    Rereading what I've written thus far in this review, I'm guessing it will be easy for people to assume I didn't enjoy this issue, and don't care for Incognito as a whole. That's not the case, and I should point out that this book definitely is a worthwhile read. It's just not Criminal, and as unfair as that may be, it's reality. I for one yearn for the day Brubaker and Phillips fulfill whatever creative itch led them to this series and get back to exploring the world of Tracy Lawless, Leo Patterson and Frank Capra, P.I.

    "Incognito" is the real deal, and if the price of this comic is a handful of months without a new issue of "Criminal," well that's okay. Because it's still Brubaker and Phillips, doing what they do best: creating sordid beauty out of a world gone wrong. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Feb 17, 2009

    Brubaker has another hit on his hands with Incognito. Incognito #2 is an issue that should appeal to readers who enjoy pulp and crime stories. I think that the flavoring of the super hero genre that Brubaker infuses into this story might make this title more appealing to readers who prefer only super hero comic books. This issue should also appeal to readers who enjoy a story that is twisted and different from what you get on the majority of super hero titles on the market. However, I would not recommend Incognito #2 to readers who are weary of grim, gritty and realistic super hero stories. Read Full Review
