The last thing that I'd like to talk about is the origin story/flashback sequence in this issue. What we got to see was sort of an origin within an origin. We get a better look at what caused the transhuman virus and how it affected humanity. This is being told while we get a better look at the life of our hero (more like antihero) before the virus. This gives us a lot of insight and is just fun to read. Read Full Review
Issue 2 also greatly benefits from a new artist. J.C. Grande's art is much easier to follow than in the book's first issue. Grande is also more willing to take a few gambles with panel layout, and, while much of it is standard format, it's nice to see that page composition is something that he is taking into account. Overall the book has a distinctive look which fits the story, but it's slightly lacking in detail and polish. The color palate also leaves a bit to be desired, sometimes the colors really pop, but overall they feel a bit muted. Read Full Review
Overall I think this issue was pretty consistent with the first issue in most areas. I do think that people will have a better understanding of the story if they read both issues back to back, but even still this issue does a good job of standing on its own and filling in a lot of the questions from the first issue. For a series that's dealing with vampires it didn't focus solely on them and that's a good thing. Read Full Review
