Die #2

"FANTASY HEARTBREAKER," Part Two Remember last time, when we said "Goth Jumanji?" As the bleak, austere fantasy-horror ramps up, we start underlining the word "Goth" in black marker until we cut a hole through the page....

    The promise and potential Die #1 established started delivery with Die #2. First, the artwork is outstanding. Water-color vibes all around, and a strong use of color. Second, many of the interviews Gillen did between 1 and 2 mentioned his desire to investigate the underdeveloped...

    In the second issue, Gillen and Hans introduce readers to the fantasy world of Die as the players return to the old world. While the first issue had a few hints that this wasn't going to be your grandma's game of D&D, this issue is where it starts to get very dark. There's a lot mo...

    I'm so glad when world-building books like this have back matter. Knowing where Gillen pulled his ideas from and how he put them together just makes this story that much richer. This is my first real experience with Stephanie Hans' art and I am blown away. The color choices in this ...

    I?ve been looking forward to the release of this issue. Die #1 was an interesting introduction, but I really had no idea how they were planning on following it up. Die #2 read differently, but that?s mainly because they couldn?t use the same storytelling techniques as before. ...

    Five 40-something year old adults are plunged back into the fantasy world of their childhood; they've immediately resumed the appearances and roles of the world but retain the knowledge of their responsibilities and just want out. But the 6th friend... the one that was left behind, has...

    The first issue of this series was all set up. It pretty much covered the promo used to sell the book. A group of kids go missing, transported to a fantasy world. Most of them return, and we see them after the experience. It isn't until this issue where we get to start seeing the eleme...

    The story is interesting enough but to me going through the awfully written dialogue and narration, as it?s the only way of knowing what happens next, feels like torture. ...

    Pretty fucking great. The art is completely gorgeous. The ideas are interesting, and the backmatter essay on the worldbuilding was very fun. I'm getting a feel for the characters. Very interested to see where this goes. I kind of hope that the entire book isn't in the fantasy world, I'...

    Apparently Gillen is also making an actual RPG based on his ideas for this world/game. I'd really like to see and/or play that, the character classes alone seem really intriguing (he writes a bit longer about them in the afterword). Also real pretty. ...

    Still intense from ep.1 but a little less.. I like where this is going but the development of characters and the unveiling of the world elements slowed down of the feelings I got from the first issue. ...

    Whilst the visual feast may please thine eye, the narrative is mired by peculiar direction. Began with such sweet promise, now hold fast for course correction. ...

    Not getting better. The only interesting part was near the end with the cursed knight. I still don't like the art and the characterization is problematic. I'm dropping it... ...

    I don't know why I still get surprised when Kieron Gilles does it again. After reading The Wic + The Div I should expect the original fantasy world, the unspeakable mysterious aura and complex characters. And yet I am still impressed. The first issue intrigued me and had me wondering...

    It's super frustrating to have a pile of 20 comics I'm striving to read in a night, and I spend extra time going over an essay that Kieron Gillen wrote because I'm super interested in the subject matter. It was not really a choice, though, after Gillen gave us the intriguing classes th...

    Great job of establishing the world and what everyone can do. Can?t wait to hear Dominic/Ash talk more about their identity probably 10 issues from now. The thing I most appreciated here was the backmatter, which gave an RPG novice like me the information needed to understand the way...

    I imagine, that second issues are maybe harder than the first ones. The characters were established, you should know the general feeling of first 5-6 issues and it is time to progress the story. And that is exactly what Gillen does and doesn't. The structure is the same but feels di...

    Well this series keeps getting better and better. In a rare departure from form, I've refused to wait for the trade edition to follow this series, which says a lot about how desperate I am to know what happens. The author's notes are worth the price of admission too, this month's one f...

    Lays down some tantalizing foreshadowing, but also explains the character classes and some of the rules and the narrative structure of the world (of course the world has a narrative structure! it's a tabletop RPG). Okay, I may have read the bit with (view spoiler)[EYEWORM EX (hide...
