    Yes. I'm going with a 9.5 on this, because I'm honestly excited to see where everything is going. Tom is a stone cold killer, the actual quest they're on is compelling, the artwork is adding to the quality, and I'm having a blast. Bring on issue 3! Read Full Review

    Assassin's Creed #2 is a great follow-up to the first issue and with its engrossing story line and interesting characters I can say that I'm hooked so far to this series. The Templars' plot in Salem may seem straight forward at first but there are enough twists, character development and action to keep you glued to every page. I wish there was more of Charlotte this issue but I admit that Tom was more interesting this issue than last and that's due to the overall situation and being paired with Jennifer. Can't wait until next issue now. Read Full Review

    If you are a fan of the games and still working your way through Syndicate, this is a good way to take a break in between the game. Its also a good time period to explore as thus far in the game we have only seen Connors story in North America and despite that story not being overly exciting, the game showed what could be done with Colonial America. This title thus far is worth picking up and I cant wait for the next issue. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Nov 17, 2015

    Assassins Creed #2 is already starting to realize the series' full potential. Its bloody, gory and proper Assassins Creed. (Theres even a bonus feature of a map of Salem at the end of the book, at least in the digital issue that this reviewer read). The good thing about the comics is that the writers arent limited to making their storyline work in construction with the same formulaic missions that the games seem to use so much, so its already interesting to see what Del Col and McCreery can come up with. Along with Neil Edwards and Ivan Nunes, the book seems to have found its footing, and the third part in “Trial By Fire”sounds very interesting indeed. Next month should be a good one.

    Assassin's Creed #2 is yet another great installment in this comic book adaptation of the much loved video game, taking all that was good about the opening issue, whilst trimming away some of the more disappointing elements. It also brought to life a brand new time period for the franchise to explore, with the creative team leaving me hooked for the next installment. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Nov 13, 2015

    Assassin's Creed #2 is a bloody adventure following one of the more interesting Assassins the series has given us. McCreery and Del Col do a great job of characterizing him, but also making him emotionally vulnerable towards the end of the issue. Neil Edwards' artwork is serviceable with a number of mistakes, but also some bright spots. If you are into the story behind the Assassin's Creed games this is an issue you don't want to miss.
