2050 London: The Esthers send Olivia on a heist into the Vertical City-a mile-high tower, the last refuge for wealthy Americans who have lost their country.  But there's incredible danger waiting for her on all sides: the mysterious killer from her nightmares, machine-augmented men, the most powerful C.E.O. in the world. And there is also, as it turns out, an even greater danger for Olivia: a love triangle.

    Olivia Twist #2 is the midpoint of a 4-issue story. There is a lot going on, but there is clearly much more to go. Olivia is narrating this as her past. She has managed to get through all this, somehow, we just don't know how, especially since it is rapidly becoming clear that she cannot trust the people outside the workhouse any more than she could trust the ones inside it.

    Having never read the original work and probably barely seeing the film adaptation of it far too long ago, I have only the slimmest of connections to the source material for this. I can see the basics because they've been used elsewhere so there are no real surprises here because of that. The writing side is solid enough in what it's trying to convey here, though some of the pacing feels a touch off, while Vieceli's artwork has a briskness and fun life to it that's definitely engaging. I continue to be curious about it and enjoy it in the moment but it feels like it needs a little something extra to really give it some weight. Read Full Review

    At the halfway point of the series, "Olivia Twist" #2 feels rushed and too full of clichs. Read Full Review

    We don't break any new ground in explaining how this dystopian world comes to be, which is a big bummer as it's one of the more interesting elements of the adaptation. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Oct 24, 2018

    In all, this was an issue that is too easily forgettable that will probably only really work in trade. It’s too bad, because this is probably the first real issue that I find was a real miss in the Berger Books line. Read Full Review
