Captain Action Cat #2 picks up immediately after the whirlwind events of the first issue. Can Action Cat save the day? Can Captain Action Cat make it back home? BOTH of them?
The writing team of Art Baltazar and Franco have been around for a while always turn out some great stuff. But, when you throw newcomer Chris “Zod” Smits into the mix, the fun really heats up!! They have more going on in one single issue of a comic than some titles have in their entire run. This issue is PACKED with fun and adventuresome characters that are true to both the spirit of the book and who they “really” are. They’ve managed to find a logical way to combine THREE companies’ characters into one series. You’ve got everybody from Action Cat to Captain Action to Ghost to X, and they’ve ALL got something to do and a reason for being there. Besides being really entertaining, this comic is an honest to God page turner!! Fun Fact: Chris “Zod” Smits is the world’s WORST player of Scramble with Friends.
This issue is 110% pure Art Baltazar fun, art-wise. This book was created FOR Baltazar, and nobody else could pull this off. Each page is true to his style, and looks fantastic. Baltazar always throws in some great physical “acting” from his characters, and here is no different. The really fun part about this issue is getting to see Baltazar draw GROWN adults doing super hero things. You don’t get to see that very often, but when you do, it’s a real treat.
To say that I give this book my highest recommendation possible would be an understatement. I haven’t read a book that was this much fun since…well, since I read issue #1 of this series. Do yourself a paper and pick up this book. You KNOW you’re going to love it!!!
