Review: Bolts #2
Life and death hang in the balance as the epic battle against the World Destroyer rages on! Tensions rise as the battle is joined… the question being: will these new combatants be friend or foe?? Frank’s journey continues through terrifying post-apocalyptic terrain in this re-envisioning of the legend of Frankenstein’s Monster by break out talent James Whynot.
In Bolts #2 the strange gets stranger, as this issue adds in more characters along with revealing some of how the world came to be a place inhabited by strange, behemoth animals. While it doesn’t reveal much, I’m curious to see what is coming in future issues. The issue adds more characters who seem to share a dash of red which is odd. Are they connected in some way? The coloring choice would have me to think so.
Sticking to the three color art style allows the issue and series to manage and create a slightly unique read. Whynot allows the natural violence and darkness of the story to stand out in superb fashion through the art. This issue ramps up on the gore and violence some with the opening scene. I’m curious to see how many of the strange new characters will continue to appear as more issues are released.
