Captain America: Living Legend #2


As the Russian army mobilizes to lock down a crash site in the remote Siberian wastes, Captain America's mission is to find the survivors and bring them back alive - or silence them forever.

Impossible odds in hostile territory are all in a day's work for a super-soldier like Steve Rogers, but even he is unprepared for the horror that awaits them all in the icy wilderness.

Because something has survived. Something alien. And it is awake...

Preview



Investigating the Crash


The opening issue of this series was rather poor, which was a shame considering I was hoping for this to be an amazing series. I do however hope that it turns round, and fast as with it only being a four issue mini-series there isn't a lot of time to waste.

Plot

Following the crash of the D.E.U.S. space station Captain America goes to investigate.

Review

This was another good issue, though not a lot better than the disappointing opening issue. Andy Diggle does a fantastic job of continuing from where the first issue left off, as although the issue was still rather slow, it would still have some interesting aspects. I also enjoyed how Diggle would continue to make this story very mysterious, adding a lot of drama and suspense to the issue, as well as more excitement than the last issue had (even though it was near the end of the issue). I did however expect a bit more progression by now, given the fact that this is only a four issue mini-series, though it looks as though the series will be getting more exciting and entertaining from now.

The artwork on this issue would however once again be phenomenal and it's really the artwork that has made this series as good as it's been. This issue would see Agustin Alessio take over from Adi Granov, though due to Alessio having a similar style, as well as adding his own painted colors, it keeps the tone of the series the same. The detail of Alessio's artwork would also be to a very high standard, as although the facial expressions were a bit stiff throughout, the line detail would be near enough perfect for the entire issue. On top of that Alessio would also produce some amazing layouts that were very dynamic as well as make the extravagant sequences looked awesome.
