Over the Ropes Issue 2 Review
This is a spoiler-free review of Over the Ropes #2.
The second issue of Over the Ropes really ups the ante. I love the new character of Jessie Presley. This series is awesome when it comes to balancing drama, humor, and action. This new antagonist is a perfect combination of these tones. He also brings me back to my childhood with the vibes of The Honky Tonk Man.
The artwork in Over the Ropes #2 is fantastic as always. What really caught my eye this time around were the backgrounds of the panels. Many of them have an interesting texture.
As with issue 1, I am impressed by the very effective use of coloring. Each section of the panels has its own tone. The comic almost feels like a mood ring that changes with the story progression.
There is nothing dull about this issue. The story is all action and twists from beginning to end. Just when you think the plot has a nice trajectory, something new is thrown into the mix. There is nothing more exciting than a comic book that keeps you guessing.
The ending of this issue was nothing short of crazy. I cannot wait to see what happens next. Over the Ropes #2 is an excellent issue that continues to strengthen the series.
