Mighty Samson #2
The adventures of the Might Samson continues. Today I will be reviewing Mighty Samson #2. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
So let’s talk about the book. Samson fights off a pack of devil-brutes as they attack the tribe of N’Yark in the middle of the night. Zarsk, the tribe’s cowardly, scheming leader only shows up when everything is safe. Samson goes on a quest into Jerz territory to return the children of an old woman. He battles sea monsters and the men of Jerz but manages, through his amazing strength, to defeat them all. The queen of Jerz, Terra, is so impressed by him that she asks him to be her warlord. She feels that the world will fall at her feet with Samson by her side. When Samson refuses, she releases the girls to him and gives him a token. Samson returns to N’Yark where he is praised and he finally earns a little respect from his slave Sharmaine. Meanwhile, Sunder, the Jerz warlord, now banished by the queen treks through the forest until he comes upon a compound that seems abandoned. And that’s the book.
So let’s talk opinions. Another incredible issue of action and adventure. What an amazing book. Jim Shooter is doing a phenomenal job with this character. The action never lets up. There is plenty of personality in each individual character and Shooter is developing each of them nicely. The Queen is especially ballsy. I like how she doesn’t back down from Samson for a second and always seems like the one with all of the power. Samson is going to have to wisen up fast or she will eat him alive. The art is also pretty good. It’s not large, in your face stuff, but it gets the point across. There is nice shading and gorgeous backgrounds. Not to mention that amazing cover. My one issue with this book is that it takes so darn long for it to come out. I know it’s bi-monthly but I really want it to come out quicker. If the book was bad, I wouldn’t mind as much. I’ve already given up on Magnus because even though it was a good book, I have no desire to read it after it’s been out of my thoughts for so long. Please don’t let that happen to Samson. Dark Horse has a winner here and they can’t drop the ball. That’s my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.
