Kaya has formed an uneasy alliance with the Lizard-Riders.
But will a flash flood and a dangerous hunt for food with the treacherous Zothan push Kaya past her breaking point?
Sequential PlanetThe second chapter of Kaya focuses more on building the relationships between characters in a less engaging issue than the first one, but still pretty good.
ComicBook.comCraig's depiction of the wilderness and monstrous creatures within is instantly striking and leaves readers wanting to see what more there is to be discovered behind each tree in the forest. There's an exhilarating sense of exploration that comes with each step forward, even as politics and prophecy are discussed. Kaya remains an engaging and propulsive new series that's bound to excite readers of all ages.
Major SpoilersKaya #2 takes us from a straightforward quest into a situation that examines people's prejudices along with whether their outlook is more toward the future or the past. This gives this fantasy story a timely feel that lends the plot additional richness.
You Don't Read ComicsAs nice as it all is, there isnt a hook to it that goes beyond the interpersonal relationships between the characters. Theres no deeper thematic ground being covered, so it feels like Craigs story almost entirely rests on the surface. This would be much more impressive if there WASNT all of the background and backstory being fed into the story around the edges in the exposition. If Craig would move the struggle for survival a bit more into the center of the frame without getting lost in all the emotions and politics, it might be a more satisfying journey with Kaya.
