    Duggan continues to craft a thrilling and engaging story in this follow up issue. There is great action and a fantastic buildup of tension both with the characters and the environment. I love that there is still mystery to everything happening to the characters in the story and that mystery keeps me engaged throughout the issue. I find myself invested in this story, its characters and its ongoing mystery and look forward to seeing what happens next.

    Brown delivers fantastic art throughout the issue. The action is thrilling and I love the visual style of both the characters and the world.

    The debut issue of Falling in Love on the Path to Hell left a lasting impression on me, thanks to its riveting plot, vibrant cultural setting, and captivating characters. Having eagerly delved into the second issue, I found that while it mostly retained its charm, the storyline didn’t quite hit the same high notes. That said, the plot’s slight dip didn’t dampen my enthusiasm, primarily because the characters continued to shine brightly. Their intricate moral quandaries and the evolving dynamics of their relationships are truly the series’ backbone. It’s this rich character development and the unravelling of their bonds that keep me eagerly looking forward to the next instalment.

    After a wild opening issue, Falling In Love On The Path To Hell #2 lays out the stakes for readers. [… ] Every action panel is a grimy, flesh-covered mess, making it abundantly clear that while it’s not Hell, it’s not much better. The “love” aspect of the title also appears to be either purely metaphorical or the ultimate long game, as Asami isn’t one for talking and doesn’t think much of Macraith, even though he’s gradually walking right up to the line of just being Red Dead Redemption‘s Arthur Morgan.
