    It's just a flat-out fun story that's a little heart-pounding at times, and it's going to get better as it goes along if his previous work is any example. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Mar 5, 2014

    Too often we see new superhero teams magically come together. With incarnation of the New Warriors, Chris Yost is taking the time to present a scenario which will potentially bring them all together against a common threat. This might limit some of the interaction we would normally get in a team book but it gives the series a feeling that Yost is looking at the big picture rather than rushing the story along. Marcus To's art is always great to see. He gives his characters a youthful zeal that cranks up their enthusiasm and the tone of the book. It's refreshing to see a relaunch series that truly feels new instead of more of the same. It's time to "get your war on" with the New Warriors. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Mar 6, 2014

    New Warriors #2 is exactly the right kind of release for this modern landscape. Add in the players behind it and we have an entry level book that deserves to find an audience. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Mar 7, 2014

    Marcus To's clean cartooning always produces handsomely rendered character and clean, vibrant action sequences and "New Warriors" is no exception to that fact. To is one of the most reliable artists in comics and his approach remains true, giving the proper gravity to the new role that the New Warriors are looking to carve out for themselves in the Marvel Universe.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Mar 5, 2014

    Overall, issue #2 of New Warriors is an alright transition from the first issue. Not to say that the story is dull, or uninteresting, but there are definitely ways in which it can change to avoid losing readers in all the action. We need to be able to take a step back and be able to process everything that is occurring without being dragged from one fight to the other. Development of teams is a process and a little more time could be put into each of their parts in this story to bring focus and understanding. Otherwise, New Warriors is still a book worth following if you want to know what the future has in store for them. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Mar 5, 2014

    Marcus To has been wowing comic fans for many years now, and he continues that trend in this new series. His character designs are always a pleasure to look at, and his action is never hard to follow. His style is both classic and fresh and it fits well with all of the fun superheroics on display in this book. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Derek Baker Mar 6, 2014

    Yost and To are a great team for a series like New Warriors. They have what it takes, but the noobs are going to need a little something extra. At the moment, there are so many great comics. Yost needs to find a hook to reel everybody in. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Mar 6, 2014

    Where last issue benefitted from having four separate adventures, this story is bogged down by redundant Evolutionaries and half-hearted battles. The character work continues to shine, especially visually, but this month New Warriors isn't quite worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 8, 2014

    If you're going to recreate a superhero team for a new comic, please come up with stories that actually have something to do with that team. From a company producing nearly a dozen different Avengers titles, and character-prominent books like Hawkeye and Moon Knight, they can't just sit back and produce generic superhero mush.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 7, 2014

    "New Warriors" #2 doesn't do much to dazzle the reader. There's plenty of action and a touch of intrigue, but at this point, readers are either going to be in or out. Yost doesn't mold any of the characters enough in this issue to make them likeable or identifiable unless readers already have a predisposition for the characters. That said, the creative team crafts a solid plot that is drawing these characters together in classic team-building fashion. These first two issues do the job of putting the ingredients on the table, now it's time to see what happens when Yost, To, Curiel and Caramagna begin mixing them up and really start cooking.
