“WE ALL FALL DOWN,” Part Two Assault on the King’s Bluff Police Station as the Latimer children fight their way out against the onslaught of horrors that stalk them.
If you thought Goners #1 was a rush Goners #2 is a fighter jet pulling 9 g's of horror. Issue two opens with a fantastic scene and we're right where we left off at the end of the great first issue. Knee deep in monsters, Zoe and Josiah along with Kyle and Francis have to fight there way out of the police station. It's a non-stop sprint to safety that will leave you gasping for air.
Jacob Semahn has created a fun frenzied tale that hasn't let up in two issues. He throws in a flashback to allow the audience to catch their breath. It's a charming vignette of the past when things were better and safer for the Latimer clan. Back to the action at the station, it's full of blood and fright but tempered with subversive humor.
Jorge Corona and Gariel Cassata establish these tight quarters that are almost claustrophobic as our heroes fight in offices and hallways. The threat of death is inches away and all around them and they illustrate that beautifully from varying angles and perspectives. The colors are mostly dark because of the lack of lighting in the building except for the lush splashes of blood.
Goners #2 turns the thrills and horror into overdrive for a fantastic read you'll want to revisit and reread again and again to appreciate it fully.
