To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
... by which I mean, hiring Al Ewing to write his (Ennis') Huntress knock-off rather than phoning it in himself like he did with the first volume. Ewing - fresh from anarchic romps like Zombo and a fine stint as possibly the only non-Wagner Judge Dredd writer to nail the character out of the gate - is clearly hungry to prove himself and does so by running the crazy train off the rails as a ruthless vigilante finds her carefully-maintained dual identity come unstuck in the face of terrible neighbors, a vengeful father, Brangelina analogues with some truly inspired dialogue, and a private military force led by the Big Lebowski closing in on the peaceful suburban lie Jen uses to hide from the fact that she is an awful, awful person. The art isn't quite up to the standard of the story and seems just short of professional, needing attention from an experienced inker to help it ditch the Darick Robertson influence, and the abrupt ending and "to be continued" is a clumsy finish to an otherwise outstanding sophomore effort, though granted it may be that the story was designed for serialized reading rather than the trade collection, a rarity in these elevator pitch obsessed times but still not a great way to finish the book, so ending with Ewing's very entertaining commentary on the first issue was quite welcome even if the pin-ups of large-breasted manga ladies that accompany it (an alternate cover gallery) are not.
If you liked the first volume of Jennifer Blood, this is for you. Jennifer's goal is pure damage control now. At least to her knowledge. But violence is still her method of choice, and the consequenses of her actions get to bee more dire for her and her surroundings. All the more interesting to us.
