    ThelongerIsatwithissue #2of American Jesus, the more I appreciated the realistic perspective of a child who grows up surrounded by religious fanatics who would stand in front of a train or take a bullet for the chosen one " she who is the Christ-Child. Despite the gritty, artistic style that doesn't quite whet my appetite, I absolutely adore Peter Gross' ability to create impeccable facial expressions and great scenery in most panels. I didn't think I'd take to this Volume 2, but I can't wait for Millar and Gross to keep them coming. Read Full Review

    American Jesus #2 gives us a huge time jump from the last installment and drops into the '90s, presumably around the time of the Branch Davidian siege in Waco TX.

    Our leads have officially joined up with the cult and have been living on the compound for approximately 18 years. Catalina is seen as the second coming and is protected as such. The problem is that she doesn't believe any of the religious idealogy and even calls out the circumstances of her virgin birth as a lie.

    American Jesus #2 isn't as focused as the first installment and largely seems to be set up for the next issue. The come spend's it's time introduce key elements that I'm sure will play into the rest of the series. The nearest comparison I can make more
