Twig #2 by Skottie Young and Kyle Strahm picks up where the first issue ended.  Twig and Splat mourn the loss of the Pathsayer. They don’t let this slow them down though as they experiment with the equipment and find where they need to go, but it comes at a price.  They’ve killed the gem that Twig was meant to deliver…

The Story

Twig #2 continues everything that made the first issue such a hit.  It’s a simple adventure story.  Young does raise the stakes for our two adventurers though as they learn what consequences will come to pass should they fail.  As with the first issue, Young uses a travel montage as a way to introduce us to the worldbuilding and letting the art team flex their muscles.  Throughout the first two issues of Twig, Young has managed to hit all the right notes as he chronicles the quest of our two young adventurers.

The Art

Kyle Strahm and Jean-Francois Beaulieu continue to work well together to deliver amazing results.  Each panel within Twig #2 is full of creativity and fun as they work together to bring this wild world to life. While Strahm’s art is top-tier work, Beaulieu takes it a step further with the vibrancy of the colors that truly make it feel alien while maintaining an attitude of lightheartedness.  

Final Thoughts

Twig #2 continues with the same energetic fun that Skottie Young and Kyle Strahm brought to the first issue.  They continue their excellent worldbuilding as they lean into the fantastical. The art and colors (by Jean-Francois Beaulieu) come together to produce one of the most beautiful books on the market. Overall, this is a wonderful chapter in the overall story that they’re telling with Twig.
