    Mystere #2 was an enjoyable read. The story is maybe not new, but it is handled with care. It gives the main character some new depth that wasn't really evident in her previous incarnations within the multiverse. More so, it achieves an almost transcendental feeling, as it really feels as though Mystere could exist in any comic book universe and face the problems that she faces at present. With that being said, it is more this kind of issue that the publisher needs if it is trying to do some worldbuilding for its heroes as opposed to some of the more fantastical stories that are published in other titles. This issue works because it doesn't look big, but because it focuses on the small. In so doing, it gets it right. Read Full Review

    The gradual build-up of momentum within Mystere permits the reader to take pace of what is unfolding within Mary's new life and yet as we watch with fascination the subtleties of this moving story steer us toward an inevitable conclusion – you can never leave the past behind. While this painful reality is only now being accepted by this courageous woman it is the splendid visual depictions and powerful palette which unfold the difficulties and materialize the harshness of cruelty made manifest. But as we are finally confronted by this new phantom of pain one cannot but want for Medina to embrace the truth and return to what she knows … accepting everything within her life no matter how much she may wish it to be forgotten.
