After years apart, Frances Shaw (now a medical doctor) and Virgil Two Moons (now a Pawnee shaman) are once again drawn to each other on the eve of an impending crisis.
Image Comics presents the fantastic new story arc from writer John Arcudi (RUMBLE & B.P.R.D.) and the art team of Valerio Giangiordano, Bill Crabtree and Michael Heisler. With variant Cover art from Ryan Sook.
John Arcudi continues as writer after what was an intriguing first story arc. And he sets the scene again some twenty years after the horrific events of the American Civil War. Virgil ‘Two Moons’ Morris returns as protagonist and reunites in unusual circumstances with Frances Shaw. Despite not having seeing each other in near two decades they will have to come together as something sinister is stirring on the plains. Arcudi sets his stall out well and I am certainly intrigued to see how this story arc progresses.
The artwork from Valerio Giangiordano is really superb and there’s a couple of panels that really stood out for me as they have both Frances and Two Moons in the foreground and the oversized flashbacks in the background. Amazing work. Especially the level of detail on everything in the book from the random items in the cabin to the snowstorm itself. And it is the latter which really sets the scene of desolation and hopelessness in the face of the elements.
It’s always interesting to see how a new story arc will stand up to the predecessor and especially given how well received the first was. But I’m happy to say that John Arcudi continues on his rich vein of writing form and everything that was successful in Volume 1. of Two Moons continues here. His gripping story is matched perfectly with the artwork of Giangiordano and Crabtree and their influence really brings the story to life. Fans of horror books should be picking this up as a matter of course.
