    A-Force is quickly turning into one of my favorite comic books, not because they’re all women, and not because there’s good action in the storyline (both are true), but because the book itself is always aesthetically pleasing, and written in such a way that it pushes me to keep reading. Upon first looking at issue #1, I knew I was going to like this series, because it just makes me want to read it. If you haven’t started the series yet, get on it, man! Read Full Review

    A-Force continues to be a prime example of not selling the women of Marvel short; highlighting the strengths of this new team. Read Full Review

    Overall, A-Force #2 is a great team book with well-developed characters and a plot that entices you to keep reading. I can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Jul 1, 2015

    The idea of an all-female superhero team, essentially a female Avengers, is one which appealing to many, enough to make this series one which will be revamped beyond the end of the crossover. In the meantime this second issue salvages and reuses what seemed a bit stunted in the first issue and gives it a new direction. It is maybe not as imaginative as the creative team could have gotten with these characters, but this is still a necessary series for the wider story arc, one which explains the inner workings of the system which will presumably be quickly torn down.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 2, 2015

    Though not quite as bright and outwardly appealing as the first installment was, A-Force has a solid second issue that reveals more of the problems plaguing the area – both with the rifts and the way the society works. The cast is large enough that most everyone gets their moments, several with good quips that stand out or just expressions that says a lot, but it also means that we don't get a lot of really meaningful material. Most of what we get comes from Nico and the newcomer as Nico rambles on about things, but even there it's still somewhat superficial. But the book is a smooth and fun read with a great cast performing mostly as you'd expect, just with a few tweaks for the concept of the event series overall. While it won't get me to read the book when it launches post-Secret Wars, I'm definitely enjoying what we get here in this otherworld. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jul 3, 2015

    "A-Force" #2 appears to be a straightforward superheroine adventure on the surface but, as the pages turn, Bennett, Wilson, Molina, Yeung, Wong, Martin and Petit make it quite clear this isn't a straightforward anything. The mystery of the new arrival and whether or not the portals are hers would be enough but, embedded in the policies of Battleworld and the surrounding bureaucracy of it all, this story gets more personal. Easily dismissed as a gimmick, "A-Force" is anything but, packing in strong characters, smart characterization and wonderful artwork. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jul 3, 2015

    I think the series has tons of potential - strong art, lots of great characters, new and interesting heroes - but it needs to move forward, and it needs to keep its characters straight. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Jul 2, 2015

    Other than the awkward fit of the style of the series and its aim of introducing a new ongoing within the framework of a tie-in, A-Force continues to be a fun, exciting and action-packed story with an intriguing central mystery to explore. It's more than good enough to shut up any detractors that an all female team wouldn't work. Here's hoping A-Force is here to stay. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jul 2, 2015

    The first issue of A-Force provided a fine mix of boisterous action and engaging character work, all of which effectively tied into the larger Battleworld picture. Issue #2 offers much of the same, C. Willow Wilson and Marguerite Bennett both focusing the direction of the main narrative as they expand their characters place within it. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Jul 2, 2015

    A-Force is a title that would be on the top of the heap were it not for its Secret Wars origins. Just as Spider-Woman began to soar when it was divorced of the Spider-Verse tie-in, Marguerite Bennett and G. Willow Wilson's showcase for Marvel's strong top-tier female leads is precisely the team that the world needs right now - it's just hampered a bit by the fact we know their status quo on Battleworld is to be short-lived.

    Comicsverse - Jamie Rice Jul 1, 2015

    Overall, the second issue ofA-FORCE isn't quite as good as the first. It gets bogged down with SECRET WARS plot continuity, but the art is beautiful and the cuteness of our new superhero needs to be seen. Let's hope that all of this plot is just laying the groundwork for a better story in the third issue with more answers about our mysterious new heroine. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Jul 3, 2015

    There's more to be disappointed with than to be intrigued with here. There are too many mysteries at play for our attention, with not enough to give us a grounding in the first place. There seems to be a focus on certain key players, but with countless others not actively contributing, it's diluting what could be a really important emotional connection and taking up too much space for what could really allow for more things to breathe.
