REVIEW: 'Home Sick Pilots' #2 by Dan Watters, Caspar Wijngaard, and Aditya Bidikar

The Old James House has lost its ghosts. With her new powers, it's up to Ami to bring them back...whether they want to come home or not. Even when they're really big ghosts wrapped in metal, with lots of sharp edges and things. HOME SICK PILOTS #2 Writer: Dan Watters Artist: Caspar Wijngaard Letterer: Aditya Bidikar  Designer: Tom Muller Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: January 13, 2021 Cover Price: $3.99 Score:  ★★★☆☆ (3/5) A powered-up ghostified Ami has been compelled to find the ghosts of The Old James House in the form of an enchanted horseshoe. Its current bearer isn't going to give it up so easily. Meanwhile, Ami's friends Buzz and Rip are left looking for answers about her whereabouts back at the house.

In a world of frequent events and constant reboots, VILLAINS SEEKING HERO is a back-to-basics comic book with a not so basic premise that anyone and everyone can hop into. It's something familiar, but entirely new! Creator/writer Louis Southard adds: "I hope the reader can have a laugh and enjoy themselves while reading it, but also notice that there's a larger, more complicated story at play in the background with the possibility of twists/reveals dropping at any moment."

Southard goes on to say: "I started messing around with the idea for this book when I was 16. Just watching it grow and develop over the years into something real is a very surreal experience. I never thought that something like this could happen to someone like me. There's a lot of love in this book and I hope people can notice it."

The first 5 issues of VILLAIN SEEKING HERO will be available on April 8, 2020. The first volume, which collects the first 5 issues, along with issues #6-8, will be up on comiXology on April 15, 2020. And there will be even more supervillain hijinks to come!
