Wowza! I thought BRZRKR Issue #1 was average but BRZRKR Issue #2 is like that superior sequel to a meh movie. It contains as much gore as the previous chapter but this time the carnage is thoroughly justified.
We find out that there is a mystical reason behind Berserker’s birth. I really liked the flashbacks to the cavemen era, and that there was not a random reason behind our hero gaining powers.
I am also appreciating Ron Garney’s art style more even though I have read better. The action is top notch and I really appreciated the designs of the prehistoric-period characters, especially the young version of Berserker and his flashy blue eyes, along with the illustrations of the wild animals.
If you are faint of heart then BRZKR Issue #2 might not be for you as it shows violence against children as well. This ain’t no PG-13 comic. It goes all out. And I would have given it a full 5 stars but a 4/5 rating is more suitable given that it’s simply a better continuation of a lackluster first instalment.
