    Once again, I absolutely love the art but the story is just kind of meh to me. Maybe there's just too much relationship/personal drama for me? That's a big reason why I don't read much contemporary stuff, but I usually like roller derby stories so I'm not sure what exactly is missing here that is making this comic just average for me.

    Still have the same problem I had with the previous book - sometimes I have a hard time telling the characters apart. But after the first "issue" of the trade, I had a handle on who was who and I really enjoyed this sequel! Roller Derby lends itself so much to the graphic novel format and it really captures the chaos of the practices and bouts. I really hope this isn't the last we see of the Pushy Riots!

    Not as good as the first book. Feels like they had to wrap things up in a hurry.

    This series is cute. It's too bad it seems like there won't be any more of it, because I think it could be a lot better if it got more time to develop.

I wish there was more of this and would highly recommend it!

    I love the focus on roller derby— The art is glorious— —and I barely knew what was going on throughout the book. I read volume 1 earlier this year, and once I dredged up memories of what happened there, the backstory here made a little more sense, but they're definitely not things to be read out of order. Basically...Can-can is still on the injured list; Knockout is still in trouble for helping Can-can post-injury (and is trying to balance derby pressure with real-life pressure); and there's a rook I love the focus on roller derby— The art is glorious— —and I barely knew what was going on throughout the book.

Lots of good setup for conflict, but gosh I wish this were full-length rather than a serialized thing, because there's never enough time for those conflicts (or characters) to develop.

    The story has lost its heart, somehow, in favor of drama and relationships. There are fewer jokes, but the ending is a happy one. The story begins on a low note with Jen on probation for leaving the track to care for Maisie after the bump that led to her shoulder injury. She is assigned to train the new recruits, but is doing a poor job because she focuses to much on workouts and not at all on having fun.

    Hmm, maybe I should have reread the first volume, but I thought this volume was a bit all over the place. What I really enjoyed about the first volume was the relationship between Jen and the short-haired blonde. This one seemed to focus on Kristen, but she looks very similar to Jen. And it's sort of confusing what's going on with her and the graffiti, and other stuff. It's like you get glances of side stories, but never any depth or answers? It's just a little hard to tell who I'm supposed to pay Hmm, maybe I should have reread the first volume, but I thought this volume was a bit all over the place.

    I didn't like this one as much as I liked the first; the artist changed and this one felt a little too "cutesy" to me, and there really wasn't much to the story to satisfy me. Plus, the ending just kind of seemed like it dropped off - and as far as I can tell, that's the end of the series? This was enjoyable enough, but the first volume is really all you need.

    It took me about 15 minutes to read this because only a single comic's worth of plot is spread across five. I was really disappointed at the drop off in quality and characterization between volume one and two; the only good storyline was the subplot about the skater's rebellion against sexualized promo posters.

    Didn't find this to be quite as enjoyable as volume one. The story was a little hard to get in to and I think a reintroduction of the characters would have been great. I also preferred Veronica Fish's art style but that's just a personal preference. That being said, it was still a light and easy read, whilst still retaining much of the adversity and strong female characters as volume one.

    Was a little lost at first as I read volume one so long ago, but dug this. Girl power and derby and delving more into these c relationships 😍

    Extra star for being about the only sport I like, otherwise all the drama was exhausting. Maisie is annoying. I don't really feel attached to any of the characters.

    This was a bit more disjointed of an arc than the first volume, more episodic in a way. Still a solid story with great art.

    Good second volume...just wish these collections came out quicker as I don’t have access to the individual comics!

    I liked it even more than the first volume, but I'm a huge sucker for derby.
