You can find the full review over at The Founding Fields:thefoundingfields/2012/10/“The end of the world nears and the heroes and villains are going all-out against each other as Ron Marz maintains top form from the first volume.”When I reviewed Artifacts Volume 1 in my last roundup, I was all praise for him. The Top Cow universe has a very different feel and aesthetic than the major universes of DC and Marvel, both of which Ron captured extremely well in his standout Civil War-style series. [...]
Top Cow, to me, has always been a universe divided. On one side there are the more lore-and-legend based titled such as Witchblade, The Darkness and their spin-off characters Magdalena and Angelus. On the other side are the more mecha-oriented titles such as Cyberforce, Aphrodite IX ( or IV, as it is now) and, I am assuming, Hunter-Killer. My reading preference has always leaned towards the former. I’ve been a reader of the Darkness since issue 1 and have followed Witchblade for at least 75% o [...]
This is the second volume of Top Cow's big crossover. This time, they get everyone involved. Like all big cross-over events, they wind up with heros fighting heros for a little bit due to evil trickery. Honestly, the whole thing felt quite cliched. And because they had to squeeze everybody in, it's not like there was any neat use of powers or anything. It was impossible to keep up with what was going on in any fight. And now that there were even more female characters it became even more obvious [...]
I've just about always had a soft spot for company wide crossovers. Wth the second installment of this trilogy writer Ron Marz brings in both the Cyberforce and Hunter-Killer characters. I like Ellis and Samantha from Hunter-Killer, and Marz handles them well enough. The bigger picture is developing, but I'm wondering how they will fir the conclusion into the one remaining volume. An added plus is the inclusion of a guide to all of the characters.
Marz does think big, if this volume is any implication. While not a whole lot necessarily happens, what does is pretty wild. Magic factions vs tech factions and pretty much every Top Cow character comes on stage. Some even get killed!I'd love to read the 3rd volume and the ongoing, but the library hasn't ordered them yet. The Holiday Special at the end was unusually original, in that it shows just how Tilly, the math seer, maneuvers events to work out in a certain way.
The second book in the Artifacts series carried the story along and gave insight into some other plot points, but over all I found the story hard to keep up with. And the art was too dark for my tastes.
Great action scenes, clues and plot elements are revealed in perfect timing. The characters are growing as a team turning this in a very dramatic way.
