In the quiet Pacific Northwestern town of Blackcross, something terrible is happening. A man has burned himself to death by the lake, but there's no body. A man under witness protection is under threat. A serial killer is murdering his way towards the town limits. And supernatural figures stare out through mirrors and windows, haunting their own doppelgangers. The alternative history of Blackcross is reaching out through the mist to lay its claws on the real world.

    Best random piece of character development, the mail carrier feeds the bears in the forest because she thinks the large one may be her dead uncle. That is a Warren Ellis quirk for sure. Read Full Review

    Project Superpowers: Blackcross #2 isn't a superhero comic - at least not yet. Warren Ellis, Colton Worley, and Morgan Hickman have taken the tried and true concept of Project Superpowers and molded it into something aimed at today's comic reading populace. Blackcross may be Dynamite's first made for tv drama and, of course, it was presented to us by Warren Ellis. Though the heavily serialized nature of the narrative may hurt its audience in the short term, Project Superpowers: Blackcross has the potential to be yet another blockbuster franchise for Dynamite Comics.

    The disparate storylines, lack of character building, and an absence of horror are the downfall to this second issue. However, there is plenty of mystery to keep me holding out for the next issue. Worley's character designs are intriguing and unique although his shadowing is a little overdone creating full on masks.
