    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 21, 2015

    Astonishing Ant-Man #2 was Spencer and Rosanos getting everything back on track. We're all caught up again, and Ant-Man's adventures are as entertaining as ever. They've got a great sad sack superhero story going here, with just enough positive character development and humor to make a truly well rounded story. Read Full Review

    Now, is that the cause of Lang being behind bars? We don't know. However, as bad as Scott is with his flaws, we see that others can be just as selfish. When you see the capacity in which the Hench App appears in this issue you're definitely going to be torn in your feelings. This book doesn't fail you on delivery of development for situations and characters with each issue. Roman and Spencer made me a HUGE Scott Lang fan with their iteration of him as a hero. Get this book folks. Get. This. Book. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jason Adams Nov 19, 2015

    The issue showcases another Hench-induced showdown between Scott and a low-level super-powered criminal, but this time involves a team-up with Darla Deering, a.k.a. Ms. Thing, who has a history with Scott from their Fantastic Four stint. The issue ends with Scott and Co. being hired on as her personal security, which will no doubt dictate the plot for at least the next few issues. In addition to all of that, we get some closure on Scott and Darlas short-lived relationship during Matt Fractions FF run. Once again, Spencer paints over these characters with a coating of failure as Scott and Darla accept that they were a terrible couple and amicably (awkwardly) stay split. Not everything in Spencers vision of the Marvel Universe has to be nice and perfect, and for a character like Scott Lang whos never had a life that glamourous, that seems to suit a series focused on him just fine.

    IGN - Levi Hunt Nov 19, 2015

    It's a bit too jokey at times, and the plot seems to slightly get away from the creators at times, but this is a fun issue that sets up some future fun and should be read by anyone wanting one last glimpse of that incarnation of the FF. Read Full Review
