    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

    Inferno #2 (Jonathan Hickam, Stefano Caselli, David Curiel & VCs Joe Sabino) delivers on the promise of Hickmans X-Men #6 in this emotional, powerful, intrigue-filled issue that should have long-lasting ramifications for the X-World. Read Full Review

    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

    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

    It's still a stellar comic, but one that will likely frustrate readers with what could have been. Read Full Review
