    In general, I believe ROMULUS #2 is a huge improvement from ROMULUS #1. We're getting to know the characters and starting to see major themes of how oppressed people navigate their own oppression. I'm excited to learn more about these three "nasty women" and watch them learnto break free of their flawed roles. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Nov 29, 2016

    Hill and Blake II have the pace quickening right from the jump of issue two and while I'd rather have not gotten a new character with such an incredible ability so soon, Hill obviously knows what he's doing in terms of an endgame. Hill's ability to use the captions as to not only simply state Ashlar's internal dialogue, but to add an air of poetry to it as well, continues to be a staple in this book that I hope isn't being overlooked by fellow fans. Hill's detail and Blake II's visualization to bring those specifics to life are going to keep Romulus on at the top of your pull list. Read Full Review

    Despite the fact that we are still in the early stages of this series, Romulus seems to promise great things. Keep an eye on it! Read Full Review

    Combine all of that with some great new story seeds, and Romulus #2 should assuage any second issue letdown concerns. Unlike the conspiracy theories that your uncle posts about on Facebook, this series is the real deal. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Dec 1, 2016

    This might have been one of the more low-key releases to come from Image Comics in recent months, but Hill and Blake have kept the quality consistent from the first issue to the second as it heads further down the rabbit hole, and that consistency is enough of a reason this should be on your radar.

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Dec 2, 2016

    Hill is building this new world and fleshing out the characters more in issue two. He aptly balances the exposition with exciting action sequences beautifully choreographed with Blake's artitistic touch. If the first issue of 'Romulus' didn't grab you then the follow-up should. Things are about to get cooking in this intriguing new series. Read Full Review

    Bryan Hill is continuing his world building in a confident manner, with interesting flourishes. It's certainly intriguing, and it's nicely complimented by Nelson Blake II's art, which is definitely growing on me. I didn't find it quite so flat this time. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Nov 30, 2016

    By that logic then, I owe Romulus one more chance. But lets be real here: The bar I mentioned before is buying a house in mole people city because it knows its going to be living there forever. Read Full Review
