Grit city issue two by Ron Gavalik
What's it about?
Grit City, Issue #2 is the second installment of a monthly series about a dark and calamitous world, where the nefarious rule. Dillon Galway is an idealistic freelance journalist in his mid-twenties, who barely scrapes out a living reporting on corruption for the Grit City Times and his own blog.
Dillon remembers the city as an ideal place to live, before the murder of his Father and the rise of the Lebedev Syndicate. All meaningful power in business, politics and law enforcement are now funneled into the hands of this wealthy organization.
He works tirelessly to reestablish opportunity and peace, and relies on the sexy and sultry Alyssa Stephano (gun for hire) to help when situations require her nickel plated Colt .45 revolvers.
But in the shadows of the back alleys, whispers stir in the underground of an unnamed force. Something or someone that's determined to upset the status quo. When Dillon is tipped about horrifying activities he's propelled into a perilous investigation that may lead to dire consequences.
As the series progresses Dillon will face unfathomed challenges, but also gain abilities most consider impossible.
This is just a quickie review because I already reviewed issue one (here) and each issue is short.
Anyway I enjoyed this latest installment as much as the first, the story is getting heated and we're starting to get a hint of the fantastical element of serial.
We're starting to get to know Dillon and Alyssa a bit more and I really like them, I certainly wouldn't want to make an enemy of Alyssa!
And of course not forgetting the pictures that make this an emotobook, I really like the abstract pictures, they're very interesting and express well our characters feelings. They're a great little extra to an exciting story, I'm looking forward to getting my hands on issue three next month.
