Iron Infiniti Series
I was going through my emails when I realized I bought this sometime last year. I didn’t talk about it? Wow! What was I thinking? I really missed out on something. Or did I???
Iron Infiniti Vol 2
Here's a series I wasn't sure would get a sequel. I felt the art was a little too pedestrian to warrent a sequel. The storyline was a little cliched as you can tell in my review of vol. 1 but I felt there was enough to maintain reader interest. Apparently there was enough, since Mindless Designs made this sequel as well as a few others.
In this volume, the alien-human suit team of CJ and Elz spent time training under Scavenger the eye-patched mentor (not a stereotype, trust me) but isn't at his full potential. Renisha returns as Ms. Makeshift, having gone through training herself in the time-skip. Together they learn about the threat posed by the King of Aces, the gang leader using alien tech to dominate the streets. But another threat appears- literally, she's on the cover. What does she have to do with the King of Aces, or does she portend another alien threat coming for the Earth? Tune in and find out!
Improvements in the art and paneling were obvious. More manga-styled work appeared in this issue (like running with arms out for balance) which I considered appropriate and helpful. But some of the art seemed unpolished.
Overall, a good sequel with a decent storyline and lead-up to an intense finale. Or so it seems? I hope they stick with the series. It's a bit YA in some ways but hey it's comics not Shakespeare. I give Iron Infiniti 2 a 4.0 out of 5 stars. You can pick it up here.
