    The Sentry draws you in like a spider to its web and doesn't let go. If you're looking for something different in the world of superhero comics, you'll love this. Read Full Review

    While the first issue was excellent in its execution of simple storytelling devices and bringing everyone on board, this issue excels by upping the stakes and layering plot twists with an exceptional craft. Where Jeff Lemire takes us next is anyone's guess but I'm fully on board for this ride. Read Full Review

    I liked it. I'm willing to check out issue 3, if only so I can find out who Cranio might be. It's obvious Billy knew who his real world counterpart was. As I understand it, each of the characters in Bob's make-believe Sentry world were based on real people in the real world. Billy was actually once Scout, while Jenny was actually Sentress. The issue answers some of the questions from the first issue but also gives us way more to ponder, such as Billy, given his somewhat venomous attitude in issue 1. I can see where he would be the one who is plotting against Bob Reynolds. All he wants is to matter again, missing his one arm can't be helping matters for him, and seeing Bob run to the real heroes like Doctor Strange and Iron Man over him has to hurt. Read Full Review

    For someone who doesn't know a ton about the Sentry, Lemire is gradually introducing elements to the character and explaining the inner workings of Bob and his supporting cast. With issues dedicated mostly to the "not so super" Bob, Lemire is making them entertaining, fast-paced, and a ton of fun. Now, with the roof ripped clean off this sucker, I'm excited to see where it goes next. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jul 28, 2018

    Sentry #2 is another compelling issue, bringing the dreary world of the Golden Guardian to the reader in an almost gut-punch fashion. You cant help but feel for the Sentry, even as he shows varying degrees of selfishness and irresponsibility. Mix that with some great art from Jacinto, Cassara, and Beredo, and you have a book worth recommending. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Although Reynolds' downward spiral was all too predictable, a twist at the end is big enough to salvage this issue from mediocrity. Read Full Review
