    1. If you thought the second volume of The Beauty would follow on from the first, think again - this is an entirely new cast of characters and storyline! In Volume 2 we meet a gangster who rips off his employers and uses The Beauty to completely change his appearance to escape. We’re also introduced to a trans hitman who becomes a target for her bosses after being set up. In the first volume we discovered that The Beauty was an STD that made anyone who had it extremely physically attractive - for [...]


    2. Note: this is a revision of my initial review, wherein I was confused about what was going on. I reread the first three volumes and now think I am starting to understand the chronology, so am appreciating it better. Thanks to Skye for her help with this, too.Well, I read the second volume right after the first, and it was completely different. To recap, The Beauty is an STD that makes you perfectly beautiful, which is what most people really want, though we are discovering it is high risk to get [...]


    3. Haun seems to have completely forgot about the plot of volume 1. The Beauty is only touched on in this book. In the first issue a drug dealer cleverly uses the Beauty to hide in plain sight after he double crosses his gang. Then we move into the story of a trans hitwoman who's a badass. The stories are very well-written, just odd that we seemed to put the story Haun was building on hold, maybe it was so he could catch up as the artist. The art in here is not very good, nor is the coloring, but i [...]


    4. Not at all what I expected, this was quite a departure from the first volume. The story of a hitwoman and those around her, The Beauty was a background element to her tale.


    5. Wow, I didn't realize this volume was going to be this short. Hrm. I think this is going to get major props for having a trans main character, so there's that. But now that I'm thinking about it I enjoyed the first volume better. I liked the characters in this one and the story in the first, which is odd and kind of difficult to review. It's not like this was a waste of time to read but I don't know. Maybe check it out from the library or just buy one or two issues to start.Individual issue re [...]


    6. Biography of a hitwoman.What the hell is this? Volume 2 of The Beauty has virtually nothing to do with The Beauty. None of the characters are back, the noble-scientists-vs-evil-Big-Pharma plot is gone, nobody combusts, the beauty itself barely even gets a mention. (Okay, one character does infect himself as a disguise, that was clever.)This is just a (quite-decent) revenge story. A deadly assassin antihero goes on a rampage against the gang that killed her family. I enjoyed it well enough, butn, [...]


    7. I was kind of hoping that this one would follow on from the first one (which I loved), but it didn't. *sad face* That's what I get for blindly buying the next book in the series without reading into it first! This one introduces a whole bunch of new characters to the mix, but it doesn't flow with the story line of the first TP. Hopefully the next instalment satisfies my curiosity for what happens next!


    8. 2/3 A missed opportunity StarsI am starting to fear that the covers might become the most fascinating thing about this story. I enjoyed this new volume but I think it heavily missed the mark: it is a prequel with a different cast of characters and the storyline is very traditional. As prequel, it doesn't provide tension release after the cliffhanger ending of the previous collection and I was very much looking forward to know how that would unfold, but it also fails in providing more insight in [...]


    9. Volume two is an entirely separate entity from Volume 1, telling the story of a group of criminals with whom the Beauty virus intersects (rather peripherally, in most cases). It's an enjoyable story, albeit exceptionally violent, and the characters are interesting. But it has very little in it that really requires the basic conceit of the series to function; it really is just a crime family story. The one interesting twist (what does the Beauty virus do to a trans individual?) is hardly even add [...]


    10. I really enjoyed Volume 1, but Volune 2 was a total let-down. Theough I found the different drawing style interesting, it made it all feel like a completely different series.The old people/ storylines were dropped (for the moment) and only in a few rare moments the theme of the first volume was picked up at all.


    11. Well this was very different from the first volume. There was a whole new cast of characters, a different art style, a different plot honestly this felt like a completely different series to the first volume. Although I liked this volume, it just wasn't as great as the first one. Props for having a Trans Woman of colour as the main character, loved that! Volume 2 is set before volume 1 where the world hasn't found out yet about the negative side effects of the beauty, I was disappointed though t [...]


    12. This was more of a crime story than the first volume and featured a whole new cast of characters. It is set before anyone knows the perils of The Beauty and the disease isn't the feature of the story, but it is a handy way for criminals to change their identities and become unrecognizable. Although they were both killers I couldn't help but like Timo and Ez. Ez was damn glorious and it was exciting to see a beautiful, sexy trans woman kicking butt as a deadly assassin.


