Find out why Brian K. Vaughan says “Copperhead is the best Image debut of the year and my favorite new comic,” as Sheriff Clara Bronson and Deputy Boo continue their investigation of a multiple homicide just outside the Copperhead city limits. Meanwhile, Zeke Bronson gets in way over his head in the Badlands.




After Copperhead #1 I dived head first in this one and now that I’ve read it, I’m glad that I did. It’s equally good as the first one and ends nicely. It was in continuation with the first one solving the mystery further (or complicating it first and then solving it.) I quite liked it’s ending as it was a subtle and a bit low key which obviously left our Sheriff agitated for the next part’s beginning.

Now that she’s pissed I’m sure there will be more action to look forward to. I loved the illustrations in this as well as the world building. It had some incidents that hinted subtly towards other potent threats to Sheriff Bronson which might sprout up in the future.

I’m eagerly waiting for the next parts to be available on NetGalley soon so that I can read them all ASAP! If you’re looking for a great graphic series then go ahead and get your hands on Copperhead. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
