Review: Cryptocracy #2
The Nine Families have ruled civilization from the shadows for time beyond memory. But now, for the first time, they are being hunted. Family leaders begrudgingly forge an alliance to discover the hunter’s identity, but in so doing only place themselves in greater danger.
Written by Van Jensen, Cryptocracy manages to mix conspiracy theories, secret societies, and so much more. In this issue, the shadows are pulled back some, as a mysterious, but powerful being begins to fight back. Who, and what, is Chronos? Given what his name comes from, I’m curious to see what the organization decides to do and where Jensen takes things from here.
I will admit there is some interesting shocks in this issue, but I won’t spoil them. They make for surprising sights from artist Pete Woods, that I doubt you will miss. The mysterious Hum, seems to get more colorful with each issue, despite the briefness of his appearances.
A riddle of a series that gets better with each issue.
