As the Infinity Stones come to Earth, so too comes the war for control over them. But none who wield the stones know the truth about the power they contain...or what it would take to bring them to their END. The nature of the universe itself hangs in the balance as we learn the answer to the question on everyone's lips since "Infinity Wars Prime": WHO IS REQUIEM? Gerry Duggan (DEADPOOL, INFINITY COUNTDOWN) and Mike Deodato Jr. (ORIGINAL SIN, OLD MAN LOGAN) look into the Infinite and bring the truth to light!

    AiPT! - Brian Clements Aug 15, 2018

    While I hold cautious optimism about this series considering the bang-up start it has had, I am concerned about how far it will be allowed to go.  Is this a permanent sea change for the Marvel Universe, or will we find in issue #6 that it was all some kind of Elseworld/Dallas dream sequence? Given what has happened already and the speed with which it happened, I hope we're seeing a real change in the future of the heroes involved as well as the larger Marvel Universe going forward.

    Infinity Wars #2 provides a well written flow of action, drama, and intensity with horrifically awesome artwork that intrigues the mind, pun intended. I highly recommend this saga CHECK IT OUT! Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ruston Fritcher Aug 16, 2018

    Part two of the Infinity Wars saga gives the readers more action and mystery. There is a nice setup for issues going forward. The art does not always fit the story being told, but it does always look good. This is a pretty good chapter to the story, and you should enjoy it enough to want to be invested in future issues.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 16, 2018

    Infinity Wars #2 is another good entry into this miniseries. Theres action, drama, and intensity. The art is good, the script is solid, and I came away from it feeling satisfied with what I read. This one earns a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Aug 15, 2018

    The issue continues the action packed pace of the latter half of the first issue and sets up a lot of what's been teased to come. It's a solid issue full of action and twists and is paying off as a solid “Infinity” event. Read Full Review

    411Mania - John Pumpernickel Aug 30, 2018

    While I'll be coming back for issue 3, the luster is definitely dimmed on the series but nothing that can't be fixed. Is this issue essential reading? No. And for a storyline this grand, that's not a good thing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 17, 2018

    Infinity Wars #2 was a step up from the first issue. Gerry Duggan made Gamora look like an absolute badass with how she took down the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. Unfortunately this issue was held back by some questionable story choices that dragged the epic potential of Infinity Wars. Hopefully with what the ending of Infinity Wars #2 teased the problems facing Marvel's latest event get fixed right away. Read Full Review

    No consequences, no drama. And that's the problem - so far, this series has had severalshocking moments - but no drama at all. Read Full Review

    Infinity Wars #2 feels like a big blockbuster,full of superheroes and big action, but is just an average story since nothing will stick. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Aug 16, 2018

    Infinity Wars #2 doesn't necessarily drum up a ton of excitement for the next issue, or this story in general. This isn't the finest work by Duggan or Deodato. For the love of God (DOOM), get this story off Earth already! Read Full Review

    Too much style over substance really undermines some solid cartoonings from him and distracts from the narrative. This event has already worn out its welcome. Read Full Review

    The second issue of Infinity Wars is almost all filler with very little killer, which does not bode well for the next several months of the story. Read Full Review

    I'm enjoying Duggan's style very much here and on board this crazy story until the wheels fall off(we'll see). Deodato's art and Martin' colors are top notch but some panels weren't clear which hindered the flow a bit.

    Artwork is great, story arc is pretty okay. Turk makes this much more interesting and their team-up could be something great.

    I actually don't know what happens next, Gamora with Infinity Stones and Loki whispering in her ear.

    Great twists and the overall story. Panels are still off at times, but the artwork is definitely better than I've expected it to be.

    OVERVIEW

    Infinity Wars #2
    a) Writing/Script= 5.5/10 (G. Duggan)
    b) Art= 8.5/10 (Mike Deodato)
    c) Colours= 8.8/10 (Frank Martin)

    Average= 7.6/10

    Three issues into this series (including the Prime issue) and i am already loosing interest in this series. There was nothing in this issue that really blew my mind. Writer Gerry Duggan also didnt do any great work in keeping us feelling anticipated for the next issue.

    Let me start off with the art, which is the positive side of this review. The art by Mike Deodato is phenomenal, especially on Thanos. The art is so on point and it was the main reason why i loved the Infinity Wars Prime #1 and Infinity Wars #1. It kept this book alive and hon more

    I don't know if Duggan know what he do. Because I certainly not understand a bunch of what I read. Like what happen with Turk. That seems cruel. I have the same feeling with Gamora than with Psyloke in Claremont hand. To damn powerfull. I understand that he want her to have each stone. I understand that she is the best killer in the univers. And she prove it by killing Thanos. But there, I don't see Gamora. Or even a Gamora controlled by Thanos. I see a bunch of crap ... Because the fighting beyond the one lead by Gamora made no sense. The one dying wasn't tragic, he even correct the only tragic death sadly.

    Cover - The connecting variant. I feel like this will be one of the only pleasure I have with this title. Nice but not rela more

    So far this is very confusing. The saga of Gamora trying to retrieve the other part of her soul is just not very compelling.
    With fhe previous miniseries the story feels like it has been going on forever. The character of Turk and the villaiins made no sense and felt like filler. Too many characters and too little development. Why bring back Adam Warlock if he is hardy going to speak?
    The most interesting part is the Loki subplot.
    Mike Deodato is a great artist but totally wrong for a cosmic book. His art is too pictorial, realistic and earthy.
    A dissapointment so far.
