(Author: Warren Ellis) + (Year: 2016) + (Goodreads)
I was pretty excited to read the second volume of Injection, but I must admit it was a disappointment.
Everything that I found interesting and worthwhile in the first volume was gone here. The new main character, Vivek Headland, was rather boring and overrated and the rest of the characters had basically no space to develop.
The story itself started out from something interesting, the Injection, and morphed into a dull saga of Headland’s peculiarities and strange sexual tastes. Add to that several long and boring monologues and a few random shooting sprees, and you are as far away from what was originally interesting in this story, as you can be.
The art was not as impressive either, mainly because it changed focus from interesting manifestations of the Injection to sex scenes and thugs.
I see how to some the mix of a world-changing virus, ghosts and cannibalism might be interesting, but for me it was over the top while actually not giving anything of value to the reader.
I might have completely lost interest in the series, unfortunately.
