This, the second issue of the series offers some added insight into our protagonist’s plight and showcases a darker and perhaps eviler side of him, but despite this, there are still so many questions left to be answered. While often having questions at the beginning of a comic series, novel, or film can be a good thing, I still find myself searching for the story and asking, “What’s going on here?” It feels to me like each time a door opens, another closes, and I questioned whether I was missing the point or had somehow overlooked something, but I don’t think that’s the case.
Although there was a good deal of blood, guts, and bugs, Regression #2 didn’t have nearly the same visual impact that Issue #1 had. Is this the comic’s fault? I don’t know. Issue #1 came out swinging in terms of being visually unsettling and left quite an impression on me. I went into my reading of Regression #2 expecting to be shocked, and that just didn’t happen.
Regression #2 didn’t work for me, as it wasn’t nearly as intense as I had hoped it would be.
Still, I am going to continue reading the series because I believe that it is going to be great. I see this issue as a bit of a misstep, but am confident that it will soon find its way back to being an awesome series.
