Something is very wrong with Daimon Hellstrom. And that's saying something for the son of Satan. The only one who might be able to help is Daimon's sister, Satana - but she's no angel. Demons, debauchery and decapitation abound as Asgard's X-Force takes on Las Vegas!

    Strikeforce #1 showed immense potential, but #2 truly delivers on it. Read Full Review

    Peralta's art does a great job of matching the light, but edgy tone of the story. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Oct 24, 2019

    The minute I saw the cover to this issue, I knew that Strikeforce #2 was going to be excitement from start to finish. There is never a wrong time to take us back to Las Vegas to indulge in the demons, debauchery and action. Well, let's just say it how it is, decapitations. Because with a team like this? You love the action for the lack of restraint they tend to use. Read Full Review

    Now This what I was hoping for in a Strikeforce series! After a very slow start, issue two really hits the mark! Great character moments, with Jessica Drew stealing the show! Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Oct 24, 2019

    Strikeforce #2 felt more “complete” than the first issue. The writing is a little tighter and feels more “comfortable” with these characters and the direction of the story. The art also conveys a more settled approach as well. The change in colorist for me really helped the series find that horror tone. While not perfect, Strikeforce #2 greatly improved upon the first issue and the more I think about Strikeforce #2 the more I like it. This is a great cast of different Marvel heroes and the creative team seems to be settling into this series quite well after the mixed first issue. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Oct 23, 2019

    This was a solid second issue that continues the adventure of the #1, but it needs to get a clear direction. The art is spectacular and is carrying the atmosphere and keeping it fromfeeling like a stale team-up title. With the cliffhanger, perhaps the story will start to pick up. Especially given who graces the cover of the appropriately named next issue, DOOM. Read Full Review

    The best part of the issue is without a doubt Strikeforce's members and their interactions with one another. The writer, Tini Howard, picked some pretty interesting characters to team up and has a good handle on all of their characterizations. Read Full Review

    This was still jumbly, I dunno.

    I loved everything about this issue. The art in particular was amazing. If you pay attention to the characters in the background who aren't talking while others are - lots of great moments.

    Also, Jessica Drew remains the best.

    Strikeforce 2 was definitely a step back from issue 1, as a lot less happens and the Vridai have yet to distinguish themselves from the Skrulls. Thing about it, the Vridai are exactly the same as the Skrulls and while I’m reading this I can’t help but think that Howard is just writing Secret Invasion all over again. Anyways, Howard writes Jessica and Wiccan fantastically, and Peralta’s art was great. Oh, and of course Angela and Satana kissed. Just of course they did. Everybody is gay now

    Comics like this are dragging me around to the opinion that making Jess Drew a mother was a strategic error. Writers don't want to ignore that fact, but these ham-handed "have I mentioned I'm a mom today" lines aren't much of an improvement.

    The second issue is certainly more linear and has a greater pace than the debut but something is still not quite clicking for me. I’m certainly not giving up on Strikeforce as it is fun and has a great premise but it just feels inconsequential.

    Nothing wrong with it being just a bit of a romp per se, but we have been advised within the story by Blade, and by the marketing team for the book, that this is terribly important end of world stuff and that the stakes are excruciatingly high, and sadly that element is mostly conspicuous by its absence.

    For example, Jessica Drew has some great one-liners this time around which are fairly funny, but this approach coupled with Blade’s later rebuke about he more

    This was fine. I'm surprised Mephisto didn't show up.
