When a devil flees the underworld, it takes possession of a hapless mortal. When that happens, the mortal soul is cast into one of an infinite number of Hells. In order for the unclean spirit to be exorcised, the lost soul must be retrieved from Hell. That's where Orpheus Team comes in, breaking into Hell and breaking lost souls out!

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Apr 30, 2015

    It was unclear through the first portion of this second issue as to whether or not the creators were looking to treat each issue as its own singular story. As many series have chosen to do in the past, that approach would tackle the idea that there are a number of different hells, presenting readers with a different one each time. However, as the story sits with Mr. Romero longer than expected, Bunn changes the pace a bit, having this second encounter take the story into the next issue. As Hellbreak is still rather young, it remains to be seen just what grander story is being told. However, with fantastic artistic talent and the quality writing that was on display in this second issue, readers will be entertained thoroughly with these missions until the story grows into something even larger.

    I don't know if I'll review every issue of Hellbreak, but I'm definitely on board as a reader. With this second issue Hellbreak proves that it's one of the best new series on the monthly market. Again, I've read a lot of second issue flops lately so it really is an impressive to see just how damn good this issue turned out. If you missed the first issue then catch up, it's worth the time.

    With a feel reminiscent of Hellboy and B.P.R.D., I really like what I am seeing here from Bunn and Churilla. Not enough to add it to my pull-list just yet, but I'll be checking in on it from time to time. This is a story that I think will read incredibly good in trades, so keep an eye out for those. And if horror books and the supernatural are in your wheelhouse, or if you are just looking for a solid genre book to add to your pulls, you would not go wrong by adding this one. Great stuff.

    Comics: The Gathering - Forrest Hollingsworth Apr 30, 2015

    Issue two doesn’t really make or break Hellbreak yet. It adds a little depth and flexibility to an interesting premise and shows that these creators are honing in on something special. But, it doesn’t deliver on the characterizations that this concept deserves. Read Full Review

    This was a good read, with some improvements it can be better but it's only issue two. If you're a fan of horror and love Cullen Bunn's work, check this title out. Read Full Review
