Written by PAUL DINI
Variant Cover by BRIAN BOLLAND

Size: 32 pages
Price: 2.99

Dini’s storyline about a mystical gang taking over the city continues to be fun.  But what made the issue for me was Stephanie Roux’s art.  His layouts, particularly when he delves into the realm of nightmares are fantastic.  Nothing over-the-top, but varied, and very easy to follow.  There’s a subtle face made of tree branches panel that made me really appreciate how imperative his art was to Dini’s storytelling in this issue.

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 5 - Excellent

    Glad to hear this continues the fun of the first issue.  

    Just as a heads up, Stephane Roux is a dude. 😉 

  2. Thank you, Paul.  He and Joann Sfar should start a band and cover a boy named Sue.  If Sue was a male French name that looked like an Enlgish girl’s name on page.

  3. Agreed on all counts.  This issue was fantastic.  Also, I love Roux’s cover for this issue, and I was glad to see that same sensibility continued into the interiors.  I’m totally digging this title.

  4. The art in this is awesome. Reminds me a bit of J.H. Williams III; however, I thought a couple panels were a bit awkward and they stuck out all the more when the art is this good.

  5. Nice call Akamuu.  That tree shot was really clever, wasn’t it?

  6. @Urthona: I nearly missed it, and then my eye fell back and I may have muttered an aw yea.  MAY HAVE.  Only my cats will ever know.

    @Scorpion: My brain filed your comment in my review of Power Girl for some reason, and I went back and looked at it to try and figure out what you were talking about.  I thought I’d missed something there.  (I did, but it had nothing to do with JH Williams III.)  But, yes, absolutely yes to to your comparison of Williams III and Roux.
