    Patrick Kindlon adds a little more backstory to the plot as we see a few supervillains observing FM's latest stunts. The discussion between FM and Galaxie Prime is a lot of fun and very current as GP describes themself as being non-binary, which is a fun and interesting commentary on gender politics and identity.

    Frontiersman #2 moves the overarching plot forward with our hero deciding to come out of retirement as a climate advocate. The series seems to be setting up the angle that Frontiersman’s return to the public is also drawing his friends and foes out of retirement. In this sense, this issue reminded me a lot of Frank Miller's set up in “The Dark Knight Returns”.

The characters of Frontiersman are also more nuanced than you’d get in most stories covering this subject matter.

    The majority of the issue features our hero battling more
