    Lots of Action; Still Building the WorldThis is the second issue in this series and we spend most of our time escaping, hiding, getting the layout of Cemetery Beach, and being clued in by our hero's new rebel/assassin/freedom-fighter sidekick/guide.

This is one of those deals where you really want to start with Issue #1 in order to get into the setup on the ground floorThe world building here is clever and intriguing and there are lots of hints that the story and plot are going to get deeper, more complex, and more satisfying as the series progresses. The hero has a nice macho/sardonic vibe and the tough-girl rebel has a nice balance of humor, impatience, and edge. The drawing is energetic, although a lot of the scenes are dark, (literally). This world is supposed to have a grey, post-Stalinist, vaguely Nazi, 1984-ish feel, and that generally works and stays true. The action sequences are a little fantastic, (doesn't anyone ever at least twist an ankle falling three stories?), but who cares about that?The upshot is that this is just the second piece in what feels like a much larger puzzle, but the series certainly seems like it's going to continue going to interesting places.(Please note that I had a chance to read a free ecopy of this comic without a review requirement, or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.)

    Oh yeah. This series is a winner. The art by Howard is a perfect compliment to Ellis's writing style. Loved it in Trees, love it here. The page in this issue where they're crawling through the tunnels. Geez. That was just wonderful.

    Had to re-read the first three pages to tie the story together but still seems like fun!
