JAE LEE returns to creator-owned comics with his first new title since 1994, a seven-issue LIMITED SERIES. In issue 2, Ep introduces his sheltered brother Delph to the pleasures of the outside world while questioning their existence and the nature of the Church of the Seven.
Comic WatchOverall Issue #2 is a slower affair as it takes the time to flesh out the history of the Jesi and the Church of The Seven Sons in a installment where the art and script cleverly trade places in driving the story forward before coming together for a strong and violent ending to the issue.
COMICONThe mystery and intrigue around the public naming of the second coming of Christ continues to build in Seven Sons #2. So too does the tension among the candidates, some of whom just want to live a normal life. Some questions are answered while new ones emerge.
ComicBook.comThe work of artist Jae Lee remains the most interesting aspect of Seven Sons, with his moody artwork and colors by June Chung, making this alternate version of Earth always unique to look at. Series writers Robert Windom and Kelvin Mao continue to trickle out the details of the larger world here, giving you just enough details of what's happening and where the mystery is headed to keep your interest. Seven Sons' larger satirical bent doesn't feel quite as biting in issue #2 but as the full picture continues to become clear it always remains amusing.
