R.P.M. #2 – Advanced Review
Published on Monday, January 3, 2011 by

Writers: Mick Foley with Shane Riches
Artist: Jose Holder
Cover Artist: Brian Stelfreeze

This issue moves the story forward, taking and adding more pieces to the puzzle, setting them all up for a collision. We learn more about Revere and his childhood and see his hyper-kinetic depth perception in action alot. This issue is a straight up action movie waiting to happen. Car chases, shoot-outs and some stunts that would look great on the big screen.

Some of it just seems a bit far fetched, but then it’s a comic, so it’s okay. It would still translate well to the big screen. If The Italian Job can have Mini-Coopers running down the hallways of a mansion, then this can have a smart car riding down in an elevator.

They do strain the edges of believability though. It hits the line and almost goes over. The bit with the car flipping over the rock and the guy getting speared by the fishing pole is pretty funny. He does recover a bit too quickly though.

If you treat this like you would an action movie, taking it for what it is, then some of the minor problems can go away and you can sit back and enjoy the ride. And it’s a fun ride.

Revere even shows a gentlemanly side to him. That’ll score him points at the end.

Holder’s work still has the Stelfreze feel to it. The linework isn’t as good as the first issue. Some of the figures are messier then previously. He makes up for that by playing around with the page layouts alot. There are some unique and varied layouts that help keep the action moving and speed the story along.
