    Excellent second chapter where Geralt finds himself in a war between clans where rage and dementia seems to be the common point.

    Rerekina achieves very dynamic sequences using textures, achieving a gloomy tone perfect for this story. Body language and facial expressions elevate dialogues.

    The Story: Sztybor delivers a layered and engaging story in this issue. I love the fact that there are no clear good guys and bad guys in the story leaving Geralt to find the truth through his own moral compass. The story leaves the reader to wonder who the true threat is and I love how that mystery makes me excited to see where the story goes next.

    The Art: Rerekina delivers some stunning art in the issue. The art is lively, beautifully detailed and captures the character’s emotions perfectly.

    Witcher tales possess a familiar pattern and it won’t surprise any readers to learn that Wild Animals #2 complicates Geralt’s current circumstances by introducing multiple factions and perspectives with no clear heroes. Both groups of humans occupying this mysterious new island present a clear angle on the events of the first issue; one is interested in preserving all sentient life, human, animal, or monster, whereas the other represents a much more familiar approach in which only human life matters. The conflicts available between the two perspectives are self-evident and both groups are provided just enough sympathy to keep readers hooked. Yet the underlying rationales are quickly dismissed, especially when the “vegan” group readily prepares to make multiple sacrifices to achieve its own ends. It provides a familiar refrain in which “both sides” of a conflict are similarly bad and suggests that Wild Animals may be more familiar than challenging within the canon of Witcher scenarios. The island and its inhabitants are all well depicted and the potential action ahead makes even a rote rendition of Geralt’s typical narrative will offer plenty of rewards for fans.
