    Green Wake is back! I can honestly say I'm not disappointed either. Normally when you have a relaunch or a continuation of a series, well, things change. Green Wake isn't any different. There are some major differences in the town now compared to the first original five issues, but they're not necessarily a bad thing. I am sad to say that the original tradition of answering one question and having three more pop up is still going strong. Wiebe insists on keeping the reader hooked by giving minute amounts of information, as he should. From a reading standpoint, I want to know. Luckily, it doesn't look like Green Wake is going anywhere, so it appears like we'll continue to get new answers in every issue. This story arc, "Lost Children" takes place after the original Green Wake though, so I'd suggest reading those five before starting on this one, since it's a continuation rather than a new storyline.

    Green Wake is a really dense book that is packed with intrigue, character work, and mystery. The first arc proved this without a shadow of a doubt, and it looks like this second arc is going to be more of the same, which is a good thing. If you haven't had the pleasure of reading this title, I would strongly recommend giving Green Wake #6 a shot. Read Full Review

    The most impressive thing both Wiebe and Rossmo have managed to do here, however, is to wrap up their initial arc and then effortlessly pick it up here so that it still feels organic and not like some desperate attempt to keep the magic going. No, they've still got the magic, and there's nothing desperate about it. Read Full Review

    Since the first arc ended I have been waiting for the new issue of Green Wake with much anticipation and I am delighted to say that it did not disappoint. I am more than ready for more strange storytelling and awesome art. Read Full Review
