Review: King Tiger #2
King Tiger has secrets: dark truths about himself he dare not reveal. But his past—and his destiny—have been exposed, breaking the heart of the woman who loves him and pitting the mystic warrior alone against the Dragon and its demonic progeny who seek the blood of the Tiger!
Written by Randy Stradley, King Tiger #2 picks up where the last one left off. The issue rockets up the pace, managing to reveal some of Tiger’s dark lineage, and his great secret. All the while they hint to some extent of his destiny, and why he was born? They have yet to spill his blood, to unleash the evil that they summoned.
In contrast to the last issue, this one is filled mostly with action. However, that being said, there are a few panels that reveal some more of the backstory. Including Tiger’s father, mother, and his inhuman siblings.
The artwork by Doug Wheatley manages to highlight all of this in a superb way. Even some of the stranger things that take place, are well drawn with a careful attention to detail. Even the darker scenes are well laid out, and done with a nice balance of color.
