As with all of this adaptation of A Clash of Kings we have stellar art by Mel Rubi, with Landry Walker preserving as much of Martin's dialogue. This leads to a comic with surprisingly more dialogue than the average comic. The great struggle for adapting numerous passages of A Clash of Kings are the various moments of dialogue and intrigue in the visual medium of comics. Rubi blocks the scenes exce more

Maria's journey from Issue #0 of the first series has been one phenomenal story. We have watched Maria go from a feared sniper to a Ubermensch goddess. This issue offers a strange mix of terror and optimism.

Picking-up on the first issue's introduction we see further painful incidents in the journey of comic creators.

Little optimism and joy was felt by these artists as they created work that would to their surprise and confusion become the cultural zeitgeist.

The series is a Roman a clef, as those more familiar with comics can easily guess who many of the characters are inspire more

Hey Kids! Comics! #2

Released: Sep 12, 2018

Secret Love. My Confession. Crime Does Not Pay.
