"The tree of liberty must be refrshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." Zora and Jamil are faced with some harsh choices, a few roid raging Neo-Nazis, & not much water...But Disneyland has churro ice cream sandwiches so it's kinda all worth it. California Über Alles.

    Calexit #2 speaks right to a world ripe for its message. All over we see global uncertainty as each side becomes more and more entrenched in their beliefs excluding others and I'm not saying this chaotic piece of fiction has the answers but it's asking the right questions. And at only two issues in it's clear that this Black Mask title deserves to find recognition and a place on your pull-list this Wednesday. Read Full Review

    The series is back and still holds a lot of promise as to where it all goes. There's lots of extras exploring symbolism as well as interviews with interesting people. All of those extras really put the issue over the top from a read to a buy for me. This series still feels like a concept but the story is coalescing more into what was promised. We'll see where it goes and hopefully we won't be waiting as long for the third issue. Read Full Review

    And yet, even if thats not the case, that speaks to the theme of insurmountable divisions guiding Calexit. Maybe Zoras ability to direct Rossie-level ruthlessness towards the right targets is enough to make people trust in her simply because it stands in stark relief to the Jamil-style centrists. And maybe that will eventually cause Zora to go the way of so many rebel leaders before her, moving on from victory over their opponents only to inflict a new kind of horror on the people they were supposed to save. What would be more American than that? Read Full Review

    There are truly impressive things going on in "Calexit." Unfortunately, at this point, it's not the story. Read Full Review
