    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Nov 17, 2013

    With interiors from Francesco Trifogli and colours by Cris Peter, the art is once again quite decent. Given that the setting etc is all rather dark, a bit on the grim side, the colours don't really match up since they are quite cheery and even a little bright. Some shadows and dark colours would improve the artwork since then it can all match up with the story being told. Trifogli's pencils can sometimes feel uneven, with a lack of polish, but they are largely consistent, which is an important thing. There are flaws in the artwork, sure, but I like it all the same.

    IGN - Melissa Grey Nov 7, 2013

    So far, the book's more conventional dystopian elements -- the ruined city, the bands of human survivors making the most of what they have -- haven't congealed harmoniously with the more fantasy-esque aspects of the story. While the idea of blending creatures from ancient Gaelic folklore with a futuristic dystopia is an appealing one, we'll have to wait and see how Edginton and Trifogli approach it in future issues before we can deem it successful or not.

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Nov 6, 2013

    Hinterkind #2 was an improvement over the debut issue; there's world building with the monsters, better dialogue, and the art has improved now that it can provide visually appealing creatures to make the story stand out more. It's still not the most engaging comic yet and the story hasn't really gotten going but there's still plenty of promise. I'll be back next time to see if this comic continues to grow.

    You're still not entirely convinced that long-term investment in the series is necessary, but this issue does begin to make a better case for interest. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Oscar Bergeron-Oakes Nov 8, 2013

    Hinterkind #2 had some great moments and several surprises, but it also had its fair share of disappointments. Inconsistent art and rushed storytelling left more to be desired from this book. All in all, it's a title worth reading based on the potential and monsters that it contains. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Erik McAlister Nov 7, 2013

    Both the writing and art seem a little weak right off. But like I said earlier, this could really be a series that surprises everybody. I could even see this becoming a sleeper hit. So I would watch for it. I'm really thinking that I haven't seen anything too impressive yet because of the fact that nothing has really happened yet. That is definitely a possibility. I plan on sticking around for a bit. I got a good feeling about this one. Read Full Review
