Taking place in a dystopian future, Morgan Rosenblum with Nat Prinzi and Darkrose Studios brings the next installment of an action packed story featuring a team of super operatives battling threats. Originally conceived as a screen play it was adapted into a graphic novel with the help of a successful Kickstarter project.

After successfully extracting a stolen nuclear warhead from German dictator, General Heinz Kirklau, Treadwater discovers they have a stowaway, Kirklau’s second-in-command, Wolfgang Kulikov. Wolfgang agrees to divulge the location of a second warhead in exchange for the successful retrieval of his nephew Kostya. The General’s son. Having fulfilled their side of the bargain, Treadwater looks to collect on the information they were promised. Meanwhile, the Children of Chaos enlist the help of a notorious black-market arms dealer to acquire the remaining components for their biological weapon. Everything comes to a head when Kirklau unveils his master plan to invade decaying neighboring countries. With the political climate at a boiling point, Treadwater must deal with Kirklau once and for all.

The quick pace, ramps up the intensity as the plot thickens, but like the first volume the cliffhanger is jarring. Its number 2 of 5, so don't expect closure until the end. Morgan Rosenblum continues to craft a mature superhero story in a very possible near future reality. Mingchen Shen takes over artist duty on this volume, and his work looks very much like a painted storyboard.

Like Vol 1, TRDWTR Vol 2 is utterly addictive, with its damaged characters and breakneck paced storytelling.

TRDWTR Vol 2 is available now on Amazon
