Previous Review: Unearth #1
With the team trapped deep beneath Earth’s surface, in a unique and freighting ecosystem filled with big, bad bugs, running out of oxygen is the least of their concerns.
Unearth #2 adds additional depth to an already thought-provoking series, and although the pacing slows some in the book’s first half, come issue’s end, the excitement returns and Cullen Bunn and Kyle Strahm manage to gain momentum for the third issue. Baldemar Rivas’ art continues to impress, although there wasn’t nearly enough space written into the script for him to flex his creative muscles.
Though not as thrilling as the debut, Unearth #2 adds depth and detail, all the while continuing to excite and entertain.
