Gigantic #2 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Gigantic #2, about which I write the following sentences: "Its high concept 'Godzilla' meets 'Truman Show' approach -- the basic scenario is that the Earth was created as a reality show for aliens to watch, and they've injected a monster into the middle of it to boost ratings -- works well because it's simple and it's pretty damn cool. It's a concept that even my seven-year-old son can grasp, and he thoroughly enjoyed the first two issues as much as I did. But Rick Remender doesn't stop working after he's set the high concept loose. One of the things that makes this comic rise above the simplicity of its concept is that Remender includes evocative details that bring the concept to vivid, multi-colored life."

It's that-one-South-Park meets Ultraman! As genres go, giant monster fights seems perfect for comics. Too bad the Japanese movie poster cover wasn't nearly as good as the first issue's.

Verification word: insesgin, also known as moonshine.
