    Fallen Angels #2 is a wonderfully meditative exploration of the worldly implications of Krakoa as well as the mutants who now harbor feelings that are simply not understood by those around them. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Nov 27, 2019

    Fallen Angels #2 works so well because it gives readers more of a glimpse into who Kwannon is. Hes taken what a groan-inducing change from the Hunt For Wolverine fiasco was and made it work out so very well because hes willing to put the work in on her. He also gives readers quick little glimpses into who Cable and X-23 are and their roles on this team. Kudranskis art makes the whole thing sing. His action scenes are dynamic and well laid out, and he does a great job with character work. Theres so much to like about this book. Its not the greatest thing ever, but its well crafted and an intriguing read. Read Full Review

    As disappointed as this reader was in the over-development of Kwannon at the expense of Cable and Laura, the story was still very entertaining, action-packed, and charged with character aggression as well as the writer's passion. Moreover, the art was fantastic and completely takes this series to an entirely new level. Fans, once this series hits its stride and focuses on the future, Apoth, and its connection to Xaviers masterplan, this series will really begin to take off. Just wait for the next issue!

    Hill and Kudranski are taking things slow here, and the final panelpromises some excitement next week. I'm all for character studies, andthis is definitely a step up from the first issue's missteps. There's still a lot of work to go before this becomes a title worthy of itscharacters or its creators, but the small steps are appreciated. Read Full Review

    Fallen Angels won't be for everyone, but if you're looking for a better understanding of who Psylocke really is, this is definitely worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 27, 2019

    I'm not a fan of the dialogue and the melodrama is pretty thick, but a solid art job does some of the heavy lifting here. I'm also quite not sure how this fits in with the current X-regime. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 27, 2019

    I wanted to like this series, but this second issue loses me. The dialogue can feel forced and clunky while the plotting is losing its focus too. The themes are so overtly written and on the surface, it doesn't read like a compelling introspection of the characters, but instead a force-feeding of ideas that seem basic and surface-level at best.

    This is not an interesting team, they do not have an interesting mission, but there is a nugget or two of an interesting idea here or there. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Matt Fischer Mar 31, 2020

    Hickman's Dawn of X is supposed to be a bright new morning for the mutant race. This feels like it's from the depressing mid-2000's. The line has its first dud. Read Full Review
