Cowboy Ninja Viking #2

Written by AJ Lieberman
Art by Riley Rossmo

This is a fun title, but it's hard to follow. I'm not sure if that's the fault of the script or Rossmo's art. The concept is a difficult one to portray - the protagonist and antagonist both house three separate personalities in their heads, but it's actually the other scenes that become confusing.

There's a strange quality to the plotting. Devices seem to come along to fit the convenience of the plot. CNV has to fly coach to Japan because he can't take Ghislain's jet, but then he shows up almost as soon as they get there. I think an editor might have come in handy....

I saw this week that this title has switched from being a mini-series to an on-going book. I'm not sure that there is enough within this concept for that to work....
