    Overall this is a big step up from last issue, but only because all three stories had something to offer. As with all anthologies each issue is its own beast so I'm interested in what's to come from Original Sins…plural. Read Full Review

    Original Sins #2 isn't a terrible read nor is it essential. In fact, it doesn't really have anything to do with the main story of Original Sin aside from "Hey. This happened to the world. Now here's this other thing"". It's worth having for any Black Knight fan by far, worth skipping for any Howard the Duck fans, and Young Avengers fans will be in their comfort zone, confused yet hopeful and willing to go along for the ride. While Infinity suffered from too much of the main story being told in supplemental books, Original Sin seems to be going the opposite route by touching upon the core story just enough to be aware that it exists and no more. It would be nice if a Major Marvel Event could find the happy medium between the two and give us stories we can't get in the core Event and enhance it by giving us a different perspective of a story we could easily digest without the supplemental titles. Axis, you have been officially been put on notice. Read Full Review

    In the end, "Original Sins" #2 only has enough content to tangentially be considered a tie-in to the "Original Sin" series. Yes, technically it is an anthology, but realistically, it's a very skinny Black Knight comic with a Young Avengers back-up and a Howard the Duck advertisement. At a time when Marvel has a strong digital platform, these stories may have been better served as a pick and choose offering digitally rather than forcing readers into an all or nothing decision. Why not ignore the fact that the platform of "Original Sin" may have fallen by the wayside and simply call this series what it should be: "Marvel Comics Presents." Read Full Review
