Brilliant #2 (Climbed that mountain Spoilers)

It’s been so long since #1 that I had kind of forgotten what was going on, but this is a strong concept and I quickly got back into it, and found that this was an improvement over #1, and that was a comic I liked anyway. You knew what was coming with the Casino scene, but it was still very well done, especially since I hate Casinos and how violently they protect themselves. Card-counting isn’t illegal or cheating, it’s just playing the game well, but the Casinos still beat people up for doing it! Corruption at it’s finest. It also felt like the characters in this book got a much-needed fleshing out here, so we saw that Kindred has issues with a pushy parent, as well as trouble talking to women, and that Izzy has no such troubles, and even fucked a lecturer! In the words of South Park… nice. Bagley’s art was Bagley art, and with the introduction of the FBI into the mix, things are stepping up a bit, let’s just hope #3 comes along a little quicker, because I don’t want to spend the first 4 pages of each issue slowly remembering things.
