Review: Swords of Sorrow #2

Swords of Sorrow issue two picks up where issue one left off.  When we left issue one, chaos was ensuing in all realms and our heroines were trusted to different realms. The courier tells the mistress of the blades that he is not very confident with the heroines and he feels that their objective will fail due to all the heroes fighting each other. The mistress believes that heroines will find their way and work together. Swords of Sorrow #2The story then takes us to Sonja fighting Tars Tarkas. Sonja beats Tars, and is met by the princess Dejah Thoris meanwhile Vampirella is still trying to make sense of what is going on while fighting a T-Rex.  While the ladies are all distracted the evil Prince releases his horde of demons to get rid of the warriors.

Swords of Sorrow #2 felt like a different comic from issue one. I was surprised how everything picked up quickly.  The dialogue was sharp, and the action was fast and the explanation to the main story was on point.  One thing that I enjoyed in this issue was the way Simone gives you the story through the action panels, it made for a better issue and it made the pace of the issue feel quick compared to issue one

The art in the book was solid . The details to the heroes looked great, and the colors didn’t feel muddy.  Davila does a great job of making each heroine look great.   Overall, Sword of Sorrows 2 was a much better and fun read.

Score: 3/5
