    Overall, if you were looking at Livewire as a chance to jump on to Valiant, you will need to start all the way back to Secret Weapons, and then Harbinger Renegade, The Harbinger Wars Prelude, then to a lesser extent Harbinger Wars 2. Do yourself a favor"pick these all up, then start on Livewire. It is all the best comic reading that is out there today. Read Full Review

    Livewire #2 picks up where the previous installment left off. The creative team here is really building something special, and I cant emphasize strong enough that fans of superhero fiction should get in on the bottom level. This comic has the potential to be a run talked about for a long while. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Jan 23, 2019

    Despite the intelligent use of colour this issue, Livewire#2 is a book that lives in the moral grey area. It delights in making you question your point of view and your sympathies with the main character. Whether she's a hero or a villain is still largely in the eyes of the reader, but I can't wait to see where the creative team take us. Read Full Review

    Livewire #2 was one hell of a heartbreaker for anyone who wanted to see Amanda bounce back from this hurdle. To say that this creative team backed Amanda McKee into a corner felt like an understatement after what she has gone through this month. Read Full Review

    "Livewire" #2 is a visually striking book, but the narrative leaves something to be desired. Read Full Review
