    Kelly Sue Demonic, Emma R os and Jordie Bellaire have done it again The second volume of Pretty Deadly, just like the first one, is a masterpiece of visual storytelling.In this second book, the story jumps ahead a couple of decades, and we are in the middle of World War I Sissy is the new Death Cyrus has grown up and is a soldier, fighting in France His mother Sarah, the woman who pulled Sissy out from the sea of blood in the first book, is dying, but, thanks to one of the reapers, she was g Kelly Sue Demonic, Emma R os and Jordie Bellaire have done it again The second volume of Pretty Deadly, just like the first one, is a masterpiece of visual storytelling.In this second book, the story jumps ahead a couple of decades, and we are in the middle of World War I Sissy is the new Death Cyrus has grown up and is a soldier, fighting in France His mother Sarah, the woman who pulled Sissy out from the sea of blood in the first book, is dying, but, thanks to one of the reapers, she was given time until the next full moon so that Cyrus could come to her and say goodbye That s the premise, and I don t want to spoil anythingthan that, but I will say that the story in this book is much simpler andstraightforward compared to the first one And that is actually a good thing, because volume one was a bit hard to follow sometimes Still, the story has that signature melancholic feeling, and Kelly Sue s narrative is beautiful, philosophic and touching, as always.But the real stars of the show, again, are Emma R os and Jordie Bellaire and their incredible, gorgeous artwork R os s layouts are mind bending and insanely imaginative She is an artist in a league of her own, and the only comparison I can make is maybe to the great J H Williams III, and specifically his work on Sandman Overture And Bellaire s colours, as always, are genius She is one of the greatest colourists in the industry, and if for some insane reason you don t believe that, just look at Pretty Deadly Together, they create one of the most gorgeous comics in the history of comics.So, what else is there to say I love Pretty Deadly, and I am very happy that the series lives on This second volume has been a long time coming, and now I am very interested to see what comes next It seems like they re going to use the American Vampire esque concept of exploring different time periods in every volume, which I think is a great idea for this series I only hope it won t take quite as much time to get there, although with the artwork like this, the delays are completely understandable

    MINOR SPOILERS INCLUDEDHaving enjoyed the splatter tastic villainy of Osborn, I was curious to see whatever glorious conception writer Kelly Sue DeConnick and artist Emma R os came up with Under the publication of Image Comics, the first volume of Pretty Deadly had a unique presentation on how it mashed up the Western genre with the fairy tale, and as a combination of muddled storytelling and luscious art, there was enough interest to see where the story will take us.Once again, told by a skele MINOR SPOILERS INCLUDEDHaving enjoyed the splatter tastic villainy of Osborn, I was curious to see whatever glorious conception writer Kelly Sue DeConnick and artist Emma R os came up with Under the publication of Image Comics, the first volume of Pretty Deadly had a unique presentation on how it mashed up the Western genre with the fairy tale, and as a combination of muddled storytelling and luscious art, there was enough interest to see where the story will take us.Once again, told by a skeleton bunny to a butterfly, years after Ginny s road of vengeance, the children of a dying Sarah Fields beg Sissy, now assuming the mantle of Death, for onefull moon so she may say goodbye to her youngest son Cyrus who is fighting for the French in the First World War.Although you do get reprisals from the Reapers, they are somewhat sidelined by Cyrus ordeal in the trenches With this human story taking centre stage, this is a step up for DeConnick who crammed so many ideas in the first volume, it was hard to keep up Despite a few quibbles such as a number of characters vague participation as well as once again another generic villain in the form of the Reaper of War, this is acoherent story which questions humanity s need of war, through the folkloric storytelling from its fantasy characters.Following the spaghetti western landscapes of Volume 1, the setting of World War I is evenunsettling as Emma R os doesn t strike that same chord of beauty as her art is murkier andabstract than before, which at times looks great on splash pages, but less so with action filled panels As for Jordie Bellaire who previously applied a European colour palette that you don t associate with the Western genre, her choice of colours here is a very dark palette contrasting with bright red, which is oddly appropriate to the grim nature of the book.Following the jam packed storytelling of the previous volume, Kelly Sue DeConnick steps up her game with a touching human story set in the midst of war, whilst Emma R os art is good but isn t as visually striking as before Things still remain weird though and I look forward to Volume 3

    Bullet Review Artwork is stunning as hell I wish the story wasn t so inscrutable but it IS much clearer than volume 1.I d be down with reading volume 3 I ve read far worse.

