Nothing is as it seems when the con artists of JACKPOT! are introduced to the hidden keys of the universe. But will any of them survive the mind-bending, reality-shattering result? Some of them are already starting to die...and return...
The first issue of Jackpot was something that I struggled with but kind of hoped that it would all come together as it went along. While there are books where you sense it's worth the investment in figuring it out, Jackpot in its second installment ended up just being a bit more muddled and teasing without giving enough to really connect with. There are interesting ideas in here and the characters have potential but it comes across in such a haphazard way that it doesn't feel accessible at all. I'll probably revisit the book at some point simply because I have to believe that Fawkes has something bigger in play here based on his past works and I'll want to see more of Failla's artwork as he definitely has some very fun stuff in here.
