Jirni #1

   Back again for the second volume, Jirni continues her quest to rescue her mother from a powerful sorcerer.

    In the first volume, she learned more about the mystery behind her heritage (and the reason she turns into a powerful purple fighting machine) - now she must face some overwhelming obstacles.

   So what writer J.T. Krul and artist Paolo Pantalena have created is a real delight - a rough-and-tumble battle for survival that hearkens back to classic stories by Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard.

    It's not deep, but it's very entertaining, with strong visuals - a battle for survival, fighting against the environment (and a huge wild animal) - and it's a lot of old-school fun.

Grade: B+
