    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Aug 15, 2019

    Overall, Unearth #2 is another great issue in an already amazing series. Since this issue is light on the grotesque " well, outside the pustules on the walls " I'm expecting more body horror as the series continues and we start to spend more time with the diseased. It's safe to say I'm strapped in for this ride and I can't wait for issue three. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Nick Couture Aug 14, 2019

    Dont expect Unearth to reinvent the wheel. However, it has the potential to go many unexpected places. With great art and a locked-in mood, if this is your aesthetic, this comic will very much be your thing. Read Full Review

    Once again the real winner is artist Baldemar Rivas, who's cartoonish style and fascinating usage of colors really helps the book cut loose in the visual department. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Christopher Egan Aug 15, 2019

    Plenty of creatures and fun concepts stock the shelves of this second issue, and while pretty to look at, the plot and ideas are derivative of many other horror and sci-fi properties. Read Full Review

    -I'm still enjoying this series way more than most others. It's a fun little horror series.

    -Both of the opening scenes are weird, creepy and mysterious in all the right ways.

    -I really like the art. It's not the most detailed stuff, but it's got a lot of personality and it's very engrossing.

    -These creatures are still fairly interesting, if unoriginal.

    -Heh. Both endings were great. I'm very intrigued for next issue which looks like it'll go to much more interesting places.

    THE BAD:

    -I'm still not sold on any of these characters. They more or less feel like vehicles to get to the next scare, unfortunately.

    -This comic definitely has some more

    I love the work of Bunn, but I think this isn't for me. Everything just seems lacking some detail.
