Review – Anti #2
12 Gauge Comics’ Anti is one of the newest series from Gale Anne Hurd. Anti #2, written by Peter Calloway and art by Daniel Hillyard. The second issue picks up right where the first left off. Zachary is an expert at running from his past, but the future is his biggest problem now—even if he doesn’t know it yet. While his new powers continue to manifest, demon-hunter Jordan has no choice but to form an alliance with Zachary, or risk certain death. And while their relationship grows, questions about Charles Emmanuel and his ‘message’ continue to be asked.
The series is good, there’s something entertaining about it that has me interested in seeing what happens next. The issue is really cut into two parts, the follow up from the end of the first issue as well as setting up what happens next. We get a better sense as to who these characters are, their motivations and a bit of the mystery surrounding the series unfolds.
The are is pretty good, the coloring stands out to me out of everything. The art is ok, not bad, but doesn’t quite blow me away. Out of everything, it’s the story that really has me interested. There’s some nice ties to biblical stories and while the subject and plot is familiar, it seems to be a popular one, how it’s presented and the characters introduced makes this stand out.
If you like the idea of angels and demons battling it out on earth, this is a series well worth checking out.
