This issue was even better than the first issue! In this issue, we find out more about Charlotte and her special talents and abilities. We get more information about her friend Poe. There is more revealed about The Hollow. In this issue, the action is immediate and pretty much continues that way throughout the whole comic book to the last page.
Though the art remains modest it is consistently good at showing expressions of emotion and highlighting major elements of the story. The art tells the story and accentuates various points of seriousness or danger in the tale.
As we have moved further in the story, we are learning more about what is driving Charlotte and Poe. We also learn that everything going on is much more serious and dangerous than the first issue led us to believe.
But that’s all I’m going to tell you. Otherwise, it will be ruined for you.
I feel that this story is building quickly and is well-written, obviously keeping the point of view of the reader in mind. Some writers may only see their vision and may not be able to step back and see the project from the audience’s point of view. This can pose some complications in communicating the gravity and emotion of a particular tale. This writer is clearly able to put their ideas together in a clear and comprehensive manner that is easy to follow and entertaining to read.
Overall, the second issue really makes me want to read issue three and see what happens. Things are getting pretty treacherous for some of our characters and the new things revealed in this issue are tasty little teasers for what is undoubtedly a wicked third issue to come.
I can safely recommend this to any horror or maybe even science fiction comic lovers.
