Resurrection Man #2 (Abnett & Lanning & Dagnino):
Probably one of the most confusing stories to follow in the new 52. Though I’ve been a big fan of Abnett and Lannings work at Marvel, I can’t really say I am a huge fan of this series. I have no idea what is going on in the story or where things are supposed to go. I’m sure it is exceptionally hard to write a book about an amnesiac man with unknown powers but the lack of a status quo and concrete direction bothers me. At least there are sexy women hunting Mitch down for unknown reasons.
Though the story falls short, the art does a good job at picking up the slack. Every character is beautifully drawn. The hilarity of Darryl coming out as The Transhuman is wonderfully depicted and the esoteric sexiness of Mitch’s hunters is curiously satisfying.
The art and my curiosity keep me interested in this titles future.
Verdict: BUY (at least the collected if the story picks up in future issues)
