    What was hidden has finally emerged, as I am finding it much easier to follow this second issue of Underwinter than the first. I needed to re-read the first issue a couple times to really grasp at what was happening in the plot. This issue felt a lot clearer, and I only needed a single read through to grasp what was going on. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Apr 26, 2017

    Underwinter continues its unique literary and stylistic approach to the telling a familiar story. Well done at every turn. This is an elevation of the comic art form. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Tim Montoya Apr 27, 2017

    This is not your typical comic. Be it horror or DC or Marvel, whatever you enjoy. This, in my opinion, is Brilliantly written and drawn. Some of the best horror and novels were ever written never showed you the monster. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Apr 25, 2017

    As to the plot of the thing, well, all you need to know is that the four players have been invited back, and the money is just a little too good to turn down. Everything else is, well, fractals. We are protected. For now. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Eric Cline Apr 25, 2017

    While not quite as good as the first issue, Underwinter #2 continues to deliver stellar artwork and an intriguing narrative. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jonathan Edwards May 1, 2017

    I'll be honest, this issue did have me rethink the book a bit. If you read the last one and didn't quite care for it, you probably don't need to keep reading. If you did like it, you can probably go ahead and pick this one up. Although, I would keep in mind that Fawkes's writing is perhaps preferencing the trade over monthly reading, but issue #3 could prove me wrong. But for what's it's worth, Underwinter #2 didn't kill for me, and I will be back for the next one. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Repairman Jack Apr 29, 2017

    Minimal, sometimes leaning toward childish, art makes this attempt at a visceral or emotional story near impossible to get a foothold on the story. I find almost nothing to like here. Read Full Review
