    Where Monsters Dwell #2 is another great entry in this Secret Wars limited series. Like the films that made up Ray Harryhausen's career, there's a sense of adventure to this comic, alongwith a dash of Ennis' trademark humor. This is not a comic concerned with the Secret Wars event at all. In fact, until the encounter at the end of the book, it doesn't even necessarily feel like a Marvel title. That's a good thing. One of the promises of Secret Wars was that it would give creators opportunities to go wild, pulling what they wanted from the Marvel Universe. Warren Ellis and Russ Braun are not only delivering on that promise, they're making one of the best books on the stand today. Read Full Review

    Artist Russ Braun is making this incredible series that much better with his characterization of these two adventurers. Every emotion, no matter how subtle, is shown quite beautifully through his pencils. Whether Clemmie is reacting to one of Karl's misogynistic comments or Karl is whining because Clemmie is wearing the pants in this relationship, we get to see everything. One fine detail I appreciated the most was featured on the last page of the issue when they come across a tribe of amazon women. The clear deviance in their faces is quite remarkable and noteworthy.

    This is the best book of the week. It's funny, exciting, and surprising. One moment I'm laughing out loud, then I'm squirming at the dinosaur attacks, and then I'm absorbing the grandeur of the setting. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    This series is overall a good one. With the dinosaur craze lately, thanks to Jurassic World, this issue is doing well. There is some awesome dinosaur action, and humor between Karl and Clemmie. I’d say, definitely give this series a shot. Read Full Review
