With four bodies lying on mortuary slabs, speculation mounts from a century ago to the present day as to the identity of the victim. In wartime Britain and a forgetful future, however, living strangers are causing confusion. A hookers kiss, a fine young cannibal, a fascist mob and a suspect who literally falls from the heavens will send muddy ripples through history. The time-travelling serial-killer story heats up!

    Bodies #2 is a fantastic continuation of the series so far and I cant wait to see where it leads. There is no real major drawback or negative aspect to the issue and while some readers may prefer an emphasis on one particular detective per issue, the way the writers have tactfully laid out each development for each detective there is no real need for detective specific issues at this time. I highly recommend this series to everyone, but be aware that this is a true mystery series and you will need to start from the beginning! Read Full Review

    Four artists. One writer. One body. 6-pages each. You have to respect what they're doing in such a short space. In two issues, and 12 pages for each story, Si and company have created a series that is doing in a short space what some comics can't do in an entire run. Read Full Review

    “Bodies” is proving to be a complex, riveting mystery that should continue to draw in readers. Spencer and this art team are giving us a Vertigo book that is living up to the rich history of the line. This one cannot be missed. Read Full Review

    I find myself looking forward to each issue of Bodies more and more. It continues to be a wonderful twist on a murder mystery and Spencer writes each story within beautifully. Every artist does a great job with their section and Lee Loughridge's coloring is a standout. Bodies #2 continues to engage the reader and provides clues that add to the reading experience. I'm all in and strongly recommend that mystery fans go pick this one up. Read Full Review

    I am still not 100% convinced that this isn't going to be an instance of a brilliant concept executed in a less than brilliant way, but I am hopeful enough to keep reading. Read Full Review

    All told, "Bodies" #2 is an intriguing step forward for the series. I'm curious to see where the story goes. By nature of its structure, it will move more slowly than many other series, but the creative team continues to make me curious for the next issue. Read Full Review
