The second issue of Electric Warriors is a bit of a step down from the first. But that is an almost inevitable occurrence. The first issue got to blow the reader away as it introduced the time period and the situation. This issue spends more time introducing some of the characters, and getting the fights started.
Thankfully, Travel Foreman’s art is of such exceptional quality that the characters could probably be sitting around picking lint out of their navels and it would still be worth looking at.
And I am not meaning to slag Orlando’s script. I very much enjoyed the character development, and the use of Khunds and Dominators. For me, the more Legion touches the better.
But it is a second issue, and prey to the usual “problems.” Still, considering this will probably be the weakest issue of the miniseries, it’s still a book I had a lot of fun reading, and I am still looking forward to the rest of the run.
If I had to make a suggestion (and since I have to think of something more to say in this review, it seems I must), I would have wanted a bit more from the Kamandi past to be played with. I am as engaged with this transitional world as I am with the characters inhabiting it, and I would love to see it explored in greater detail.
But no matter what, I am still looking forward to the match set up on the final page, taking place in the next issue.
