The Occultist #2 is wall to wall action. It gets going on the first page and doesn’t stop until the last. Unfortunately, I was left a little confused by the issue.

While I read and enjoyed the first issue, this issue would’ve benefited greatly by some introduction of the characters as you go footnotes or panels. There’s a lot of characters in this book, and it’s very hard to keep track of them at some points in the issue. Yes, there’s recap paragraph inside the front cover, but it just recaps the overall story, it’s not character-specific. Other than that, writer Tim Seeley does a fantastic job with this issue. The pacing is perfect, and the story is well written.

The Occultist is one of those comics that has something for everyone. Horror, magic, mystery, and most importantly, hot girls. Everybody wins! I hadn’t read the previous Occultist one-shot, but I was very impressed with this issue.

What I liked most about this The Occultist #1 is writer Tim Seeley’s ability to catch the audience up on what has happened previously with the character without talking down to them or wasting pages recapping last year’s one-shot. This book is all over the place and it’s a really fun read. We get not only plenty of time with the main character and his story, we also get a good amount of time with the villains and supporting cast and find out their motivations.
