The influence of the fiendish Red Death spans history. In the 30s, she stood against the Shadow, the Green Hornet, and Black Terror. In the 70s, the Red Death resurfaced to challenge two surprising heroes - the new Black Sparrow and Miss Fury!
Shifting the series to the late 70's, which people might gloss over at first, is definitely an interesting approach since the momentum was moving forward in the 30's era. Expanding on just what kind of history that Red Death has definitely has its appeal, but it also makes you wonder how much will be accomplished in the 30's era if it's still around here. That said, this issue worked better for me than the first overall since it was more streamlined in dealing with just two main characters with Black Sparrow and Miss Fury, but it also faltered a lot more because it spent so much time on their back stories since they're not as recognizable in general. I get it, but at the same time, the information is so easily at hand these days that it felt like it was stalling more than anything else, and it certainly didn't fit the flow of the moment. Hopefully things move in a better direction going forward, though I liked a good chunk of this installment. Read Full Review
I don't know how this figures into the whole story, especially with the way it ends. I'm left wondering where the Green Hornet is and what he was doing while the two girls become gal-pals over mutual ass-kicking ability. My remaining feeling after this issue is that it feels rushed.

Enjoyable enough but came off very staged, especially as the characters delve into their backstories. I wonder how long this series will run for, seems like it will eat up a lot of pages if Bunn continues to introduce characters at this rate. The art works, but could be better; I enjoyed the layouts of the previous issue more.
