In Issue #2 of the four-part series, Locher maintains the slapstick-style comedy of buddy agents Gibson and Hatch, which easily keeps the pace of the comic moving and this reader chuckling incessantly. In addition, we meet the agents' superior, Senior Agent Ballard, whose fantastic, deadpan delivery reminds me fondly of The X-Files' A.D. Skinner. The reader is also introduced to several new characters - namely the baddies who are both in possession of the Freedahken Crystal and intending to eliminate the Freedahken alien race - as well as to the backstory that led to Area 51's involvement with the crystal.
Jimenez's art continues to shine, fashioning the agents and their world in the most wonderfully cartoonish way. The humor and style could easily lend itself to an animated series, and I can only hope that the creators will see such success with Unit 44 as it finds its audience and transitions to various adaptations of media.
I would highly recommend that readers pick up Issue #2 of Unit 44, which is now available digitally through ComiXology!
