'Copperhead, Vol. 2' by Jay Faerber continues the adventures of Sheriff Clara Bronson on the remote space outpost town of Copperhead. I liked it just as much as the first volume.
The story seems like it's going to start slow with a drama to get to know the characters better, but that's just to lull you into a false sense of security. Clara and Boo attempt a little downtime since things are slow. Clara goes on a date that goes completely wrong. Boo has it worse, as his night ends up in a situation involving snipers and a posse. Perhaps the lesson here is not to take a night off.
Along the way, we do get to know the characters better. From Clara's past to a bit more about Boo and also the mysterious stranger who lives out in the desert away from everyone else. It's such a good book, and I love the space western combination. It works well here. The aliens are interesting and alien. The bad guys are driven by greed or revenge. There are unexpected motivations and heroes.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, Image Comics, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
