“GHOST WAR,” Part Two
A squad of Buffalo Soldiers has been tasked with relocating a captured Cheyenne Chief, but their way is blocked by a mission of vengeance, and the ghosts of the tallgrass prairie.
Image Comics presents the latest issue in the new story arc from writer John Arcudi (RUMBLE & B.P.R.D.). And the art team of Valerio Giangiordano, Giovanna Niro and Michael Heisler. With variant Cover art from Well-Bee.
John Arcudi absolutely excelled with Volume 1 of Two Moons. And I am happy to say that Volume 2 looks to be another winner. Whilst Virgil ‘Two Moons’ Morris seems to be less prominent in this issue, I’m sure that his role in this series will be ever-present. And given the Horrors that are lurking on the plains, it will be only a matter of time before the medicine man will have to summon all his power to fight back against the Ghost War.
What is there to say about Valerio Giangiordano’s artwork other than fantastic! The level of detail is absolutely sublime. I found myself in awe of the panels where the Buffalo Soldiers are caught in an ambush and just marvelled at the accuracy of the ensuing bloodbath. Giovanna Niro has taken over from Bill Crabtree with the colour work. And his is much in keeping with his predecessor in that it matches the artwork perfectly in its subtlety and feels like it is in keeping with the time period.
Another great issue from John Arcudi. And I really enjoyed how he gave introduction to the Buffalo Soldiers, bringing in historic significance to the book. The storyline is thoroughly intriguing as it balances history, horror and racial inequality and doesn’t shy away from the latter. And with the fantastic cliff-hanger, I am desperate for the next instalment of this series. Arcudi and Giangiordano really work well together and it shows. Fans of horror/western should be picking this book up if they haven’t already!
