    While the idea of a revenge plot is rather simple, I won't deny that Samaritan Veritas #2 is more than that and can be complicated. There are different players all with different motives, and I can only hope that this expanded upon, while I support Sam at the moment I don't want everything to be too easy for her and I also wouldn't mind if she had more flaws though right now it would seem her cockiness is a big one. This is a world where things aren't as simple as "good and evil, " and while the government seems to be overall big bad, 'd like to see some more depth and gray areas. However, I enjoyed reading this issue and felt the action was a nice change of pace from what I normally like. Read Full Review

    Samaritan: Veritas #2 moves our story forward in dramatic fashion, with the creative team delivering a thoroughly tantalising issue. Between Samaritan's attempt at abducting a wealthy businessman linked with the presidentand the organisation hunting her down, there is more than enough to hook readers, with the climax sure to leave you returning for more.

    'Samaritan: Veritas' is a complex and smart thriller that demands your attention. Sam's revenge won't come easy as her pursuers close in. We want to see the villains pay but is Sam too cocky for own good? She's a few steps ahead of her enemies for now but as issue two shows, they are determined to quiet her for good. Immersive, intriguing, and intense, 'Samaritan' is a solid thriller worth diving into. Read Full Review

    A rather controversial, yet interesting look into the developing story of the Samaritan hacker, but could use a bit more nuance on the side of the antagonists. Read Full Review

    Samaritan Veritas #2 ends on another cliffhanger after having moved the plot forward. If you liked the first issue, then youll like this one, though I still wish this series had something to make it stand out more outside of its particular target for political commentary being religion and religious figures (which is a little out of place in the whole assassinate the President plot, but its something).
