Battle Beasts’ first issue focused on the back story of the beasts leading up to them heading to Earth. In Battle Beasts #2 we get to learn more about Bliss and her brother Tate. She is a genius linguist and while her job is taxing the steady income is worth it. Even when scared she does a good job keeping it together and helping out when she can. The Battle Beasts eventually get a chance to explain why they are there and she realizes what it is they are looking for.
While the focus on issue #2 might be on the humans there is still plenty of fighting going on between the beasts. We get to see a lot of different types of animals and how they fight through the issue which is really fun. Even with the large amounts of fighting in the middle of the comic there is quite a lot of movement forward in the plot of the story as well. It is refreshing to have a comic with both action and a story line that is progressing. Too often I think comics opt for one or the other.
The comic finished with a few revelations about what is going on that I don’t want to spoil, but it should lead to a really fun third issue. I’m thoroughly enjoying this series so far. They are not afraid to be over the top and somewhat ridiculous.
