    But Why Tho?

    With so many hints, clues, and teases littered throughout this story, Almighty #2 feels like it is setting up narrative beats to last for a while. With how engaging this story has been so far, I sincerely hope Laroche and his team can have the time with this series to explore them all.

    This series has been an interesting dive into faith and belief, exploring these themes with an apocalyptic setting. After the first issue, I got the impression that the writer and artist, Edward Laroche, was trying to say that this world is headed towards apocalypse since many people stopped believing in some form of higher power. This is an idea that left a very sour taste in my mouth, but considering that Laroche had written and drawn an incredibly layered, nuanced story, The Warning, only a few years ago, I decided to pick up issue #2 to see if there was anything buried within here to keep me aboard. I am glad I did.

    Almighty #2 takes a deep dive into the nuance and subtext behind its themes. Edward Laroche is crafting a tale about human nature that’s expertly disguised behind a bad-ass apocalypse story.

    Almighty #2 fails to build upon the already threadbare setting, structure, and characters presented in its debut. Fale and Del continue to move down the road with a mysterious gang in pursuit, and that’s essentially the entire issue. The post-apocalyptic landscape is unmemorable, when it’s even present, considering many backgrounds are non-existent or only provide a few additional lines of aging to generic places. Beyond vague mentions of “Zone One,” there’s no illumination to the state of the world or how it got to this point. There’s a similar lack of characterization surrounding the series’ heroines with Fale left only to present scars and a single mid-tier one-liner. The action is poorly paced across pages with booby traps and gunfights unfolding with minimal impact. After two complete issues it’s difficult to answer what Almighty is about, much less where it might be going or if it’s worth following that journey; probably best to just leave it.
