    This comic was great. The art maintains it's dark, moody atmosphere from the first issue and it represents the game series well. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Kevin Given May 20, 2016

    The creative team has taken their time and turned this title into an artistic masterpiece. The influence of artists like Al Williamson and Bernie Wrightson are obvious though Quah takes us on a journey all his own as his lines clearly define the shadows and mid-tones in a way that is unique to his style.

    I am curious as to how others feel about the ending, and about what that might mean for the rest of the series. If you're reading along, drop me some comments below. Dark Souls nerds unite, and all that. Read Full Review

    Dark Souls #2 is an adrenaline-filled issue that is able to build on the first issue with its intense action and shocking conclusion. The first 8 pages' focus on rehashing the synopsis given last issue is somewhat surprising, and doesn't add anything new to the overall story. However, Alan Quah's artwork carries the action sequences making them visually captivating so its easy to get lost in the world in these pages. And now I can't wait to see how next issue starts considering the remarkable ending here. Read Full Review

    Though I never could have guessed that From Software's dark and broody trilogy would be rife for adaptation, Dark Souls #2 defies expectations and shows that you can take what makes a game great and present it in a new accessible light without losing what made it great in the process.

    I really can't see any reason to buy this unless you're either in love with the game or the cover. Even fans of the series aren't going to find much value here though, as there is just no story to read. Magicman says to kill this guy for this thing, because. Kill guy. Get thing. Next. I just saved you four bucks. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller May 31, 2016

    Issue 2 hasn't changed my main stance on this series then: It's really only worth reading for the artwork, which is still jaw-dropping amazing. This might be the prettiest comic I've ever come across. As a story though, you can do better. Read Full Review
