The wives of Desert Canyon still don't know the secret power they possess. Their husbands continue their campaign of insidious manipulation. Izzy hears scratching in the walls. A cat jumps into a cake. Blood is spilled. And the creepiest sex scene in all of comics.

    Hex Wives #2 is infuriatingly uncomfortable from cover to cover, and that's quite possibly what makes it one of the best reads this week. Read Full Review

    The art is fantastic. There are some great panels that depict Isadora's conflicting emotions and curiosity as well as shots that amplify how creepy and dangerous Aaron is as a character. Read Full Review

    The art is great as well. Andolfo does some top notch work here and brings the script home. It's wonderfully drawn and there is so much quiet emotion that is brought to the page. It's really great. This book could be a sleeper. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Nathaniel Muir Nov 28, 2018

    Disturbing, uncomfortable, and scary in ways that are are more real and relatable than most witch stories. And that is the scariest thing of all. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Nov 28, 2018

    After the extreme violence of the first issue, we see a softer and more insidious struggle. The oppressors favored tactic of gaslighting is proving to be less effective than first thought. It looks like the wives are about to figure it all out, and when they do, everything will burn. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Tevin Murphy Nov 28, 2018

    Overall Hex Wives #2 is an interesting and entertaining look at the witches lives within their current reincarnation cycle. I maintain that Hex Wives has all of right ingredients to be one of Vertigos best titles. The book's second issue isn't as rambunctious as the first but it still packs quite the punch and it still gives us a helluva surprise ending that just reminds me why I'm so interested in this series. Blacker is laying all the right seeds for an extremely interesting series. The moment of our witches awakening into the realization of who they truly are seems to be coming sooner rather than later and I'm absolutely ready for it. Read Full Review

    If you weren't thrilled with last month's debut, come back for Hex Wives #2, it seems to quickly find its stride as well a creating some sympathy for Isadora and her friends. This is a really positive turn and signals a lot of potential. The last page reveal and the focus on character throughout indicate this series could be good for a long time. These were elements that made Fables, another Vertigo series,one of the best series of all time. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Dec 17, 2018

    Hex Wives is a very relevant comic right now. Writer Ben Blacker has crafted a haunting story that gets right under your skin with how wrong it feels. Unfortunately, there will be a segment of the population that will see the men as the good guys and that's even more chilling. Read Full Review
