The Adventures of Augusta Wind #2 Review – J.M. DeMatteis and Vassilis Gogtzilas
The Adventures of Augusta Wind #2 Review Short Version: The Adventures of Augusta Wind #2 came out just a couple of weeks after the first issue and – while I enjoyed the first issue – it feels like the series is starting to find its stride with this issue. Still heavy on exposition, it’s got an interesting world that I am enjoying learning about filled with imaginative creatures. Still no clue what’s going on, but I’m enjoying it.

The Adventures of Augusta Wind #2 Review
The Adventures of Augusta Wind #2 picks up with Augusta Wind, having recently learned that she is not truly a regular girl named Augusta Webster (except, as we learn, she is) has set off to deal with the trouble facing her (true) home. However, she has been captured by Baloonies who do not seem to be taking her any where pleasant. The first part of the issue moves briskly enough, with the back nine changing over to full-on exposition mode. I don’t mind it because the world created by DeMatteis and Gogtzilas is both beautiful and fascinating. It’s always neat to learn some new bit about Augusta’s world or – especially – see a new creature from it. Augusta, for her part, has a great, realistic reaction to the proceedings, a mixture of joy that she is not crazy and meloncholy that the world she knew and loved is gone, that gives the whole thing a believability despite its madness. A really fun adventure into the unknown that can be enjoyed by all kinds of readers.
