    "Captain America: Living Legend" #2 manages to pull though the tricky situation of an artist switch without losing steam or quality. Andy Diggle still delivers a back-to-basics Captain America story that stays to true to the characteristics that define Steve Rogers. Agustin Alessio was brave to step up to the challenge of following Adi Granov, and succeeded by delivering art that is so good, it packs one wish that Alessio had a bit more of a visually dynamic story to work with. The issue still poses many questions, and hopefully the final two issues from Diggle and Alessio will answer them all. Read Full Review

    As with the first issue, the plot is nothing too terribly remarkable, and Andy Diggle doesn't really add any new wrinkles in this second issue. Cap is able to show off his unbreakable cool in a cool scene involving a HALO jump from suborbital heights, but otherwise he's a pretty bland and emotionless lead. Nor does his scientist sidekick add much to the equation. Diggle finds a bit more dramatic weight with Volkov, the mutated cosmonaut character. The flashbacks showcasing his transformation are easily the highlight of the issue, and hopefully the series will pick up steam as he and Cap finally meet face to face. Read Full Review

    Although this series hasn't improved much in this issue it would be more exciting and show a lot of promise for the second half of the series. It would also have some interesting interactions, as well as keep a mysterious tone throughout. There would also be some extravagant art throughout this issue and although the series hasn't been as good as I hoped it would be, it is starting to grow on me more. Due to this I'd recommend the issue, especially if you enjoy amazing art, but for the patient reader it's probably best to see how well the rest of the series is rated. Read Full Review
