    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 24, 2017

    The second issue of Iceman is just as delightful as the first, offering more of a grounded, personal look at the life of Bobby Drake, as a friend, a confidant and as a superhero. Read Full Review

    "Iceman" tries to do a lot, but succeeds most in its moments of emotional honesty. Read Full Review

    I have some qualms with this issue, but none of them are major. Iceman continues to be a fun read that rings true emotionally. Read Full Review

    Though the dynamic between Bobby and Kitty Pryde was a highlight along with Bobby's character development, the supporting plot lines were too dull to strengthen the issue. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Brian A. Madrid Aug 16, 2017

    From seeing issue #2, the Marvel Universe has made both Kitty and Bobby more grown up than from previous adaptations. Though the writers did keep Bobby's corky sense of humor intact. Not the most serious person in the X-Men family of mutants, but he manages to break the ice during tense situations(No pun intended there). As of now, Bobby has no one special in mind to begin a relationship. Kitty offers good advice about seeking out others for support and offers her friendship to him. Read Full Review

    A good issue, but this early on I wish there was a bit more characterization from the star of the series. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jun 22, 2017

    When compared to its solid debut, Iceman's latest X-ploits aren't quite so fully formed. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jun 21, 2017

    Written by a talented gay writer like Sina Grace, who isn't afraid to unpack the messiness of Iceman's coming out and personality while still letting him pose for selfies mid-battle,Icemanshould be one of Marvel's more compelling books. However, with its generic and uninspiring depiction of some of the flashiest (and soapiest) superheroes ever,Icemanpales in comparison to books that have a more distinct visual identity likeAmerica, Marvel's other book with an LGBTQ lead.

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jun 22, 2017

    Pencillers Edgar Salazar and Ibraim Roberson render the world of the story with more realism than Alessandro Vitti did in the debut but it's all very utilitarian and generic. They don't hurt the story but they don't elevate it at all either. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Columbus Comics Corner Jun 26, 2017

    Sina Grace does a good job of introducing new readers to Bobby Drake and at the same time closing chapters of his past. The main plot with Zach is lackluster, only there to get both Bobby and Kitty in the same room to clear the air. It's to bad editorial didn't comb over this book for any wonky dialogue that could come off-putting to certain readers. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Allen Thomas Jun 21, 2017

    However, taking everything into consideration, this issue took some of the promise of the first and made it a more challenging read. I hope things will look up for Bobby from here. Read Full Review
