The second issue of writer and Total Nonstop Action superstar Mick Foley’s R.P.M. continues with more action than last time. Windsor, along with a female companion, tries to flee from a barrage of criminals hot on his trail. The further Windsor gets the more hurdles are put in his away, like a helicopter trying to shoot down his car.
With the use of his hyper-kinetic depth perception, Windsor is able to dispose of almost anyone trying to stop him from making his delivery. The action may seem far fetched, but like a lot of action movies logistics are thrown out the window to delivery exciting entertainment. R.P.M.‘s second issue is no different.
More is explained on the upbringing Windsor experienced and with talks of his father starting up it gives the impression that the series is going to take a personal turn very soon. With all the fast-paced car shootouts, you get the feeling that twists and turns can come up at any moment. Thankfully the story does not suffer or gets too complex at the same time.
No noticeable changes in terms of the art. Keeping a constant look for the characters looks challenging enough where there is so much happening in one strip. Villains come off with a dirty look while the main characters vary in appearance depending on the situation.
Highly suggest checking out the first issue to understand the story and characters better. Also expect all the issues, until the last one, to end with a cliffhanger. Starting and concluding with a few twists looks like a common theme that will continue throughout the series.
