Um. Wow.

While the previous volume in the Finder series gave me a small case of culture shock, this volume was all of the culture and none of the shock. The non-linear story was far less jarring now that I knew what to look for (for instance, Jaeger's tattoo fading, his hair growing, the different body shape of Brig, etc.) and it was easier to understand now that the initial introductions are all complete.

The artwork is gorgeous, the story engaging, and even moreso - I find myself thinking about...more

The first two volumes of Carla Speed McNeil's "FInder" series deliver a visual and narrative wallop. I can't deny my love for sequential art storytelling, nor can I deny that the storytelling part is painfully weak. But "Finder" is both beautiful in appearance and content. My only complaint would be that the story can be a little hard to follow, as the panels can jump from dreamscapes to reality, flashbacks to flashforwards, and all over the timeline. The "notes on the preceding" section of each...more

Jaeger's first adventure with the Grosvenor family continues. As he tries to figure out what to do when he thinks he sees his military father-figure going bad, Jaeger starts to test the bound of the man's sanity. Jaeger doesn't want to make the classic cop mistake-- leave the stalker alone until after he's hurt someone-- but he also wants to give his friend a chance. Trying to walk this line, Jaeger puts everyone in danger, creating a situation he cannot control and perhaps shoving his friend Br...more

Finder continues with the second installment of "Sin Eater," a tale of Jaeger, a rebel aboriginal in a futuristic world of domed cities and clan systems. The story continues much in the way it was begun, but there is some improvement in McNeil's storytelling as well as more plot overall. Still, Jaeger is every bit as disinteresting as a character, again crippling an otherwise compelling tale a bit too much.
Ed Erwin
A complex, rich story, told non-linearly. Though it was difficult to follow the story in "Sin-Eater 1", the pieces start coming together in this second book. There is lots that I must have missed on the first read-through, but it will be worth going back for a second read.

Check out my review of Vol. 01. They're basically one story and so everything I said applies here too :)
Kimberley
Read "Voice" first, and *then* laid my hands on this, and Sin-Eater #1. So that's what brought all these people together. And what a wonderfully unique leading character Jaeger is!
Brian
Brilliant well constructed speculative fiction of the future with amazing internal cohesiveness. Believable characters dealing with everyday issues not seen in real life or other fiction.

read about Carla Speed McNeill via Warren Ellis's Come In Alone book/artbomb.net (RIP) website...she creates worlds, has foot notes to her panels and writes good dialogue
Jonathan Towne
An obligatory finish to what began in sin-eater 1.

Jaeger is the sexiest imaginary man ever.
