In a nutshell: in a dystopian near-future, a fascist regime called Way*Of*Life has seized control. A failed attempt at taking out the resistance group called the Suicide Girls gives the girls important information about the whereabouts of Way*Of*Life’s leader, and so a plan is hatched to take him out for good. The problem with this issue is the same as issue one. As far as dystopian sci-fi goes, it’s all well and good, but there’s not really anything particularly original here. The book is riding on the popularity of the Suicide Girls property rather than breaking any new ground. That said, they know what side their bread is buttered on, and they roll with it. David Hahn and Cameron Stewart do a very nice job of blending the unique style of cheesecake the SGs provide with the visual cues of a sci-fi world where things are falling apart. It’s an unorthodox mix, but it’s not unprecedented, and this particular team is well-suited to it. This book isn’t groundbreaking, and it’s not going to change anyone’s life, but there’s some fun here. And let’s face it, if you’re really just getting it to look at the girls, you’ll be perfectly satisfied.
