And, in the aftermath of the attack on his transport, Jack tries to find a way into Paradiso but wanders into a close encounter of the weird kind. Powerful forces are on the move in Paradiso City, but to what end?

Yeah, there's one thing you'll learn about 'Diso soon enough. The stories you hear-especially the scary kind-tend to be true.

    An interesting and action-packed continuation, Paradiso #2 raises new questions about the city, Jacks mission, and neatly starts to flesh out the villains. Although those wanting concrete answers to burning plot questions may be left a little disappointed, the subtler approach to storytelling employed here is by far a preferred narrative choice for me, and as such, I am definitely looking forward to the next issue. Paradiso #2 is out tomorrow from Image Comics. Read Full Review

    Nobody said getting to paradise would be easy - and to be honest, no one said reading Paradiso would be easy, either. There's a singular, idiosyncratic voice that informs writer Ram V and artist Devmalya Pramanik's work, and for those who enjoy the weird post-apocalyptic sci-fi vibe this series is putting out, it'll be off to the races.

    I really wanted to like Paradiso #2 after a promising premiere issue and an epic flashback sequence showing the rapid transition from hope and optimism in technology to death and cynicism, but the half-baked characters and sluggish plot (Rooftop chase aside.) means I won't be making a return journey to this world.
