Some thoughts about The Wild Storm #2
Several important people around the planet are preparing their own plans, something is coming and they need to be prepared for it.
This story continues and in many aspects, it follows the same route as in the first issue.
Warren Ellis delivers a new chapter where he developes more of the cast he's working on. There are several new and classic key players that Wildstorm fans will immediately recognize, each one of them with their own background. The good thing about the writing is that Ellis leaves subtle hints about their personalities and motivations, nothing is in your face but he gives enough clues to know where the characters are going while progressing the plot.
That being said, the plot still progresses very slowly. Ellis is definitely taking his time building up these characters before developing more of the story itself. I mean, the story moves a bit but is not as important as creating the world in which the cast lives.
Jon Davis-Hunt handles the artwork and is once again, pretty solid with a expressive and clean style that creates a lot of detail for both characters and environments.
Interesting but still not quite there, let's see how it continues.
