    The Forged #2 is a perfect space soldier action comic. In every aspect of it's execution, from superbly well written character dialogue to huge bombastic action scenes on a hostile alien world, the creative team does an incredible job of immersing you as the reader in the adventure on the page. There is a unparalleled level of commitment made into fleshing out and universe building on display here. It's, to put simply, a perfect second issue. Read Full Review
