Comic Book Reviews - After Twilight #2 Review
Category: Comic Book Reviews
Writer: Gary L. Watson w/ Richard P. Alvarez & Sandra E. Yates
Now, I put the page count at 29. The main story is 26 pages, but there are two sketches at the end, along with a message from writer Gary L. Watson. The letter was of particular interest, as it explained the inspiration for the story and, more importantly, the meaning of the story. If you read my review for issue 1, my take on their intentions was pretty accurate, which I think speaks to the teams storytelling prowess to be able to convey such a clear message in one issue. In a nutshell, and I can’t stress this enough, After Twilight is not out to bash Christianity. If anything is being bashed, it is all forms of Extremism and those who are insistently ignorant no matter how little sense it makes to be so. Kudos AT team. If I had one complaint though, where are all my Sparkly pretty vampires and shirtless teen-wolves?(Had to)
Bottom line(cause Stonecold said so): I’m now a third of the way through this series(as it is a 6-part miniseries), and I have truly no clue where it’s going. That says a lot! I’m constantly guessing what will happen next, I’m often right. And as of now, no clue where issue 3 will take me, let alone issue 6. If you’re in the market for deep, dark storytelling, and a commentary on society(and a well delivered one at that) You’ll want to check out this series. So far, not one page has been anything less than vital.
