Despite the fact that they've gone their separate ways, Cloak and Dagger will always remain connected to one another -- but Dagger has learned that there's a force even more corrosive than villainy to her relationship with Cloak: mistrust. And things don't get any better when the murders Dagger has been investigating continue...with victims who look like they've had the life sucked out of them.

    This is a fun, fast-paced book whose noir surface hides a surprising amount of psychological depth. Read Full Review

    Cloak & Dagger #2 pulled no punches when what started out as space between the two has pushed into conflict when neither know how to talk to the other anymore. Mistrust is indeed their enemy when emotions run high and leaving very little room for the kind of compromise that saves lives. Read Full Review

    Dennis Hopeless has done an amazing job of really unpacking something as simple as a bad break up and allowing that concept to grow into a full blown superhero series with horror and crime elements. Mistrust is the main idea of this book. How can trust someone willing to let you starve and how can you trust someone you think is always on the edge of being horrible? Dennis seems more comfortble writing the dialogue and world of Dagger while just being more about the pain and image of Cloak. That is not uncommon but it would be nice to see Cloak with a support network, but in the end Cloak's loner status makes him more of an unknown and his complete reliance on Dagger is something that helps create the tension of the book. Loved this issue.

    The Cloak & Dagger relationship is complicated by the introduction of a third player, Grey. This installment sets up a lot of interesting mysteries about this triangle, but the pace is still slow enough to frustrate. The colors take the "light-dark-gray" theme a little far. The good news is that art is otherwise still very powerful.
