    I liked this issue better than the last thanks to Nightcrawler's predicament forcing him into a tight spot emotionally. How will Nightcrawler do the right thing in a world that has outlawed the natural feeling of love? That's exciting and it's fun to see how the creative team squeezes Nightcrawler. Read Full Review

    AGE OF X-MAN: AMAZING NIGHTCRAWLER #2 is successful in that it's entertaining. The characters and the plotlines are intriguing but the execution is where this issue falls apart. Frigeri and Davis struggle to use art to tell a cohesive story. With so many complex plotlines going on, the art has to be strong enough to hold it all and, for AGE OF X-MAN: AMAZING NIGHTCRAWLER #2, it isn't. Still, that doesn't mean this issue isn't worth a read. If you're a Nightcrawler fan, this one is still a must-buy. Read Full Review

    Seanan McGuire and Juan Frigeri's The Amazing Nightcrawler keeps chugging along and mostly stays in the same lane as the debut. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 20, 2019

    Between troubles on the set and troubles of the heart, McGuire and Frigeri are giving Nightcrawler some fun obstacles to roll through, but without his flashy personal stylishness, the character feels a little flat on the page. No one wants to see a stoic Nightcrawler. His passion is part of what makes him Nightcrawler. If McGuire and Frigeri can start to bring that to the page a little bit more, Nightcrawler will feel a bit more himself as the series continues into its second half. Read Full Review

    Later that night, Kurt heads to where Meggan told him to go, only to be recognized by some sketchy girl telling him to go right through this door and it will blow his mind. When Kurt goes through the door he walks right into a basically a club where people can go to dance, kiss, and have some fun! Rule is to wear a mask so people don't know its you. Would be a good idea except as soon as Kurt gets in there, he recognizes someone who is already in a mask and his own appearance is not easy to miss. He freaks out and leaves the building as he poofs out on her again. Twice in one day. As he returns home, he enters his room to find none other than, Mystique telling that she is here to explain everything! Read Full Review

    Overall I was hoping this book would get better because it did show promise but unfortunately it was a huge let down. While it's not a terrible read it just has nothing exciting about it and the struggles Nightcrawler is going through just comes across as apathetic. A few of the other books in the event even though they are not good are important to the overall arcing story so they are a must read, this one though shows no sign of having any impact on the main story so you could skip it altogether if you wanted. Sorry Nightcrawler fans but this book is just so boring. Read Full Review

    Just like the first issue, Amazing Nightcrawler remains a strange question mark for the X-Men franchise. Read Full Review