    13. So Vol. 2 changes things up as Haun introduces new characters and (one would assume) temporarily moves away from the plot in Vol. 1. He also has three guest artists contributing and that brings in new stylistics to the artwork. Chronologically, this seems to all take place before Vol. 1. The new characters (one is trans) are assassins in a small crime family. Each uses The Beauty. One to change his identity and escape after ripping off the mob, and the other to smooth her gender transformation. [...]


    14. This was an interesting addition to the series. It didn't pick up where volume 1 left off but actually gave the reader insight to individuals who used "the beauty" to further advance themselves prior to knowing it's affects. I was really interested in the storyline but I couldn't give it more than 3 stars because I'm not sure how it's going to tie into the rest of the volumes. It was actually pretty sad and I hope that I get to see some sort of resolution in the next volume.


    15. Finally, a second volume of The Beauty! Unfortunately, it skips back to before everyone starts burning up and becomes a rather generic thriller-style comic about gangs and revenge. I did enjoy it, but it wasn't exactly what I wanted. I didn't care about the characters very much, and I would like to see how this ends up connecting to the overall plot. Props for having a trans character though that didn't die by the end, and was the main character to boot!


    16. Not quite what I was expecting. I figured we'd continue the story from volume 1, but this looks at a new group of characters, as well as jumping back to the past, before people knew that "the beauty" was a death sentence (besides remaking your appearance, etc.). This is a fairly generic story of criminals on the run, double-crosses, and revenge on angry crime bosses, but I really enjoyed it. One of the characters. a Hispanic gangster, six foot tall and 3oo pounds heavy, takes "the beauty" after [...]


    17. Very disappointed. Instead of picking up with detectives Vaughn and Foster from the first volume, the second volume moves away from the initial plot onto a seemingly unrelated tangent about a trans hitwoman named Ezarae. The artwork is also suffering greatly in this volume. The line work is lazy and the overall look is that of a hurried storyboard, not a polished and finished product.Aside from sharing the same title and being labeled as a continuation, this work feels like it is in no shape or [...]




    18. I didn't know this volume would be about a new cast of characters and it wasn't as great. I did like the diversity, but it didn't follow the plot of the first novel and that is what I liked about this story, the new STD that everyone whats.


    19. I loved the first volume of this, but the second one is a little less reliant on the conceit of the sort of “beauty drug” that’s taking over. The result is not a bad story as much as a story that didn’t draw me in the way the first one did, but the flip side is how it makes the trajectory of where this series is going clearer. I’ll stick with it for sure, but this volume absolutely left me less excited about the series on a whole.


    20. Mrmm, I'm kind of torn about the second volume of The Beauty. I loved the first one, from concept to writing and art. While the change of pace in the second doesn't bother me particularly (if the creators are planning on having a long run, it makes sense for them to introduce a new arc, considering the fast progression in Vol. 1) and the addition of a trans woman as one of the main characters is awesome, I cannot cope with the art style of chapters 8 to 10, by Brett Weldele. I just can't. It's o [...]


    21. "And now for something completely different!"This may or may not have been better than the first. I'm not sure, because I read the first bit - which I did enjoy - then read the last few pages, then returned it. I'm sure at some point, this plot will dovetail with the plot in the first book, but it seems entirely unrelated for now.This series may have worked better as a traditional book, honestly; the story does seem to be there, but the medium and particularly the pacing of the delivery inherent [...]


    22. While Vol. 2 takes a significant detour from Vol. 1 in terms of story and character, I really enjoyed it. The Beauty is in evidence, but what we are presented with here is a first rate crime thriller. Why Haun chose to do this I couldn't say and I'll be curious to see if Vol. 3 continues what has been shown here or if returns to the story line from Vol. 1. Or perhaps it could combine both. Either way, Haun has maintained my interest here.


    23. The series' somewhat heavy-handed central device (a disease which makes you gorgeous - but at what terrible price?) takes a back seat this time out. Which in some ways might be for the best, but leaves us with a story that would only need a couple of minor tweaks and a lot less sunshine to pass for an arc of Criminal.


    24. The writing and art improved. The characters were more interesting. The Beauty was relegated to a plot device instead of being the whole plot. Enjoyable, but not a stand-out from crime / gangster comics out there.


    25. Um, okay. Way to completely drop volume one's storyline for something almost completely different. As cool as a female hitman character story was, I wanted more of volume one! Or at least two to be better connected in some way! Most likely will not continue with this series.


    26. I really don't get this whole volume. It seemingly follow a new cast of characters that we haven't seen before. To be honest I couldn't care less about these cast of characters and I just want to go back to the main storyline.


    27. I thought Volume 1 introduced a real interesting world/premise. But Volume 2 didn't really follow through. and could have been set anywhere
