The Beauty has transformed average people into beautiful people. But is it killing them too? Detectives Vaughn and Foster are close to learning the truth, and that puts them directly in harm's way. Sometimes the truth isn't pretty.

    Just like the first issue, this book kept me turning pages and feeling sad that I had reached the end. With Jeremy Hauns spot-on artwork, easily relatable characters, and the growing conspiracy behind the disease, The Beauty #2 is a must-read. Read Full Review

    "The Beauty" #2 is a much stronger issue than "The Beauty" #1 and the story has taken off quicky. This is a creative premise with a creative team with the chops to make it work. Read Full Review

    A skillfully constructed horror book, that looks nothing at all like a horror book. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Sep 21, 2015

    Some of the more interesting aspects of this issue are only played upon briefly, such as the violent reaction Foster had to his 'change.' It all happens off-panel, and as pragmatic as the opening pages might have been, we see the physical effects of his reaction and that alone opens up a world of character notes that Haun and Hurley have only just started to play with, particularly Foster's relationship with his wife. The issue ends with an action cliffhanger this time, but one of the exciting things about this series is going to be the discovery of who these characters are. The conspiracy might be a grand one, but these leads are a mystery worth pursuing all by themselves. Read Full Review

    This is a pretty good issue overall. It definitely changes the focus of the plot, but it’ll be pretty cool to see a political conspiracy instead of an STD epidemic. I’m pretty excited to see what the government is up to, and how Foster is going to expose it/figure it out. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - David Craig Sep 16, 2015

    The Beauty continues to be a book worthy of your time and money, with this second issue maintaining a fast pace from its explosive first page to its action packed climax. With its intelligent story, well-rounded characters and wonderful artwork this book is shaping up to be something very impressive indeed. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Tyler Sewell Sep 17, 2015

    All in all this is still a good issue. It more clearly establishes the future for the series and this plot building had a lot to do with the issue being slow at times. Yes, it comes down a few notches from its first issue, but that's to be expected. Issue three should give us a clearer view of the quality of the series overall. Read Full Review
