    Writer Christopher Sebela delivers a fine sense of rhythm and pacing for dialogue. The zany characters are energetic with their nonstop chatter. The dark humor hits its punchline after Snake responds with a spot-on one-liner. A man of few words, Snake has the best lines in the comic, thanks to Sebela. The dialogue still feels like something Kurt Russell would say in character. Read Full Review

    Reading more into the story than I probably should, this issue gave an interesting perspective on the "celebrity" of Snake Plissken and the man behind the mask, so to speak. He really is perceived by all to be a "one man army" and people are either for him or against him with no middle ground, so he really is the John Wayne character of this fictional world, able to start and end wars on his own. And it sounds like war is what we're going to get next month! Read Full Review

    Escape from New York #2 is a little long-winded but it examines the interesting topic of what exactly freedom is and what it is not. Diego Barreto's artwork is able to touch on the horrors and destruction of war, while also giving us one of the most terrifying pages I have witnessed. (Seriously, nightmares.) Read Full Review

    Escape from New York continues the action-packed adventures of Snake Plissken. The storyline is filled with action sequences which successfully create a movie-like tone. However, at times there is just too much going on and more character development is required. Read Full Review
