    AIPT - Megan O'Brien Feb 15, 2023

    Ewing's expansion of pre-established but underdeveloped plotlines makes the story richer and more captivating. Also, he understands both the lead character and the supporting cast very well. They all feel like the characters we've grown to love, but they do not feel stagnant. Nie and Diaz deliver stunning art that complements the writing extremely well and portrays the characters in a sense where we can quickly and clearly tell what they are feeling. Read Full Review

    FINAL THOUGHTSWasp #2 worked well to progress the story forward. We got more details on the greater plot involving the WHISPER organization and Creature From Kosmos. In the process we get even more hints at how Janet and Nadia Van Dyne's are closer tied together than either knew. The ending worked well to hook the reader in to find out what will happen next.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 16, 2023

    The horror scene that the issue ends on promises to launch the series in a very intriguing direction. If Ewing is plunging Janet and Nadia into more of a cosmic horror sort of thing, Nie and Dazs moody, dramatic art could move into much sharper focus, allowing for the series to end in a much stronger place than where its started. For all the awkward, clunky exposition, Ewing IS putting a pair of really interesting characters on the page...and they look suitably heroic thanks to the efforts of Nie and Daz. All the right elements are there for a good series. They just need to assemble themselves on the page in the second half of the series. Read Full Review
