This issue picks up where Issue #1 left off. Somewhat. We’re not sure how much time between issues has passed.

We see the monster hunter running through the streets of Venice pursued by cops. The narration is as if someone else was talking to the hunter, telling him he must do what he has to in order to hunt. And what he does shows us that the hunter might not be the true hero he came across as.

What he is hunting is a twisted Cinderella. The hints dropped in the demon?/witch?/murderers talking is enough to come to the conclusion that this is the Cinderella from Fairy Tales but horribly twisted and warped. There’s also a tie-in to the Pied Piper.

The hunter shows up and ends up winning, but along the way he is saved by Roxanne, the woman from last issue. We also learn the hunter’s name finally, Gabriel Enchante.

The story is nicely paced. It flows smoothly from scene to scene. There is none of the more shocking elements that were in the first issue (the orgy for example), but it’s definately not G-rated. The script is strong, Roxanne reacts as you would expect her to. She’s got the “out of her element” feel to her, but shows a nice strength.

Laiso’s art is nice. He’s got a good sense of layout and storytelling. His work is nicely detailed. The twisted Cinderella is well designed and drawn.

There is one odd sequance though. When Gabriel tells Roxanne his name, there’s a large panel of her looking shocked, but the shocking revelation caption is in the next panel. It’s a bit odd as Roxanne’s reaction happens before the text piece but I think it was just a bit of confusion between the creative team members as the page looks good and can relate it to the words, it’s just the bubbles in the wrong place.

GG Studios Gore #2 receives
4 out of 5

Another solid issue. If you’re a fan of horror or twisted fairy tales, this would be worth picking up.
