    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Oct 27, 2021

    Inferno #2 is amazing. That's really all there is to it. It blows everything else out of the water on a script and art level and shows why Marvel can't replace Hickman with Duggan or anyone else. This is storytelling at its finest. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Oct 27, 2021

    Sadly, its issues like INFERNO #2 that make me wish this era wasnt coming to an end. Furthermore, it also makes me wonder where these stories were gradual as this X-MEN era was unfolding. Yet, Ill choose to be happy for what were getting now and excited for whats on the horizon. INFERNO is a must-buy series and issue 2 only helps bolster that statement even more. Dont wait head out over your lunch break and pick this bad boy up! Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless! Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Nov 3, 2021

    Inferno #2 continues to build to the end of the first Krakoan Age, revealing how the Quiet Council's secrets and lies may spell danger for the X-Men. I'm not sure where the next two issues will bring for the series, but knowing Hickman's previous work it'll more than likely end as it began with the X-Men undergoing a massive change.

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Oct 27, 2021

    In Inferno #2 the morally-gray leaders of Krakoa get their most pressing challenge of this era, and theyre forced to make a difficult decision. All of that is to say this is one of the more interesting X-Men comics, and a great second part for this event. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Dan Spinelli Oct 27, 2021

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Oct 27, 2021

    Overall, Inferno #2 accomplished its goal of filling in the gaps of how Destiny was resurrected. It also set the stage for the next phase of this Krakoan age. How will the three untouchables manage with a precog in their midst? How will their newly appointed ally take to all this deception? Leave it up to Destiny, I suppose" Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 27, 2021

    Inferno #2 is interesting as it feels like it has more in common with The West Wing than it does traditional X-Men comics. This is one of thinking and continued setup as the pieces of the puzzle come together for the final action that's to come. After such a setup, what's two more issues. Inferno #2 might seem like a bit of a bore but the interaction of the characters is impressive showing the X-Men as a political drama without the action might be more interesting than a showing of its flashy powers.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 30, 2021

    This issue gets down into the nitty gritty of actually having characters talk to one another to make things happen, and I live for that sort of storytelling. Everyone and everything feels very dynamic. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Oct 27, 2021

    Not so good for Krakoa! This series is definitely leading to some sort of schism between the mutants (After the other Schism? Another one?!) and recent solicits for the near future seem to suggest as much, but well see. Now would be the perfect time for the Krakoa experiment to show cracks right as Orchis is primed to make a breakthrough. Until next time! Read Full Review

    Merlyn Oct 27, 2021

    This isn't a bad issue but it's safe to say there are some HUGE plotholes that I can't ignore just because it's Hickman. So Charles and Erik know that Mystique is basically the biggest danger on Krakoa but they're somehow stupid enough not to have any contingencies against a shapeshifter that could impersonate them and get access to stuff she's not allowed to. Yeah, sorry, I can't pretend that makes any sense. These are two mature characters, they're not idiots, first thing they'd do is make sure Raven doesn't get away with that kind of stuff. Also, there's a huge error in art. Last issue "Magneto" has the black costume when he goes after the Cerebro helmet, here he's wearing the white one. This coming on top of the fact that last issue Hic more

    This is great so far. There's not much to say aside from everything is working here. If you have any sense, you'll be reading this. There is a tiny bit of concern in me that is worried how this event will wrap up. I know this isn't the end of the Krakoan era, but I hope this event has a finality to it.

    Loafy Trophy Oct 28, 2021

    There isn't a comic book writer on earth that does political intrigue better than Jonathan Hickman and this book has it in spades. Mystique's machinations were great and the way Hickman was able to pack so much emotion into the couple pages after she brought Destiny back really resonated. The chess match between Mystique/Destiny and the trio of Moira/Charles/Erik was my favorite part of the issue and introducing Emma as a rogue, and rightfully upset, element as well as Colossus as the loyal pawn has me hyped for the next issue. Everything here really clicks.

    Kalaoui Oct 29, 2021

    The tension is there by Hickman and the art is great by Caselli and Curiel. Skipping over some unexplained idiocies, this issue was worth the read as long as I purge the last year from my head. Moving right along to the next one.

    It was nice to see more of Destiny and Mystique. I wonder if this series will have insight into Professor X and why he is so much darker than most versions since HoX and PoX.

    The Batman Nov 24, 2021

    A slight step down from the previous issue but this slow burn and political intrigue is making this series a worthwhile investment.

    If you want to know the seriousness on [REDACTED] joining the Quiet Council at the end of this issue, look up an article on X-Force #24. It's about to get crazy up in Krakoa.

    Onomatopoeia Oct 27, 2021

    By the end of the issue, I found myself asking why did they offer Mystique a seat on the council in the first place? It was made very clear that Destiny was never to be resurrected, so why give her widow such a seat of power?

    I was also confused about what was going on with Sage. Is anyone able to clarify that?

    Another good issue. I'm just worried there won't be a good conclusion with just two more issues.

    I Review Comics Nov 28, 2021

    The promise of Jonathan Hickman’s X-Men inspired me to dip my toe back into Marvel Comic’s after a long layover. The House and Powers of X series were brilliant and seemed to be a jumping-on point for the comic line. Hickman reintroduced high concept storytelling to the X-Men and also presented fresh ideas that went well beyond the constant rehashes of popular storylines that were overdone a decade ago.

    After a year of a meandering and stalled storyline, I felt myself checking out of the X-Men again. It was pretty clear that something had gone wrong in the X-Office and that the core concept of Hickman’s House of X had been warped. I don’t want to get into the rumors swirling about the creative direction of these books. It more

    Meh
    Some bad ploting here, really boring. So all this time non telepaths could use cerebro. mystique is a awesome player, we have to believe on that even if her play with other council members was mostly awful.
    Emma feel bad when they manipulate her, but have no problems to manipulate others
