The Plot! (5 / 5)
Heroineburgh Comics #2 expands the series’ universe with more characters than the first book. The book feature six tales, and three of the tales are the main stories of the book. Savanna has an unexpected battle against her sister, Panthyra. Quingpin is plotting to ruin the heroines’ reputations.
The best tale is Quingpin’s plot to ruin the Pittsburgh Heroine League’s reputation. The plan is a brilliant scheme to manipulate the public against the city’s superheroes. Wide spread damage from the battle would surely anger citizens with destroyed property.
Panthyra has an interesting origin story for her powers. A drug user, Panthyra gains her powers from a special drug. Her jealously and hatred for her sister, Savanna lead the path to violence and destruction. The story leaves me wanting more details of sisters’ toxic relationship.
Furthermore, every story flows very well to the transition of the next tale. I can easily understand the full story and character’s motives. The start of each tale reveals information about the characters.
Character Design: (4.5 / 5)
The superheroes are clearly inspired by classic heroes from DC comics. Heroineburgh’s heroes have unique backstories to make them stand out from other superheroines. Poderosa is a combination of Power Girl and Lois Lane. She also uses her position with the local TV station to promote herself.
Most of the villains have unique designs. They stand out from other known villains from popular comics. Their designs reflect their abilities. Sintilla is a thief with the unique ability of knowing her opponent’s next move. She fully uses this power to her advantage such as knocking out a cop in this issue.
My favorite design of a character from the story is Panthyra. Panthyra looks like a major threat for any superheroine. Her black costume makes her look intimidating.
The Art: (5 / 5)
The comic’s cover leaves a good first impression. Jason Wright did an amazing job with the cover’s design, and Benjamin Zeus Barnett drew beautiful and intense action in the interior art. The pages in the comic come to life. The artwork is simply amazing. The colors, details, and smoothness of the characters have great quality.
Furthermore, I think Heroineburgh Comics #2 has better artwork than Heroineburgh Comics #1. Both comics have good artwork. Heroineburgh Comics #2 has a modern style with bright colors and smooth designs.

Overall, Heroineburgh Comics #2 is a fun comic with superheroines, intense battles, and plenty of action. The impressive artwork shows the care and time in the comic’s development. The multiple plots in this issue will keep you interested. I hope the next comic will dive further into the new conflicts with Panthyra and Quingpin.
