Thanks to Paul J Salamoff for the review copy!
After a couple months of waiting, I finally got to read the second issue of Hired Guns from writer Paul J. Salamoff and artist Ana Teresa Rivera. The first issue kept my eyes glued to the issue and the second one does the same page for page. It’s like watching a thrilling action adventure, but you’re reading it.
Chapter Two follows the team to a high-tech convention at a hotel in Las Vegas where Lennox runs into an old friend Natasha Krutov and clearly the tension is met with hardened glances. It’s hard to write a review without giving away too many spoilers, but issue two is full of more action than the first and certainly takes you into a more compelling story. I particularly like that the book follows the team in what seems to be more personal and individual missions, rather than group work. Each character is tasked with what they know best and that make for a more entertaining read and is very film like in origin.
The only thing I didn’t care for in this issue was that it went by so fast and it seemed a little anti-climatic as far as how it ended. That’s the purpose of an ongoing comic book though they must keep you wanting more week to week and month to month. I give this issue an 8 out of 10, the first issue of course was way better because we get introductions and set ups but I still can’t wait for the third issue to come out.
You can find the first and second issues of Hired Guns on on comiXology for $0.99 and $2.99 respectively.
