    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Aug 25, 2022

    A.X.E.: Judgment Day #2 is a wonderfully paced action comic that completely changes the tenor of this event by the end. Gillen, Schiti, and Gracia do a bang up job. This events first issue was brilliant, and this one is somehow better than that, which speaks to just how well this creative team is doing. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Aug 12, 2022

    A.X.E.: Judgement Day #2is the comic book equivalent of a blockbuster with brains, as it continues to flesh out the conflict between the three factions. Now that the meaning behind the series title is revealed, the Avengers, X-Men, and Eternals have entered an entirely new conflict - and the rest of the Marvel Universe may pay the price.

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Aug 10, 2022

    Kieron Gillen and Valerio Schiti are giving us a popcorn big blockbuster with this mini, but theres a little hiccups that detract from the rest of the story. It kinda feels like Marvel should have tapped Al Ewing to co-plot this event. Even with these critiques, its still nice to see the Eternals elevated status in the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    The series is turn on its head in this issue. It's a fun story, it looks great, and the twist on the final page promises to turn this already excellent event into something wholly unique. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Aug 10, 2022

    A.X.E.: Judgment Day #2 builds on the first issue with a new wave of attacks against Krakoa on a massive scale. The art and action are all great, and except for pacing speedbumps in the first and second act, the issue does exactly what it needs to unleash the dogs of war. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Aug 10, 2022

    A.X.E.: Judgement Day #2 is a solid second issue with an ending that really shakes up the event. It sends it in an unexpected direction but one that makes sense based on the title. Where it takes things overall, who knows, but so far, this might be Marvel's best major event in years. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 10, 2022

    There is no time to rest in A.X.E.: Judgment Day #2 as Druig's set The Hex to take out the mutants once and for all. This led to an action heavy second chapter to A.X.E.: Judgment Day that is a real showcase of the talents of Valerio Schiti and Marte Gracia. The different plot elements Kieron Gillen develops gets us to where we need to get to so this event truly involves the entire Marvel Universe not just one group. If things keep going this way A.X.E.: Judgment Day could very well be one of the best Marvel events we've had in quite some time. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Aug 10, 2022

    All of the tie-ins for Judgment Day have related to a very specific event in the first issue and the reason for this slow acceleration becomes abundantly clear this week when the real stakes of the event are revealed. The final few pages alone reignite any diminished interest caused by the first issue's familiar stakes; what happens here will leave readers with plenty to consider and opens the door for an event far different than what many of us have grown cynical over.

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Aug 10, 2022

    I think Gillen has an interesting opportunity here, reflecting on current events through super-fantastical cosmic shenanigans in an otherwise superfluous comic book crossover. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Aug 10, 2022

    A.X.E. JUDGMENT DAY #2 continues exactly where issue one left off, provides little growth until the final page reveals, and clutters the comic with heavy dialogue and gaudy page design. Read Full Review
