‘Outcast, Vol. 2’ – Comic Book Review

25570825

Outcast, By Robert Kirkman known for Walking Dead created another horror series that leans more on The Exorcist then zombies. The main character Kyle has been plagued by demonic possession for most of his life. In light of recent revelations, he finally feels like he’s starting to piece together the answers he’s looking for. That is basically the premise of the first book.

And Unfortunately it’s also the premise for this book as well. Still it may not be as great as the first volume I’m still happy with this series. The art in this book is still fantastic. I continue to get creepy vibes from the villains of this series. Also the whole atmosphere of this book is very shady and keeps me enthralled into the story. I’m now invested into these characters. There are characters in this book where I feel sorry for them and then a little later I actually laugh at there antics. Its what Robert Kirkman is known for. He truly knows how to write great characters. His talents in storytelling is a different story (oh god i can’t believe i did this) all together.

The first half of this book is very slow and you don’t really learn much in this volume. When the two main characters continue to visit possessed people we still don’t get any answers. Granted its the intention of the story. But when it drags out for a whole volume it becomes a disappointment almost like Kirkman’s dragging his feet on the narrative. However the book does pick up on the last two issues in the volume and it really has me hyped for what comes next.

Outcast, Vol. 2: A Vast And Unending Ruin is a good book. Nothing special but its still good. The story moves slowly, but most of the second half of this volume was amazing and the story should be leaning more toward some action and answers soon.
