Reviewer’s Notes:

“Unnatural” went at a pace that was breakneck speed for much of the series. The sequel started out that way as well. It was a nice change of pace to pump the brakes a little bit and get to know more about some of the new characters. 

I liked that “the slaughterhouse” is still relevant. It’s a great metaphor for what we see happening in the world today. Slapping on a new coat of paint or remodeling a facility doesn’t eliminate the horrors that took place inside those walls. Not talking about history is how it repeats itself.

I like how this cover hints at the possibility of a major discovery. Moreover I like how we get hints that the discovery will carry undertones with it. It won’t be long until we start to wonder who can be trusted.

I’m very fond of Andolfo and Bigarella’s work on the interior pages. We get great lines and outstanding facial expressions. Carotenuto’s coloring brings it all together and enhances the characters’ personalities. This is especially noticeable when Leslie is talking to ashes at the hospital.

As a geek on a budget I believe that “Unnatural: Blue Blood” is well worth the price of admission. There is a caveat. Read the original series, “Unnatural”, prior to this one. Otherwise some references that a critical to the plot will be missed.

I grew up loving all things geek. I started reading and collecting comics when I was 8. My personal collection has roughly 8,000 books in it. When I’m not doing something geek-related I love spending time with my amazing wife and kids, gaming, and working on cross stitch projects.
