Featured Review: @TopCow Bushido #2 @ImageComics @RobLevin

Bushido #2 (of 5)


Only Kichiro knows the true scope of the bloody threat that faces feudal Japan - but nobody will believe him. With the recent slaying of his father, and his brother Orochi consumed with his impending marriage to the Shogun's daughter, Kichiro may be confined to a prison cell when the vampire onslaught begins.

Cover & Solicit 5/5

Once again we are treated to a beautiful cover drawn by the extremely talented Jessada Sutthi of Studio HIVE who also does the art for the issue.

Art, Colors & Inking 5/5

As I mentioned in my review for Bushido #1, the art that Jessada produces is extremely well done and a treat to the eyes. He gives each page excellent attention to detail and makes the book almost come alive in your hands.

Layout & Flow 5/5

The book had a very good flow to it. Rob Levin does a great job of telling the story without all the extra filler. The flow from image to image and page to page is excellently done due to both Jessada's art and the flow of dialogue and monologue that Levin provides for the story. Monologue and inner thoughts are some of my pet peeves, I hate when books use this as a way to tell extra story instead of letting the imagery and interactions between characters should be the forefront. Luckily Levin doesn't fall into this and lets the book tell the story not by Kichiro's inner thoughts.

Story 5/5

The issue is again written by Rob Levin (Mind the Gap, Witchblade, Darkness) who does an excellent job telling the story. We continue the story from last issue where Kichiro is accused by his brother Orochi for killing his father. Unable to accept the fate that will befall him, his lover and soon to be wife or Orochi, Mitsuko helps him escape. We then find Kichiro escaping and fighting off more of these "creatures" all the while his brother Orochi is hunting him down. When his brother and coming face to face with their fathers real killer, it doesn't phase Orochi as he still blames Kichiro. At the end of the issue we get ready for the wedding of Mitsuko and Orochi, but something sinister waits outside. Again we are lead on an exciting adventure that I just couldn't put down. One thing I hope Rob does in the next issue is flesh out the Vampires, a who are they and why are they here in Japan. I can't wait until next week, as I was done the final page I wanted the next issue to already be out.
