Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Taskmaster #2 by Fred Van Lente and Jefte Palo.

“I’m excited for where this miniseries is going. Four out of five stars. Check it out.” – George C., MajorSpoilers.com

“…Van Lente and Palo are doing a good job giving us a rip-roaring tale of one man’s search (literally) for himself.” – Doug Zawisza, ComicBookResources.com

    Looks good. Despite rapidly turning into an old grump, I actually went out and bought the first issue because of Major Spoilers, and I was very well entertained

    I love the affect of the rectangular frame that’s laid over TM when he fights, showing us where he learned the skill. Very clever and I’m surprised we’ve never seen it before.
