The Biggest Bang #2
The Biggest Bang #2
Writer: DJ Kirkbride
Art: Vassilis Gotgtzilas
The cosmos is in danger and so is its protector. The destruction of the universe is close, but can Cosmos and Wyan stop it before it’s too late? The Cosmic Church of the Half-God has come to Cosmos to persuade him to help destroy the universe. Of course, our brave hero stands defiant against their wishes, but what can he accomplish when his powers are fading? What could this mean for all those he means to protect? Lets just hope Wyan can reach Cosmos in time to help. The fate of the universe may depend on it.
I’m hoping that the spotlight Wyan is getting becomes something greater. I can feel her character developing and starting to live up to Cosmos’s standards in this issue. Its time for her to be strong for him, and I can see her stepping up to the plate. Is it possible that she might take his place as the defender and protector of the cosmos?
As scratchy and gritty as this comic may be, Vassilis Gotgzilas once again completes this book. All of his monster and alien designs are kinda cool. That said, there are a few hiccups shown. Mostly proportions. Usually, I hate that, but I can tell Gotgzilas just goes with the flow. With the overall look of the book, its something I can kinda get over.I am starting to love the scratchy pen marks and slanted panels. Reading issue #2 has shown me all the inking styles that Gotgzilas uses. I didn’t notice it in issue #1, but I’m trying to get better at looking at the art for what it is.
I may have ragged on this comic in the past, but it’s getting hard not to like it. It has everything you want in a sci-fi comic book, Cosmic protectors, aliens, advanced technology, and now the destruction of all life and the universe. Fun times. DJ Kirkbride writes some incredible sci-fi adventures while filling in the genre gaps to make a well-rounded story. Between you and me, the romantic tension between Wyan and Cosmos is too good to throw away. I can’t help but get the feeling that this writing s somewhat similar to older comics that were written to get shock value out of young readers. Nothing wrong with that because Kirkbride, along with Gotgzilas, is definitely winning.
