    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Sep 30, 2021

    Winter Guard #2 is an awesome continuation. The characters involved and the action may initially make it seem like this is a heavy metal comic book, with non-stop violence. There are many moments where that is the case. But that is not entirely the case. There is a very interesting mystery thread that runs through the backbone of the comic, and the actions of the White Widow seek to destabilise the team. The characters are fantastically written by Cary, each having an identity and voice. What started as an adversary to the Avengers in Jason Aaron's run has now become a group full of depth, heart, and tension. Read Full Review

    Winter Guard #2 is a fun spy story that's really about the eclectic and strange Russian superhero team. Cady and Bazaldua are doing such a great job fleshing out these characters you'll put this book down and only want more. Knowing this is a shorter four-issue series is a bit of a bummer when all you want is more Winter Guard in your life! Read Full Review

    If you've been dying for a look behind the iron curtain, this is a solid book that gets a number of things right. However, the issue falls short of greatness, but many have said that about the erstwhile Soviet regime, so perhaps it's on-brand. Read Full Review

    So, Winter Guard #2 looks great, it reads smooth, and it has some intriguing insights to offer for several of its characters. Though the plot is taking its sweet time to unfold, this is hardly a boring interlude. Unless you are totally disinterested in the characters, this issue does plenty to hold your attention and get you invested in what happens next. Read Full Review
