Whisp #2 by Damien Duffy & Dann Tincher
You probably canâ€™t tell at all by the scan, but the cover for this is slick. I mean that literally and figuratively, as thereâ€™s a different texture for the title and various other parts, and itâ€™s just neat. Had to get that out there. Also, this is a full size book, and I think the story is even longer, although itâ€™s been a while since I read #1, so I could be wrong. The art looks a LOT better in this large format, and the writing seems to have tightened up a bit too. My main problem with the book is that I have trouble getting whatâ€™s going on at times. Itâ€™s so dark that itâ€™s occasionally hard to distinguish certain characters, and at least a few things happen that youâ€™re just supposed to get without their describing it. Thereâ€™s a new character in this, a man whoâ€™s worried about his nagging wife and trying to get the future out of one of the inmates. I did tell you that some of them could read the future when theyâ€™re on the drug, right? Anyway, I couldnâ€™t tell at all what happened in the end (unless thatâ€™s intentional), but itâ€™s a solid book all around. They seem to be keeping my complaints to a minimum, so thatâ€™s all I can ask for.
