    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Dec 13, 2021

    The Thing #2 features an earth-shattering battle between Ben Grimm and a new enemy while introducing a new friend and love interest for the Fantastic Four's powerhouse. I'm looking forward to the next issue, as I'm sure Mot isn't done tormenting Ben just yet. Set your clocks it's clobberin' time. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Dec 13, 2021

    Although the characterization and art in The Thing #2 are beyond reproach, the plot itself feels disjointed from its previous issue. Not a total miss, but definitely enough of a baffling choice in terms of plot progression to give pause. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 13, 2021

    The Thing #2 is a good issue that's visually exciting and action-packed. Fans of fantasy adventures will enjoy what Mosley is up to even if it's a bit confusing as to what it all means at this point in the story. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 21, 2021

    There's no real explanation of the "when" of it all and the story has dreamlike elements that make me wonder if anything is what it seems, but the art is interesting and the coloring makes the show. I'd be interested in more of this. Read Full Review

    BGCP - Andy MacGregor Dec 17, 2021

    Walter Mosley gives another enjoyable instalment to the Ever-Lovin Blue Eyed Thing. It's always interesting to see how a character who is such an integral part of a group, holds up in a stand-alone story. And Mosley certainly gives The Thing his own stage to which he can shine. Not forgetting Tom Reilly and Jordie Bellaire in the art department, whose work give the book a certain retro feel and a throwback to the silver age of comic books. A decent read to pass the time.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Dec 15, 2021

    The Thing #2 is like a bizarre fever dream from the deep recesses of a deranged child's mind. It's either so esoteric that it escapes the comprehension of the average mortal, or it's a work of pure chaotic insanity. I beg you to read it simply to marvel (no pun intended) at it with your own eyes. Read Full Review
