Whispers #2

Hmm, let's hope for something better from this post, 'cause that last one didn't do it for me...

Whispers #2:

Summary: This issue starts off with Sam deciding not to spy on Lily while having his out of body experience. Instead, he “sees” a demon eat a baby, which is shocking enough to wake him up. Sam decides to tell Lily about his new powers, but seeing as that she's trying to care for her injured father, she doesn't have the time, nor the patience to listen to Sam's stories. Sam heads back to his apartment and is met by his neighbor, a woman named Cali. Cali invites Sam into her apartment and naturally Sam tells her all about his nocturnal adventures... And she believes every word(!?). Cali recommends that Sam tries to figure out what the hell was going on with that demon, as opposed to fooling around with the minds of people he knew. Taking Cali's advice, that evening, Sam goes to sleep and decides to try to find the demon. This issue ends with Sam discovering that the demon was inhabiting the body of a businessman, and that the demon had it's eyes on a little girl.

Thoughts: This is such an odd series... I'm not quite sure what I think of it, if that makes any sense... I mean, it's definitely interesting, and the inclusion of the demon definitely spices things up, but I can't say I care much for any of the main characters. Sam is different, but not really all that interesting. Neither is Lily. We only just met Cali, so I can't say much about her. And Sam's acquaintances from last issue? They didn't show up in this one, so yeah, the baby-eating demon is the most interesting character in this comic right now... How weird is that?

Score: 6 1/2 out of 10.

If eating babies is good enough for Wolverine, it's good enough for this thing.
