So I Read COPRA: Round 2

A 250 word (or less) review of COPRA Volume 2
by Michael Fiffe; Bergen Street Press

This is part of an ongoing story. To read about the beginning of it go here.

COPRA Round 2 continues the ass-kicking story of COPRA, a covert government team mercenaries and assassins, who are sent on dangerous, strange suicide missions. Following the explosive events of their last mission, this volume follows the battered COPRA team as they deal with the aftermath. In Round Two COPRA buries one of their own, goes on a suicide mission to a dystopian alternate universe, and takes down the government officials who betrayed them. COPRA remains one of the best overall comics I read. The story is pure genre comic gleeful excess providing brutal, frequently surreal action presented with superlative artwork. COPRA is also one of the most interesting comics I’ve read on a technical level: it is absolutely filled with the wonky, experimental storytelling and distinctive style that I absolutely love to look at and try to understand. It is no exaggeration when I say COPRA is one of the smartest, prettiest, and brashest comics on the stands. It is also a book you should absolutely be reading.
