Kiss Me, Satan #2 continues where the first issue of this delightful supernatural horror comic left off, with the girls on the run, protected by their mysterious, new guardian.
The writing is snappy, reminscent of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, which isn’t surprising with Gischler in the lead. I also enjoyed a neat little plot twist from a character I’d written off earlier.
The art is still dark and creepy, but instead of that cool, slightly steampunk edge from the first issue, I couldn’t get over the gratuitous panty-shots, French maid outfit, and mysterious towel-slip moments. Did someone tell them they weren’t being sexy enough? Cut it out! I made my male friend try one of the poses, and he almost broke something.
Overall, I’m still enjoying it, and the cliffhanger ending has me eagerly awaiting issue #3!
After an attack from a vampire maid, Barnabus Black and the witches flee their hiding spot in a cheap, Big Easy motel. Barnabus says he knows a safe place, and as they cross the historic Garden District Cemetery, zombies erupt from their graves and attack the group. A new hitman, known as THE BONE WRANGLER, arrives, and his power is control of the undead.
