The Crow: Pestilence Issue 2 & 3 (2014) Comic Review


*** ½ Out of 5

Release Date- April 16th, 2014

Pages- 22

Despite some not overly glowing reviews I actually quite enjoyed the first issue of the new Crow series and while it may not have been great I thought it was a strong enough read. Here is issue 2 Salvador continues the hunt for the people who killed his family and this issue was a bit of a step back and while like issue 1, the review for this were mostly subpar, but I thought it was a good, but not great read. However there’s just something lacking here and even issue 1 had some problems. The problems I have with issue 2 is the writing was weak and at times it felt like the same dialogue over and over again. I gave it the passing grade, but I can see my score going lower on another reading.

Oh boy this time I fully agree with the poor reviews as issue 3 was quite weak. The main focus in this issue are the bad guys and I found them boring. The writing again here was quite subpar and I’m not sure if I like where all this is heading and at 3.99 a comic I’m not sure I really care to find out if its worth it. Odds are I’ll give the series another chance, but I see this being quite subpar, but than again I enjoyed issue 1 despite the flaws and even enjoyed issue 2 for the most part, but the decline started in issue 2 and continues here and something tells me it won’t get much better.
