“Deadworld: Restoration” #2 Review
Writer: Gary Reed
Artist: Sami Makkonen
Release Date: 1/1/2014
Rating: 8 out of 10
Synopsis: Dan makes a prisoner of Deake, the crazed lunatic who claims he unleashed the supernatural holocaust, while Bowker is forced to come to Moloch for a trade as the Dead Killer hunts for the flesh-peeling creature known as Mosaic.
Our Thoughts: Where do I begin? There’s so much going on in this issue. I never like to give out spoilers, especially when I truly believe horror comic fans should pick up the comic I’m wiriting about. Needless to say there are many twists
and turns in the storyline. I like Reed’s style of injecting some humor, along with tense and surprising moments. There are some scenes that are pretty grandiose and I would even say worthy of a film. Reed really brings it in “Deadworld: Restoration” #2.
By jumping to different subplots, he’s building up the suspense for a huge climax to come.
As for the artwork, Makkonen nails it. His style is the perfect complement to Reed’s plot. From the craziest and goriest of chaos and creatures, to the brooding tones he uses, Makkonen’s work in Deadworld is spot on and eye catching.
Coming out on New Year’s Day, “Deadworld: Restoration” #2 should be on every horror comic fan’s pull list.
