Topic: Comic Books - New
A while back I blogged about issues #0 & #1 of this series...
As seen at this archived blog post. Today I am blogging about the newest issue #2 which features the feature story "Jessica's Landing", as well as an additional story. Also 'Identities' is a 'sketchbook' style issue of pinups collected.
Actually, here is the 'press info' on what these two issue contain:
"Identities" is a pinup collection featuring the works of various artists depicting Haley in many different times and places throughout her journey through the temporal afterlife.
$4.50, 28 pgs, Reed, Various Artists
And for issue #2:
In "Jessica's Landing", Haley Lands as a maid, in 1925 Chicago, who must save a little girl who has been kidnapped by "The Outfit" in retaliation for her father's enormous gambling debts! Cameo By Al Capone! Then in "Dying Love", Haley Possesses a nurse in 1989 whose patient has already died... but this patient has looked forward to seeing her for a very long time!
$4.99, 32 pgs, Reed, Heufemann, Nixon, Siqueria, Silva, Nibbelink, Peron
I enjoyed the first two issues of this series, as I mentioned in my earlier blog post referred to above.
The 'Identities' issue is exactly what the press promo info says it is. This issue would be for hardcore fans of this series in my opinion. That doesn't mean I didn't like it, just that at $4.50 cover price, it doesn't continue the story arc further. It does contain artwork by recognized artists and is a good issue to add to this collection, should you have enjoyed the series thus far and would like to see other artist's renditions of the character and scenes.
The issue #2 main feature was well written and the artstyle interesting to view. It continued my respect for this series. The second story 'Dying Love' was a strange one... but an interesting read. This issue would be a good one to read AFTER reading the earlier two issues so you as a new reader would have a better understanding to the series, as there is no 'real' introduction for the new reader to this series with issue #2.
