Professor X promised there would be no prisons on Krakoa. Sabretooth was the first in the hole, but now he welcomes five more mutants to his own private hell. What laws did they break? Are they ready for what they'll find? No. No, they're not.

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Mar 10, 2022

    Sabretooth continues to shine a spotlight upon the web of lies which Krakoa, the mutant paradise, was built upon as Professor Xavier and Magneto dispense injustice from their lofty council positions. This series is an essential read not just for fans of the X-Line that wanted to see more of this angle, but just comic book readers and the general public overall. An examination of the prison industrial complex and the way that our society allows those with power to treat others distilled through the X-Men lens is worth checking out. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 18, 2022

    Sabretooth #2 is such a great work. LaValle is working his metaphor and giving readers an exciting story, which is more than a lot of the current X-Men writers are capable of. Kirks art may get some complaints, but thats for people who dont really understand what this book is doing because elsewhere, its excellent. Sabretooth is turning out better than anyone expected.

    The violence and madness provide a sheen of fun, but once that fades there's still plenty to contemplate as Sabretooth battles one of the greatest horrors found in modern America. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Mar 9, 2022

    Overall, SABRETOOTH #2 reintroduces some old characters and paints SABRETOOTH in a unique light while making Xavier and the crew come across as the villains of the story. Its actually quite fascinating. Moreover, I left this issue more excited for the series than the last and find myself curious as to how SABRETOOTH and his crew are going to escape, if they can at all. Sure, there were some small minor missteps but nothing that totally destroys the narrative and is somewhat easy to overlook as you venture through the story. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless! Read Full Review

    Sabretooth #2 is a cleaner, clearer issue compared to issue #1 with a story that's easier to follow and presents a clear direction. That said, the supporting cast of mutants introduced in this issue are somewhat forgettable, and the demystified setup is somehow less intriguing. However, the art is strong from front to back.

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 9, 2022

    Sabretooth #2 seems to be jumping forward a bit too quickly, setting up the five mutant prisoners, and surprisingly changing the direction of the narrative. There are themes here worth exploring, but it's hard to gather what it's trying to say as it tries to do too much. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Quinn Mar 9, 2022

    While Sabretooth #2 is a very different issue from the first, shifting tone and accelerating the plot perhaps a tad too quick, this series is still setting up an interesting storyline and delving into characters we haven't seen much. Read Full Review
