This issue is a solid continuation of the first issue. The inter-dimensional travelers find themselves caught in the middle of a war between a European army that possesses WWI weaponry and an army of futuristic Native Americans. It is quite a surreal situation.
I find the writing and storyline to be the strong points. I like how flashbacks are incorporated to strengthen the background story. It works well with as part of the whole alternate-reality premise. The artwork is also good, but my one critique is that the faces could use more work. It seems like there are two expressions which every character shares, and the facial structure is so similar between characters that I had to rely on the text to identify who was who. But as someone who cannot draw a decent stickman, I can’t judge too harshly.
The issue ends with the sense that the Techno-Native American tribe will send a shaman to assist the travelers. That has my interest piqued for the next installment. Native American mysticism has always fascinated me, so I am curious to see how it will be addressed. Until then…
