So, Lo Pan is back as a ghost and he is summoning Snakes from all the different universes to get back at Jack Burton. You get that all? The cheese factor has gone through the roof! Yea, it's that cheesey but you laugh as there are plenty of them to have in this issue. Yea, like the previous issue, it is entertaining and funny as this is not something that you can take seriously. Not for everyone but for people who like cheese and plenty of it. I feel like I am going to get cholesterol from reading the series but it is enjoyable nonetheless.

Big Trouble in Little China/Escape from New York (#2)
So, the real reason list discovered as to why they must save the singer. Guns firing, something gets left behind and Lo Pan finds it... And he is still unhappy with Jack Burton. This issue has many more laughs as it plays on the cheesiness of the situation and pokes fun at it! Major improvement over the first issue that Boom! brought out. So, if the studio keeps on this path, I will keep on reading as yes, it may not be great but, it's entertaining nonetheless as we escape the mundane and have a laugh or few.

Monsters Unleashed (#1)
Well, there was a lot of hype for this new series as the heroes all join together to battle a monster invasion happening ALL OVER THE WORLD. There are more questions than answers as to what is happening as this story seems to be all encompassing of the Marvel universe. This could be really good or really bad. I can't decide as the first issue wasn't bad but wasn't great. There is enough for me to want to read on and see what happens in the next issue. Guess I will decide then if it is something I want to stick with or not then.
Lock and Key: Small World (#1)
So, as the kids learn the secrets of the keys that they hold, one finds out it is not a toy. Bring in the mayhem as a giant spider brings webs and a hunger. There is laughs to be had as Joe Hill and company do a fantastic job with the book again. It is a book I slip in and out of at times but, I am starting to think, I should be a more regular reader of the series. Thank God for trades if I want to get the complete story so far. Grab this as it is entertaining as hell as we unlock the funs hiding in this world.
So, the story continues as what lays in the dark wants to come to the light, a part of John's past comes back and the trees are pretty sure that Swamp Thing is just getting under their bark! There is a good amount of laughs to be had as we build up some more to when this all comes to ahead. Which, if you ask me, should be in an issue or 2. Great artwork as the story is an in-between sort of story that may or may not be used in the future but, it is entertaining nonetheless.
Squarriors: Summer (#2)
So, the story continues with a little more back story as to what happened and the war at hand now. There is a lot happening as war is among the Tin Kin but is help near by? The story and art are great as it grows organically. It is interesting and really grabs your attention from the first storyline to this current one. Get on this and the trade paperback of the original storyline to see what I am talking about. It will be a cult classic.

So the battle rages on as Lucifer confronts his father with all life on Earth hanging in the balance. There is a lot happening in this book but the battle is far from done as Maze and Lucifer have some unfinished business to take care of if they wish to save all of humanity while extracting a little revenge at the same time. The art and story are great as the team at Vertigo present this classic character. If you haven't gotten into this book yet I suggest that you get the trades and just start catching up. Great great read!
