The first issue of Freakshow had me interested from the first with its style of art but it took some time for the storyline to get going. This issue follows the same path, for better or worse, as I like the oppressive nature of the artwork and how it feels so intense throughout even when they're just talking in the shadows. When it gets to the exposition, it expands on what we know while reinforcing the things we do know in a way that makes it resonate more. Critter as the central focus is the right way to go as he's the heart of the book and we get to see all sides of the story because of him. What continues to draw me to the book is the way that those that are basically considered the heroes even though others don't see them that way are basically all science experiments at this point and are still being put through the process. The story progresses here but it doesn't stray much from what made the first issue both enjoyable and something of a challenge to read and enjoy. Read Full Review
