Resurrection Man continues to impress with this latest issue. When last we left Resurrection Man he had once again died, only to be resurrected with the ability to become water. Perhaps one of the coolest things about Resurrection Man as a comic is that the writers seem to be taking advantage of their hero’s abilities, and that is just what I wanted after reading the first issue. Understand, that each time Resurrection Man comes back with new abilities, he also returns from the grave with a new purpose nagging at his brain. This mechanic then leads him into new situations while still remaining a part of this crazy world the writers of this story have created.
I’m really digging the pacing of this particular comic. While constantly switching up the playing field with Mitch’s (Resurrection Man) abilities never remaining the same for very long, we also have new and interesting characters being added to the mix. Carmen and Bonnie, two ferociously hot women on the hunt for Resurrection Man aren’t the only new players we have this issue. Suddenly we’ve got demons, angels, shady organizations, all of this within the overarching mystery of the comic. It really is some good stuff and I am eagerly awaiting the next issue.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW?
There’s lots going on but the book never feels heavy or complicated. My advice would be to reread the first issue so as to keep the pace of the book fresh in your mind.
Buy it – This comic is off to a really good start and seems to only be getting more interesting with each page.
