    Wolf #2 is an effective and entertaining second chapter in the series. Ales Kot does a great job building not only the world, but the characters who inhabit it. Anita forms a nice foil for Wolfe, and the interaction between the two is entertaining to watch. Matt Taylor's artwork nicely captures the look of Los Angeles while seamlessly blending in the supernatural, and Lee Loughridge's palette is a perfect fit for the series.Wolf#2is a nice balance between horror and southern California detective crime and fans of both genres will have a blast reading it.

    After a disjointed opening issue it's with some relief that chapter two proves a far more streamlined affair, showing direction, character development and deepening mystery. The big bad Wolf might yet prove to be a good guy after all. Read Full Review

    This is a really amazing series that caught my attention from issue #1. Wolf is a series that pushes the boundaries of storytelling and artwork. Kot and Taylor stretch the word “genre” to its limit, and show us what happens when they do it. This is definitely one to stick around for. Read Full Review

    One of my favourite elements of the comic is the way that the setting comes across so strongly, it's very much as important to the narrative as any of the characters and just as distinctive. LA " a city already defined by its unreality " is the perfect setting for a story focused on myth. It just seems like you're peeling back the skin of the city to reveal the nastiness crawling underneath. This world doesn't seem entirely alien, just particularly focused on the unusual details that most people prefer to ignore" like the swirling dead being carried away into the sky by the Santa Ana winds.

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Aug 22, 2015

    Its the Anita Christ character that keeps me coming back. She works so well you ignore the obvious pun. Shes a mystery, a deadpan Wednesday Adams type. Freddie Chthonic is another welcome addition. His white-boy MC act and goofy facial tentacles are surprisingly endearing. Artist Matt Taylors great at drawing the magic and architecture of L.A. but flubs the occasional face, giving Wolfe a wonky skull more than once. Read Full Review

    A solid second issue, one that focuses more on character building as opposed to pushing the narrative forward. A good mixture of supernatural intrigue and biting humour. Read Full Review

    Wolf manages to be frustrating for what it withholds, while simultaneously engaging for the very same reasons. Read Full Review

    The dialog is smooth for the most part but the plot is portioned out in small measures. I found myself having to flip through issue one to see if I missed anything. My pros are the same as last issue. The art is stiff but attractive, the cover is excellent. It is a handsome book. I also really dig the paper stock they use. I do not hate this book at all but in all honesty if I were not reviewing the title I would not be continuing past issue 2. I found myself staring at the ad for Tokyo Ghost and wishing that title had been chosen for me instead. Read Full Review

    The chances of me reviewing the next issue of Wolf or Wolfe are very slim. I didn't enjoy this issue at all and it basically ruins anything I might have liked from the first issue. I'll still check out the issue just on the off chance that it does something, but now I'm seeing how predictable and researched this entire story is and it's not interesting. The main character has his head way up his ass proving he's cool rather than doing anything and the plot is just hanging back letting him do his thing. With this issue it's the equivalent of four issues doing nothing so if the next one can move the plot forward, so be it, but if not then I'm not a glutton for punishment and will gladly dump this title.
