    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Feb 5, 2010

    Becky Cloonan really outdoes herself with her efforts on this comic book. The settings are meticulously detailed; St. Paul's Cathedral looks incredible here. It's incredibly easy to see this happening in the real world, because it looks like the real world. When it comes to the characters, she boasts a slightly simpler approach, given her Amerimanga style. However, the figures are just as convincing, because he captures body language nicely. I was also pleased to see that despite its move to a bigger publisher, the art on Demo is still presented in black and white. Furthermore, the creators still offer up text and sketches in the back of the comic to give their readers some insight into the creative process. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 3, 2010

    This issue isn't necessarily the strongest of Wood's efforts to date. The story reads very quickly and isn't necessarily as substantive as the more densely plotted issues of Demo Vol. 1 or Local. Also a bit disappointing is that the ending is fairly predictable, compared to certain past issues of Vol. 1 that genuinely surprised me in their twists and turns. But predictable and content-light though it may be, Wood still impresses with his return to Demo. Though the premise never changes, I love the fact that readers never know quite what to expect from future installments. Read Full Review

    While not a 'knock you on your butt' issue, the debut of the second volume of "Demo" is a very good comic and a worthy continuation of the first series. The comic itself also keeps the same format of the original series with back matter material, including Wood and Cloonan telling us everything we need to know about the first series, process material, and a preview of the next issue.
