    Word Of The Nerd - Zina Hutton Dec 26, 2015

    Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #2 is a solid second issue for the series. I keep finding myself making ridiculously happy high pitched noises when I read and reread this issue because it's just super cute with characters you can really get behind. Read Full Review

    Overall, this issue lived up to the promise of the first issue and improved upon it by giving us a good idea of who Devil Dinosaur is, a super fun dinosaur on the run that you should not mess with unless you're Lunellabecause she's totally got everything under control. Read Full Review

    This book is such a great addition to the Marvel universe, specifically to the new generation of lady heroes. I'm really hoping we get a Kamala cameo soon. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Lauren Bullock Dec 25, 2015

    All in all I'd say the low points aren't a deal breaker; after all, not every moment can be perfect. What I'm really hoping for is to get back to those interpersonal and introspective moments that made issue #1 shine so bright. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Allen Thomas Dec 23, 2015

    This is a series Im definitely recommending to others and that Im happy to lend to my little sister, who is enamored with science experiments herself. I love seeing characters like Lunella because we truly do need more of them. Never underestimate the power of a smart young Black girl running through New York. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 22, 2015

    The second issue is fun, though has a bit of trouble standing on its own. The series still has lots of potential and a niche that's really needed in the comics world. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Dec 24, 2015

    The art and the writing are kid-friendly, but unfortunately, they lack the dramatic or comic depth to sustain appeal for teen or adult readers. However, this is only the second issue and that could change if the story shifted to expanding Lunella's ambitions and abilities. The main character still has star power, so she should be front and center. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 22, 2015

    It's only once we get to the final few pages of this story that this book starts to show some of its earlier promise again. Once Montclare and Reeder get past having Devil Dinosaur throw a tantrum, Bustos really shines, showing how expressive this dinosaur can be as he looks around for Lunella, staring sadly at the moon. It's these moments that show how deep Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur can be - and it's these moments that this book desperate needs to capitalize upon. We've already seen plenty of child geniuses in the Marvel Universe, and plenty of brainiacs trying to cure themselves before its too late. It's up to Montclare and Reeder to really figure out what makes this book tick - and they're quickly running out of time to do so. Read Full Review
