    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Dec 12, 2019

    Undiscovered Country #2 continues to be as impressive as the hype leading up to it promised. It's a very good example of a perfect balance between well-crafted character writing and storytelling using American symbolism, allegorical concepts, with straight-up dystopian sci-fi to tell a deeply engaging story. I highly recommend it! Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Mateo Guerrero Dec 11, 2019

    Undiscovered Country #2 brings Snyder and Soule's twisted map of America into full focus. Part adventure, part commentary, this comic promises a wild ride along the American Spiral. I can't wait to see where the spiral takes Undiscovered Country next. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Dec 11, 2019

    This issue of Undiscovered Country is an improvement over the first, focusing as it does on Daniel and giving the artists more opportunities to show off some wild stuff. Unfortunately, its still a little muddy and esoteric as a comic; some answers to what has actually happened inside the US in this weird sci-fi hellscape would go a long way towards making the series make a bit more sense.

    Multiversity Comics - Joe Skonce Dec 16, 2019

    Snyder and Soule do a great job of baiting the hook in "Undiscovered Country" #2. Combine that with a Mad Max America, and you have a special book on your hands. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 11, 2019

    Undiscovered Country #2 is insane in a positive way with a look that's just so over the top. Add in a story where everything is open at this point and we have a series where anything and everything feels possible, like a vivid fever dream. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Dec 12, 2019

    'Undiscovered Country' #2 gives us more character development with a focus on Daniel. It's an immersive exercise in storytelling akin to how one eats an elephant: one bite at a time. Consider this a small bite of a much larger more ambitious story. There won't be anything wrapped up neatly within twenty-two pages so it's best to hunker down and take it all in one issue at a time. It should be worth it.     Read Full Review

    As the first arc continues to present readers with an understanding of what is happening and why, all of this may improve, but it's a significant hurdle for engaging with a narrative that still presents a plenty to fascinate us in the meanwhile. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Forrest C. Helvie Dec 13, 2019

    Scott Snyder and Charles Soule's make clear their concern about developing both the world and characters who inhabit it; unfortunately, most of this issue centers on such background development. As a result, there are few scenes that break up all of the expository, plodding flashbacks. Read Full Review

    This still a decent book, but the disparity between what it is and what it should be has only gotten wider since #1. Read Full Review
