    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison May 11, 2018

    I've never cared much for X-Men, X-Force or any of the other hundreds of X-titles. Yet after two issues, I am hooked on Domino. I can't wait to see what Issue Three has in store! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson May 12, 2018

    Domino #2 continues to be a fantastic read with excellent art from Baldon and Aburtov and exceptional writing from Gail Simone. This is a creative team who clearly loves the characters and are having immense fun with this book and that comes right off every page. Domino #2 does well to maintain the high standard coming from the majority of mutant-related books coming from Marvel at the moment Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long May 9, 2018

    Domino is a breath of fresh air in a world of Big Two events that can, at times, seem stale. This is the kind of issue that makes you excited to read comics, and its time to get on the Domino train. Read Full Review

    In the end, this book builds upon a good first book and is developing into a terrific story. Buy this book, and consider yourself lucky for doing so. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose May 14, 2018

    There's a wonderful streak of vulnerability at the core of Gail Simone and Dave Baldeon's sophomore issue of Domino, a sensibility that not only gives this adventure story some tension and weight, but also makes the title character feel incredibly well-realized and endearing. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 10, 2018

    Apparently I didn't have to worry so much about Domino's gal-pals, as from the end of this issue it doesn't look like they'll be sticking around that long. While Domino appears to have plenty of friends, including Amadeus Cho and Deadpool who both have nice cameos here, it looks like it's up to Domino to put things right. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 10, 2018

    Domino #2 follows up well on the first issue. Its slower and has the weird character accompaniments, but the overall product is solid. Gail Simone doesnt disappoint, and Baldeon and Aburtov do good work on the visuals. This one gets a recommendation. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    Domino is still fun and the storyline deepens in the second issue, but I think the comic is a little overstuffed with story beats and artwork. Read Full Review

    Though it reads like a segue between intro and whatever comes next, this issue delivers a number of good goofs and visual gags -- along with a nice dose of both Deadpool and Amadeus Cho. Read Full Review

    I loved Issue 2 of this book. The story is strong. Art from Baldeon continues to find that great balance between sexy and grounded. Some might find there is a bit too much dialogue and explanation of powers when it concern Domino but many should remember that not everyone has followed this character in X-Force or her solo mini-features. Domino as a person is already taking shape and her anti-hero status and humor are done wonderfully by Gail Simone. Simone's style really lends its self well to Domino.

    My only knock against the book is that I don't understand why Cho is in this book. I am not sure if that was an attempt to build up one or both characters but that was the most out of place to me. That aside I like the story and mo more

    Gail Simone is one of the best writers in comics and Dimino is a great fit for her. Simone has Domino narrate the story and she really makes the character relatable, charismatic, vulnerable and powerful.
    There is a good mystery set up with the antagonist and adding Diamondback and Outlaw as part of the supporting cast is genius. Is this Marvel’s answer to Birds of Prey? Hope this goes the distance.

    Gail Simone brings a lot of heart to the Domino character. There is even a heart to heart chat between Neena and Wade that was lacking in Deadpool's self titled that recently saw him reflecting on his relationship with everyone. David Baldeon makes action look great. There is no confusion as to what is happening and Domino looks terrific doing it. It makes this a surprisingly catchy title. This issue continues to show how and why Domino lost her powers in the last issue. She has an interesting connection to the antagonist where he losses and gains his youthful vigor based on her luck or lack there of respectively. There are a lot of fun moments that I really enjoyed. Domino's powers making everybody win on a Casino yacht. A surprising cameo more

    Domino is rattled by threats external (the Topaz deal) and internal (is one of her friends betraying her?). Solid character insights, another brilliant merc gig - one that deserves more space, in fact - and superb art all make this delightful. Balanced against that, the pacing is still disjointed and the script machine-guns out a surplus of good ideas instead of polishing just a few into greatness. The overall level of quality is still very high, and there's far more enjoyable audacity than nitpicking material here.

    The Topaz Deal is sketched out more fully here. I like that the most obvious inspiration - the Picture of Dorian Gray - isn't name-checked directly. Yet.

    Not a bas story. Simone try to make us care for domino. She show her torn with doubt about who could have betray her.
    I read it with a smile when she fight alone the bad guy in the part, amadeus didn't even have to turn Hulk.
    Or when deadpool wait with the poppy.
    I really enjoyed the end. But and this is a huge one. I'm not in.

    Cover - Nice but not connected. 1/2
    Writing - She make a very touching moment with Spidey & then when she tell she is still scared. And the character as well used. But I didn't find it enough. 2.5/3
    Arts - I like it. That put some fun time in it. And domino is very beautiful. 3/3
    Feeling - This was my last issue (Yeah even with the cliffanger) 1/2
