Much better than the first issue, as the characters get a little bit more fleshed out, the science is less confusing, and Hickman lets loose a little more. I really enjoyed the few pages of text where Richard Dorne (Game Of Thrones reference?) discusses war with the ancient Aztec or whatever he is. Although Hickman does have this penchant for inserting random text pieces for no reason, like in SHIELD Volume 1 #2, where a conversation between Leonid and Da Vinci is shown in text only for no conceivable reason, just strange. The ending to this issue was amazing too, I complained in my review of #1 that we had no idea who our heroes were fighting, and it turns out there was a very good reason for that, our heroes don’t know themselves, and when it’s revealed at the end… it’s a shock. Nick Pitarra’s art was awesome again, he’s going to be big.
