    Comic Bastards - Ben Snyder May 16, 2018

    The Dead Hand #2 is fantastic and the creative team behind this story is a powerhouse. It's not too late to begin the series as there are still so many questions up in the air and missing this series seems criminal. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy May 18, 2018

    I gave the opening installment of this series a 9.4 out of 10. This issue marginally exceeds even that issue, not least because it is hard to get a second installment retaining an opening momentum. This book does that. It also delivers two moments that stop you in your tracks, particularly at the end. If this book sustains this quality it is going to be talked about by people for a very long time indeed.

    If you're looking to expand your comic book horizon beyond super hero or movie tie-in stories, this would be a great book to pick up. There is a depth to the story and characters that has not yet been fully revealed and we're just the second step into the journey into finding out what the heck is going on in Mountain View. I'll keep this one on my pull list for the foreseeable future. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke May 15, 2018

    A good issue that doesn't hold back reveals, story progress, or plot turns you won't see coming. This is a spy drama with a twist and one that's very well suited for an adaptation to television. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 14, 2018

    The Dead Hand #2 is another impressive installment for Kyle Higgins and Stephen Mooneys comic book. Action is sprinkled in to help keep the pace quick, and the Cold War intrigue is interesting. The mystery and characters tie it all together well, and Mooney and Bellaire keep the visuals pristine. This one earns another recommendation. Check it out this Wednesday. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins May 15, 2018

    The Dead Hand is a spy thriller where there are wheels within wheels and we've yet to see what is really going on, how Carter and Renae got there, and who is in charge. This is a taut tale of espionage that is just beginning to open up. Read Full Review
