Overall, I’d have to say that this chapter in the Joe Golem series is pretty consistent with the first.
This comic book has several things I love in it and while I do enjoy it, I’m not digging it as much as I had hoped. Still, this is kind of cool and unlike just about everything else on the comic store shelf.
The story here follows a new case but looking at the bigger picture, it reveals more about the main character, as well as his dream-state flashbacks.
What’s strange, is that I find the flashbacks to be more interesting than the main stories in this series. I want to know what the visions means and how they are going to play out.
Sadly, the cases the detective works kind of get in the way of the parts of the story I enjoy more.
That being said, this is a cool, original idea and despite not being fully on board with it, it’s better written than most comics in the modern era.
Pairs well with: other Joe Golem comics, as well as Mike Mignola’s Hellboy and B.P.R.D. series.