    Pretty Deadly epitomizes the dark folklore that is inherent to a desert it is that tear in the veil that happens just as the sun sets and the barren ground rapidly loses its day time heat The instant, sweeping change of desert night is inherently different than nightfall in a forest, or in the mountains, or in a wind whipped valley Sit alone and listen the night rushing in around you, or the trickle in behind mountain peaks, or encompass you like a blanket, see how it changes your perspectiv Pretty Deadly epitomizes the dark folklore that is inherent to a desert it is that tear in the veil that happens just as the sun sets and the barren ground rapidly loses its day time heat The instant, sweeping change of desert night is inherently different than nightfall in a forest, or in the mountains, or in a wind whipped valley Sit alone and listen the night rushing in around you, or the trickle in behind mountain peaks, or encompass you like a blanket, see how it changes your perspective in different settings Pretty Deadly is a desert full of death, and beauty, and naked mysticism and its utterly gorgeous.The story line is maze, the script is gorgeous, and the art work is breathtaking I just spent two days in the National Gallery of Art staring at my favorite paintings, and I find myself as equally mesmerized by the artwork in both Pretty Deadly Volumes.5 out of 5 stars, no question about it

    I had already read a few of the issues from this volume, so I kind of knew what I thought about it as a whole, but being able to see the images in larger format rather than on the tiny phone screen meant that they came out a lot clearer and I was able to pick up on some of thesubtle nuances easier such as figures hidden in swirls of smoke This story still keeps in theme with the first volume, but the tone of this one is much darker andsinister We are oncefollowing Sissy Reap I had already read a few of the issues from this volume, so I kind of knew what I thought about it as a whole, but being able to see the images in larger format rather than on the tiny phone screen meant that they came out a lot clearer and I was able to pick up on some of thesubtle nuances easier such as figures hidden in swirls of smoke This story still keeps in theme with the first volume, but the tone of this one is much darker andsinister We are oncefollowing Sissy Reaper of Death but here she s in a war against various other Immortal beings such as War, Cruelty and Vengeance This story claims that war comes about because of these beings and this is not something Sissy will sit back and watch needlessly, so the battle between them begins We also follow the story of Sarah who is an old woman and is dying Her son, Cyrus, is far away fighting in the trenches and his family want him home to say a fond farewell to Sarah before she dies Sarah is given until the next full moon for Cyrus to come home by one of the Immortal Reapers This volume felt easier to understand than the first one and I think it s a little simpler overall The artwork is just as complex and filled with hidden meanings and silhouettes which haverelevance as the story goes on, but the actual text is a littledirect.What I liked most was, as always, the artwork, particularly for issue 6 which is the first in this volume as I think that made the whole story come to life Emma Rios did a great job of recreating the Reapers and the different landscapes in various colours and sometimes we would have blood red dominating the war pages, sometimes lurid green to indicate the presence of Reapers and so on I believe that this series is a good one overall I did enjoy volume 1than volume 2 personally, but I will still continue onto volume 3 when that comes out as I just adore the art and the story does come second for me I would have liked the story to be a littlewhimsical overall and have less emphasis on trivialising the war as though it s just an Immortal s playground I think there was room to give a lotmeaning and depth to the plot than just that, but I felt the mark was slightly missed so I ended up giving it a 3.5 s overall

    Well drawn and written, but I d be lying if I said I understood it

    Oh gosh Maybe jumping straight into this second volume without any refresher on the first isn t the best idea.So we ve got most of the same characters but jump ahead a few decades into World War I Confusion ensues There s some narrative confusion, but also I just had a really hard time deciphering some of the art And honestly, I couldn t care less It s just beautiful It s kind of the same feeling I had when I was reading Sandman Overture Even though the art is entirely different Ya know Oh gosh Maybe jumping straight into this second volume without any refresher on the first isn t the best idea.So we ve got most of the same characters but jump ahead a few decades into World War I Confusion ensues There s some narrative confusion, but also I just had a really hard time deciphering some of the art And honestly, I couldn t care less It s just beautiful It s kind of the same feeling I had when I was reading Sandman Overture Even though the art is entirely different Ya know, it s like, dude, not meant to be fully understood, maannn.So I guess that s what I want to say about this series It s beautiful The storytelling, the illustrations, the concepts, the dialogue It s just beautiful So it s a worthy trade off for a little bit of confusion.On another note, I gotta stop reading so many comics with the personification of Death it s getting to be a bit much

    Wow This book made me strangely emotional towards the end Loved it I love books that a feature Death as a character, and b are about the beauty there is in it Not saying that Death isn t hard and cruel, but it is also beautiful The artwork was GORGEOUS It was hard to follow sometimes, but they did a fantastic job of letting the art tell the story My only complaint about this book is that it isn t thicker.
