    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Mar 20, 2019

    Unlike the first issue, which seemed to be trying too hard to be The Vision, with this issue the series has clearly found its own voice. Meet the Skrulls is an excellent mashup of sci-fi, espionage, and family drama, and is shaping up to be a must-read part of the Marvel Universe. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 20, 2019

    Meet the Skrulls started with a strong first issue, but this second issue builds on the first and really opens things up. You don't Meet the Skrulls by accident. You're meant to cross their path. Read Full Review

    Once again we get another issue with no narration, no clue if this is what the writer is known for but it isn't an issue with this issue, everything was real straight and forward. Really enjoying what we get with Alice, Madison, and the dad Carl. Still wish had more information on the mom, Gloria. I will give Niko and Robbie this, they really do one great job as a team! If you weren't already invested in the family, you would be invested due to the cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Mar 21, 2019

    Meet the Skrulls #2 was a solid entry into this mini-series even though it felt a little short in the story department. I am still enjoying the series and it has me interested to see where it is going with these characters. Henrichon delivers some really solid art throughout the entire issue. The spy-thriller tone coupled with a little family drama works surprisingly well and I do feel myself becoming a bit more attached to these characters with each and every issue. Read Full Review

    Robbie Thompson is setting up a nice little family of Skrulls who are trying to handle their business on Earth (not Prime but maybe Ultimate Universe?) while dealing with a pesky little hunter. It makes me root for the bad guys. It makes you question motives all around. Especially for the the 2 teenage daughters. Great job Robbie on the story. But to me this wouldn't work without great art to assist and guide the story. Niko Henrichon is fantastic from his angles to compositions that guide the flow to his great facial expressions that guide the moods. Great colors by him as well with an assist from Laurant Grossat and i couldn't tell who did what so that's great job done there!!

    I feel like this came out of nowhere and now it's suddenly a must read. Somehow, I adore and despise these characters at the same time.

    Meet the Skrulls 2 is just as fabulous as the last issue. The reason this series is so good is the little things: the perfectly timed flashbacks that tell us who this family is, the flashbacks that make us feel empathy for Carl, the Tony Stark cameos, the Secret Invasion nostalgia, and the beautiful art.

    Alice finally gets on board her family's espionage business, but her continued public shape-shifting draws the Skrull-hunter dude right to her. This script has a nice crosscut structure; very suitable for a thriller. Dad's deep disappointment in Alice is a crushing scene, but it makes it hard to get a read on the characters -- is there actually anybody here we can root for?
