‘Danger Girl: Renegade #2’ – Advance Comic Book Review

The adventure continues as we explore more of the life and backstory of rogue adventurer Abbey Chase. After a flashback to her teen years, we see her about to get caught up in a human trafficking ring, while apparently thinking that it’s some kind of beauty pageant. Of course, we know Abbey Chase better than that, and while she plays dumb very well, it’s clear she has something up her sleeve.

Her main goal, though, isn’t just to take down the scum of the Earth, or even to recover some priceless jewelry in the process, though both make nice side benefits. What she really wants to do is find her father, who left 14 years ago on an important mission to save the world and never returned—though he promised that one day he would.

It’s still a little disappointing that the full Danger Girl team isn’t part of this adventure. Maybe they’ll show up at the end, like they did in Mayday. Concentrating on one at a time is interesting, but I prefer seeing the full team in action.

Still, there’s plenty to love about this arc so far, and this issue in particular. Plenty of action, plenty of adventure, and, as always, just a touch of tongue-in-cheek humor to let you know that the comic doesn’t take itself too seriously. I’d call it mindless fun, but Danger Girl has actually always been a very smart comic, if you care to look. Either way, though, it’s an entertaining comic all around. If you’re looking for a good action/adventure/spy comic, I definitely recommend Danger Girl: Renegade.
