    "Yondu #2" makes for a fun event tie-in with some messy and exposition-filled writing backed up by great action and fantastic artwork. Read Full Review

    So far I feel like this series is promising more than it delivers. Will it improve? Too soon to tell, but when it’s 2 issues into a 5 issue mini it’s a little worrying that it’s not delivering on the goods yet. I’ve enjoyed the art and the colors really help set the tone. Perhaps a little naively I remain hopeful for the rest of the series. Read Full Review

    It's flawed and imperfect, messy and jagged"it's exactly the art this character needs. Read Full Review

    This is a quick read. Very little happens, and what does happen is completely telegraphed and contrived. What will happen to Present Yondu and how will it all work out with future Yondu? I don't know and frankly I'm not all that interested to find out. The art is muddy and frequently indistinct, with backgrounds either too busy or blank. It hasn't been announced as such, but it's almost certainly going to be an unannounced mini series. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Nov 30, 2019

    Yondu #2 is a misstep in almost every way. It does nothing to make the unlikeable title character appealing. The way it treats its female character is troubling, and the art is hit or miss at best. Read Full Review

    I liked this issue more than Yondu 1. The origin of the Herald’s Urn was actually pretty interesting, and the jokes were funny, unlike last issue. I’m still not that interested why the other Yondu is in the present and how he got here, but Yondu 2 is funny, has good art, and the plot is slightly better and intensifies a little. So Yondu is showing some potential as a series

    This is still not that good.

    It's a functional antihero story, but any "exceeds expectations" quality in the storytelling is counter-balanced by the relentless generic-ness of the setting and the characterization of Yondu-616.

    And some of the reviewers have a point about Zhala: She exists to be sexy, exposit the MacGuffin, and then get brutally killed. Even her death matters only insofar as Yondu reacts to it, and that's a retrograde way to write a female character in 2019.

    Prelude:
    I decided to be kind and give Yondu a passing grade for it's first issue but it now needs to prove itself in the second issue.

    The Good:
    I liked the origin of the Herald's Urn.

    The Bad:
    Art isn't too good.

    It's a boring issue with me trying to skim read as much as possible.

    Conclusion:
    While the origin of the Herald's Urn is nice, the art isn't easy to read and the writing makes me want to skip as much as possible.
