Here’s the Synopsis for the Series:
Snow White awakens to True Love’s Kiss… twenty-eight days after the zombie apocalypse! With the Seven Dwarves dead, the quintessential fairy tale princess must join forces with her polyamorous Prince Charming and his tough-as-nails paramour, Rapunzel, to wage a losing battle against death itself. Bound by love and driven apart by jealousy, can this unlikely trio find a way to put aside their differences, or will they be devoured by the reanimated denizens of their once enchanted kingdom? Based on the hit play by the same name, Snow White Zombie Apocalypse is a story of deep woods and old magic mixed with a healthy dollop of blood, sex, kung-fu and gender politics. Y’know, fairy tales as usual.
For those of you who haven’t read the first issue of Snow White Zombie Apocalypse By Brenton Lengel, I encourage you to do so the Story makes more sense before reading issue two. Which if you haven’t feel free to check out my Review of Issue #1 Here.
In issue two our Polyamorous Trio ( Rapunzel, Snow White and Prince Charming) return to continue on with their story battling against the forces of the undead along with The Woodsman. We see appearences from some other iconic characters in this gruesome twisted series that is anything but a “Fairytale.”
Issue #2 bascially starts off where issue #1 ended. I really enjoyed the detail in this issue as far as artwork goes especially the gore aspect. Some of the thorned bramble edges on certain pages of the flashbacks to the past made it almost seem like they would come off the page. Beautifully Done. I like how The Woodsman was introduced into this issue, his entrance. I also liked how certain elements from other fairytales were used to lure other characters almost like a trail of “breadcrumbs.”
Our Trio finally meets the Woodsman after Rapunzel and the Woodsman bascially have a stand off because our Prince Charming is a little too fragile to withstand his brute force. So here we go a woman to the rescue leaving our prince as the ” Damsel in Distress”, which isn’t a bad thing I think it’s kind of empowering to see a woman kicking ass in a comic not needing a man to save her. Showing that women can hold their own, rather than being seen as weaker in comparison to men.
We get more of a backstory in this issue, glimpsing into the past seeing the world through some of our heros and heroines eyes. Before the apocalypse and the events that lead up to it. The use of color coding on the narration so you could tell who’s narrating the scene was interesting as it shows the back and forth flow between both characters.
In conclusion I enjoyed this issue though it was shorter in length than the first issue it was still well done, The continuation of the story seeing new characters introduced into the story and to the trio seeing more of a dynamic. New monsterous creatures introduced, right down to the artwork. I’m enjoying the direction of the series, look forward to read more once it’s released. I give it a thumbs up, recomending you to check it out for yourselves. If you want more information or to learn more about the series click on link posted below.
