Detroit police officer Jutte Shelley (aka Jutte Frankenstein) has brought her ambushed squad back from the dead, but they're... different, now. After all, Jutte didn't have a lot of material left to work with, and a human being has THE strangest puzzle pieces. Still, the team-Ex, Gemini, Leo, and Hadry- is back together again, and it's time to figure out exactly WHO issued the order to have them murdered, and also... maybe get laid? Because for some of them, it's been a while.

    Made Men hits with a brilliant premise that I hope runs forever. We have to see Jutte get her revenge and it's going to be absolutely brutal, however the concept introduced in this chapter allows for a recurring idea. She's no longer on the police force, but she could be gainfully employed by resurrecting people that were killed before their time. This also opens the door to some interesting moral dilemmas. Does she take money from someone to bring back a person that clearly does not deserve a second chance? Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Oct 15, 2017

    The Eisner Award-winning Tobin's writing chops are pretty much unquestioned, and with what looks set to be a mixture of “mission of the week” and an overarching revenge conspiracy, this feels like your new favourite TV show that hasn't quite been made yet. In lesser hands, a “reanimated special ops unit led by the descendant of the Frankensteins themselves” could feel more than little hokey, but Made Men is delivered with an impressively straight face, making it a book I have no problem recommending.

    Overall I have to recommend this issue based on the potential strength of the series as a whole rather that the issue by itself. The writing is still superb and the artwork is fantastic. If you read #1 then pick up #2 right away but if you perhaps missed #1 then perhaps youll get even more enjoyment from reading the trade when its released Read Full Review

    I am really enjoying the story but as I mentioned before, I am not sure which direction Tobin will take it. Will it head down the Frankenstein route, be about undead mercenaries for hire, or all about revenge? Either way, I look forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    More fun introductions, with only a small indication of how the series will progress now that those are done. The future looks bright, even if this opening arc will probably read much better in trade. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Oct 19, 2017

    Made Men #2 feels a lot like a “set up” issue, everything was laid out for the series to continue on from here, while that is not a bad thing I believe a lot of information given in this issue could have been played out throughout a couple of issues to avoid a huge information dump and a rather boring issue. Don't get me wrong I still really likeMade Men and still think the concept is fantastic, it is just compared to the first issue I was a little bit disappointed at what Made Men #2 delivered. Hopefully with all this out of the way the series can take off again in issue #3. Read Full Review

    Law enforcement, Frankenstein, revenge" these may not seem like feasible bedfellows, but Tobin and his Jutte are piecing together all sorts of bizarre scraps in order to bring this entertaining story to life. Read Full Review
