds Jun 21, 2017

    I like surprises in art style and in writing, and when these two come together, the work that is produced tends to leave a lasting impression on the industry. Regression #2 does that in a way that I hate, where now I have to applaud a genre that I am most uncomfortable with: horror. Cullen Bunn is already known for brilliant writing, and this title is no exception to his skill of storytelling. Yet after seeing a few pages from Danny Luckert, I am mesmerized at how he can draw a character so simply yet detail them in such a way to make them utterly disgusting, in tandem with the writing of Bunn no less. And after reading up a bit on Luckert, it seems he is fairly new to the comic book industry with only a few titles under his belt. With what we've seen from these pages, I believe he will have a long career as a notable artist for many titles to come. Read Full Review

    Regression #2 moves this strange story along in an interesting fashion, as despite some of the supernatural twists being a little too much at times, the final product is nonetheless entertaining. The creative team also do a brilliant job of introducing some new characters into the narrative, with Detective Graymercy sure to become a thorn in Adrian's side. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jun 14, 2017

    By the end of Regression #2 I think it is a safe bet that this is worth sticking through with. The horror is in all the things you don't know, the things you know will happen, and what happens when you are dealing with a human ticking bomb. Adrian is the product of what happens when you just aren't getting the right kind of help for things that would break anyone else in his position. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Sheena Fisher Jun 17, 2017

    In this issue we have a few answers, but even more questions. Watching Adrian become what he once was is scary and intriguing. The mystery of his past has me wanting to learn more. Who was the deity in his vision? Is he being fully possessed by a former version of himself? What havoc will that wreak in the present day? These questions have me excited to learn more.

    Comic Bastards - Daniel Vlasaty Jun 14, 2017

    I like a good horror book as much as the next guy. But I like when my horror feels fresh and digs deep into the mind and body. I like it messy and kind of gross and weird. And Regression has all of this. As long as Bunn stays away from the clichs this book can really become a unique and interesting thing. I have high hopes after reading these first two issues.

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Jun 14, 2017

    I'm unsure of whether I went into my reading of this issue expecting too much, but for me, it just didn't work. I'm hoping though that this issue is only a speed bump of sorts, and before long, we'll be back on track. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Erik Koehn Jun 14, 2017

    Regression might be a book I need to revisit at the conclusion of the arc as many of my complaints might be irrelevant in the context of the overall story. But as a single issue read, Regression #2 is the very definition of an average comic. Read Full Review
