Review: The Stone King #2

The Stone King #2

The world is filled with “quicksand” and you may never know when you have stepped into it.  There is the literal sense of the word which most people only see in movies. Then there’s the metaphorical version, one which envelopes you when you least expect it. These are things throughout life that cause panic.

The first time I ever heard about it was in a movie called The Replacements starring Keanu Reeves and a now retired Gene Hackman. The way Reeves’ character described it in one scene is about getting so deep in trouble that you lose all senses. It was not until I joined the military and been in some near-death experiences that I felt what that sense of urgency was. In the second issue of The Stone King, we find Ave seeing firsthand the wrath she has unleashed.

We pick right up after the Stone King has invaded the city looking for what Ave took from him. As everything around her crumbles, she looks to save everyone she cares for. As Ave looks for healing moss to help someone close to her she soon gets arrested for looting. As the city guard humors Ave, he soon realizes that she may be the only hope city has before being totally demolished.

Overall, the second issue is action packed that’s a turning point for the series and happens to introduce us to some new characters. The story by Kel McDonald is lighthearted at points and heavy at other moments. The art by Tyler Crook is vivid and alluring. Altogether, it’s an excellent second issue that should bring in new fans.
