Turn off the Lights

Jennifer Blood #2 – Review

It’s
a Tuesday, the kids are in school and Jennifer’s back to “work”
by spending the day down at the pier attached to the local yacht
club. At the pier, Jennifer gets things started off by doing a little
marine recon. In a few moments she has analyzed her target, Steve, a
head member of a local crime family. He resides in his yacht just off
the coast. Accompanying Steve on his yacht, are a handful of lightly
armed men for security. Content with her intel Jennifer ponders the
right type of firearms that will complement the job.

Enjoy Jen’s
thoughts as the 9mm debate continues. Once at home Jen and the family
welcome home Allen after a hard day at work; who is just in time to
meet the new neighbors, Jack and Laura. Jen does her best small talk
while sizing up the new couple. By the look of things Jack could be a
problem. After the family dinner and some extra “comatose coca”
for the family,
Jen puts the family to bed and heads off to work.

Steve
and his brothers in crime sit on the boat talking about the hit on
their car stealing ring (See Jennifer Blood #1 review). Theories and
ideas are kicked around about who could be behind it. The one thing
they all can agree on is that they need to be ready for the next
attack. Meanwhile, Jen places a little explosive surprise underneath
the boat. Once back on land Jen handles the three guards in a
“Professional” manner. Now on the bridge of the boat, Jen gives
three unlucky guards a quick
lesson
in suppressors. She even gives herself time to prepare her calling card. Content with their mobster pow wow, Steve’s
affiliates leave him alone to enjoy some special attention from his
female companion. That’s when Jennifer make her presence known with
revenge on her mind.

Garth
Ennis (The Boys) and Adriano Batista (Jungle Kitty) are back with
issue #2 of Jennifer’s Blood. It has everything that made the first
issue
great,
Jennifer, guns and well… Jennifer.

Garth keeps Jennifer’s now classic (in my mind) diary narration along
with her sassy firearms 101 lessons going.
There’s
something about a modest little house wife telling me how to handle
close
range
combat, suppressor and 9mm that makes me giggle with joy. She’s a blast to follow around just to see what she’ll do next. Adriano
does his best to keep everything looking great, violence and all. A
task which he achieves in spades. The shining moment in this book and what turned out to be compleate surprise was the reward of a little backstory. Adding to Jen’s character development was just icing on the cake. All and all
Jennifer Blood is beyond fun and is shaping up to be one hell of an
entertaining ride…Honestly.

Overall Score – 9.1/10
