In Review: The Dresden Files – Dog Men #2

Writer Mark Powers continues to get the voice of the characters bang on from what I know of them from the Jim Butcher books. 

Synopsis: Harry Dresden is a man on the edge—and that is something that can be dangerous to friend and foe alike. He’s been drafted by a senior member of the White Council of Wizards to investigate a series of murders in rural Mississippi. As always, there’s more afoot than is immediately apparent. The question is, will Harry’s state of mind keep him from seeing it, and will his actions lead him into direct conflict with the wizard who’s depending on his help?

Review: Dynamite’s new limited Dresden series continues and starts to gain a little momentum as Harry uncovers the true culprits behind the murder that he and Listens To Wind are investigating.

Things get a little tricky when Listens To Wind learns that there is a much bigger situation than the murder that they have to deal with, but can he persuade his headstrong friend Dresden.

As with the last issue Dresden is very much being schooled by Listens To Wind a Native American wizard who has lived a long and storied life.

The action kicks off in this issue when Harry and Listens To Wind seperate in order to spread the load of their investigation, but while Harry finds the murderer’s of the family that they are investigating. Listens To Wind comes across a bigger conspiracy in which more innocents are going to be hurt.

The characters in this story are well drawn and the colours are great.

I love Diego Galindo’s interpretation of Dresden’s supernatural Dog Mouse and the scenes in which we get to see Mouse in action are played out really well.

Writer Mark Powers continues to get the voice of the characters bang on from what I know of them from the Jim Butcher books.

Given how this issue ended. I’m super anxious to find out what more awaits Dresden in the next issue, which will be out next month.

In the meantime. This second issue will be on sale this coming Wednesday.
