    If you’re a big Nemesis fan, you’re going to love ‘Big Game’ #2. If you’re rooting for the good guys… you’re outta luck. Just like them.

    Un Cómic Más

    Millar continues to amaze with this fresh story, where not even the NFTs scam are saved.

    Pepe Larraz continues to capture the essence of all these Millarworld characters with his unique imprint, with detailed art with many textures, where Niro’s colors offer a nostalgic touch but at the same time define each of these characters. The sequences of violence are very dynamic.

    Lyles Movie Files

    Writer Mark Millar has steadily built up an impressive roster of heroes only to take out a staggering amount of them this issue. That would be an event destroyer for some creators, but Millar makes shocking moments like this work because it’s so unexpected. And he doesn’t lean on the shocks to make the story. It’s part of it regardless if there’s some equally surprising twist that makes these deaths get reversed by the end of the event.

    Comical Opinions

    BIG GAME #2 puts the BIG in BIG GAME when Dr. Crane and the Chrononauts visit 1986 to confirm superheroes existed, suffering massive consequences for their curiosity. Pepe Larraz’s art is spectacular, and Millar’s script is as BIG as it gets.

    This issue does a great job of continuing the story. But we are yet to find out the full of scope of Wesley Gibson’s plan other than wiping out any and all heroes with superpowers. I enjoyed the inclusion of Hit-Girl and the fact that it is Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin who is used to save Hit-Girl from being murdered. This makes sense given that he started out as somewhat of a misfit much like Mindy aka Hit-Girl did.

    Overall. I’m really looking forward to seeing where this goes in the next issue.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: I must admit I was blown away by this issue. Not only was I not expecting the heightened levels of violence within the story, but I did not expect how emotional I would get over those moments. Millar continues to craft a story filled with surprises, shocks and fantastic reveals that pull me in as a reader. I love the contrast of pitting characters you love against characters you love to hate. Millar is a singularly gifted storyteller and this series is quickly becoming one of my favorites of the year.

    The Art: Larraz delivers some fantastic art throughout the issue. The visuals perfectly capture the tone, action and violence of the story.

    Wakizashi's Reviews

    Big Game #2 is a cracking comic book and I highly recommend it. There’s so much story in this single issue that it puts current DC and Marvel comics to shame. They’ve been criticized recently for stretching stories out and “writing for the trades.” If I have one minor nitpick with this issue, it’s that there’s almost too much going on. I finished my initial read of this comic, took a deep breath and immediately re-read it. And I must also shout out Pepe Larraz’s sumptuous art throughout this comic. He draws all of Millar’s characters beautifully and the detail in his backgrounds is refreshing.

    Major Spoilers

    Long story short, Big Game #2 continues to exemplify all the problems with multiversal crossover stories, and while the visuals are really impressive, the story is just blood and chaos with no point other than “Bloodbath”. I enjoyed Wanted when it came out, but taking that book’s premise and overwriting it on Bite Club, Kick-Ass, and the rest undermines the reality of all the titles. Even if you love Nemesis and The Killer, where’s the fun in watching them kill all the other Millarworld protagonists with no resistance?
