    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener Sep 11, 2019

    Gwenpool escaped her last misadventure by traveling off the pages and "flashbacking" her way to a better ending. But trapped in the Fantastic Four with no access to the page margins? It's gonna take some serious creativity.  Read Full Review

    I love the merc with a mouth… but I think I love Gwenpool just as much. When you put those two together I'm thrilled, twice the fun with no one feeling left out. If you haven't already jumped into Gwenpool… this is a great chance to get onboard. Beautiful art, writing that will have you laughing all the way and just a lot of fun. Grab a copy now.

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 11, 2019

    Another fun and chaotic experience with Gwenpool in the bag. Add in Deadpool, a raucous "sex sells" issue and slick visuals, and it's easy to see this as the funniest book on the stands right now.  Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Sep 11, 2019

    Gwenpool Strikes Back #2 is peak Deadpool rip-off-itude … but that is definitely not all that's going on. The confident creative team dives whole hog into the "LOL memes" style that Gwen, famously, doesn't care for. It's done so well, though, that we can enjoy the spectacle for what it is. It takes only a smidgen of faith to read on, certain that future twists will revisit the more complex Gwenpool we know and love and provide ironic context for this issue's absurdities.

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Sep 13, 2019

    A lot of this series could be interpreted as a commentary on the need to buy comics you love. And there is a certain point to that. The series with lower numbers (IE: Gwen's previous series) get canceled. And while that is a shame, it is also a fact of life. Unfortunately, the cancellation means something much darker for this quirky little lady" Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 14, 2019

    The wackiness and wordiness of the first issue is balanced out much better by adding Deadpool as a supporting character, making for a stronger issue overall. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Gabriel De Jesus Sep 18, 2019

    All in all, GSB continues to be an odd title. Its pop culture references (more in the first issue than this one) and humor constantly leaves me feeling that Im neither young or hip enough to be the target audience (do people still use hip?) Fourth wall breaking comics are not usually my cup of tea and something I feel can very easily be overdone. Read Full Review
