I totally know I’m playing catch up with Demi-God #2 here. I just wanna put this review out there. I found the second issue of Demi-God something people can relate. Aside from the whole violence and beating up a giant three headed dog thing. When you happen to be a regular guy working a simple job that doesn’t pay tons, becoming a demi-god sounds incredible. The book evokes all these things but also has the makings of a decent superhero story. Our Hercules character goes from one issue to another, while almost kissing the girl. It’s all very sexist in the way but also accepts itself that way. The book then adds two extra subplots which is necessary to up the demands on the “hero’s” purpose. Ron Marz and Andy Smith have put together an entertaining book. Smith’s art is clean and sharp. His work on the main character makes him stand out like a superhero should. Marz adds the opening and closing comments for the character to get his jabs and input in on his ongoing quest. Here’s to hoping I catch up with the next couple issues.
