Barbarella has been lied to. Worse, she’s been weaponized, and someone’s going to answer for that, for sure. (Well, assuming she survives the judgement of the Esseverine sun-giants, and an armada of a thousand ships…)

Who can you really trust? Now on the inside of the Rover gang that runs Bayport’s criminal world, Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys turn to a black sheep brother to guide them through it all. But as they put together a sting operation, are they the ones that will be stung?

Review: Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys: The Big Lie #2

Nancy-Hardy-002-Cov-A-TILT-DaltonAnthony Del Col and Werther Dell’Edera’s Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys: The Big Lie is back. The first issue set up the murder of Fenton Hardy, and having become suspects in their father’s murder, Frank and Joe turn to their old friend, Nancy Drew for help with the case.

Readers were briefly introduced to Nancy at the end of the first issue, and #2 further develops her character. Nancy is the coolest cucumber in all of Bayport, and has a plan to draw out Fenton Hardy’s murderer with Frank and Joe’s help.

Originally, I was apprehensive about the series focusing on the murder of a family member, but the team (so far) has stayed away from a tropey Quest For Vengeance. In a world where Quests For Vengeance are a dime a dozen, I can’t describe how glad I am that the Hardy boys aren’t going full John Wick–those stories have their time and place, just not in this comic.

There are a lot of things consistent with the originals, and while Del Col and Dell’Edera’s take on this new story is a little darker than anything published by Stratemeyer Syndicate, it’s enjoyable. Del Col has elaborated a little on bits of information that were included in every book, like Frank and Joe’s family history and Nancy’s relationship with her father after her mother died.

Plot-wise, this series is paced well, with a good balance of background information and an actual plot. There isn’t a lot of filler, which is a bonus. In this issue, Nancy has come up with a plan to infiltrate a mob family in order to mine them for information about the murder. In addition to furthering the murder plot, readers learn more about Nancy and the town of Bayport.

Dell’Edera’s art has the same almost-vintage feel as issue #1. In Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys #2, though, we get to see a bit more range from Dell’Edera and colorist Stefano Simeone. Dell’Edera’s fashion is particularly of note–it’s a rare and pleasant surprise to see an artist pay as much attention to fashion as is done in this comic. Simeone’s color palettes are absolutely beautiful throughout the comic, turning the art into a visual feast.

Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys could have easily been a grim and dark reboot of an older property, but the art and colors keep it from ever approaching the Too Gritty mark. The series is an entertaining read, with plenty of nods to the source material that are fun Easter eggs for familiar readers.

Nancy Drew has a killer plan. In order to clear their names from accusations of their father’s murder, she and the Hardy Boys will have to infiltrate a family of petty thieves — by beating them at their own (card) games!

The classic characters dive deeper into the seedy underbelly of a tourist-town — and they begin to find out if they’re really able to go bad in order to do good.

ALL-NEW ARC! ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT! “LABYRINTH” starts now!

Across six millennia, Gilad Anni-Padda – an immortal warrior sworn to forever serve the Earth – has felled zealots and madmen, emperors and tyrants in the course of his duty. But nothing he’s faced yet can prepare him to run the “LABYRINTH” – a miles-long maze of horrors specifically designed to undermine his every strength, enhance his every weakness…and to send him screaming into the darkness of death at every turn. But what kind of brilliant but twisted psyche could have possibly conceived such a monument to terror…and for how many centuries have they plotted to break the mind and body of history’s most formidable soldier?

The answer lies at the heart of the “LABYRINTH” itself…and as Gilad endures a gauntlet of cutting-edge technology and sharpened steel, he’ll soon discover why the merciless figure known only as THE DYING ONE has singled the Eternal Warrior out for the ultimate deathtrap.

He will run. He will suffer. And when his ordeal is ended, the Eternal Warrior’s place in the Valiant Universe will be forever altered as New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH) and visionary artist Raúl Allén (Hawkeye) unleash an all-new epic for Valiant’s immortal master of war!
