• You thought giant land sharks were bad? How about former West Coast Avenger Tigra transformed into an extremely grouchy, extremely ENORMOUS Woman?!
•  But Tigra isn't the half of it. Who's the insanely handsome man behind the curtain pulling her strings?
•  Hawkeye, Hawkeye, America Chavez, Fuse, Gwenpool and Kid Omega are here to uncover the mystery and save the city of Los Angeles from certain death (but not extreme property damage!)
•  They may not be the heroes we need, but they're certainly the ones we deserve! Strap in, folks!

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Sep 19, 2018

    So, I sort of liked West Coast Avengers #2. I'm mildly intrigued to read further…scratch all that, I'm full of shit. I'm in love with this comic, it delighted me to no end. Thompson writes with a razor sharp wit and Caselli, Farrell and Caramagna deliver visuals that are straight up awesome. If you didn't grab issue #1, do yourself a favour and rectify that. Grab #2 while you're at it, you'll be happy you did. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Alyssa Jackson Sep 24, 2018

    There are too many series that take themselves way too seriously, but I am really enjoying the embracing of teenage heroes and teenage fans and having some fun with comics again. This book should be on a shelf with Ms. Marvel and The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, bringing some brightness into the LCS. Read Full Review

    WEST COAST AVENGERS #2 continues to prove why truly strange and undeniably fun series just work. The creativity of Thompson, Caselli, and Farrell continues to shine. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Sep 19, 2018

    This is clearly a quieter comic than the max-volume introduction. The passionate engagement with the characters and the bottomless craziness of B.R.O.D.O.K. safely hold us miles away from boring, though. #2 expands the West Coast Avengers repertoire significantly and proves that much as we love land sharks, we can find plenty of compelling interest in this title without non-stop wackiness.

    You Don't Read Comics - Brandon Masters Sep 23, 2018

    The first issue showed a lot of promise, and was a pretty strong showing. This issue keeps up that steam, and, if Kelly Thompson doesn't have a great plot already thought out, she's fantastic at winging it. If you're into lighthearted fare and want some more Hawkeyes in your life, or want some escape from the Infinity Wars going on, this is easily the best comic on the market for you. Read Full Review

    West Coast Avengers manages to capture what I was hoping for with the Great Lakes Avengers series. I wanted a team that is capable but struggles due to the relationships between the characters. Thompson manages to provide a heart to heart moment between Kate and Clint, A love-hate relationship between Quentin and Gwen, and an infiltration all in one issue. That doesn't even take into account America's frustrations and the reality show element.
    This series managed to take a concept and team roster I was apprehensive about and make it one of my favorite fun titles to read. The art is very fitting and looks good. There are times where I questioned if the cells were really capturing what the story was trying to display, but that is just ni more

    The West Coast Avengers start unraveling the mystery that is BRODOK. This issue's first scene is a useful touchstone for the whole series: BRODOK displays a sinister, plot-relevant ability to kaiju-whisper Giant-Size Tigra, but the story focuses on the WCAs attempting to out-snark each other with their situational hot takes. This is a superhero sitcom first and foremost.

    It's a pretty dang good one, but I don't know how long it can last. Every reader who sticks with it will, over time, spot more and more ideas that they feel this series chucks under the bus (unfairly) in the name of comedy. Personal case in point: I'm pretty sad that this issue ignored Gwenpool's significant personal history with MODOK. Still, WCA is fun, funny, more

    This issue wasn’t as good as the first but the humor is still the same even though this comic was all over the place. But first I love how the team has the camera crew following them because it makes for some good laughs, kind of like Modern Family. Also I was crying of laughter when Gwenpool and Quentin kissed. Anyways the BRODOK stuff is basically meant for laughs and I just can’t find him funny.

    I like it, but I am also disappointed in it and cringe at it. It is funny that they are documenting everything, because it feels like a trashy reality TV show like Jersey Shore.
