    Damn, near perfect, the cliffhanger just killed it for me, in a good way!! I'm not so patiently waiting for the next issue! Kelly Thompson and the rest of the team bring such an action-packed female lead book that makes you realize how many facets a soldier has to face. Moreover, adding to the hurdles of being a woman trying to find herself speaks volumes. Read Full Review

    Scarlett #2 keeps the series' foot on the gas pedal with an issue filled with brutal action and high-stakes espionage. Don't miss out on what is easily among the best comics part of Skybound's Energon Universe lineup. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 2, 2024

    Scarlett #2 offers up more espionage fight scenes, and further developments on a suicide mission Scarlett is committed to enduring. The Energon Universe is as strong as ever when it can delve into character as well as series like Scarlett does. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 3, 2024

    Scarlett #2 is another solid issue that sets things up further for the mission and delivers action and moments that are memorable. It's another great expansion of Skybound's G.I. JOE universe while keeping things tight and focused. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Jul 3, 2024

    The final pages see miss O'Hara off on another potential suicide mission to prove her worth to the Arashikage, and promises more slick espionage action from Thompson and Ferrari in the issues to come. Delivering a heady blend of spycraft, ninja action and familiar G.I. Joe faces, this series gives the fan-favourite character a fresh coat of paint an exciting new direction. Highly recommended.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 3, 2024

    Scarlett #2 nails putting over the title character as badass fighter and spy. Establishing that was key in making the infiltration of Clan Arashikage work. Where things are left create even more excitement to see how Scarlett can survive and be successful in the mission she was given. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jan 1, 1970

    This wasn't a bad issue so much as it just felt like little happened from Point B to D. The quick pace spy thriller vibe from the previous issue hit a lull making for a decent, if uneventful second outing. Read Full Review

    Comical Opinions - Gabriel Hernandez Jul 3, 2024

    SCARLETT #2 pulls our hero deeper undercover when she's tested beyond her limits to be accepted by the Arishikage clan. Kelly Thompson does a fine job elevating Scarlett and the clan through strong character work, but the art is sub-par, the lack of G.I. Joe hallmarks keeps this story from progressing beyond generic spy fodder, and the interconnectedness with the Energon universe is nowhere to be found. Read Full Review

    The fight choreography was very well done, and like I said last issue, I like this character. Unfortunately there wasn’t much of substance in this issue, leaving me pretty unsatisfied.

    This issue was a bit bland compared to the last. Honestly it's more what I was expecting in a book by Kelly Thompson. The start wasn't so bad, but after Storm Shadow showed up the rest was pretty dull.
    I really don't know what to make of the Energon Universe Scarlett. She's not really very likable and it's looking more and more like Thompson wants to make her as different from the classic one as she can. I won't get started on the controversial issue of her likely bisexuality, but that is pretty much obvious as Thompson is a BIG believer in making her characters that way. In truth I always thought even in the '90s that She, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow were given too much spotlight over the other characters and it's been the case ever more
