...and enchanted hammers! The Exiles land in Asgard just in time to aid Valkyrie in a fight against the fire demon Surtur! But the Lord of Ragnarok is the least of their problems. The Time-Eater is hot on the team's heels, and when he takes Asgard, no Valhalla awaits Valkyrie or her new friends. Good thing they're about to pick up a Wolverine! And he's got red on his claws. The mystery of the stolen pies starts here as Blink completes her new team of multiversal champions!

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 28, 2018

    Exiles #2 is another highly entertaining read for this new take on the team. The characters are likable, the narrative is bizarre, fun, and fast-paced, and the art is great. This one gets another strong recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    There's still far more to love than dislike in this issue, but if the pace doesn't increase soon then minor flaws may grow to be major ones. Read Full Review

    GWW - Deron Generally May 1, 2018

    The end of the issue sets up the series well. Ahmed has crafted an interesting story with characters that have backstories and motivations that are worthy of exploring. The art by Rodriguez is well done with a retro feel that works with the time travel theme of the book. It will be interesting to see what chances are taken and stories are told now that the players are in place. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Apr 25, 2018

    Two issues in and I'm ready to tap out but like previous volumes, I'm not sure this is for me. And that's ok to say. It's not bad, it's just not my cup of tea. Things are picking up a bit so I'll give it until the end of the first arc but so far, we've seen this creative team do better. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, the overarching plot is doing little to compel me, but the character work is strong enough to keep me onboard for now. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jeremy Joanes Apr 29, 2018

    Issue two still suffers from some pacing problems and readers may feel like the plot is somewhat meandering, but the characters are still fun to read and, with the inclusion of Lil Wolvie and Valkyrie, shows that the comic is focused more on character interaction than deep storytelling. Hopefully, when all the members are more settled in the story will shine as much, but, as of right now, the comic is still fun to read and to look at. Read Full Review

    You can't deny that EXILES #2 is a fun ride even if it does maintain a repetitive narrative throughout the chapter. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Robert Reed Apr 29, 2018

    Exiles #2 introduces both Valkyrie and Wolvie to the team and both characters shine in their debuts. While the color art doesn't quite match the rest of the book, Exiles #2 still proves to be a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Apr 25, 2018

    In six months' time, we'll look back on this issue as either the misstep where a great series nearly left the rails or the jump-the-shark moment that led to a quick (and rightful) cancellation. I have faith in the creators' talents. I see the potential of the premise. I like the plot so far. I'm pulling hard for the first option. Considering Exiles #2 on its own, though, I can't deny the disappointment delivered by its cardboard characterization. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 28, 2018

    This comic has no heart. It's all long, drawn-out exposition about a cast of characters that mean nothing to each other or to the reader. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Apr 29, 2018

    The whole addition of the cartoon element was a letdown, in what would have otherwise been a vast improvement on the last issue, sorry to say. Read Full Review
