    Jones creates a narrative that feels like a good push forward for the series, in an issue that's funny, bizarre, emotional and action-packed all at once. Read Full Review

    The character building and mystery surrounding Liam's powers are executed at a very high level making it difficult to imagine a reader wouldn't want to return next month.Collapser#2 makes some unusual choices that really pay off in making Liam an interesting character with an even more interesting power problem. Don't let this series get too far along before jumping on! Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Aug 14, 2019

    Collapser very well may be my new favorite comic book series. This second issue continues to impress, building additional momentum while simultaneously cementing itself as a must-read series. Read Full Review

    Collapser #2 is a roller coaster of emotion and mystery supported with powerful visuals. This is quickly proving to be another can't miss series from DC's Young Animal imprint. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Aug 14, 2019

    If the first issue didn't get you, this second one surely should! When it comes to a book like Collapser, you want to aim for satisfaction, even if it is pretty early. These first issue issues throw both us and Liam right into the fire in a way that gets you excited for what comes next. We know as much about this black hole, or Collapser, as Liam. Part of the thrill is how we figure this out before Liam's world comes crashing down. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Aug 14, 2019

    The story is one of the weirdest I've seen in quite some time. I'm fine with that though. The creative team seems to have it all together though and it shows. This may be a quirky title but it really does involve the reader. I'm looking forward to reading some more of this book when the next chapters come out. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Aug 14, 2019

    The ending of this issue is far too tantalizing, as you finally start to see Liam grasp tightly onto some semblance of sanity, madness explodes all over the pages. This series shouldn't be approached lightly, however, if you want a rollercoaster ride of dementedness, then you've arrived at the perfect property. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Sep 2, 2019

    Collapser is unpredictable and insane. You never know what's waiting for you around each corner. It could be something that brings a smile to your face or scare the living crap out of you...or both. This is like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest meets world-ending catastrophe. Read Full Review

    There's a lot of quality work going on here, especially from the art team, but I'm not sure it's coming together as a story yet. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Adam Brown Aug 16, 2019

    From the condescending psychiatrist all too eager to fit Liam into a cookie cutter diagnosis, the world collapses (no pun intended). Aliens, demons, monsters and explosions, oh my! Wave after wave of destruction unfold but amidst it all, the persona of Collapser appears as calm in the eye of the storm. Is he a baddie? By surrendering can he regain some form of control? I dont know but Ill certainly be picking up the next issue to find out. Read Full Review

    Collapser #2 takes a darkly comedic approach to the effects a new black hole on your chest might have to an anxious unsuspecting individual. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Aug 14, 2019

    After last month's engaging start, this is a mess. Hallucinatory madness is all well and good, but unless it is connected in some clear way to an ongoing narrative, the result is always going to be, as here, unsatisfying. Kyriazis' art is great, but the warmth and depth of last month's issue are notably absent. This is thin and charmless stuff. Read Full Review
