Topic: Comic Books - New
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3804 - Today's blog is on the second volume of Rust by Royden Lepp. I've already review blogged Volume 1, as seen here in blog #3482, from August 11th of 2011.
So what is Volume 2, 'Secrets of the Cell' about?
Here's what the publisher has for the promo:
Picking up where the previous volume, Rust: Visitor in the Field, left off, after a second robot attack on the Taylor farm, Roman, Oswald, and Jet begin to seek answers to the mysteries of the past. Oswald becomes more and more suspicious of Jet’s connection to the robots, while Jet himself tries to connect with the flesh and blood family that has harbored him. Roman looks for comfort in his friendship with girl-next-door Jesse, but what he doesn’t know is that a new evil may be looming on the horizon for his family. Will they be ready when it comes?
Okay... That pretty much is it! Seriously... The above paragraph is basically what the book covers in this second volume!
But, and let me tell you... It is the art that really captivated me once again! The sepia toned panels in this book take me away to the story as it is happening... The layout of the pages, the insertion of the panels, whether one large or several small panels kept me once again very involved with the storyline!
The writing is simplistic, yet 'deep'...
I was really caught up with the action in the book, and the 'motion' scenes really grabbed me into the panels.
All in all, another good volume in this series by Royden! I am glad I met him at the 2011 San Diego Comic Con Internationa, (as seen to the left)l!
My grade for this book is a Near Mint (NM) 9.4 out of a possible 10.0 comic book grading scale!
Here is the info on the book for ordering:
Reading level: Ages 8 and up
Here is where you can get yourself a copy online: Rust Volume 2: Secrets of the Cell, in case your local comic book shop doesn't have a copy.
I for one am looking forward to seeing Volume 3 when it comes out!
