Review: Deluge #2

Deluge_#2In case you missed the review of issue #1, Deluge is the story of an undercover FBI Agent trapped in New Orleans and on the run from a group of rogue cops in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina written by J.D. Oliva and illustrated by Richard P. Clark.

In Deluge’s post-Katrina New Orleans, some cops are crooked, some criminals are not what they seem and Hurricane Katrina might just prove to be one of the lesser problems this poor town has to worry about.

The plot thickens as the N.O.P.D open fire on a pair of men on a rooftop, only for one to escape.This pivotal plot point draws the line in the sand for who is in, who is out and who is playing a whole other game in the conspiratorial plot that was introduced in issue one and deepens in issue 2.

It keeps its cynical view of police brutality and the uselessness of bureaucracy to the point of out-and-out corruption in the highest ranks of America’s first line of defense and ties it all into a in a cliff hanger you won’t see coming.
