Images Unplugged reviewed Dark Engine #2 Aug 24, 2014
6.0

I really want to like this series. John Bivens' art is interesting and fits the story that Ryan Burton is trying to tell. The problem still lies in the actual story we are reading. This issue does better in fleshing out the story, but not enough IMO. We are told a story of a tribe worshiping Sym, before it goes back to her creators and learn about poison spores instead of Sym or the Death Engine. more

I really wanted to like this issue after seeing the trailer it seemed like it would have a nice Grindhouse vibe going for it, however Tazio Bettin's art and Victor Gishler's story are nothing spectacular. Bettin draws like any other UK/Heavy Metal artist. While not bad just not to my liking. Gishler on the other-hand has a great idea and concept going, but the main heroin just isn't interesting or more

The gang is back together. After a single issue hiatus Laura Braga is back with Betsy Gonia and Ron Marz. I'm glad to see her back and in full form with her beautiful rendition of the Witchblade. Ron Marz does a great job with the story, however I did find the initial jump right into action a little confusing considering where we left off last issue. This issue builds on the events from the first more

I really hoped for great things for the first issue of Dark Engine. From the first preview of Biven's art I was hooked. However the pacing and flow of the issue especially for being the first is really hard to follow. There are times of brilliance but for the most part I was left confused. Just as the story gets going we are left with 9 pages of fantastic art but with no clear idea of what just ha more
