Comic Book: The October Girl 2 Review
October Girl 2 Review Short Version: The October Girl 2 continues the slow burn for the young series from Monkey Brain Comics. We start Matthew Dow Smith’s The October Girl 2 knowing Autumn’s imaginary friend is real and this issue is most just her trying to deal with it and then – blam – there’s another huge reveal right at the end of the issue that was just as good as the reveal at the end of issue one. I can’t wait to see where this is going, but it’s killing me to get it in such small doses.
October Girl 2 Writer and Artist: Matthew Dow Smith
The October Girl 2 picks up where we left off: Our protagonist Autumn has found out that her childhood imaginary friend Barnaby is real and that she is, apparently, in some sort of danger. Autumn immediately asks the question that seems like the most natural, given the circumstances: if he is real, why is he just showing back up now. I can let you know that The October Girl 2 doesn’t answer that question. In fact, it’s a slow issue, mostly Autumn trying to gather her thoughts. I love how Dow Smith is writing this series, there’s just something about it that flows for me. In any case, it’s a clam and peaceful issue, all internal conflict and deep thought and then Dow Smith drops another big reveal. All I wanted to do at the end of The October Girl 2 was to turn the page and see what happens next. Sadly, I have to wait until the next issue is released, but I’m pretty desperate to see where all of this is going. My only complaint (such as it is) about The October Girl is that I can’t keep reading it and see what is in store next.
October Girl 2 costs $.99 and is availalbe exclusively through ComiXology.
