matkrenz's Resurrection Man #2 - And Gone review

There are worse places to wake up at.

Review for Resurrection Man #2.

The Story: Mitch gets to Portland and is informed that his father is dead. Also the Body Doubles find him and Mitch dies again but something different happens when he wakes up.

The Good: It's an interesting idea to set the majority of the issue in a retirement. It's a place where people go to stay until they die but Mitch can't die and he seems out of place there. Darryl seems like a very fun character and I do want to see if he's a former supervillain or not. I have a problem with the sudden memory loss subplot but I think it's handled well and it does indirectly explain Mitch origin. I am continuing to like Dagnino's art, it fits the mood well and I haven't reread Generation Lost but I think his art seems to work very well with Santiago Arcas as colorist.

The Bad: Mitch's memory loss subplot seems to come out of nowhere but I am interested to see where it goes. The Body Doubles seem to be fine villains but I need information about them because they just seem annoying.

The Verdict: Another solid issue for Resurrection Man that continues the story very well and ends on a great cliffhanger. This is a buy.

I'm especially intrigued by his father's friend Darryl, he seems like he'll be ...

    With the possibility of this series going either up or down after the last issue, it seems to be heading down with this issue.  The series seems to be taking a more serious and spiritual look at death and life through the eyes of the main character and that works for a lot of this story, even the parts where he is talking with the old man with Alzheimers.  Casting the Body Doubles as the villains here though certainly detracts away from the tone of the book.  In the previous issue I was a little...
