    Layman and Jok are working with a very large and diverse ensemble of characters who seem to be well-articulated and equally well-rendered on the page. The challenge moving forward is going to lie in maintaining the right balance of weird comic energy and deeper emotional drama while still keeping a firm grasp on each of the characters and everyone involved in the action. Judging from the first couple of issues, the overall integrity of the series is in good hands with Layman and Jok.

    The charming diablerie of the plot coupled with the bright and colorful art makes We Fight In Hell feel like someone using a box of crayons to journal their existential crisis of faith across the pages of an ancient skin-bound grimoire used for communing with the lords of hell.

    The lack of definition for Hell persists in In Hell We Fight #2, and it makes it difficult to invest in the series’ action or humor in a setting that resists any sense of stakes or suspense. Individual sequences may be singled out, like a heart-to-heart between Midori and Xander, but appear entirely disconnected from the rest of the issue. Relationships and attitudes are determined by the needs of the moment resulting in each of the adolescents being either a one-note gag or undefinable cliche. This applies to every element introduced in issue #2 as well, including a house and its various pests that defy any explanation—they simply move the plot along towards an uncertain (and, seemingly, uninteresting) destination. The series has produced a take on the afterlife that suggests mild tedium interrupted by shenanigans is the worst children can expect in Hell, and it doesn’t provide many reasons to continue reading. Combine that with a decline in artwork with figures typically portrayed in a flat fashion with barely discernible features or responses, and it’s hard to find any hook in this series after only two issues.
