The smash-hit sex-and-superpowers epic returns, with a brand-new artist and an all-new ongoing series that picks up where the bestselling graphic novel left off! London is in ruins, psychic manipulator Monty is ripped in half by failed musician Weasel, and rabbit-hatted invisible artist Verity is missing, presumed dead! As England pulls itself back from the brink, new G-positive powers are popping up all over! As martial law and forced abstinence prey on the mind of the London Mayor, the American alphabet agencies are watching the London warzone with interest - and special agent Jeb Mulgrew might be next to be thrown into the fire!

    Overall this first issue was a blast and will definitely have you hooked. It is a comic that may throw one off, by its plot, but it does something very rare, it exceeds the premise and brings the concept to new heights. It introduces you to new characters, and one definitely does not need to read the original arc to enjoy this, even though one would like to now. Definitely worth requesting it for your pullbox.

    Comic Crusaders - Adam Cadmon May 3, 2015

    I've never read a comic quite like Death Sentence, in either of its manifestations, and I'm enjoying the wild ride thoroughly. If you haven't had the pleasure of reading the previous books, not to worry, Death Sentence: London #1 is an excellent place to get your first fix! Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jun 16, 2015

    If you like this kind of dystopic tale (I'll resist the urge to say "here it is"), this is a well-crafted one, with additional layers of super-powered elements added in. It's a little too grim for me, but your mileage may vary. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Mar 30, 2015

    I actually already have the second issue to check out which I'm looking forward to doing so. That's a good thing for two reasons: it shows that I want to keep reading and it shows that the creators are already ahead of the curb. With the high quality of the art and the in-depth story you want this series to be ahead. If you enjoyed the first series pick it up for sure and if you didn't check it out, then do so and join us in a more mature X-Men style of comic. Read Full Review

    Both Nero and Simmonds have created a beautiful sequel to an already successful book. I don’t read British comic books too often, but this, along with Surface Tension, are two that I am going to keep my eye on. If you can, get to your local comic shop and pick up a copy ASAP! Read Full Review

    While people who haven't read the previous Death Sentence series might not get the full context behind the rise of Weasel as a London hero or what the deal is behind Verity's (super-cool) powers as Artgirl, this is an intriguing start for this sequel. Read Full Review
