    Well, we're down two more (though because one of them was part of a two-person team, the rankings only go up by one,) but hoo boy, are there things going on under the surface. We already know"by virtue of the fact that he admitted the only reason he accepted Rankin's invitation in the first pace was because he was certain that whoever killed his husband was in the top-twenty"that Maxwell Bishop prefers the company of men, and issue #2 opens with a scene between Bishop and Rankin that takes a rather provocative turn. It will be interesting to see if that was a one-off or if it plays out. I'm anticipating a great deal more in-fighting between the members of the team, especially since Chad Fingerman has such an inflated opinion of himself, and Dave is, well...Dave. Read Full Review

    The second installment of Assassin Nation begins quietly, but that doesn't last long. As expected in a story about mob bosses and hired guns, it ends with quite a bang. These assassins for hire might not make the most interesting conversationalists, but at least we get some forward movement in the storyline and some distrust beginning to simmer between the remaining killers.

    If nothing else, Assassin Nation is pure, simple escapism catered to fans seeking a straight forward story of revenge. There's nothing wrong with that, on a surface level. However, with a bevy of books on the shelves garnering readers' attention, Assassin Nation may get lost in the shuffle for not providing the depth most mature readers have grown accustomed to.
