    Contagion #2 is perfect. It's got it all: there's action, there's some adventure, there's a dose of horror, a lot of heroes, and some unexpected turns. Read Full Review

    I both do and don't want to know where this series is going. It's worrying seeing such well known heroes drop at what is more or less just a touch. Just when you think they are making some progress, things take a turn and things seem to get exponentially worse. I don't know how long this series will run for… but there are still plenty of Marvel characters that can be brought in to help… as to whether they are able, that remains to be seen. If you like your superheroes with a dose of horror… you need to be reading this series! Read Full Review

    If youre looking for a straightforward, action-packed narrative thats fun and direct, this series and issue are for you. If you read comics for a bit more curiosity, thought, and substance under the surface of the narrative, then this issue and series may not be to your liking. As someone driven on a story that breeds discussion and character development, this issue didnt work for me this week and this critic left wanting more. Hopefully, more backstory, discussion, emotion, and development will come as this weekly tale continues to unfold. Read Full Review

    It was a comfortable read that tells a good story and showed great characterization of each hero presented. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Oct 11, 2019

    So, Contagion #2 has kind of an interesting horror/virus type thing going that is okay. But if you are an Iron Fist fan, then there is a lot more to keep you interested in this series. The art, while not bad, just doesn't seem to fit with what the story is trying to tell. If this was more of a high action-adventure story, it might fit better. It just doesn't seem to work with the more horror toned vibe of the series. Read Full Review
